Oh my goodness where to start?!

I guess I'll start back in June of 2009...
It was a beautiful summer morning on June 16th 2009,My husband and I got off work at about 3:30ish and decided since it was such great weather out we would go on a motorcycle ride.Our destination was to his parents house to bring them to dinner being his fathers 55th birthday was the next day...We have a great time that day and ride couldn't have been better.After the ride and dinner we said our good-byes we where on our way back to the reality of life and work for the next day....

The next morning everyone in the world started their day as they do every Wednesday.The weather was beautiful again,nice quite morning that turned into the afternoon....

That's when it all happened!...

11:45pm My husband calls me and says (all in one breath) "Honey I'm on the way to the hospital,my dad just stopped breathing,I'll call you when I get more info,meet me at the hospital as soon as you can" Then hung up the phone so he could drive(come to find out later because he was driving a 100 down the freeway)...

12:15pm I arrive at the hospital, My husband and his mother crying as the doctor tells them everything that has just happened...

Doctor: Well he is stable now but its gonna be a long road,He is young though so he should pull out of this pretty good as we see it now.He did have a heart-attack.The EMT had to shock him 10 times just to get his heart to start again.
(meaning he was legally dead for about 30 minutes,as we found out later),
About half way through it all on of the Doctors stopped by one day and informed us that "there is absolutely no reason why he should be alive today after what he went through,I have been a Doctor for heart-attack patient's for many years now and only 3 of them came out of the same type of situation,Your father is my number 3,This man is here for a reason and this was miracle!"...

Well needless to said many nights,days,family visits and TONS of prayer later..
He is now back at home,work and the everyday activities..He is doing GREAT!
Having that happen has given many of us family members,friends and even the Doctors and nurses a whole new look on life...Never take life for granite! Live EVERY day is if it's your last...Say I LOVE YOU often!

Well I hope you see this blog as a blessing to God cause having this miracle happen to us. That's how we see it...That's what I call ANSWERED PRAYERS! :)

OK so I have a ton on my mind today, and don't really know where to start..So I'm starting this new thing,Every Friday I'll write 3 RANDOM things that are on my mind :)

1.) I kinda feel overwhelmed with life at times(as I'm sure we all do).So last night I wrote down 39 things I'm stressed about right now...Ugh!

2.) I don't know about you but There's just something about JUDGING that makes my skin crawl...I know we're all going to do it now and then being we're human, but have YOU ever walked up to someone and told them to their face,they where in the wrong (when you weren't in the situation your now judging them for being wrong in)??
Well over the last 2 years or so I have had SEVERAL people do just THAT!
I think the wost part about being in that situation is,what do you say to that?!!....

I love the smell of spring and it's almost here...but the waiting for it just kills...

Well till next time my friends,
Happy Random Friday! :)

Hump days over!

Well hump days over and that means only 2 day till the weekend and way to much fun!
I love my weekends,It always end up being that I spend most of it with all my siblings...Bonfires,B-B-Qs,Scrapbook and anything else we can come up with...The last 2 1/2 years have been pretty hard for me and my family so it's nice to finally be back together!...

Two back up a little my parents got a divorce 2 1/2 years ago from being married 30+ years & 8 children later...So needless to say Yes it was hard...Being through that with my family has really shown me that it doesn't matter how old you are when your parents split it still hurts weather adult or child....I will never wish divorce on anyone...And Hugs to all you who have had to go through it...

Blessing to you all!! :)

My husband just txt me to say...I just got a call about _____ from work,A tree fell on him and he died this morning!...Please keep the family in your prayers...I know you don't have any info about them but I believe that God will know what we're all praying about....Remember to take ONE day at a time & never forget to say I love you!


Well I took some cold medicine last night and slept like a baby...Woke up feeling a little better still a little slow moving :/ Good thing of my Turbo cat(a.k.a my baby)..I love how he knows whenever I'm not feeling good,He's such a cuddle bug...Some people say pets are just good at acting, but I think he really knows :)

"Not Me" Monday

Yup for sure!...I did NOT stay up WAY to late last night with my husband and his friend,I did NOT sit by the fire drinking 2 bottles of wine myself and I did NOT enjoy every min...I also did NOT wake-up to a huge pounding headache and I did NOT sleep in way to late...Let's just say it's NOT the best way to start a Monday...But at least I did NOT enjoy any part of last night :)

Happy Monday to you all!!

If you DO want to read many more NOT ME MONDAY posts go Here

My Baby!!

This is just a little of why I wake up in the morning :)

His name is Turbo,His 2 1/2 and I'm not sure what breed but I can honestly say He is the BEST cat in the world!! Some day I'll post a link of him in YouTube so everyone can see what the day and a life of Turbo would be like :)

Yes he is my baby!!

In my head

Do you ever feel like you not going anywhere in life BUT yet you seem to be pulled in EVERY other direction all at the same time?

Even at the small age of 10 that's how I would feel all the time...

Life for the most part was good but like I said before, coming from a large family comes with it's ups and downs....As the oldest girl life was a little more over whelming then I realized,it wasn't till years later that I understood it wasn't always in your head...

One of the hardest things in my life was the schooling! Yes I did say I loved being home-schooled, but as you will see now and then in my upcoming blogs I didn't really have the best education....I don't blame anyone because some times people don't really know anything different or even that my life at the time was in their hands as much as I was....I know this doesn't make scene to you moms but I will TRY my hardest to help you understand what I'm talking about in more blogs to come!

But for now happy Monday!
PLEASE vote cause this will help with future blogs! :)

It's Friday!!!

I always loved Fridays when I was little, Fridays ment "One more day till we got cereal!!"
Yup that's right every morning for breakfast we would have to pick from Oat-meal or malt-o-meal, so by the time Saturday came around it was crazy time...If you were the last one out of bed there was NO way you were getting anything....Course now that I have my own rules I was cereal just about everyday :) I love being grown-up(kinda)..LOL

The other great thing about Fridays was MOVIE night!! but this was ony super cool if you were 13 or older,cause that ment you got to watch a PG-13 movie with mom & dad...yup thoes where the days :)

Oh to have the simple days now and then...yes to all you young readers it is fun to be "all grown-up" but what us adults wouldn't give to have a simple day again....You know like a NAP.....yeah the naps I cryed about cause I didn't want them....I now cry about cause I CAN'T have just one...LOL

Well hope you have a great weekend and if your eating cereal Saturday, ENJOY!! :)

So where to start?!

I guess I'll go back to who I am and all that :)

I'm the 3rd oldest of 8 children (yes we are all from the same parents), There are 5 boys and 3 girls (I'm the oldest girl)...We have all been home-schooled our whole life's.My dad comes from a large family,Mom comes from a family of 3 kids.I got along with all my sidling,with the now and then fights as kids always seem to get into.We all helped out with the homeschooling and cleaning as my mom was often out of the house do to being an in home mid-wife for other homeschooling family's..Dad always had 2-3 jobs at a time just to keep food in ALL ours mouths.I love being from a large family.One of my favorite things about it,Is everytime we had a meal it was like thanksgiving dinner...That's something I think I will always miss..

Well till next time..

Have a great thursday everyone!
