The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The Good: Adam slept for a 4 hour stretch two nights ago and I hoped it wasn’t a fluke. Last night he slept for 3.5 hours, nursed and then slept for another 4. Woo!

The Bad: Two days ago, our toilet became seriously clogged with “flushable” diaper liners that I had been using so that we didn’t get some thick diaper cream on the cloth diapers. I couldn’t stomach the thought of paying a plumber, so I tried (unsuccessfully) to unclog the toilet with the help of a new plunger and two toilet snakes, over the next 24 hours. No dice. I ended up calling the plumber and $307 later, the toilet is flushing free.

The Ugly: Our April budget. We have taken several hits to this month before the plumber. It will be impossible to break even this month, even if we really stretch. If anyone has great ideas for trimming even the most modest budget, let me know!
