Wet Cheeks

I cried like 5 times last night. First, I cried after watching The Office because Jim chose to mess up his interview out of love for Pam. Ahhh! :) Then I cried because I really wanted Rocky Road icecream and we didn't have any and Huz didn't want to go get any. (Yes, he finally went and got me some. What a manipulative brat I am!) Then I cried because Burke walked out on Yang, George failed and is on the rocks with both Cally and Izzie, Alex lost Eva, and Richard's the father of the child his wife just lost. Oh! The drama! Also? I'm boycotting American Idol next year. The show is clearly not about who the most talented vocalist is, but about who the 14 year old girls of American think is cute. I like Blake, but there's no way you can honestly tell me he's more talented than Melinda. You just can't. I was pissed.

In other news, do you know that Huz and I are going to try cloth diapering? No, we're not weird tree huggers, but we do respect the environment and realize (through research) how much of a toll disposable diapers put on the earth. Do you know that disposables take around 500 years to biodegrade? Do you know that an average child uses 7,000 diapers before being potty trained? Do you know that it saves nearly $1,500 to use cloth diapers over 2 years instead of using disposable? I've enjoyed reading about this issue and about all of the new kinds of cloth diapers on the market (no, it's not just a flat piece of cloth that you pin on your baby anymore). There's Fuzzi Bunz, Bum Genius, Happy Heiny's, gDiapers, and more. Check them out. I think it's worth it to help with the environment and to be economically wise. (You can buy them used too, which also saves a buck!)
