New Arrivals

I really should be going to bed but will wait for the Melatonin to kick in. 

Three of our rabbits have birth to kits since Sunday! We are so excited! We have a pet breed and two meat breeds. The hubby is NOT okay with eating rabbit meat. I do hope he will give it a try at least once. The kids don't have a problem with it. They are really good about eating wild game and have brought home wild rabbit that they've made jerky out of or just skinned and cut and threw in the over for a nice dinner. They don't see raising rabbits for meat any different than raising cows or chickens.

I am on round 2 of the HCG diet and doing pretty well. I'm about a week in and down about ten pounds-ish. I want to drop about 40 pounds before I graduate in May and this diet is the only thing that will make that happen. I am pretty stoked about it! I already feel thinner and I think it shows a little.

Mood wise...I think I am ok. School is a big stress when the hubby and kids aren't cutting me slack at home. I try not to snap at them but sometimes it comes out before I can stop it. I don't think I need medication though. But I think the hubby has mentioned it once.

I have been having some symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis that really scares me. I was supposed to go to the doctor last week and schedule an MRI but I didn't go. We are behind on bills and I didn't want to rack up another couple thousand dollars that won't get paid and end up in collections with the rest. I know I need to go. I don't think the hubby really understands what MS is...or maybe I am just married to the most insensitive asshole around. He doesn't seem the least bit concerned.

I did blow on him a little. He made an appointment with the chiropractor which wouldn't be a big deal if we weren't so behind on bills. It ticked me off that I put off a serious appointment to determine if I have a serious illness yet he wants to slap down cash to have his back adjusted. I understand pain. I live with it daily. I just feel like I am always putting my health aside because we don't have the money yet he wants to throw money around on his back or his Droid cell phone or whatever--nevermind my son is wearing sneakers with holes in them in the winter after 80 inches of snow and wind chills in excess of 40 below zero! UGH. Can someone say frustrating?

Thankfully my ex made a child support payment this week so I am taking the kids shopping. They need new underwear, socks, etc. It won't be for too much, just the basics. I know the hubby will probably pitch a bitch, but when he has needs, money is no object (hell, if he has wants, it seems money is no object) so the kids should be no different. I can't have my son walking around with holes in his shoes. That just isn't right.

Happy New Year

Things are off to an alright start. I found out I have to repeat 2 classes for college in order to graduate in May. I will be SO glad to be done with school. Now, if only I can find a job...I was really hoping we'd have a new sheriff because the current one is an asshole and won't even allow me to tour the jail for one of my classes. Stupid. Oh well. Joke's on him I guess because when I am done in May, I will be the first person in our county to be certified as a Reserve Officer. Not that it will do me any good since he cut the reserve program. But at least I will have it and hopefully it will give me an edge in the employment market. I am actually thinking about border patrol...hmm...I wonder if I could stay living where I am. Can't really move since we just bought a house.

The hubby is doing good. I think he is getting tired of being a cop. He is talking about college again. It's getting ugly out there for cops all across our country. Every day the thought of him not coming home is in the back of my mind but I stuff it away. I know that day could come and I think I am prepared for it only because I know if he is killed in the line of duty, he will have died doing what he loved. I just wish he knew that he didn't have to be a cop to be a hero because he was a hero to me when we met 11 years ago...

We're getting buried in snow. Another 8 or so inches is supposed to fall on the 40 inches we've already received. UGH. Even worse is that the temperatures are supposed to drop to -20F to -30F before adding wind chill so it's REALY going to suck. I really am seriously thinking about moving to Arizona. My husband laughs. I don't think he knows how serious I am about it. I love our home here. And I am very happy here. But MAN! The cold is unreal!

There is so much more I could write about but I seriously need to go to bed.
