Cold

January 30th, 2013

EFFING JANUARY, AM I RIGHT? I don’t know about you guys, but for the first few weeks after the holidays, I am relieved they’re over and I’m relaxed! Ho de ho, the winter is upon us, but there are no more holidays and we can just relax into our comfy routine!

And then, God, it’s just dark and dreary and cold and everyone is sick, so you don’t see friends as much as you usually do, and did I mention it’s DARK and it’s never SUNNY and you get the stomach virus, and then your friends get the stomach virus and then everyone has the FLU and it’s just depressing. I have been in a low-grade foul mood going on a week now, with absolutely no reasoning behind it, and then I remember: January. That’s really all I need to know.

January, man. It is a dark time. And February is more of the same. But March! Hey, uh, that’s coming soonish, and things start to warm up a bit and bonus! It stays light past 5 p.m. then.

Something to look forward to! Mud season!

Barrel of glee, I am.

Let us move on to some quick takes, because at this point, I am just putting things down on paper to get them out, just to, I don’t know, KEEP SWIMMING in this bleak, bleak era of deep winter. (Irony: I LIKE winter. But the lack of snow and/or sunshine is SAPPING MY WILL TO LIIIIIVE.)

– I’ve been cloth diapering and this is not new if you follow me on Twitter, because I went through a phase where I talked about it all the time, and I became one of Them, and here’s the thing: Cloth diapering is fun. No, I don’t know why. Yes, it’s creepy. Yes, the acronyms are awful and stupid and make it seem like some kind of SCIENCE, when really, it isn’t, it’s quite simple. I feel silly, in fact, that I didn’t do it with Sam, but then again, YOU try figuring out how to squeeze extra laundry into a time when your child screams 24/7 and eating anything less convenient than a Pop Tart is just too much to ask. Occasionally, I think back on the state of our house during Sam’s infancy, and honestly, it was as close to true squalor as I have ever lived. I don’t think I cleaned ANYTHING for a solid six months, and while Adam is a neat picker-upper, he’s not really going to dig in there with a toilet brush or anything.

Jesus, talk about a dark time.

I digress! So I’m cloth diapering, and it started like this: Allie blew out every diaper under the sun except for Seventh Generation, which for some reason is the ONLY disposable diaper I could readily find with elastic on the back. This is stupid, right? Stupid. Anyway, those diapers are not only expensive, but horribly crinkly and uncomfortable, and on a whim, I bought some gDiapers with the cloth inserts. I liked them, actually, and suddenly, I was no longer cutting onesies off of my kid on a regular basis (seriously, with the cutting). But oh ho HO, I could not get them clean with Charlie’s Soap and my inserts smelled like poop and I just GAVE UP and ordered a bunch of prefold diapers from Green Mountain Diapers and threw them into Flip covers, voila.

THEN, Kelly told me that basically, it turned out the reason my diapers still stunk is that THEY WERE NOT CLEAN because Charlie’s was not cleaning them, and HEAVENS, we bought some powdered Tide and God shone on us, and I could use microfiber again, so I got some bumGenius 4.0 pocket diapers and a couple of Elementals and now, that is what we use. Flips + prefolds, BG pocket diapers and for nighttime, bumGenius Elementals, which are awesome. I only have five Elementals, honestly, and that’s plenty.

So! Pocket diapers, prefolds + covers and an organic all-in-one, all from bumGenius, save for the prefolds. That’s it. I have two dozen prefolds, eight Flip covers, and maybe 12 pocket dipes? Anyway, I do laundry every three days, I spent less than $400 on the whole shebang thanks to seconds and used diapers and done. It’s way easier than I thought it would be, even with Alex eating solids. And cheap! Less than $400!

We won’t talk about the water bill from the month I tried to make my gDiapers stink less using Charlie’s. Yes, that was . . . expensive. But atypical! ATYPICAL!

Now you know. You should do it! It’s easy! And did I mention cheap?

