Don't eat the reindeer!

Remember Don't Eat Pete?

Well, check out Don't eat the reindeer!

Postpartum depression

Do you or someone that you know suffer from Postpartum depression?

Ok, that sounds like one of THOSE commercials.

I just recently had our 4th baby. Hold on...
Meghan, Connor, Reagan and Kennedy- Yep, that's 4.

Sometimes I lose track. haha

I have always heard women talking about postpartum depression but never really experienced the "baby blues". Well, that is until baby number 4.

2-3 weeks after having Kennedy I started feeling rather blahh...
I didn't want to eat.
I was not sleeping.
I was moody.

 Yeah, postpartum depression had come to pay me a little visit. There were a couple of times where I told my husband that I had completely SHUT DOWN.
I was not content anymore.
I had a Eh, whatever type of attitude towards everything.

It was just NOT ME!

While my case was very mild and controlled without medications, I know that there are some out there that need the meds. 

Have you ever suffered from postpartum depression or any other type of depression?
How do you handle it?

Please know that there is depression help out there.
Maybe you need to search through the depression medication list?
Maybe you can control it with prayer?
Friends, Family? Maybe they can help you cope.

Control it and do not let IT control YOU!

Are you prepared for an emergency?

What would you do if an emergency came up RIGHT NOW.
Well, after you panic and run around like a mad woman, that is.
Surely I am not the only person to do that, right??

What I mean is...

Are you prepared? (whether it be a storm, hurricane, flood, fire or other emergency)

How is your food storage looking?
Do you even have food stored up?

I'll be honest. At this moment, we are NOT prepared for an emergency.
This is something that I would like to work on.
I will just pray that it's not too late and that I still have time to actually work on it.

Emergency preparedness is very important. Everyone should take not and GET PREPARED if they are not already.

Not sure where to start?

When I think of dried foods my mind often wanders off to the grocery store. I think about all of the times I walked past those dried bananas hanging on the shelf.

I don't really think about other dried foods but there are SO MANY available.

Do you purchase  freeze dried foods? For what purpose?

Do you buy them just because you like to eat them or do you buy them in case an emergency comes up?

I am sad to say that I have not prepared my family in case an emergency comes up.
I really should start thinking about doing this.

You never know when something will come up.

Check out Prepare Wise for an assortment of freeze dried foods.

Ah, Do you remember when you first found out that you were pregnant? The things that came across your mind were: what doctor should I choose, how much weight will I gain, which brand of prenatal vitamin is best...

6 months into the pregnancy other things pop into your mind . . .
