Home Study Part III: The Best Line

Ditzypants sent us the first draft of the home study. Yes, she spelled S's name wrong throughout. And made a few, um, interesting errors. But the best line was this:

"J shares a home with S, whom she has known for 6 years and has shared a home with for 3 years. S has been very supportive of J’s plan to be a mother. S would like to be involved in the child’s life and to help out in whatever way J needs her to be involved. She is available to babysit."

Thank you, red state, for reducing my marriage to a babysitting relationship of convenience.

Best. Diet. Ever.

Accept work trip to Bogota and Guadalajara.
Try desperately not to drink the water.
Fail miserably.

Colombia + coffee = yum.
Even the hotel coffee was delicious.
However, I suspect this was the culprit.

Thank goodness I brought some coffee beans home with me.
You know, so I can enjoy it without the giardia and all.

Your Lists (please)

I saw this, posted by poppycat. And it was so helpful (thanks, poppycat!). And made me want more, more, more. So I thought I'd put out an open call (a shameless plea, really) for people to send their own lists. Maybe you have an old post. Or maybe this will inspire you to write a new one. If you put a link to your must-have-list (or must-avoid-list or best-advice-ever-list) in the comment section (or email me) I'll compile the links and post them for everyone to read.

*bonus ball*
I don't know much about cloth diapering (yet). But I'd really like to learn as much as I can so we can decide if that's what we want to do and how to do it and what to purchase, etc. So if you have a cloth diapering post that you want to share, I'd love to read that as well.
