  1. Tomatoes (aside from heirloom varieties) generally are produced by slave labor as well. That sounds like a joke, but it's not.
  2. This is totally how I feel the first few times my babies sleep well. I think it's just recovering from the extreme sleep deprivation. I have heard the same from other mom friends.
  3. I found that soaking stinky workout clothes in warm water and detergent before washing really helps get the stink under control. When I had a top loader, I would just let the washer fill and agitate enough to mix things up, then stop the machine. Now that I have a front loader, I have soaked like this in a bucket or a sink.
  4. I'd say close to 15 loads a week. We cloth diaper our twins, and also use mostly cloth cleaning and personal care items around the house. My older kids are messy and DH is not a re-wearer. DH would probably only use a towel once as well for himself or one of the children if he's supervising bath/shower time, if I didn't rescue them from the hamper on a fairly regular basis. ETA: We are 2 adults and 4 children.
  5. I'm so very glad for all of you. Hugs and prayers.
  6. I have gotten two boxes and I really enjoyed both of them. I should get another soon . . . .
  7. My DH used to have a shirt that said, "No, I will not fix your computer." LOL
  8. Can I get a "hear, hear," for a ban on pantyhose? Those things are heinous. Full disclosure: I am wearing a wonderfully comfortable pair of leggings right this minute.
  9. I won't click on their ridiculous excuse for "news". My body, my clothes. Enough with the slut shaming.
  10. Ernestine Vanessa I can't remember the second one's name Dunstan Mario Deirdre something Can you tell I was the horribly indulged youngest child?
  11. The boy-o gets his clipped at home by either me or DH. We have gotten reasonably good at blending. And when you're 4, you can afford to look a little weird sometimes. :) Oldest gets hers cut every 3 months or so at an inexpensive salon for $15 + tip. Twin toddlers just have baby mullets, so they're getting home trims for now.
  12. I wish I could give you a hug and really fully express my admiration for you. I remember your announcement, too. Congratulations on a year.
  13. I didn't change my name, though we live in a pretty conservative area and go to a conservative church. I saw no reason to change my name--it's just a cultural tradition that I didn't particularly care for. Our kids have both names and oldest picks and chooses which one she wants to use at any given time. It's fine with me. It does seem to confuse people around here, but I don't mind.
