Patches lost it this morning after being caught stealing more candy from Rosa"s kids. Not sure if I even posted that this has happened 3 times since Christmas, not just her. Anyway, t quickly went from minor to explosive. She didn't hurt herself but did threaten to. She stood in our yard and and yelled at the top of her lungs that she wanted to kill herself or go live with her mother in prison. Not a way to start your morning. I let her vent (cool off b/c she didn't have shoes on in the freezing rain) for about 30 minutes before I got her back in the house. This is her first really bad episode since starting Abilify. Now she is cuddling sweetly with the baby like nothing happened.

Today Alyssa turned 7. The twins do on the 6th. I will have 4 - 7 yr olds in the house! I would trade one of them for a 6 yr old. LOL

Kiera is really starting to "talk". She is babbling and screaming things at me. I can't help but laugh when she goes off on me. She is quite possibly the cutest baby ever.

Emma is visiting her Mother's for the weekend and Ella is my MIL's. Rosa is out for the day with an old friend and her kids are with their father. The house feels empty with only 8 people home.

I granted a wish on Wish Upon A Hero. It brought tears to my eyes and I felt compelled to help. A grandmother posted about her DIL needing help getting away from an abusive BF. Her son was murdered last Christmas and her DIL wasn't making good choices in relationships. The DIL called for help traveling away from him with her 2 kids. It was amazing seeing all the strangers coming together to get this family from AR to NC. We will be a pit stop for them tonight. They will stopping her to get a little sleep and eat. One member went to get her, another is riding from a nearby city to keep the original company on the way back, and many will feed them on the way or have provided gas money.

Sounds like, for the most part, you kept your cool. Hard to do sometimes, huh?
What a great thing for you to do. Helping the traveler on her way to safety.
