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.
- 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!
