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.

It is Hard to Believe…

I just realized that today is Friday. That means that we are only 1 week a way from Owain’s surgery. Today though, we had a great time at the park, such a great time that I didn’t even think about what day it was once. I took hundreds of photos, way too many to...

I Love Me a Sprinkler Kind Of Day

There was so much to do today. Dishes, laundry, the floors, the bathrooms, pretty much the whole house needed to get cleaned before we go on vacation on Thursday. I started my day with coffee and every intention of avoiding all things involving cleaning. Instead I spent the day with the 2 younger kids...