– Speaking of cheap, oh holy hannah, y’all, after my budget post I told myself I could only go to Target if I ABSOLUTELY needed something, and I haven’t been since and . . . my bank account is noticeably, ah, larger. I even went so far as to price out staples like deodorant online and thus, have a six-pack of Dove winging its way to my house as we speak so that I do not even need to get out for THAT. And THEN I realized that while I am saving boatloads of money by exercising supreme restraint in avoiding my beloved red-signed paramour, I am also one one-click away from becoming an agoraphobic hermit who may raise the next Unibomber if we don’t get out. It never dawned on me how much I relied on SHOPPING to get us out of the house, particularly when we’re seeing friends less due to illness.

I see, ah, lots of trips to the public library in our future. Also, begging my friends to come over even if people are puking, because JUST GIVE THEM A BUCKET, WE CANNOT GO TO TARGET, WHO CARES ABOUT NOROVIRUS WE NEED SOCIAL INTERACTION.

Well, maybe not norovirus. But strep, flu? I’ll risk it. Just get me out, man, GET ME OUT. Otherwise I’m about to drive over to the red mecca and throw myself into the dollar bins.

(We have friends coming over tomorrow. Please don’t worry about us. Saved for another day.) (If they cancel, I will weep.)

– Target avoidance aside, I suddenly realized another reason why we haven’t been getting out as much, and that is the two-nap trap. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a twice-daily napping infant, and it is, ah, limiting, is it not? You get up, two hours later, BOOM! A nap. Three hours after that, BOOM! Another nap, but the thing is, you don’t want to do much in those three hours because WHO WANTS TO RISK THE NAP? No one. So you BOLT as soon as the kid wakes up from nap one, because a car nap could make the rest of the day AWFUL, or you wait until after the second nap, at which point, who feels like going anywhere, really. NOT I SAID THE FLY.

– I’m on a crapper of a reading streak, lemme tell you. Megan McCaffety’s “Bumped”? Unreadable. Abandoned. I’m currently reading Kate Morton’s The House at Riverton, and given that her Forgotten Garden is an all-time favorite, I had high hopes. It is . . . just okay. Even my smut choices have been lacking (Naked/All In/Blackstone Affair is . . . just okay for me.) The last book that really sucked me in was Gone Girl. What say you? Do YOU have any good books? Trashy and smutty choices are welcomed.

I blame you, January. I BLAME YOU.

Happy Thursday.

    Ooh, am I first?! I, too, cloth diapered, and man, did people think I was strange. Not my mother, but everyone else. I am cheap, people. I am changing him all the time anyway. And with my first, I was home most of the time, too, so I didn’t have to contend with daycare. It kept me on top of the laundry, I didn’t notice any appreciable increase in water/power usage, and I loved the way the diapers looked on the clothesline. Yes, I bought a clothesline just so I could hang out the diapers. Yes, I am a dork.
    Book recommendations: Alphabetter Juice by Roy Blount Jr. (That’s how he signs his name, no comma.); the Enola Holmes mysteries by Nancy Springer (look in juvenile fiction); anything by Shelley Pearsall (also juvenile fiction); um, old knitting pattern books for when you can’t sleep. I read a lot; you’d think I have more ideas.
    I totally agree about the soul-suckingness of deep winter. I try to keep my germs to myself, but it means I don’t get out much. I’m pretty sure the guy at the Y has forgotten what I look like. Also, no one naps in my house, which means that by the time the older child gets home from school, the younger child has sapped my will to live, or at least exercise. Or clean. Or prepare meals.
    Now that I have written this dissertation, I will sign off.

  • 2. H  |  January 30th, 2013 at 11:04 pm

    I’m sorry about January. I feel it too. Actually, I struggle through January, February and March. Gloomy, dark and cold. Blah.

    However, I enjoy your posts immensely. They make me smile! Thank you! (NOT I SAID THE FLY – ha!)

  • 3. Elsha  |  January 30th, 2013 at 11:13 pm

    I was just realizing the other day that one of the reasons I never go anywhere is Daniel’s 2 nap schedule! And man, does that kid sleep a lot. I need to invite more people over.

    Have you read The Distant Hours by Kate Morton? I liked that one a lot. Also really enjoyed In the Garden of Beasts, but it’s less suck-you-in and more generally fascinating/disturbing.

