What have I done!?

I don't know what on earth has possessed me to start a blog. I really have enough to do in a day without enhancing the cyber time-suck factor.
I'm struck many days by how simple my life used to be. I used to be able to leave the house in 10 minutes from shower to car. Now it takes me about an hour to execute a departure and I probably haven't fit in a shower in several days if I were honest. We do some interesting things though so, may as well give blogging about it a crack :)
I'm a purist really. I like to grow our own food, cook from scratch, I've taken up canning??!!?!? (who woulda thought). I am a rabid meal planner, I'm very cheap, and I created a chore chart for myself in hopes that in a week each part of the house will be cleaned once. That said I should really be vacuuming.
We have 3 kids ages 5, 4, and 1, and live on a little piece of heaven.
We currently raise chickens.

We have two Newfoundland dogs
One of whom is a perfect (Bert),

one of whom is a bit of a nut (Cleo).

We also have a Great Pyrenees/Lab cross puppy...Oliver.

We plan to raise cashmere goats come the spring, and I hope that doesn't mean I'll never see my uncle again. I'm already treading on thin ice with the chickens...
There are days when I want to pull my hair out, but I really have no tangible thing to complain about.
See...what was I thinking starting a blog???
oh, and I don't know how to hyperlink things yet, but the info is interesting :)
