A quick note on moderation

I'm going to try leaving the moderation open again but I am no longer going to allow anonymous comments. If you want to make some nasty comments you will have to put your name to it.

Things are going okay right now. We lost some cattle in the heat and I lost about 20 of my chickens. That was pretty hard.

I'll try to write more when I get more time.

Andrew's comment

It was bad but I left it there because it was true that I am whiny. Promise I'll try to work on that. If I knew how to edit that thing down I would but I will just leave it.

We got HBO for free last weekend and recorded the last part of Big Love. I never watched a lot of that show but the end was bad. Why kill the husband off? It just seemed wrong and then over someone's grass. Does anyone else think they had way to much drama on that show and that no one who is actually poly is anything like that?

Things are okay here and I hope you all are doing good too.

July 8, 2011

It's been a while since I posted a long post and I had a chance so here goes.

Danny the new baby is doing fine now and he's breathing good without the humidifier on all the time and that's a good thing because my room was pretty gross on the warm nights. He's gaining weight now and that is a relief. Someone mentioned maybe he is allergic to cow milk and he is not getting any cow milk yet.

My girls are both talking now but Patty started first and she's even saying small things like "Want water" "want cookie" and stuff like that.

Steve is doing really good with his work and he says it is the summer time and it's always easy to get work in the summer. Tab is with him working and they get along and are friends anymore. I think Steve likes having Tab around and thinks of him like a son in a way.

Tab and Stevie haven't had any kids yet but she says she is going to be happy to be a mom when the time comes.

Christie and Macy and their kids are doing good, too. What's funny right now is that none of us are pregnant for the first time in a long time. It would be nice to be that way for a while so we could enjoy the summer. I had a small glass of wine on the 4th and it was really nice because it made me feel kind of normal to be able to have a glass of wine and not be the pregnant girl who can't have any.

My bringing up the quiverfull thing caused some problems. It was not because I was arguing about it it was just I wanted to know more about it. It also makes me a little mad that this is what it is but no one wants to call it quiverfull and no one really wants to talk about it but then it is so big a deal. Christie calls it the elephant in the room.

I will deal with it but it is just wrong to me that the truth is not something you're supposed to talk about.

My friend Lydia is pregnant and seems pretty happy about it. She's like me the first time knowing that the baby changes everything and some of your choices go away when you find out you're pregnant. Up until that happens you can think that you can change your mind if you want but after that your responsibilities really change.

I added to my chickens and we made part of the barn into a hen house. I'm not sure exactly how many we have now but we all think it is around 350 chickens now. Every morning I am getting about eight to twelve dozen eggs and the money is starting to help out a lot.

That is about it for right now.

Have a Happy Saturday!
