i feel kinda low.

as in i don't feel good.

i feel very large, but all i find myself eating are handfuls of chocolate chips.

we just got a call from school.

3rd welter down.

actually little S is on the fence and i went in today too & got a perscription.

back to the pediatrician for the 3rd time this week.

so actually there are only 2 healthy welters left and they are of the male variety.

no one has it as bad as S did.

i hate that in-between sick period. i don't like giving the kids meds unless they really really need it.

but i also don't like sickness spreading thru our house. and i don't like them being "kind of" down for weeks.


i am completely obsessed with cloth diapers.

it's pretty much all i think about.

people are talking to me, but all i'm thinking about is washing, sunning, colors, snap or hook & loop, brands, sales... etc.

i even started putting them on my cabbage patch dolls and making the kids take turns changing them.

i think i've completely gone off the deep end.

i still have 2 months to go.

this could get bad.

i'm thinking of biting all my nails off.

having long nails is overrated.

now i'm always worried about scratching the kids or breaking a nail.

it's just an added stress i don't need.

the kids are back in soccer.

they love it.

some of my beloved salt water sandals are broken.

i sent in pictures and a letter to the company.

i'm hoping for a result like in the movie summer school.

speaking of peanut butter, i made these the other day and i really like them.

It's healthy to talk. Gets it out of your system. Thanks for sharing your life, Nellie. It puts everything in perspective. :)

i know how you feel. all things pass and you will handle it all. i love you. do they have colored cloth diapers now?

Jenna Guizar said...

hahahaha I can't even handle this post. It's the best thing ever.

I realize everyone else is saying hang in there, but honestly, you haven't come close to hitting rock bottom if you can't stop thinking about cloth diapers - that's basically like living in Heaven.

..but seriously. praying for your family's health and spirits being lifted!

ohhh...I miss you!!! You have been on my mind so much lately. Maybe that means I need to bring you some homemade choc chip cookies?! I hope everyone feels better soon. And I love the pics of big S! xoxo

Even after cloth diapering three wee ones (the youngest of whom is now 21 months), I still obsess over them - the colors! the accessories! the snaps! the velcro! the beauty of seeing them drying in the sunshine! the depressing realization that this will soon come to an end...and then I go and eat chocolate chips by the handful. :)
