First, I'd like to thank you for not pointing out that I had spelled the word truths incorrectly!
Now as for the answer...
Cali was right! I was never in a well for nine hours!
As for the baby chick... I really did kill a baby chick on purpose by snapping it's neck with my bare hands. This SHOCKED my husband! I had hatched 17 out of 24 eggs (an awesome turn out) in an incubator for a science project. I LOVED my chickens and wanted to keep them all. I named them and fed them. They would even follow me around our yard.
The sad thing was that one day I left the chicks out side for just a few minutes in a make shift cage. My dog Boots knocked over the cage and crushed a couple. There was on named Goliath (as in David and Goliath) that didn't die right away. I sat holding this dying chick for over an hour. I called my Mom at work and begged her to come home and "take care of it". She obviously couldn't leave for a chicken. I cried and cried.
Finally I couldn't take it's pathetic little peeps any more. So I, well you know...TALK ABOUT TRAUMATIZING!
YES, I did hitch hike across Illinois. I was stupid. I was wrong. AND if any of you EVER tell any of my children I will shoot you and bury your bodies where they will never be found! Remember, I live in the desert!
- I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!
