7 Quick Takes Vol.10

I took a break last week from my Quick Takes but alas writing is therapy and since I can't afford a therapist I turn to Quick takes! Thanks Jen @ Conversion Diary for hosting!


Well it's been a tough week but Thanks be to God I think for right now I am over the hardest part since the miscarriage. I have kept so busy with the kids,life,etc.. that I have a lot more peace. I have to go in today and get some blood work done to make sure my levels are back to zero. Hopefully they are and my Body has healed itself. I know my heart will take a long time to heal but like I said before God has given me this heartache but through the prayers and help of others he has given me acceptance and a lot of peace. Thanks be to God for that!

Well before everything happened I had been working on an article about my experiences with Cloth Diapering (thus far) and that's coming to a blog near you. I have to admit this has become a small obsession of mine. Researching,buying,using,etc... I didn't realize what a world there is out there solely dedicated to Cloth Diapering. I have to say I couldn't have picked a better time to start,it has really kept my mind going,to say the least. Any who check it out if you get a chance I will have some promo codes for 5.00-10.00 off some of my favorite CD stores that don't just sell Cloth Diapers but all sorts of AMAZING products to help mommy's life . So make sure and check back for that as well as maybe even possibly a giveaway ;)
Isn't this the cutest cloth diapered baby???

Well we got our first snowfall of the year. It was more like a dusting and quite pathetic to be honest with you,it had melted by 10am however the kids very so excited. It was a heck of an argument explaining to them *WHY* they couldn't go outside and play considering everything was all muddy and soggy..blah..oh well can't complain it's been a mild fall.
Green Tomatoes everywhere!!!!
My neighbor gave us a wheelbarrow full of Green Tomatoes. Now we already tried frying them which made them DELICIOUS but our arteries can take so much Fried green tomatoes so do any of you have any ideas or recipes you can share so we can put these little puppies to good use.
My friend posted this on facebook. Isn't it neat?

So with Thanksgiving Around the corner do any of you have any favorite recipes you just can't live without that send the usual fixings for Thanksgiving outside the box? One of my absolute favorites that tweeks a favorite is my Mother in Law's Sausage Turkey Stuffing. That stuff is so good it's usually the first thing we run out of! I know after trying that little number I was never able to go back to "regular stuffing again" Check out my Recipe section in the next week so you can get the recipe for yourself and fall in loooove with stuffing all over again along with some other holiday favorites:)

Not to beat a dead horse since It's pretty much all I've seen on the blogosphere since it's announcing but Wow,Could people be jerkier to the Duggar's for announcing their newest pregnancy. I think it hit an even more sour note(people's reactions)due to my recent miscarriage. Seriously, the amount of kids this couple have is between them and God and to be honest with you,those kids are much better behaved than the kids of most couples I know that maybe have 1 or 2. I don't know,just hit a raw nerve but God bless them for following through on their faith and their belief of procreation. You know,when I first found out I was pregnant I have to say I was nervous about telling people because I was *stupidly* worried about their reaction since I was coming dangerously close if not stepping over that "appropriate child ratio line" and when the miscarriage began and I knew I needed prayers I just started asking everyone for prayers and didn't care what people thought and well now,I have a little Angel in heaven. This just comes to show you we need to stand strong in what we believe in,because everything that is given to us can be taken away very quickly. Life is a gift, being a parent is a gift! God is the only architect in our plans,we just have to have faith!
Behold the birds of the air, for they neither sow, nor do they reap, nor gather into barns: and your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are not you of much more value than they? -Mathew 6:26

Have an AMaZING weekend and week everyone!!!!
God bless!

We buried our first son Philip in 2007, and I completely understand what you are going through. May I suggest Naming the Child by my good friend Jenny Schroedel? My husband and I contributed to the book, and it might be helpful to you as you process everything.

Also, know that grieving isn't a very linear process. You may feel fine some days, and there will be days when the tide takes you under. That is normal. And then you might go a long time and feel okay, and then suddenly, bam, you're back in the trenches of sadness again. That okay too.

Please feel free to e-mail me off site---I've been where you are and am happy to listen.

keeping you in my heart as you deal with everything associate with the miscarriage. i actually planned on not announcing my pregnancy with my son publicly until i was three months along because i was so terrified of miscarrying.

and i totally agree -- people are being really nasty about the duggar's announcement that they're expecting #20. the number of kids they choose to have is between them and God. i can understand those who are concerned because of josie being born early due to michelle's preeclampsia but she's under the care of a high-risk doctor for that.
