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...

We Are Growing Apple Trees From The Seed

Apple Seeds Sprouting in the Apple 1

For YEARS E Nut has been asking to plant the apple seeds from his apples. I have always told him how hard it was to grow an apple tree from a seed. I never tried it, but I was mostly worried that we would try it out and nothing would happen and he would...

Take It On Tuesday

This has been one long week already! After yesterdays debacle I woke up today with every intention of shaking the bad energy from yesterday. I think I did a pretty good job at it. I definitely didn’t have a great day, but was able to move forward and get things done. Homeschool was slow...

Take it On Tuesday!

This past week was so relaxing, but not really. Only kinda. Mostly because I finally conquered the massive piles of laundry. The downside of actually putting it away is the fact that I now have to go upstairs to get clothes for the kids. The upside of it, is that in combination with my...

Take It On Tuesday

Have you ever had one of those weeks where no matter how hard you try, you can’t seem to get anything done? A good portion of the past week has been like that for me. I think some one might have spiked my kids milk with an extra bit of Crazy the other day...
