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!

I typed a long ... boring ... post ... and erased it...
I'm going to see the hand surgeon tomorrow. (insert whining here) I have to have surgery. (insert "fear of going under the knife" comments here) It's going to cost money. (insert more whining) I have to drive there by myself. (insert looong story of roll over accident and chronic panic attacks here)
I'm sad (insert all the reasons a vacation is not an option this summer... and more whining) I'm tired (throw in some comments about insomnia and how much it sucks!) I'm lonely (This is where I talk about the ward members I have, and how I just found out yesterday that I "intimidate" most of the women because I can "handle" so many children)
The rest was really to personal to post on a public site and probably wouldn't interest any of you any way.
The end.

Dude..I'm totally intrigued now. All of the "fill in the blank" comments make me laugh, but I'd love to hear more!

If you were in my ward I wouldn't be intimidated I would think "she won't notice a few more kids I'm going to be friends with her so our kids can play and we can chat!"
