Until April 2nd my ebook Mary's House is free! Download a copy today. I have also bit the bullet and paid for editing. It was needed. It was hard knowing my work was out there with some lingering errors. I am not guaranteeing perfection, but both my ebooks have been... Continue reading

Thanks Robin! I am sure in time we will figure each other out and a balance will come. It’s just overwhelming right now! Especially with CONSTANT appointments for her and visits and illness….it is so hard!

I guess I could have been more specific hey!?! It’s more just coping with 4 kids! I feel like I don’t have enough ME to go around!! I can’t be all of them need me to be, so I feel a little like I am stretched too far, out of energy, out of patience etc. Which is hard for me, because I thought we were doing this foster journey thing because we are pretty good parents and have lots of love to spread around, but right now I am just snapping more, huffing more and crying more! So I feel like I am sorta sucking out at this! LOL. Does that make sense? Thanks Alicia

I totally agree! The plan is we meet at the tree till the whole family is together, then we head across the street to our friends house! Ya way too close still! But I needed a spot they were comfortable meeting it, if for whatever reason they had to leave the house without us! So crazy here hey!?! What is up with that!?
