Spring has sprung!

Our garden is Tilled, and the Chicks are tucked away in a cage in the bathroom waiting for bigger warmer feathers!
How is spring already here?

I got a New washer for clothing, its a Tub from farm and fleet LOL and I plan to buy a wash board from to make it complete...

So excite for the summer ahead, the planting and saving of food, the building of our chicken coop and MAYBE the loss of a Fridge...(we will see LOL)...Camping and fires with home cooked food from the cast iron skillet!!! I can smell the fresh air country air and bacon now!!

We have a birth plan

As of late we have been thinking strongly of my births.

My first was in a Hospital, My second was in a hotel room with a Midwife (If you MUST know why the can IM or e-mail me)

Now, I just feel that My Husband and I are going to go unassisted.
I know this is a touchy subject for many...even for me, since I feel so strongly about it....I feel it is the best choice for me and the best choice for My baby.

I also feel it is the best choice for my family....I Have done the research, thought this through long and hard (Yeah for a LONG time...since I was Pregnant with my second child...over two years ago now.)

I am Vary excited about my choice, yet sadly can not tell my whole family since they tend to be fear mongers (And I mean the pop off with crazy stuff to...not just the "what ifs").
I saddens my husband and I to keep this a secret but since most of them seemed offended that I chose to forgo the Epidural last time...they wouldn't take to this well.

Anyways, I just thought I would post this...since the pregnancy is such a Big part of My life at this point.

(For those who would like more information on UC is a great place to start)
