Annoyed today.

I feel really, really stressed out and upset lately. I'm annoyed with myself, because I ran out of the proper detergent for my cloth diapers (mail ordered because it's cheaper) my boys have had to endure disposables (and some rashes) for 2 days. I feel like I failed.

I also have a lot to do with my Mothers of Multiples group, and I have a sad feeling people will bail on me that were supposed to help.

Our landlords dropped off our new lease which I am quite annoyed with, and because of my failure to save money over the past several months we are unable to leave, instead having to sign on for another year. 

On a brighter note, my husband is pretty much a shoo in for a new promotion, which will more than DOUBLE his pay. So, we can pay our debt down to nothing in this next year we are stuck here, and save money to put down on a house. I am tired of pouring $1K every month down the drain on renting a place simply because it's convenient to my husband's work.

I'm stressed, I'm tired, I'm a  mom  tired TWIN mom. Hopefully things will look up some more SOON, I'm not sure I can handle financial, teething, and general stress much longer.

I am bad at this!

I almost never update, so I'm thinking I'm not really a super blogger. I've been keeping busy this summer taking care of my toddler twins who turned 1 in July. I can't even believe how big they have gotten!

We're still cloth diapering, which was one of the best decisions we ever made. I've gotten really into it, and now love the cuter diapers!  We now have MORE than enough diapers, and are doing it full time. Yay!

I've picked up my crocheting again, and I am considering making some cute items. Slippers, bags, baby items, etc. I love crocheting and knitting. I also picked up sewing, and constructed my first pocket diaper! It works SO well, and I am going to make a 2nd diaper.

I have also embarked on a weight-loss journey with my best friend... I would like to be seen in a bikini next summer! Let's hope we don't let each other fail.
