Don’t unsubscribe!! Please, I didn’t mean to do it!
I don’t know what’s happened to me. All I can do is blame it on pregnancy.
It’s funny how I titled this post with the word “forced”. As if I was not the one to blame hehehe. Last week we went camping. I knew we’d be going camping for weeks, yet did I pack early? No. I waited until Monday morning.
This always results in something being short-changed (usually underwear) or completely forgotten (usually my husband’s socks, razor, belt or anything else he might need). This time I did pretty well.
Sure I forgot to bring enough snacks but we survived. I even brought the Flip disposable liners with 4 covers. The problem was I only brought one package. There are only 18 in a package. We were staying 4 nights. That’s 8 inserts gone right there. That leaves 10…for 4 1/2 days. Somehow I forgot to do the math.
Thankfully, we spent most of Wednesday and Thursday at the river so Sterling just wore a cover. But, as Thursday afternoon approached and I realized I only had 2 inserts left I knew I’d have to do something. The nearest store was podunk and I knew there’d be no “healthy disposable diapers” to choose from like my HEB offers.
*sigh* I stood there staring at Huggies, Luvs, Pampers and some really weird cheapies. I had no clue what to buy. I didn’t want them to smell, I had no clue what size to buy and why don’t they sell them in singles???
After choosing Huggies and paying a crazy $10.99 for a pack I felt the need to hide my face. But, who was going to care in a town where probably no one in 30 years has used a cloth diaper? I cared.
I know it’s not the end of the world. Still. I write a cloth diaper blog. Anyways, I put one on Sterling around dinner. He did NOT like it :( Then, for nighttime I put the remaining 2 Flip inserts on.
When he woke up the next morning I put on another Huggies. Before we came home I put on the one cloth diaper I had in the car (oh, how lovely it was to put on my favorite Bum Genius Organic AIO) and said goodbye to sposies.
I meant to take my left-overs to my church but forgot. I’ll do that next week.
I should have planned better. I should place cloth diapers in my car for emergencies like this…I certainly have plenty to do this!
On a different note, my next blog post in progress is in regards to ammonia burns. If you have found a slam-dunk solution to combating ammonia please let me know. I will compile solutions for others struggling with this frustrating problem.
Here’s a picture of us just before we left South Llano River State Park. Don’t I look tired?! I’m still tired.
