Been a while. August 4, 2014

Hi there!

It's been a while and I have enjoyed the break from the drama and it's been nice to have the email drop off.

But I got a note from a friend who said I should post an update so here goes:

We're having problems with the US Park Service coming on our land. Twice now they've cut our fence and tried to steal some of our tagged bison claiming they 'wandered off' of their land! They're clearly tagged as our bison but I guess if you're the government then it's okay to do whatever the fuck you want. We're probably just going to go back to Black Angus because this is too much hassle and we know we can't win. We just need to get the calves grown enough to sell and then we'll stop bison ranching.

Steve continues to work in the oil fields and he's got a pretty big crew working for him now. Enough of a crew that he is home at least one whole week every month.

And that has had predictable results! (-:

Macy and Cydne are pregnant again and Christie and I expect to be expecting soon enough. We've been loving having Christie home from her work and the house has been a lot more 'alive' with her home! The babies are all doing well. Christie's boy Eric is six now and he's a big help around the house. He can even drive the small yard tractor and he's pretty good at it! Of course, he only gets to do this with an adult right close by.

My twins are four now and Laura is reading and Patty is more the tomboy and is more interested in the animals than she is with things in the house and learning to read. My boys are doing well and toddling and my Sarah Michelle is still my momma's girl and has to be held a lot every day.

Church is good but we lost some members as people moved away looking for work. The oil boom has been wonderful for us but not every family is able to make money on it. Things are still hard for a lot of people.

I'm still quilting and manage to make about one a month.

The chickens are doing good but I'm down to about thirty of them because it was so much work.

We still have our Polish guys helping on the ranch and they are awesome! One of them brought over his wife and they live in one of the houses out by the main road. They're nice people and VERY Catholic and they know we're poly and we know they won't be. We get along really well.

Can't think of anything else to write right now so I will close up.

I'm still open to questions if anyone cares.

Love to you all!

- Megan

  5. I'm curious; after five babies do you still feel it when Steve cums in you?

  6. I love the picture of your land. It looks so beautiful. My husband and I are currently looking for a little place out in the country too... Hoping to have chickens of our own although more for personal use. At the moment our only real goal is to try and be self sufficient. We'll see if anything else comes from it.
    I like your articles about polygamy and the Bible. I think people sometimes forget that the Patriarchs of the Bible had more than one wife... They had many! Look at David! And people like to use his story as a way to say see... Polygamy is bad! Meanwhile it was the Murder God didn't like. He even said, if you had wanted more wives... I would have given you more! Clearly, not so much about the relationship... *sigh*
    What Church do you attend?
    Try not to let people get you down when they send you hate mail. I know that is easier said than done... But there are many here who support you. Try to remember that and move on passed the jerks. Unfortunately there are a lot of people in this world who instead of looking at something new, thinking about it and deciding whether they agree with it or whether the idea has merits, will see something different from themselves and simply jump down their throat. And unfortunately, it's a lot of Christians who do this. Don't let them hurt you. The only one you need to worry about is God. And I guarantee he will love you even if you make mistakes once and awhile. ;)
