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.

{mostly} Wordless Wednesday: E Nut Fast Asleep

EJ Asleep Mother's Day 2006

A few photos I thought I lost long ago and found when I actually organized my back-up hard drive a few weeks ago. E Nut has never been one to agree to take a nap. Now at almost 6 years old, he still only naps when he can not fight it any longer. These...

Not something I look forward to. I am pretty good about keeping my computer cleaned up, I scan it with several different programs designed to find spyware, malware, viruses, trojans, bla, bla, yadda, yadda, and all...
