Diapers and Dishes

Is she busy refinishing the floor with recycled polyurethane and homespun wool pads?

I wish.

I've been shivering with strep throat. I pulled John's crib next to my bed and set out the junk--er, imagination--box for the big kids.

And my mom scoffed at me for buying felt and plastic spoons at the estate sale Saturday!

The biggest blessing of all has been a freezer full of Once A Month meals. Don't know what I would have done without them.

Back soon after I catch up on diapers and dishes...

I hope you feel better! I think strep throat has got to be the worst. I would rather have the stomach flu! Take good care...and good for you for planning ahead with those freezer meals. You rock!

Get well soon Meredith. You are amazing to have your sense of humour and witty words (homespun wool pads cracked me up) while ill.

I'm so glad you are feeling better. Strep throat is really rough, and it dangerous as well. I hope none of the litlle ones have it.

I think that I would have sprung for disposable diapers if I were sick, although I love cloth diapers. Shivering with a fever and washing dirty diapers just doesn't seem to mesh! Poor moms never get a break, do they?

Meredith,
Sorry to hear you were sick! It is so hard when mom isn't feeling well b/c life still goes on, ya know! Love the mom store post, we do something similar and I too struggle with being consistent, with the stocking and shopping!