  • 4. Caro  |  January 30th, 2013 at 11:24 pm

    Book recommendations are my jam! Anything by Jennifer Haigh, especially Baker Towers, Faith, and The Condition. For a time I was a Jodi Picoult devotee, but those days are over.

    Not entirely sure what you would like/have already read, but Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguru is insane in the best way. It’s hard to get into at first and there’s a big secret that he only hints at, which is very frustrating as the reader. But oh the reveal.

    The Road by Cormac McCarthy is heartbreaking, scary, and beautiful.

    Oh, and one more: Those Who Save Us by Jenna Blum was so so good.

    Hope these are helpful! Would love to hear about your favorite recent or past reads in a post!

  • 5. Megan  |  January 30th, 2013 at 11:58 pm

    Code Name Verity. I just finished and it was so good. I’ve been recommending it all over the Internet. I just can’t help it.

  • 6. ZestyJenny  |  January 31st, 2013 at 12:29 am

    Do I recall you hated The Passage? I’m enjoying The Twelve, though perhaps, um, not. IT’S TERRIFYING.

    Also love the cloth, we fuzzi bunz. And if you want to talk cheap, how about using the same $400 investment on a second kid. BOOM.

    I always kind if thought you would be a good cloth diaperer, because I know you share my love of laundry. :)

  • 7. Bekki  |  January 31st, 2013 at 1:08 am

    We were forced into cloth due to skin issues when my twins were just about 1, and I was pretty pissed I didn’t go for it earlier! Once we got into a routine, it was actually really easy. We were a FuzziBunz family, but how I loved the Flip cotton inserts.

    I’m in the middle of A Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling. I like it. It’s not grabbing me, but I find it interesting. I really liked Looking For Alaska by John Green because it was about all the people I wished I had been in high school ;) Hints of trash but mostly teen angst.

    My book club has chosen the Great Gatsby in preparation for the movie, and I’m trying really hard to work up the energy to attempt it. High school flashbacks of tough English teachers and AP prep!

  • 8. Karen  |  January 31st, 2013 at 7:21 am

    The thing I can’t stand about January is, wherever you look, BAM, it’s still January. The month. never. ends. (Today? STILL JANUARY!)

    I can live with February because it always goes by faster. Plus, every year for the last five years (I have an eight-year-old) I’ve gone for a solo long weekend at the end of February. It started as an escape from my emetophobia, which (as I know you know) makes the winters nearly unbearable sometimes. Now it’s just the thing I start looking forward to when the days start getting darker in November.

    So, in a small way, today is the last day of winter for me. Huzzah!

    Right now I’m reading The Stone Diaries and loving it.

  • 9. Kristen  |  January 31st, 2013 at 7:25 am

    “The Orphan Master’s Son” was the best book I read last year. It’s not trashy (it’s about North Korea), but it was SO COMPELLING. I spent MANY nights up way too late reading it.

  • 10. Becky  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:28 am

    Oh, I hated Bumped! HATED! I abandoned it, too. What a load of crap. Thank you for saying so.

  • 11. Rachel  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:37 am

    Umm…just chiming in to say yes on the two nap thing. I try to get Leah down as early as possible, then use the morning nap to get me and Cooper dressed, showered, snacked, packed, etc. Then bolt when she wakes, home for lunch and back down around 1ish. I remember this from the other two…hoping to get her to one nap as close to 12 months as humanly possible…

    Also, janaury. I told my husband i was not finding any job in life these days (he said it was the saddest thing he had heard, i said it was just the truth). Everything is just a f’ing battle and drag these days.

  • 12. Rachel  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:38 am

    joy, not job. I have a job, and honestly the days i go to it are the easiest in my week…

  • 13. Jennifer  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:42 am

    Yay for cloth diapers! I switched after I ran out one day in December and saw how cute her bum looked wrapped in pretty, soft jersey. We use mostly Green Mountain prefolds, but I grabbed an elemental yesterday in the seconds sale. I really hope I hate it because I cannot want/buy more diapers.
    I will confess that I am delaying solids because I don’t want to mess with washing real people poop. Did you get a sprayer?

