A look into what we ordinarily do...sometimes not that ordinary.

Friday, January 29, 2010


Thanks for the tag, Elisabeth. This came at the perfect lull in my creative blogging life.

Age: 26

Bed size: King. Brilliant Invention!!

Chore I hate: Grocery Shopping. Might stem from my childhood, I was sent to the grocery store almost everyday.

Dog's name: Scooter. Although he also goes by cooties and roach.

Essential to start my day: Snoozing my alarm atleast once.

Favorite color: Lime green, and some days yellow.

Gold or silver: Depends.

Height: 5'3

I am: Considering coming into work tomorrow for one hour so I don't have to stay until 6 today.

Job: Insurance Rep.

Kids: Yes. Lina Ester Burgess. Just her....for a while for sure!

Living arrangements: A modest home in Mesa.

Mom's name: Catalina

Nickname: Cec, Ceci.

Overnight hospital stay: 2 nights when we had Lina.

Pet peeve: People who zone me out and act like they are listening but aren't and then when they get caught try to pretend like they heard it all.

Quote from a movie: "When I shop the world gets better, the world is better; and then it's not anymore, and I have to do it again!" - Confessions of a Shopaholic

Right or left handed: Right.

Siblings: Ernest, Emma, Jonathan, Candi, Josue, Jacob. And Megan, Gabby, Brook, Julia, Greg.

Time I wake up: 7 am.

Unique thing about my car: not anything really unique about it.

Vegetable I hate: Can't stand raw onions. Just recently they redeemed themselves by being carmalized.

Ways I run late: Always late. Now atleast I can blame it on Lina.

X-rays I've had: Ultrasounds and teeth only.

Yummy food I make: Clint fooled me into thinking everything I made was yummy. After 3 years of marriage, the truth starts to come out. Although now he has left me totally confused.

Zoo favorite: I'm not a huge fan of the zoo. This probably stems from my childhood too. My dad would complain that we could see all of this by checking out a book at the library.

Anyone who needs to update their blogs but can't think of something to write.. TAG, you're it!

Diaper Sprayer. DIY or Namebrand?

I am debating whether I should get the diaper sprayer from BumGenius or venture out to Home Depot to get all the parts and have my sister's boyfriend who has plumber experience put it all together for me.

Any thoughts out there?

Here's a link that I found online that makes it sound so easy and claims it can be done for $25! That's half of the bumgenius sprayer.

DIY Diaper Sprayer Made Easy

Tuesday, January 5, 2010

So far so good...

It's been one week of cloth diapering and I am still pretty excited. With some help from fellow cloth diaper users and my mom I have even managed to not mind the poopy ones. I tried out T's sprayer on her toilet and am sold! I am totally impressed at how easy it's been and I feel silly for putting it off for so long.

One downfall I am less than thrilled about is having to put away a whole stash of clothes she hasn't even worn yet because of her extra junk in her trunk.

Believe it or not, Clint is on board and has even changed a couple of the poopy ones. When I asked him for a statement for our blog he declined and was suddenly unavailable for comment.

Thanks for the advice and comments.
