Here I am

Hi. My name is Alane & I'm a stay at home mom. I have 3 kids. Sam just turned 5 & my twins, Adah & Eli will be 4 in August. They are just 14 months apart. My hubby, Chris, and I wanted to have our kids close in age but hadn't planned on the 2-for-1 special. They are all wonderful blessings from God but they are also all high energy, emotional, & strong willed.
I am outnumbered.
And my husband is working 3 hours away from home so we only see him on the weekends. And I have depression. I'm on meds & they help but my environment of late is pushing me over the edge.
Thus the blog.
I want to see if posting my daily experiences will keep me from loosing my mind. Don't get me wrong, I love my kids desperately, but I am going to end up in a padded room if I don't get some relief soon. I thought my life was hard before my hubby worked so far away - HA! Then we added part time single parenting & now we are trying to sell the house & I have the pressure of keeping a clean house on top of it.
Are you getting the picture?
So here I am, with all my faults. Please don't judge me, I really am a good Mom most of the time, I'm just in a hard stage of life at the moment. I tend to be sarcastic. I end up putting a funny spin on the daily events of life much of the time. But see through the screen of sarcasm - I am hurting.
I don't know how many people will read this but if you do & you love the Lord please pray for me. And if you let me know how I can do so I would love to pray for you too.

Hey grrrl! I've now subscribed to your blog, so keep it rolling. I will definitely be praying for you guys and the rugrats.

You are selling your house? Where are you moving? Houston is calling your name, baby!

Luv - your cousin in H-Town.