  • 14. aly  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:49 am

    i loved loved the new jen lancaster book (here i go again) and am currently reading the dark tower series by stephen king. really very much enjoying them– they start off slow, but have sucked me in. also, not to offend anyone, but i ABHOR cormac mccarthy, esp the road. HATED IT. it’s terrible. he writes awful female characters and i just… no. no thank you. i’ve found that people that liked the stand hate the road. (similiar plot lines but I HATE YOU CORMAC MCCARTHY).

  • 15. April  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:51 am

    I’m pregnant with my first and am planning on Flips plus prefolds, and Bum Genius at night too! I got the BGs on Freecycle. Score!

    Have you read any Kate Atkinson? She is really wonderful. Her most recent books–five or so?–are sort of mysteries but not “mystery novels” if that makes sense. Her earlier ones are different but also very good

  • 16. Anne  |  January 31st, 2013 at 9:05 am

    Wait, so you can use powdered regular Tide with Microfiber? I thought that was just with cotton. I could be thinking of something else. Huh.

  • 17. jonniker  |  January 31st, 2013 at 9:17 am

    Jenny: I read the Twelve. Anxious to hear what you think. I thought it was just okay. I liked, but did not love it. I LOVED The Passage.

    Anne: YES! Tide. Tide on all diapers. Tide Tide Tide. Powdered. I’ve been using it for months now, and have not had a single issue, nor have I had to strip. I stripped WEEKLY while using Charlie’s.

    TIDE 4 EVA.

    Even Happy Heinys recommends it: http://www.happyheinys.com/care-and-sizing/cloth-diaper-detergents

  • 18. Suki  |  January 31st, 2013 at 9:52 am

    Yeah, January can be a really soul-sucker, as can the tyranny of two naps. I just finished The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and really liked it, but it came out a while ago, so you may have already read it.

    I thought this was a really interesting post about shopping as entertainment, and it struck a chord for me as I definitely passed my weekends for years and years by, “running errands”, aka shopping.

    http://theslapdashsewist.blogspot.com/2012/07/overdressed-shockingly-high-cost-of.html

    I feel like I’ve gotten some better about it (having a kid that acts like a pill every time we got to Target helps), but Costco is so my achilles heal. “What should we do today? Oh, let’s go to Costco”.

  • 19. miss_matthews  |  January 31st, 2013 at 10:08 am

    I’m a voracious reader like you. The best books I read recently that I would recommend:
    A Grown Up Kind of Pretty
    The Dovekeepers
    I Am the Messenger
    The Outlander Series
    The Fault in Our Stars
    Ready Player One

  • 20. Auntie G  |  January 31st, 2013 at 10:16 am

    YESSSSSSSSSS on the two naps. My 2nd was the worst sleeper and napper in the history of the world (NO, REALLY), so now that he DOES nap 2x a day, as long as he is in his crib, I am loathe to keep him from napping…but it blows our chances of getting out of the house. I will sacrifice the morning nap only, if I absolutely have to go somewhere and my husband and I can’t divide and conquer.

    I am frequently way behind the rest of the world on “hot” books, but I needed a break from dysfunctional family fiction when my January blues set in, and Donna Leon’s Brunetti mysteries were recommended. I am REALLY enjoying them, dated though the first several are. She’s written like 20 of them, so that’s also a treat – finding a new author who is ALSO prolific. Easy but still interesting reads. I’m not a mystery reader who cares much about whether I could, in theory, have figured out the mystery myself, if that matters.

    Have you read Carol O’Connell’s Mallory mysteries? I loved those, but you need to read them in order.

    At the end of my pregnancy with Adorable but Bad Sleeper, I read the Clan of the Cave Bear series. Interesting, though HELLA REDUNDANT, and I am possibly still a bit scarred from all the caveman porn.

    I really really enjoy John Sandford’s Kidd books. He is better know for his Lucas Davenport/Prey series, but the Kidd computer-y, thief-y, artsy stuff is much more my taste.

  • 21. Hillary  |  January 31st, 2013 at 10:38 am

    January is the worst.

    I’m a cloth diaperer, and I love it. I use a combo of pockets and gDiapers they work great for me. Well, for my son, really.

    I totally use shopping to get out of the house. I can’t tell you how many excuses I’ve made to go to Target and Barnes & Noble over the last year. But it’s fun for me and my son and I try not to buy random things we don’t need. I mean, you always need books, right?

