    So when people find out you are making breakfast the word spreads and you end up with a houseful. 11 people for breakfast and they stayed through dinner... Fun, sad cause my Seahawks lost, busy, friend packed day. Looking forward to a break tomorrow... Only two eggs laid today. Over fed girls cause everyone wants a turn to feed them... Tired puppies and mamma. Have a great night folks

    Didn't sleep well last night. Today's the only day I am allowed to sleep in and my 16 year old woke me up at 5 to do his hair... I created a monster with that one. His future wife will surely hate me. Lol oh well... First child... Live in learn. I'm hoping for no company tonight and a chance to just hangout with the hubby... I love my friends but I just need a break. I have four layers so far.. Angel decided to lay her first egg... It was rough on her, she was in the box for over four hours. Hopefully she will get the hang of it. Got to get up and at em... These boys need to get up and get going

    Just curios as to why no one on the Washington sights nice.... I avoid them like the plague which is sad... Cause I love talking chicken. Not a good representation of my state. This makes me sad...

    My dream has been heavily on my mind.... Yet so far away. This is the first time I've been unemployed... Health reasons... In 23 years. I have cut costs. I have made changes but yet growing boys seem to offset the money saving changes. I want a three year goal to own a house on a decent enough lot for our animals... Costs seem to rise higher and higher.... Everything I set aside there seems to be an emergency.... I live in a crap hole with my kids... Cheap rent. Not enough room... Everything falling apart. Half the outlets don't work... No ceiling fans work... Mold grows faster than I can clean behind every bed in in our one bathroom that doesn't have a fan... Can't move because I can hardly afford our tent now which is the cheapest you can find. We don't ever go out.... No fun... No restaurants... Not even fast food. My heart is burdened tonight. Every step I take leads me further away...... Feeling defeated but know that with a few years of sacrifice and working hard I can make a change. Just need everyone else on board. Good night.... Going to watch some Netflix and rest.

    Keep your head up. Sometimes we have to know how much we can deal with to appreciate what we expect from ourselves. Look for the small victories and progress forward and eventually they will make the whole picture. This all sounds a bit fortune cookie but its what it is. Snap those boys into shape. Choirs. Daily and weekly. Free time should be earned similar to sports and grades. Just stay focused on what you want and less on the time it takes.

    good advice @attimus
    I need to copy that down for myself. I have a lot of things I want to do and to get, i need to remember the baby steps needed to get there and they will eventually happen.

    I know how hard it is to want something and have it seem to be slipping away. When we bought our first place we were looking for a farmstead. We ended up in a modular on 20 acres in the woods - 1/2 of it was swamp. My dreams slip a little bit. The second place was a really nice house in a subdivision - only dogs, cats and horses allowed. The dreams slip a little more down the hill and seem unreachable. This last place took us over a year to find, we had two mortgages for 8 months after we bought it and we lived over 16 hours apart in different states since I couldn't quit my job and move until we sold our house. Now that i have the 25 acres and farm buildings - I haven't been able to find a job in the last year to afford to do the projects that I need to. I finally got hired by Menards for a part-time position and our bank account has stopped hemorrhaging - but we are not getting ahead at all. But it will come! I am not giving up.;
