Today, I hit the limit. I couldn’t stand to throw out one more diaper box. We’ve thrown out so many & each time I think to myself how wasteful it is. I mean, yeah it’s just a cardboard box & yeah, we recycle but still. There had to be SOMETHING I could do with them.

So as of today, Monday, February 9, I do not know what I’ll be doing for my hubby Saturday, February 14… I figured there has to be at least a handful of women who get in the same boat as me.
