what a week!

It's been a great week for many reasons - a successful diaper run, a stress-free visit from my mom, an inauguration that went smoothly followed by some kept promises, even more sales on the website, and a family birthday - Liefe turned 6.

Even though it's often said, it is hard to remember where the time goes. I can't believe I've been Liefe's mom for 6 years! I try to imagine where we'd be if we hadn't become parents. I wonder if we'd be in Maine. I wonder if we'd even think about diapers, let alone running a diaper service. While I was content with my life before Liefe, now that I have know the joys and frustrations of parenting her and Haydee, I'd never want to go back to life before children. Well, not for very long at least! They've taught me to live my life with intention, to stand for what I believe is right and what will benefit us all. Today I am thankful for a growing business, a healing nation, and a supportive family.


credit card snafu

I am delighted that the Buzzie Bee website store is getting orders! It's wonderful - the people at the post office are congratulating me as they are seeing me much more often. One minor issue is that the cart software isn't recognizing credit cards. But Paypal, check, money order, local delivery and instore pick up all work. So, if you're in need of a baby gift or want to help out new parents by providing them with a month of diaper service, check out the site. Thanks!


making miracles update

The check is literally in the mail. Finally finished up the December bookkeeping and was delighted to write a check to Bangor Savings Bank for $107 for the Making Miracles fundraiser for Mid-Coast United Charities. Sales in December were definitely up - with our first round of website sales coming in! Thank you to everyone who helped out. Hopefully this time next year we'll be writing a check for five times that amount. It's certainly possible! Go cloth!
