Answers to some questions...

Good Morning and Happy Thursday!

I received some questions on email from someone who just wants to go by "J" and here they are:

Do you and your sister wives do any prenatal care outside the home?  
Yes, we have a doctor in town and she's cool with us.
Do you have a OB/Gyn that visits you?  
Yes, the same doctor.
Do you prefer to birth naturally, in your home?  What about your sister wives?  
Yes, we do! I had to have the twins in the hospital but the rest of my kids and all of them (I hope) will be born at home. It's just a lot nicer and there's no social workers to deal with afterwards.

Do you or your sisters use a birthing pool to have your babies?
No. We have a big shower in the master bathroom and that's where we do it because it's tons easier to clean up.

What do you think of unassisted childbirth or orgasmic childbirth?
Hate to say I don't know what that is.
 
(After I replied to him I looked it up here: http://www.unassistedchildbirth.com/ )

Do you and your sisters help each other with the births?  Such as delivering each other’s babies?  Or does Steve get involved here?
The OB/Gyn or sometimes a midwife comes out to the house and everyone else is usually involved too. It's a family thing and the older kids sometimes will get to see a baby born.
 
And Andrew had a question if Steve was trying to give me a baby and the answer as usual is yes! LOL!
 
There you go!

Happy September!!

It's  September again and it's the start of my happy season: Fall!

I love the summer and running around without shoes and getting to wear sun dresses, shorts, and tanks, but fall is my favorite season! It's the start of the time when the evenings have a chill in the air and when I can grab a child and pull him close and it's not too hot to enjoy cuddle time!

Tomorrow is my 26th birthday and while we don't have too much planned I know there will be some lovely surprises in store for me tomorrow and I can't wait!

The season starts off with baby news because Cydne is for sure pregnant again and is due around the end of May next year. Christie QUIT her job after a lot of years and is going to be home 24/7 from now on and I can't tell you all how happy that makes me to have her home! Amy is doing well and has her two month anniversary soon and she's starting to relax a bit and enjoy how we do things our own way back here at the ranch.

My little Laura is wearing glasses now and she is nearsighted with an astigmatism and the eye doctor says it is pretty common for red heads. She's not too bad with the eyesight but was pretty happy to be able to see a lot further than before and spent the last week telling us all about all the things around the ranch!

The election craziness is pretty wild. It's crazy how Donald Trump became a racist and all those awful things only after he said he was running for President. Before that everyone liked him just fine. To me he just seems like an awful lot of people I know who just say what they think without trying to make it sound like something they don't think. That used to be called honesty but people don't like honesty anymore.

Hillary looks sick and it seems like a lot of people are not wanting to think about it. You just look at her in 2008 and look at her now and you see it plain as day. Doesn't mean she's too sick to do the job but she's got something going on and I pray for her healing and for her peace.

People are getting up now and it's time for me to go get breakfast started so I hope you all have a wonderful September and the start of fall!

Hugs!

August 22, 2016 - Answers to questions!

I'm just going to keep this one simple and answer some questions:

Helene asked about the apples and we put in Mutsu apples and they have to be sprayed with an anti-biotic which is kind of weird but they get a disease that can spread so they get sprayed when they're in fruit.

Anonymous asked: List the ten dumbest things you ever did!

(Just ten? LOL!)

Okay:

1. Jumped off a 60 foot tall bridge into maybe ten feet of water...never again!!

2. Got crazy drunk when I was 15...ugh.

3. I didn't go out with a certain boy when he asked me out...I missed out on a really nice guy!

4. My whole three days working at Starbucks.

5. A thong bikini.

6. Doing a jump on a snowboard...I discovered I can't jump on a snowboard!

7. "Sure, I can cook five turkeys for a family dinner!"

8. Petting a rooster.

9. No, it's not a cute dog, it's a coyote.

10. And my dumbest thing ever: We had a portable milking machine for the cattle and we don't have cattle anymore so I figured it's just like a breast pump, right? Let's just say that it was funny!!!

And bison are TONS easier than cattle! Bison almost totally take care of themselves, they don't need to go in the barns when it's cold, they know not to be out in the open during lightning, and they kill wolves and dogs. We used to have three or four full-time hands on the ranch for the cattle and now we just hire hands when we're bringing them in PLUS we get more per pound on bison than cattle!

Thank you to everyone for their thoughts about the passing of my mom. I really appreciate that so many people who really don't know me that well would care so much! You're all very wonderful people!

We spread my mom's ashes on the mountain up behind our ranch and it was crazy to walk back to the house after that and know that her whole life and who she was is just over. At least she got to see her grandchildren and that's a good thing.

