My friend Monica turned me onto the Thirsties cloth diaper covers not to long ago. I had just used Bummis for plastic covers in the past and hated how they stunk and really didn’t seem all that comfortable. So I tried these and have really like them much better. I use the jelly-roll folding method and the Green Mountain prefolds (with a preemie prefold inside for double protection) and sometimes I also use some hand-made fitteds or Kissaluvs countours but my favorite method of all is the prefold method with a snappi.
I still like using knitted wool covers best but since it takes me so dang long to make just one I decided I needed to buy something for the in between as I only have 1 wool cover that fits my baby now (well 2 if you count my unfinished picky pants). So I went ahead and bought 2 more Thirsties for a good deal on Amazon:
1. Finally sorted and organized my daughter’s Kindergarten papers and art work and put it all away.
2. Took the kids and my sister to the zoo and actually had a great time-no meltdowns or whining and we even got to go on a boat ride!
3. Am 2 for 2 on my goal of exercising 3 days a week
What small things have other mom’s accomplished this week?
I LOVE quesadillas. They’re easy, they’re delicious, they can be nutritious.
When I’m making a lot I sometimes use my Santa Fe QM2R 900-Watt Quesadilla Maker.
But I always feel like I’m cheating when I do that so prefer the old fashioned stove method. So here’s a pictorial tutorial of how I make mine.
1. I like to warm my tortilla up a little first on the stove. Then I add the ingredients. I like my quesadillas ‘con carne’ so I put on turkey, ham, pepporoni, salami, sausage, whatever. Then I sprinkle some cheese over that (which isn’t in the picture oops!)
2. Fold it in half and cook it on both sides on the stove
3. Take it off the stove and cut it into triangles. I like using a pizza cutter for this.
4. Eat and enjoy! Yum! I’m going to make some right now!

By the way I LOVE comments. Whoever comments to this post first gets a little prize….I haven’t decided what yet but something probably edible and sweet and maybe colorful.
I missed posting for small successes yesterday but I have been tackling a few projects around the house. I cleaned out the garage a few weeks ago and have been going around the house and setting aside items to donate and I might actually remember to set the bags out at the curb this time when the AMV van comes cruising along. One big thing I’ve wanted to work on for a while is our garage entry way pantry/medicine/tool/misc cuphoards. I forgot to take a before picture but I’m sure you can use your imaginations to visualize cuphoards overflowing with bandaids and screwdrivers and all sorts of other random items. I could never find what I was looking for when I needed it so it was time to clean it up and organize! I threw a lot away and found a lot of missing items.
Here’s what it looks like now!
Now whenever I walk by here it makes me smile in a very nerdy way. I even have room to spare now!
I feel so accomplished with this I’m going to go ahead and stick on the badge even though it’s not Thursday.
I finally undid some of the longer leg and they fit much better now!
Aside from my own human error, I really liked this pattern. Next time I’ll choose a different waistband option. I realized too late that I’d chosen the hardest one by making an elastic waistband casing (which I have yet to completely finish). I love how the legs fit and the best part about the legs? No picking up stitches necessary!! Woo hoo!
They also fit very nicely in the bum area:
