Poor neglected blog.

It's been so long since I've posted I'm sure everyone's given up on me. I've almost given up on myself. Why don't I feel like writing? I don't know. Been busy. Been knitting a little. Been doing laundry as usual. The baby goes to sleep before 8 and stays in bed until 7. I have NO EXCUSES!!!! I'm helping my mom out still, but not THAT much.

Oh, yeah, I guess I've been on Diaper Swappers a lot again. Crabcakes, who isn't nearly as crabby as he was the first three months, is already growing out of his medium cloth diapers and into larges. I tried to buy a lot of one-size diapers, and those are still working. I've sold a couple that are too small. Been going to the post office a lot. I used to HATE going to the post office. Now I'm getting used to it. I always forget to bring a pen, and the postal worker always gives the boys lollypops.

There's an opening at Midnight Oil on the Hyena Cart. I'm thinking about joining the WAHM crowd and putting some of my yarns and knits up for sale. You know, the ones I haven't actually made yet.
I DO have ideas! It's just, the yarn is still wet.

Yeah, so I've let my childbirth education certification lapse. Haven't taught a class in 10 months. Haven't written anything for paid publication in five years. Why shouldn't I try something new? If it doesn't work out, it doesn't. It's $20 start-up for the congo and the knitting pattern, and if I don't sell anything, I'll just use it for my own kids!

The boys dyed their own yarn with Kool-Aid today! They picked out all the colors they wanted at the grocery store, and after lunch I set them up on the kitchen floor with some pyrex bowls and a turkey baster. I would load those photos, but I've already been on the computer too long, and UberDad's trying to sleep on the couch. He has a cold and didn't want to keep me awake with his coughing. Hmm.

btw...do you happen to be getting rid of any small fb's? My daughter, gigantic at birth, turned out to be a tiny little thing and is STILL in small diapers at 7 months of age.

Phew! I finally remmebered to check some blogs and thought I'd be way behind on your's. LOL, only had one to read! Hooray! I'm glad I am not the only one who has fallen off the face of hte earth lost in motherhood, cleaning, errands and feeling super nauseaus all the time.

neat idea on the knitting stuff! i still need to relearn how to knit since I only made one scarf and my mom started it and my sister finished it and you can see where I tried to and its all a jumbled mess.

I might dig out the FBs for baby #3 if I'm not too lazy like I was with #2 and being a single mom but seeing as how I will be a single mom again for part of baby #3's life, I might be too lazy again. Glad to see you have some connections that I could maybe sell mine to! :)