    Books I’ve read recently that I really enjoyed:
    Ready Player One, which I see listed above
    The Rook by Daniel O’Malley
    Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo
    and slightly smuttily, The Duchess War by Courtney Milan

  • 22. Nimble  |  January 31st, 2013 at 11:12 am

    Just finished the first of a trilogy: The Spirit Thief by Rachel Aaron. It’s fantasy, wizards and swords. Quite a fresh new take, I like the world where everything physical has a spirit that can be spoken to. It has humor which is a plus. I’d call it YA, I’ve passed it on to my 11 y.o.

    P.S. Dreamed last night that I dropped in at your house unannounced in stalker blog reader stylee. It was most extremely embarrassing and I lay awake for a long time before I convinced myself it hadn’t happened.

    @Rachel above, I hope you get enough sleep and some sunshine soon. You deserve some joy in life, not just job.

  • 23. LizScott  |  January 31st, 2013 at 11:30 am

    OBVIOUSLY I HAVE A BOOK REC FOR YOU

    But in addtion to THAT one, I also have waiting for me, already checked out from the library, mocking me as I do not open them:

    - Broken Harbor (Faithful Place was just a’ight for me, dawg)
    - This is How You Lose Her
    - Sharp Objects (please like Gone Girl please be like Gone Girl)
    The House Tynnnnnn something that you rec’d

  • 24. Artemisia  |  January 31st, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    January. Hate. But, A. drags me out to go ICE FISHING and oddly, that helps.

    (WHA??)

    I need some good smut book recommendations, please.

    Lately, I have been reading terribly rage-inducing, depressing books. I.e.:

    Why America Failed: The Roots of Imperial Decline by Morris Berman (very good book)

    Cheap: The High Cost of Discount Culture by Ellen Ruppel Shell (good, was away of most but it goes into great detail and follows the thought throw. DEPRESSSING AS FUCK.)

    Twilight of the Elites: America after Meritocracy by Christopher Hayes (Good. Interesting in light of the other books.)

    Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle by Chris Hedges. (I had high hopes – the title alone makes my heart skip a beat. However, while it is pretty good, it is not written as well as I would have liked. It skims across the surface of important arguments without supplying sources, the chapter on porn is problematic, and the whole book is disjointed and is badly in need of a good editor. But I still like it.)

    I need to read something light-hearted!

  • 25. Susie  |  January 31st, 2013 at 12:21 pm

    I am curious to see if I end up with a bizarre three nap situation once new baby is here. You know, baby naps, then eliza naps, then baby naps. Leaving me with no down time and an inability to leave the house. I’m obviously a pretty optimistic person over here, considering I am possibly freaking out about this now, when the baby is due in June.

    As for books, I’ve been reading The Game of Thrones for the entire month oh my hell will it ever end, and I like it ok. I’m in a knights and swords phase, but this offering was so clearly written by a dude. There is a lot of guts and some zombie knights, but very little love story. And apparently I’m a person who needs love stories, these days? I don’t know.

  • 26. Cora  |  January 31st, 2013 at 12:39 pm

    Ooh! I’m currently reading The Forgotten Garden and really loving it. So I’m going to recommend something that’s kind of embarrassing, but I really enjoyed the Infernal Devices series by Cassandra Clare. They are way better than The Mortal Instruments series and I have NO IDEA WHY. But I seriously loved the 2 Infernal Devices books (Clockwork Angel and Clockwork Prince.) I devoured both of them and have since spent an embarrassing amount of time on Tumblr looking for spoilers for Clockwork Princess (out March 19th!) Anyway, historical fiction isn’t really my thing but these were good mostly because it’s not so focused on history but dumb supernatural stuff and dumb relationship stuff, which I love.

  • 27. melaniek  |  January 31st, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    February gets me EVERY year, in January I am busy enjoying the relaxed pace (compared to the holidays) but by February we are ready to crawl outta our skin. On Monday it was 70 degrees here in Kansas City, and my son immediately after walking home from school got out the basketball and after we shot baskets for awhile we switched to front yard wiffle ball and then he got out the soccer ball and finally ended up on the play set in the backyard (all this in the 2 hrs before dark)… we knew how fleeting the temperature would be so we played all we could. Now its supposed to be 6 degrees overnight and theres an inch of snow on the ground but at least we got to play a bit!

