Be prepared to cry and get really upset at the human race.
I had to watch my best friend in high school go through this. She came to school with welts on her back from a rubber hose, with bruises all over (legs, arms, etc), and with goose eggs on her head. Yes the police were told. Yes child services was involved. Did it do any good? No. They came in and interviewed the parents. The parents told the CS workers that my friend was on drugs. My friend took a drug test. Negative for drugs. They still believed the family and after one day of instigating this case were gone. Yes my friend continued to live in this situation. It makes me sick to see this. It breaks my heart to see this. It bothers me to no end that someone can take their child, their FLESH and BLOOD and do this to them. The only just desserts there will be is in the after life, because they will have to answer for what they have done.
I can't say anymore right know my blood is boiling.
I found this idea on If You Give a Mom a Moment blog, she takes one thing she wants to work on and does it of one week. Like last week she made it a point to take her kids out of the house at least one day a week. Or the week before that where she read her scriptures everyday. I think this is such a great idea! It's like my friend Dianne did, she decided that for a month she was going to cut out sugar in her diet! How hard would that be?? She even looked up the "other" names for sugar and found out that there's a ton of sugar EVERYWHERE! Like in your BBQ sauce and your spices. Anyway I so looked up to her for doing that! So I've decided that I'm going to choose one thing to do each week.
So for this week everyday I'm going to feed my husband dinner.
Yes I stink at that. We both work full time and it doesn't help that our schedules are so different. I work 30 mins away from home from 8 to 5 and he works 10 mins away from 10 to 7. So by the time he gets home I'm ready for bed and he wants to stay up until 12 or 1 because he can sleep in in the morning, which I can't do... But I'm going to do it! I will have a meal prepared for him every night this week! I'm excited!
I'm also trying to fix this problem by doing freezer meals! Adri (the girl I carpool with) and I can't wait to start! We're hoping this weekend if not next weekend.
What are you going to work on this week? Will you join me?
