My name is Nikki. I am married to the love of my life and we have two beautiful little girls ages 2 and 4. I also have been blessed to be able to work from home helping others save on their gas so that I don't have to leave my girls. I love being married! We've been married for five years and going strong. We don't get as much " out of the house" quality time as we might like because we do have younger children but that's okay because we have a great time as a family and we are very blessed. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all. Please feel free to add me as a friend.

Hi! I am Darcy. I am almost 39 and I have been married for 15 years this October.
Quality time with my husband is rare but it does happen. We try to carve out as much as possible but with two kids (12/boy and 3/girl) we are very busy with their lives and activities.
Marriage is definitely challenging, especially when you add kids to the mix. We were together for five years (married for 1 1/2 of those) before we had our son. The shift in the dynamic of our relationship didn't come easy. I still think we were a little young and immature and having a child changed us in so many ways. We were not prepared for the sleepless nights, the long days and the neverending needs of a child. Obviously we got better with time but there were some significant rocky periods. We were both struggling with work and school and juggling the demands of being parents and spouses. It put a major strain on our relationship. We made it through with some help of a counselor and support of our family. We decided to have another child and since she came into our lives, things have been (mostly) wonderful. I think we were better equiped to handle a baby and we certainly didn't have the same levels of stress that we had many years before. We were also much older and confident in our ability to raise a child, heck we had one that had made it to 9 years old relatively unscathed...
How long have you been married?
We have been married for almost ONE year (5/15) & been together for just over 4 years
Do you get quality time with your husband?
Between kids, school, work, dialysis, doctors......I thought quality time was extinct!
Children at home?
We have a 6 y/o daughter (her bio dad is MIA since she was 6 mos old...hubby is her DADDY in every sense of the word! :o)
Can you share a little about your marriage/household
There's really not much to tell...I am a temp...on an assignment for the next year (maybe longer - fingers crossed!) & I'm the sole support for our home. I cook, clean, walk 2 dogs (we have a cat too...but she doesnt' like the leash), & hubby helps our daughter with her school work & cooks/cleans when he can. He was diagnosed with ESRD (kidney failure) just a couple of months ago & is on dialysis 3x a week. In the evenings, we try to watch a movie or a show on TV...but it doesn't always work out. We never end a phone call with out telling each other "I love you"
