Edited later to answer a question: He actually was fine and going out to eat dinner right after the fight. It looks so much worse than it really is. After watching what seems like endless fights ;-) There are two types of being knocked out. There is the your out completely, with your eyes rolled in the back of your head, and then there is the knocked out where you are really rocked. When you are rocked it lasts for a split second. You can see that after Rob hit the mat (and the guy got in a few more) he sat up and shook it off. There realy isnt much residual effects except you may have a slight headache.
Rob had a few bruises but his biggest bruise was of course his ego. He's tuff though, he can take it.

You know you are just a silly girl, when you are out mowing the yard and tens of hundreds (ok, maybe not that many) grasshoppers are flying at you and LANDING ON YOU and all you keep saying is I.WANT.MY.HUBBY!
Love you babe, the front, side and behind the fence is mowed.

Then there are the things that I am working on for the store. Here is a bib that I made the pattern for last night and sewed it up quickly to see how it looked. I am going to make a "special" bib for little girls, it will be neat (I haven't seen anything like it before) so I'm excited to see what everyone else thinks. I also have a toy line I am excited about starting, but I don't want to give away any details right now. Fun, Fun, Fun!

I have said before that when I grow up I want to be a midwife. Well last night I got my start. A friend and fellow MOMY, was due on the 11th and had been dropped by her midwife on the 8th. Yes, you heard me right, DROPPED as she began to go into labor. WHAT?
Anyway they decided that they would go it alone. They both felt confident that they could do it, but were nervous about all the what-ifs. She began labor yesterday in the early morning hours. As the day progressed yesterday, I would call every few hours and talk with her husband, get a feel if everything was OK, then leave them alone to carry on. She was doing great and laboring well throughout the day. I called again at 10:30 yesterday evening and her hubby asked me to come over "quick" I could here her in the background (you know the transition sounds ;-) Her hubby was getting nervous because he had always been a side man, holding a leg and looking on. I hoped in my car and drove the 5 minutes to her house. I'll spare you all the details, but Airealissa(sp) Praise was born at 11:00pm. She was about 8 lbs. So I had my first delivery last night. What a blessing! GOD is sooooooo GOOD!
I have a headache today, so I'm off to find the Excedrin Migraine.

You may not have won in the ring but you win everyday as my husband and our children's father! I feel safe when I am with you, I know that you can protect us.
We are very lucky to have you, so strong on the outside and so soft on the inside.....that's what I love about you most. You will always be my knight, my warrior and my love!
Your biggest fan,

I have been going through things here, emotional stuff, that I need to work through. A feeling of "the world would be a better place if I weren't in it" type of feeling. I know this is a lie from the father of lies, and I am digging deep into scripture to defeat that lie. I am not one to fall into depression, it is not like me. But dispair seems to be a shadow following a few steps behind me.
I don't want to take y'all on that journey with me. Nor do you deserve to go ;-) I really appreciate how sweet you ladies are, and care for you deeply. Isn't it sad that the people to uplift in time of need are those I have never met. I do thank you so much for caring!
So I am off to take a break for a while, to focus on my kiddos and my home. Perhaps even myself. Just to simply be for a time.
Someone asked about the store, it is still open....but I will not be taking any orders until August 1st.

Its been a long time sense my first blog entry. Four years this November! My initial thought was that sense family and friends live so far away this would be a great way for them to keep up with the children. But the truth is that they don't read it.
Then it became a sort of diary for me to put my thoughts, of good days and bad, as I have never been real good at keeping a paper diary. Plus the fun of adding pictures and movie clips made it interactive and fun.
As I began to enter into the blog world I was able to see into others homes, even others with large families. It was such a blessing, and still is. I then thought that maybe I had something to contribute to this big blog world. Maybe some nuggets of wisdom, some empathy for others, possibly even give some hope and encouragement to some. This seems to be where I have missed the mark. I have nothing to share with others that cant be much more adequately said by others. I'm just another voice in the big bucket of voices and mine is not where I would want others to spend their time. There are great blogs out there, of wonderful ladies and families, with much wisdom to share!
I will miss most the prayers that I coveted from those of you who so graciously lifted me up. Your prayers were the only ones uttered on my behalf, and they were felt. Thank You!
I will still visit my favorite homes here on the web, and look forward to gleaning from you ladies.
Have a BLESSED life, with much peace!
I am enjoying seeing things pull together. Watching walls turn into what I have wanted them to be for what seems like forever. Seeing floors clean and new. Tying up loose ends. But I am still tired. I take on such huge tasks, because.well.they.have.to.get.done. I have to do them! I cant wait to get back to my regular scheduled duties. Maybe Rob will be more available in a few weeks as well, and it will lighten the load. My super powers are running low. Sometimes I think is all this really worth it, yet it has to get done. We could sell the house as is for about 20,000 less. Yet with some extra work it will be worth so much more. Simple work really....but theres just one me. SIGH!
