I know, I've been lame lately......

I still haven't found time to come back and post my top 5. I definitely will, I am planning on trying to make time tomorrow night.

We cancelled our cable last month, and it finally shut off last Friday (they don't seem to care about shutting it off the day you stop getting billed for it). You'd think that with no tv to watch (we only have one super fuzzy channel C-Span, yuck) I would have more time to blog. I guess no tv means more productive in general. We have been keeping up on the house, and I've been trying to get to the gym most days. I went early Monday morning, it was really packed.

The cloth diapers are working out great. I have figured out a good system, and I even came up with a solution to keep her from getting her diapers off all the time. It was getting really frustrating, and I finally decided that if I put them on backwards she wouldn't be able to get them off. I'm pretty sure I must have heard that from someone before and it finally caught up to me, whoever told me that, thank you.

I promise to come back tomorrow. Seth is wanting to watch a movie on netflix and our other computer is ill, so I feel like I should share mine with him. (I'm so generous, aren't I?)


  1. I think it's just a busy time of year, period. Everyone is trying to get a lot of things done before the holidays, and then there are the holidays themselves to it any wonder we all feel exhausted come January???

  2. November is always the start of the busy times! I grew up without cable (something my husband cannot fathom) :) Have a great weekend!

  3. Great tip on the cloth diapering front! I'll be remembering that for later, I hope. No cable - ack, I'm not sure I'd want to do that, but then our cable bill is so small it'd be kind of useless dumping it of all things - it costs less than our netflix bill (of course we only get like 30 channels, but hey, we like those 30 channels).

  4. Don't know if you are needing more cloth diapers or not, but Good Humans is having a super sale on CDs. I just bought one. I will let you know how they work. They were cheap!

    It took 5 months but I am finally dealing with stinky diapers! Not fun! Make sure all of the soap residue is getting out of the diapers. I just bought some Bio Kleen detergent, hopefully it will get the stink out!

    No cable! So sorry to hear this! I couldn't make it! Kuddos to you friend!

  5. We went a year without TV...we didn't get a single channel. I don't know if we could do it now. I grew up without cable, but we got the local channels.

    Glad the cloth diapers are working out!

  6. It IS a busy time of year.

    We asked to have our cable shut off on November 1st and lo and behold, it's still on. Dunno what's up with that.

    I just wonder, once Comcast actually gets around to shutting it off, if we're going to survive. There will probably be some national/international disaster and I bet I'll be on the phone to Comcast likity split!
