I am Not as Strong as I appear. I enjoy weakness from time to time. We are a homeschooling, special needs family of 6. My 4th son has a Congenital Heart defect, and my oldest has ADHD. I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

Take It On Tuesday!

At the moment, my house is a disaster. Doing the dishes consists of stacking them up so they take up the least amount of space. Picking up the toys consists of pushing them all in a pile at one end of the room. The bathroom hasn’t been cleaned in days and I am afraid of what the boy’s bathroom looks and smells like.

I am still taking down the Christmas tree…and I will not be having a Valentines Day tree or an Easter tree this year, I promised my husband. I promised him that as soon as he gets the boxes down out of the attic that I will put the decorations away. The bottom half of the tree is bare, that is where all the kid ornaments hang. All the ornaments have moved from the tree to the dining room table…just do that I can say that I started taking down the tree ;)

My house is a disaster, and while it is driving me crazy, I am working on being OK with it. Strep is a sneaky, rotten little thing that is still bouncing around our house and today, I officially gave up trying to keep up with anything. Owain spent the afternoon with a 102 fever and I have been giving him breathing treatments all day. Just before bedtime I got his fever down to just under 100 degrees. I am hoping that if I can keep the fever down that will calm his asthma down. He has only been in bet for an hour and I have been up listening to his breathing and checking out how blue he is twice already.  I am giving him through the night to see how things go, if I can continue to manage to keep his fever down and keep his asthma from getting worse, then I think that this afternoon and evening will be the worst of it. Just praying we make it through the night without getting worse.

All of my projects are on hold for the week, except for getting ready for our Mended Little Hearts CHD Event and taking care of my sick kids. When they do get better and stop feeling so yucky, I will take on the major cleaning that my house needs. Unless of course a maid shows up at my door.

So what projects are you taking on this week?

    Awwwww :(
    I hate times like that! Feel better soon all of you and may you have the energy to get your house chores done. My 2 year old came to me today and said “can I help you mommy” I told him “Yes, hire mommy a maid” :) He had no idea what I had just said, but it was the first thing that came to my mind!

      lol, that is funny Karrie! I was just telling my husband how awesome it would be to get a maid service as a present…even if it was just for 4 hours.

      Thanks Rebecca! He is doing much better tonight. Still some trouble with his asthma, but his fever is down.

    I dislike projects. Intensely. I’m more of a spur of the moment kinda gal.

    So – yesterday I decided to clean my hardwoods! Does that count? :)

      lol, Donnetta, that absolutely counts!
