If anyone decides to try my padded panties idea, I would suggest leaving your "pads" separate and pin them in. I am having a hard time getting them dry in a day's time on the line. The dryer doesn't dry them well either, because the sensor thinks it's dry because the thin fabric is.
Well, I got our first post-a/c, post- line drying electric bill. Yikes! If it weren't for the line drying, we could not afford the a/c! The bill is the same as it has been basically every month since we've lived in town. Earlier today I was working on a cost comparison of expenses of living in town to living at home. We could be saving about $200 a month!
'da Dad and I had a date/meeting last week and were able to settle a few things. We are not taking time off school until the move,and I am going to print next year's school books ahead of time. We also set a budget for the baby, birth supplies (we home birth), school supplies, and the things we need to finish the kitchen and bathroom in the new house. It was nice to look ahead together and make some plans. I am so blessed to have a husband and friend all in one.
I am pretty sure we are not putting a garden in. I will probably still have some tomatoes in buckets, but that will be it.
I have been doing a little sewing for myself. Most of my clothes are no longer comfortable. Baby is doing well and so am I.
