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! 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...

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...

I Love me Some Zoloft and A Few Polls for You to Answer

Ugh! I Miss My Zoloft!

Somehow, I managed to let my prescription to Zoloft run out with no refills. This is not really the best week for this to happen, I guess that is why I didn’t realize it was gone. By the time realized it was gone, and I don’t have a midwife any more it was too...
