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.

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

Happy Thursday Y’all! After last week’s storm, this beautiful week was just what we needed. Warm weather, open windows, a dry basement and hot water. We are so thankful for all of those things! Tonight I managed to get the kids out the door after dinner for an evening walk, something that I haven’t...

I Confess

I love the warm weather, but have been missing my super soft and fuzzy favorite sweat pants. I told the kids it was too late for dessert, but really I wanted the last piece of chocolate chunk cake. Yummy! I have to go get more Easter candy. I ate everything I bought today. I...

We had an amazing Mended Little Hearts meeting tonight. Our 3 leaders live in different towns and only really get to see each other once a month. It has always made planning for the group a bit difficult. We had a leaders meeting tonight and were able to sit down and talk about our...

10 Things Tuesday

Here is another 10 Things Tuesday blog hop that is too late to be a blog hop. This of course means that I have failed at at least 2 of my 10 things to do from last week. I suppose since I am late to bed, I need to get this ball rolling and...

10 Things Tuesday

I know how completely ineffective it is to try to host a blog hop and not get it posted until the end of the day. That doesn’t usually stop me from trying though. I just got off the phone with some great Mended Little Hearts leaders for Virgina and SW Pennsylvania. I love conference...

Thankful Thursday

Thankful Thursday at The Nut House

Happy Thursday Y’all! I almost let the entire day come and go before I realized that today was Thursdays and I still didn’t post Thankful Thursday. It has been a hard week for me. Sometimes I let things get to me when they shouldn’t. Sometimes I need to step back and accept that I...

We finally got the new Just Dance 2 last weekend. We’ve been having a great time playing Wii and the kids have been playing Wii Fit with me, but most of the active games that we have are 1 player. With Wii Fit, we have to take turns playing. I love the Mario Cart...

10 Things Tuesday

You might remember last year I used to join the Magnolia Queen and her 10 Things Tuesdays. It was one of my favorite blog hops, mostly because I love making lists 😉 But it was also a quick and simple way to organize my week and by sharing it with everyone, it helped me...

Get Fit with Wii Fit with New Game! Get Ready to Dance!

OK, so I have absolutely nothing to post about. It is obvious that between Owee & Honey Nut getting sick, being exhausted from no real sleep for several nights and my running out of Zoloft there was no time or energy for working out. Those two babies are still fairly sick. They both have...
