I know, I can't believe it either!

I'm posting twice in one week!!!

This will not be astounding, I assure you...I just wanted to share a few things:
First of all, I made my own laundry detergent yesterday:-) Yeah, I know, it's weird. I don't care. It costs about 1 cent per load and I am pleased. It didn't take long to make. It was actually very easy. The hardest part is grating the soap into the pot on the stove. I've done 2 loads already with it, and it does the trick! The only thing is there is no scent, for those of you who like that sort of thing. Here's the link for the site I found the recipe on: http://www.thefamilyhomestead.com/laundrysoap.htm

Secondly, and I should really take pics of these and post them, I got diapers from my mom and grandmother! They are so adorable :-) For those of you who are now wondering how Huggies are adorable, I'm using cloth nappies...again, I know, weird. And again, I don't care. I'm using a very close knock off of the BumGenius brand. And I've gotten to use my new laundry soap on these little things, because you have to wash them three times before the first use. The first use, I know, is a while away, but I'm taking advantage of my comfort and energy level and doing all the baby laundry I can!

Thirdly, in light of the busy holiday season I have a great link to share with you ladies from the ladies at GirlTalk...so here you go! http://girltalk.blogs.com/girltalk/2008/09/managing-busy-s.html

Much love to you all!

p.s. Isn't it funny that the "i before e" rule does not apply to Weird?

Hey, I am so glad to hear that you are using cloth. We have used cloth since Kaelyn was about 4 months old and I love it!!! And yes, BumGenius.

Cloth diapers all the way! Homemade detergent (I totally want to weird it up with you on that one)! Two posts in one week!

You're a BumGenius, Joel.
