I stumbled on this web site while blog hoping earlier today.
Some of the stories here made me laugh out loud, but a lot of them made me sick!

I think this started out as a fun outlet for overwhelmed moms to just "vent" and realize that there is no such thing as a perfect mother. However, the more recent posts are unbelievable!
These women should NEVER have been given the privilege of being a mother.
I can't believe they find this stuff to be amusing......let alone post about it!
Here are just a few of the posts I've read.....
I've never been one that like displays of affection, especially hugs. My 8 year old loves to hug, sometimes when I shew him away when he asks for what I feel are excessive hugs.

I had my daughter when I was 17 yrs old, honestly I wanted to have abortion or put her up for adoption. But my mother kept telling me about these women who had abortion.."she went into depression" "she got mentally ill" etc. She also said if I gave my daughter up for adoption, she would take her and raise her. I felt like I had no choice but to have her. So now my daughter is 4 years old, and I'm still angry at myself for the choice I made. I feel like I don't have a life anymore, I work but all the money goes to feeding, clothing, daycare, toys, etc. for her! I can't get child support for the father just because he doesn't work!!! He's 22 years old and still lives with his mother who pays his bills!!
I love my daughter but sometimes "this" is too much..
I'm a bad mother... : (

But then there are these:
When my daughter was about 1 or so, I was changing her diaper. It was a Sunday. I swear she had a worm. I pulled one out of her bottom when I was wiping her. It was like 4 inches long. I called the doctor. We all got wormed. Her doctor wanted to see her on Monday and bring the worm with us. I walked in, (my MIL had already taken her and I met them from work)they both started laughing at me...My MIL had forgotten to tell me that they ate chinese and Mandy LOVES SPROUTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a bean sprout!!!HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.....We all got wormed...for nothing.

As my daughter got older, I kept telling my hubby to "watch what you say" around her and he keeps telling me she doesn't pay attention. As all Mom's know (guess not Dads tho) kids will repeat anything and mostly at the worst time. My hubby is not the most kind driver, so if someone is in front of him, not moving to his fast pace, he usually yells at them "Come on ya friggin bone head MOVE" (thank goodness he has made his language more PG rated)
So one day as I am sitting at a stop light behind another car with all the windows down in the car and my 3 yo in the backseat, the light turns green and the car in front doesn't move as soon as the light turns green. So in a loud voice I hear from the back seat "Come on ya friggin bonehead MOVE"
Gotta love what Dads teach their kids!

Keep in mind this event happened on a day that this particular 15 year old boy was acting like a 15 year old boy. ATTITUDE, Hormone-filled, awkward hairs popping out of his chin Ball of Yuckyness.
15 year old son says to mom.....
"Mom, why did you even have me? I didn't ASK to be born you know!"
The very wise and very beautiful mother quickly responds...
"Well... I didn't know it was going to be YOU!"
Not nice, and yes, I , oops I mean she would have chosen him.... I, er I mean she would have just chosen him without the attitude!
(don't worry.... he burst into laughter and had to admit that his mother is indeed the Queen of Smart-as-a-whip, lightening-fast, comebacks to snotty questions.)

Am I being picky or what??? What do you think of a web page like this???

Chuck and I have these AMAZING friends, the Corley family!

They are members of our church, and a true example of Gods Love on earth!
There is NOTHING this family will not do to help a brother or sister in need. They are always the first to call or show up without you even asking. They were such a blessing to us during Mike's illness and passing! There were days that I would be working and having a really hard time. Out of no where, Janie would call me and say "God just asked me to pray with you you mind?" Wow! It was ALWAYS when I needed it the most!


Janie, Milt, and their children (Craig, Jennifer, and Rachael)have one of the most amazing witnesses I have ever seen.

They own a farm in north Christian County called "Christian Way Farm." They use a theme of "Sowing Seeds For Tomorrows Harvest". This truly is a CHRISTIAN FARM!

Their teen twins, Jennifer and Craig, just returned from a mission trip in the Ukraine where they took the Tres Dias program to a primarily unsaved part of the world to show the love of God!

The farm also follows the Kentucky and Tennessee Combined Curriculum in the areas of science, primary math, practical living,as well as vocational and social studies. Many schools use the farm tours as a teaching field trip.

The program starts with a "food" (such as pizza, tacos, hamburgers and french fries), and teaches the children everything that goes into making that food.

They teach them how to plant all of the veggies needed for the dish, how to care for the calf that will become the meat, how to grind corn for taco get it!

To me, one of the most touching "teaching stories" Janie does is to carve a pumpkin for the children. She uses that activity to teach the story of salvation! She explains how we are all a whole being (like the pumpkin) and when we accept Jesus as our Saviour, God cleans out all of the "yucky stuff" (the insides of the pumpkin) and puts his light and love inside of us (the finished pumpkin with a candle in it) AWESOME!!

The 3rd Saturday of each October, the farm hosts "Harvest Praise".
That's October 17 for all of you that are looking for an awesome way to spend the day with your family!
Harvest Praise is a fun filled day to play and give God praise for his abundant blessings of the year.
There will be puppet shows,live music, music, and more music!

Your children can navigate the corn crop mazes, play in the grain trucks, race on the tricycle track, pick a pumpkin, explore the straw castles, learn to shell and grind corn, pet and feed the animals, and many many other activities.

Mom and dad can also participate, or browse the country store, ride on the lawnmower train, take a hayride, or just rock on the front porch! The food is plenty, as well as the fellowship.
I guarantee you'll have a great time!

If you can't come to Harvest Praise on the 17th, then visit the farm on the other Saturdays in October. The hayrides, pumpkins, animals, cornmaze, etc are available. The music and food are not part of those days other Saturdays, but there is still plenty to do.

And if you can't make it on a Saturday, the farm is open every weekday thru October from 9 am to 1 pm. If those times don't fit your schedule still, just contact them--they will be glad to find a time that you can get to the farm.

Come on out to Harvest Praise on the 17th and meet the Corley's!It's an all day event, and I promise you won't be dissapointed!!

The news today reported that Extreme Makeover Home Edition is once again building a home for a family in need in Clarksville, Tennessee!
That's only about 15 miles from where I live.
I'm so excited!

They did a build in Clarksville in 2005 for the family of an army medic that had been injured in Iraq.
It was fantastic!

This build will be done the week of October 17th. That also happens to be the week Chuck and I are on vacation! We had talked of possibly going to the Smokey Mountains for a few days, but I think I'd much rather volunteer to work on this build!

If any of you are in the Clarksville/Hopkinsville/Ft. Campbell area, you can go here and fill out a volunteer application to work on the project.
Not everyone will be accepted to work, but they do need about 2000 people.
Everything from builders, to painters, to people catering for the crew are going to be needed.
We ALL have something to offer!

I love this show. It always makes me cry, and also reinforces my beliefs that there are still good caring people in America!

Come on Kentucky and Tennessee..... let's show these people some Southern Hospitality!
