Thankful Thursdays

I'm sorry I missed Wordless Wednesdays... I was having computer isuues.  Anyway, I have a great picture... but I'm going to save it.

Originally I was going to be thankful for my job... and there is a story behind that, but I just found out I won a Bumkins All In One Diaper from Nicki's Diapers.  So, Nicki's Diapers - I am thankful for you!

I am seriously so excited - my husband and coworkers for sure think I am crazy, but I don't care.  I am just so excited.  I now am officially starting cloth diapering!

I have been going back and forth on cloth diapering... not on whether or not I want to, cause I do want to, but on jumping in and buying them, which is why I haven't officially bought any cloth diapers yet.  I may have written about this a bit before, but anyway... my husband lost his job back in December and although he has had a ton of interviews, he hasn't had any offers yet.  He isn't sure he likes the idea of cloth diapering and he's the one home with C all day.  Then there is the whole thing of me working.  Ideally I want to be a stay-at-home mommy, but that certainly won't happen until my hubby gets a job.  And really - I don't want to be adding to the laundry time (by adding in cloth diapers) when my free time is already so limited.  I could do a diaper service, but I'm cheap... achem... a money-watcher.  Although I know 'they' say that a diaper service is still cheaper than buying disposables, but seriously with all the bargain hunting and couponing I do for disposables and wipes, combined they only cost us about $25 a month... if even that much, so I just don't see it.  Anyway, here's hoping my hubby finds a job soon.  We have a case of diapers (about 200 count) that we just opened... so I'm hoping to be using all cloth by the time those are gone... good luck to us on that!  Thanks again Nicki's Diapers for getting us started!
