Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

I have been reading several blogs, most of which I have posted at the left side of this page. I have been enjoying these blogs for these reasons:
- They make me laugh
- I have been blessed by the SOAP posts and other biblical based writings
- I have learned many interesting things, especially in the cooking category
- I have certainly been convicted about many things and I have started to make some positive changes in myself and in my home

And so I continue to quickly read these posts nearly every day. A couple days ago I was reading Kate's blog, A Simple Walk and she had a book giveaway. Here is a link to her post. asimplewalk.blogspot.com

I need this book! So I posted a comment and I won!!! I can hardly wait to get the book and get my pms emotional roller coaster under control.

Before I was pregnant I only ever had cramping, fairly significant but controllable with Midol or something like that. Then I had babies and everything about my cycly changed. I no longer have cramps, at least nothing more than a bit of achiness (sp?). But there have been months that I literally think I am losing my mind and am near emotional breakdown. I have been fairly good at not being psycho mom, not so good at freaking out at my poor hubby who usually takes the brunt of the emotional attacks. He has told me that some days he doesn't know which war will be fought when he comes in the door. It might be me on some kind of a warpath or me falling into a puddle of tears. And for some reason, every month I seem to forget about the cause of my emotional roller coaster and really do think I am losing my mind. Then just about when the ride is over I realize what is going on, that it is all pms. arrggg!!!

So now you can see why I was so excited about this book and I knew that if I didn't win it I would soon be looking for in on Amazon. I entered my comment first on Kate's blog and followed the links to comment on a couple others. Maybe I will win more than one copy and have my own giveaway!

Thank you Kate for the giveaway it really made my day!