  • 28. Natalie  |  January 31st, 2013 at 3:37 pm

    Amen sister. I am also using shopping as a way to get out of the house. Our Target bill is scary. I could walk to Target it is so close! I need to find some friends who are home during the day. Micah is flying to BIllerika next month. He wanted us to go with him. But, umm I don’t think I want to be stuck inside a hotel room for 4 days. You’ve solidified my decision!

  • 29. HereWeGoAJen  |  January 31st, 2013 at 3:45 pm

    DIAPER PUSHER. Ha. I love that you are all diapery now. It’s the best.

    I hate the nap schedule. I have no idea what we will do when Ryan gets on a nap schedule instead of just randomly conking out for half an hour in the sling.

  • 30. Alison  |  January 31st, 2013 at 4:25 pm

    That nap schedule is my life – especially fear of screwing up the afternoon nap. No sleeping in the car!!

    I have never had an issue with January but I live in southern Texas – but I’m about to move to Newfoundland (!!) so this may change.

    Last great non-trashy read was Michael Crummey’s, Galore. I loved it so much, though I’m a little hesitant to recommend it because its set in Newfoundland (which I’m a little obsessed with currently) and it is a multi-generational family saga told in a somewhat rambling, non-chronological style. I thought it was fantastic, but I can see where some might not at all. Also loved Daughter of Smoke and Bone, but it is firmly in the YA fantasy fiction category.

  • 31. Veronica  |  January 31st, 2013 at 4:47 pm

    Uh, books. I read Ilona Andrews “Kate Daniels” series and loved it, but if you’re not into urban fantasy, I wouldn’t recommend it. I love fantasy, so it’s been my pick of the month.

    I also just finished Mira Grant’s “Feed” and then the two that followed it and ZOMBIE CONSPIRACIES. I loved it.

  • 32. Margot  |  January 31st, 2013 at 5:18 pm

    I just downloaded “Drinking with Men” by Rosie Schaarp and it is awesome so far. Great writing, hilarious, relatable stories, and some great perspective on life. Also loved Sheila Heti’s “How Should a Person Be” and Gary Shteyngart’s “Super Sad True Love Story” is next on the list. I don’t expect to live up to its title, am hoping for a more ironic/satire than angst.

  • 33. jive turkey  |  January 31st, 2013 at 8:29 pm

    I just have to tell you that my mother says NOT I SAID THE FLY all the damn time (although I haven’t heard her do it in a while), and reading it here made me smile.

  • 34. Sarah  |  February 1st, 2013 at 2:10 pm

    I’m glad someone else loathes January too. We have had sick people here all month long, and between that and my six month old who has decided it’s awesome to eat three times a night, I am like the walking dead. Also getting way fatter thanks to no outtings and comfort food. This is the SUCK. I too am looking forward to mud season. It’s pretty bad when even that sounds exciting.

  • 35. Lori  |  February 2nd, 2013 at 9:40 am

    January was terrible to us this year. The 9-month-old had a stomach bug that lasted over a week (scary!). My husband was out of town for two weeks for work(during the stomach bug fiasco, of course). The older two kids may kill each other before the month is out b/c they are going stir crazy. I put myself on a diet at the beginning of the month to lose the last 10 pregnancy pounds, so I’m a real treat to be around, too. Crossing my fingers February treats us better. I have Barbara Kingsolver’s new book, Flight Behavior, sitting here waiting to read, but haven’t touched it yet. Did recently finish two non-fictions, Bad Mother by Ayelet Waldman, and Bringing up Bebe by Pamela Druckerman. Both were surprisingly entertaining, since I’m not usually a non-fiction reader.

  • 36. Sarah Park  |  February 3rd, 2013 at 3:30 am

    Cough, colds and flu are everywhere these days. The start of my January was also awful. Everyone of us including the children got sick. Thank God winter is almost over and spring is on the way.

  • 37. Sarah  |  February 3rd, 2013 at 7:10 pm

    I just finished reading Empire Falls which is not a recent bestseller but was great!
