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!

Sleep...brain fog...and being happily insane!

So a friend of mine and I were talking on the phone last night. We were talking about the fact that as mothers we don't get enough sleep so it's no wonder we're going insane! In our conversation she told about a study that had been done on human beings in which they were not allowed sleep. Some of the people LITERALLY went insane. My friend had come to the conclusion that it was her lack of sleep that was causing her issues!
I can't wait until I am at the lords feet because I sure have a lot of questions for him. For instance: Why would he give children so much energy? Why doesn't he save the excess of energy for us Moms that NEED it?

I have decided that I am suffering from a serious case of BRAIN FOG. (this IS an actual term) Hence my inability to keep it together (smile) Honestly, I am perfectly happy. (mostly) I feel like my last post might have miss led some people. I LOVE my life, my children, AND my husband! I just don't do well on no sleep! :) Just ask my husband about my 2 1/2 hr naps? A cousin of mine suggested lots of b12...It's worth a try.

I do get a little bummed when I start to examine my faults. I always backslide a bit before I figure things out and improve myself. I know I'll be fin and happy in the end. Each time I go through one of these "phases" I come out a little further up the mountain. I guess it's kinda like the song..."You take three steps forward and one step back, and you come a little closer. Take three steps forward and one step back and you've started on your way...Now look around see how far you've come. It's hard to remember where you've begun..." duh duh dum... I forget the rest but you get the idea.

Well any I just wanted every one to know that I am okay. I Don't need a suicide watch or any thing. :) All is well in the Land of Leschorn! The queen just feels a little off her rocker. She will be found competent enough to rule eventually!
