This weekend started out with lots of promise and the excitement of an extra day to sleep in, however Saturday one of my sons spiked a fever of 102 and we had a trip to the emergency room, due to his not eating and high fever. Poor little guy has an ear infection, and is still a little miserable from the weekend. He got better enough yesterday for us to head to a Memorial Day Parade, and to the beach for a little bit. Both of my boys had their first play time in the sand, and both tried to eat it. So, that part of the trip was a slight failure. The weekend was long, and mostly uneventful. There were a few scary poop blow outs, but I guess that's what I get for having all of my cloth diapers in the wash!
Today, after a couple of days of no mail, I open the mailbox and my face lights up like a 5 year old opening birthday presents. I love getting my orders online like the one today from Mom's Milk Boutique, where I got 2 rolls of diaper liners by Bummis. I was so excited they were here, I was about to run out of the ones I'd been using before, the Imse Vimse brand. I feel like a kid diving face first into an awesome birthday cake. That was the best thing in the mailbox. I also received my samples of the new Pantene from Vocalpoint. If you aren't a member of Vocalpoint, I highly recommend it. You get all sorts of free samples, coupons, and sometimes even free full sized products just for being a member. You can't beat a free membership either!
I am a junkie for free products, especially for useful ones. I like free samples of many products as well- lately I have gotten travel-sized bottles of shampoo, body wash, conditioner, and little bars of soap. I shouldn't have to buy anything for traveling any time soon!
After this weekend though, I am still a little tired. If only it had been a whole week.