I will admit still having mixed feelings. I wish I were more upset but my mom was more or less not around anymore after she met meth and meth was the love of her life. We had some nice moments the past few years but in the middle of it all she would lie and I think she even stole from me the last time she was at the house. Somewhere along the line I will either let it go or just move on.

At home we've had some changes. Christie is going to be away on work most of the time for a while so I'm actually the senior wife around the house most of the time now and that's weird. Steve is home a lot these days and we also added our helper Amy to the family and she and Steve are working on a baby. Steve is working on that same thing with me and Cydne, too. It won't be long before there's news from someone!

Life at the ranch is good. We sold off some of the bison herd and got $4.55 a pound and that was pretty awesome. We had a good calving season so we're actually up by almost ten head even after the sale so next year looks pretty good, too!

We put in 30 apple trees this week and we're hoping that they make it through the winter and maybe we'll have apples in a few years. Next year we'll put up a deer fence to stop the critters from eating the leaves and fruit before they show up bot for right now they just need to grow.

I got my first dental crown and that was actually nice. I didn't realize how much pain I was in from my tooth until the dentist fixed it. My left side of my mouth had swollen up so it was dentist time and he said it was a bad filling and the good news was it didn't need a root canal. My lesson is to go to the dentist more often.

We've been getting a LOT of contacts from people in the media wanting to do programs on poly people and we've been saying no. We don't want the attention. I guess it's thing with the media right now.

It's been a long time since I really wrote too much and it would be nice to answer any questions if anyone has them. So ask away!

Hope you all had a wonderful July!

My mom died.

I found out this week that my mom died back in March. It was drugs. She was 47 and I can't believe she's gone. I thought she was doing better and was keeping clean but I guess that was just something she was saying to me.

Just a quick post before I got to get going!

Our helper Amy moved in on Wednesday and OMG has she made a difference! So wonderful to have an extra pair of hands in the house! And she is probably staying on as wife #4 and that will be wonderful!

Both Steve and Christie are gone on work but we get Christie back in a couple weeks and that will be nice. Steve is busy for the summer and that is a very good thing because the oil business just stopped and really hasn't come back yet.

No baby news for now mostly because Steve hasn't been here. The family is doing fine. My little Patty got her first pair of glasses and she's having fun seeing things for the first time that she couldn't see before. It's been fun to be with her and discover the world all over again!

Not much poly news. Have to say I am disappointed that poly isn't legal yet but I guess I have to be patient.

I have two nice friends I am pen pals with and they make me think of things that I don't think I've ever shared here:

1. Kitchen Bouquet is an amazing thing to have for making tasty beef/bison/pork gravies!!!

2. Being a nanny is a great way to learn about having a family of your own!

3. And a lot of people are talking about politics and it's sad that the three people running are the best we can do. So our choices are the guy with the weird hair, the crazy old man who wants to try communism, and the lady who has AWFUL taste in clothes and then spends CRAZY money so she can look like a Romulan from Star Trek!!!



We all need to pray for our country!

Have a wonderful and blessed day everyone!

Questions from Richard

Hi there!

I checked the blog and found some questions and will answer them in a moment. Steve is away on work and so is Christie so Cydne and me are having some time together and it's been kind of nice. Hope you're all doing well!

Okay so here are the questions and my answers.

1. Was your first time with Steve nonconsensual or semi-consensual? I get the idea you're not 100% into it.

It's complicated. I wanted to do it, I said I would, and I was scared. Pretty normal from what everyone tells me so I don't think it was anything but just a normal time with my husband.

2. What do you think of childbirth and pregnancy after doing it as much as you have?

The whole thing never stops being a miracle to me!!! It's always crazy when I find out I'm pregnant and then it's amazing when I get to meet this new person in my life for the first time!

3. Do you ever get jealous when Steve is with another wife?

Sometimes. I'd be lying if I said anything else.

4. Will there be a new fourth wife?
Pretty safe to say yes.

5. Is Steve working or is he off work like most oil field workers these days?

He is working but it was nice having him home so I'm looking forward to winter again when he'll be here a lot.

6. If you had not chosen poly what do you think you would be doing with your life at age 26?

Drugs like my parents maybe? A loser job? College was never going to happen so maybe the best would be a job somewhere and maybe meet someone.

7. What do you think about when you're having sex? Is it all passion or what?

Just had the same kind of thought in a letter I wrote to a friend. Sometimes I enjoy it and I get into it and other times it is something I do because it is something I am supposed to do. Sometimes there's passion and other times it's like brushing your teeth. I mean I love being close with Steve but sometimes it's just something I do for him and not really much for me.

Hope that answers that for you.
