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.
