About Me

My photo
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!

He gets a lot!

I asked permission from my husband to post this blog and he just smiled and said, "Sure you can post that." I think he just likes it because it makes him look good. ;P

I was just thinking to my self...I'm not sure if you any one knows this but I have suffered from chronic Postpartum Depression for the past 10 years. (smile) The truth is I've never really had PPD to horribly before. But this time around I'm not a happy camper! My Romeo has been in the dog house a LOT lately...through no fault of his own!

So today...He gets calls at work when I'm frustrated. He gets IMs when I can't stop crying. He gets to stop at Sam's because I forgot to put some important items on the list for the last trip. He gets to pick up pizza because my mind is so frazzled that I forget to plan for dinner. He gets to come home to a messy house. He gets to hear all about my horrid day. He gets to learn that I've gone over my budget. He gets to hold the baby while I eat dinner. He gets to hug me and reassure me of what a "great mom and wife" I am.

What do I get?...
Two dozen long stem red Roses!

I'm so glad someone raised that boy right. (Props to his mom.)

No kidding. I'll be honest, If he had come home fuming last night I would have completely understood. But instead, he hit a home run!

Way to go John! Don't you just love it when your hubby is so thoughtful! Well obviously you do! :)
