Bubby isn't progressing as quickly as I'd like with the potty training. I've been using cloth diapers and cloth training pants while we're home. When we're out and at night, I put him in pull-ups. Thankfully, I found a large box of Huggies pull-ups at Big Lots for $24.00. I'm hoping they'll last him until he's fully trained!
Baby Girl is in cloth diapers part-time, too. I've only made her three so far, and they're used up in half a day, but they work well, so I'll make her more.
Things are just so expensive! I priced out what I'd need to make home-made formula and it's really expensive. The doctor's office gave me some free samples (enough for 3 or 4 days). That'll help. Oh, how I wish I could still nurse!
The media is abuzz with this whole fiscal crisis and bailout. It's hard to avoid and hard to not worry about it. I know the Lord will provide for us, but it is very real that we may have to really cut back. On one hand, it bothers me because I know it'll be an added stresser, especially on hubby. On the other hand, I'm up for the challenge and have already been taking steps to prepare for a possible economic depression.
I've always been drawn to a simpler life, a life closer to God's creation. I've sometimes wondered if it's God's way of helping me prepare for a time when the best way to survive is to be agrarian.
