Both my pregnancies I lost about 15 pounds before gaining any weight due to my stopping drinking. I quit drinking for good nearly 2 years ago now. I lost about 25 pounds and my mother refuses to believe it's from stopping drinking.

Great comment. Saved it for future reference. My husband and I decided a couple months ago to only buy fresh beef, cheese, fruits, veggies, and dairy from the grocery store. Fortunately most of that is locally grown as we are pretty rural. The kids are eating those foods with us, but still have the occasional bread or pasta. We went to an event at Church last weekend and I ate some pasta salad and my stomach was in shambles all week like it used to be chronically before my change in diet. Won't be eating that again. Everyone has much more energy overall and our house has never been so peaceful. I believe the change in diet has also led to a positive change in behavior with my 2 young children. Even the dogs are eating real food instead of the kibble, and it's as if their inner wolves are coming out. They're much more alert and active. We have a fruit and veggie garden, but I'd like to set up a greenhouse to grow year round. We currently have 7 hens and a rooster. We're also looking into getting a cow and calf next year for dairy and eventually beef. My goal is to never set foot in a grocery store again within the next couple of years. Same goes for the doctors office. The kids have never been other than for checkups as infants. And my husband and I haven't gone since we left our own pediatricians, with the exception of my prenatal visits and deliveries. We're also homeschooling the kids, and my husband is self employed. Sooo close to never having to leave our house again.

Heads up, eBay changed the prices for their stores awhile ago. Never notified anyone. You might be overpaying if you never caught the changes. Might wanna take a look.

Also if you have an eBay STORE, look into that!! They added store options awhile back with reduced rates. We've been paying 300$ a month for a store that should have been costing us 60$ a month with their changes, and they never notified us.

Unfortunately women have been told that raising children is not a valuable thing to do with their time. Fucking feminism.

Spot on. The devil is really busy. And clever. I learned a hard lesson this past school year sending my oldest to kindergarten, and I will not subject my youngest to the public school system or the degenerates teaching at and attending the schools. I have a lot of damage to undo with my oldest. It breaks my heart that her childlike innocence is basically gone now after her year at school.

We found a local group to meet up with a couple times a week for socialization. We're actually "unschooling" which is much more relaxed than homeschooling, but still legal where we live. We run a business from home and homestead so that'll be a large part of what we do daily. We're looking into curriculum from different free sites like Kahn and Easy Peasy. And getting some workbooks for math and reading. Honestly almost any every day activity counts as learning too in some way if you take a little extra time or effort to explain things to your littles as you do them. Best of luck to you!

Yeah we made the mistake of putting our oldest in kindergarten at the public school last year. We're homeschooling now and loving it.

Praying for you and your wife. Nobody should lose a child. I'm happy you got to know him before he went to Heaven.

Company is only offering the raise knowing that it will be short term, as the jabbed will continue dropping like flies.

"May 2021: Following a biology class during which she came to the realization that she would never be able to feed her baby, Chloe said that she stopped taking testosterone injections"

I don't have the words for this kind of stupidity.

We got a small flock last spring, 3 hens and a rooster. We didn't take the eggs for a few days recently, and one of the hens has been laying on them for several days now. Hoping to get some baby chicks in the next couple of weeks.

That's awesome! I quit drinking November 2020 and I only wish I had done it sooner. Keep it up!
