All things NieNie

Recommended Posts

Since the holidays are coming, I'm sure there will be more to discuss regarding NieNie, so I thought I'd start a general NieNie thread. I think we had one long, long ago in the dark ages. I can do a recap if necessary.

Anyway, as of today's post on her Instagram, she has miscarried. Although her pregnancies have been discouraged AFAIK, I do feel sad for her today.

I feel bad for NieNie. As much as she pissed off me in the past with some of the shit she has said about her kids and pimping of Charlotte, I think she loves and enjoys her kids. I feel for anyone who has had a miscarriage.

I do find a bit strange, that she announced her miscarriage on IG. I think she will take some time off from doing speaking gigs.

She briefly blogged about the miscarriage

nieniedialogues.blogspot.com/2014/10/heartbeat.html

Last Thursday, Mr. Nielson and I went in for a check up and to hear our baby's heartbeat.

There wasn't one.

It was heartbreaking.

I have had so many thoughts and so much heartache.

I spent the weekend in the hospital where I was given a picc line access

for some dehydration problems, and for my d&c (which I had on Monday).

I am home and doing just fine. I feel emotional, but alive.

I will be back to writing on Monday.

Thank you for your love and support.

I'm no stranger to pain and sadness, and it certainly never gets easier.

But I have the tools to deal with this, and this too shall pass.

Much love to all.

-Nie

Does anyone here follow Nienie anymore?  I had stopped reading her blog (well, I'd really stopped reading blogs pretty much in general) but was curious the other day.  They are trying to sell the Fox Hill house in Provo and have moved to Christian's family ranch in New Mexico.  The GOMI thread makes it sound pretty clear that this was for financial reasons, although I don't think any of them have any sort of insider info other than what sort of loans are still out on the house.

Yeah, she's in my blog feed reader app thing. TIL that she is homeschooling her kids.

Uh huh.

Still following her.  They sold Fox Hill for quite a bit of money and her blog posts seem to suggest that there were other reasons they left - there seem to be a lot of references to sin and things like that - more often than usual.  I also think the switch to homeschooling seemed sudden as the older girls seem really social and engaged with their friends.

 

It will be very interesting to see how the new ranch house turns out - I'm sure it will be grand. She hinted today she may be done blogging.

I casually follow the NieNie blog, and have been truly perplexed about their decision making for the past year. They sold their "forever home" last year, and moved to Christian's Nie-Free sanctuary in New Mexico, where he plays with cows for weeks at a time. They've been making cryptic remarks about the wonderful new house they plan to build on a special spot on the ranch land ever since (including showing pictures of the spot in blog posts), and now suddenly, as of today, she's saying that maybe they won't be living in NM long-term either. 

I have to assume that whomever owns the property (supposedly a relative of Christian's, I think) has given them an ultimatum of some sort, and they don't feel quite certain about building there after all. The decision to leave Provo in the first place is mysterious and seems totally at odds with anything that anyone in the family actually wanted or needed, yet she insists they won't be returning to Provo anytime soon either. (Despite her dad apparently asking them to consider it repeatedly, which suggests that there truly isn't anything holding the Nielsons to New Mexico or that Ranch.) The whole thing just seems strange and kind of dark, almost as if they are trying to get away from something. She seems miserable homeschooling the kids (a practical necessity after what appeared to be a false start for most of the kids at the beginning of the school year), and constantly laments the loss of her breezy days at home alone with Lottie. 

Recently, I got the distinct impression from the road trip posts that she's got her sights set on moving to the Carolinas. That would be suitably shocking to keep the attention of her fans, but would put her even further away from her true powerbase in Utah. None of it makes any sense (nor is it meant to; Stephanie is the original Vague Poster), but I also don't follow her avidly enough to have caught any subtleties or nuances.

The move to NC is official. I think there was drama between NieNie and Christian's family regarding the New Mexico ranch. I still wonder why they left Provo and some online speculation is that money have played a factor. Some people on GOMI speculated that NieNie probably didn't trust Christian to be alone working in NM. I can see that scenario and there is something shady about Christian. I wasn't surprised that NieNie started homeschooling in NM, some school districts here in NM crack down heavily on too many unexcused absences and parents get sent to court and and get fined. NieNie and Christian seemed to have gotten away with that back in Utah.

I don't see them lasting long in NC. I say two years tops. I see them moving back to Mesa, AZ where there is a big enough Mormon culture for Nie and some of her fans are there.

NieNie are still in Harlow House.

They are settled, the children go to school but they don't like using the school bus (it stinks), especially the girls.

Nie posts picturest of the land where their big future customized house will be. What a pity ruin a wood like that for a house...

They opened gifts for Chistmas, violin+ lesson a new motorbike, a hedgehog (what a present, poor animal, then it will finish as the "pink cat" Nie took home from a shelter or the dog will think about it ...), hope chest, legos...and so on. And no one is working. I'm amazed.

I really want to be part of their secrets :P

What town or nearby city does NieNie live? I thought it was outside of Charlotte. If so, the length of time it takes to get to temple in SC seems to be exaggerated.

      Peanut was watching me change the newspaper in her cage earlier. She’s currently eating said newspaper. Because reasons.

      I am beyond angry at Mr. Briefly's mother. My daughter posted a comment on her own facebook page that discussed parellels between nazi Germany and what is happening today as far as immigrants, detention camps, etc. My MIL left one of the rudest, meanest things I have ever seen. She told me daughter not to post things like that on her own page, she said horrible things. I just posed a long comment to my MIL, and told her that she has destroyed her relationship with her granddaughter and probably any hope of one in the future. My daughter is so hurt, and she is angry. And so am I. I try to be forgiving, but I'm not really inclined to forgive this one. Maybe I will be, but my daughter probably won't ever forgive her for this one. OK, rant over - and thank you for listening.

      Did another photo shoot this morning (strictly trade for prints, because it's a fun hobby), this one for Paul McCartney/Another Day.  one of those incredibly pretty little songs that hides just devastating lyrics behind beautiful harmony:  As she posts another letter to the sound of five People gather 'round her and she finds it hard to stay alive It's just another day.  There's a furniture shop near where I live that sells second hand and "unique" furniture/decor.  They had a neat little vanity someone built out of a Singer sewing machine table so we did the photos there, trying to convey the world weariness of the lyrics in a single photo.  It felt good.  We'll see how the prints turn out.
      It always surprises me how well Neptune and I work in these kinds of situations.  We'd had one conversation about this shoot, ten days or a couple weeks ago.  A few key words, couple props that he specifically wanted, not much else.  We walked into the building and started setting up without needing to really talk very much.  Just feels easy and in sync in a really comfortable way.

      I went to get a snack and ran into someone someone who asked if I went outside for the two fire drills today. What fire drills? This is the third time fire alarms went off everywhere in a building except where I was. Why does this keep happening to me?

      Has anybody else had issues with the latest Windows update?  Windows 10 has screwed up a lot of computers, mine included. Apparently,.Microsoft knew that it was going to cause problems and released it anyway. Now they talk like they are working on a problem.  OK, so I guess they are going to pay for the repairs to my laptop since I had to take it in to be fixed?  Due to their stupidity in releasing a known problem and not having a patch ready, but still they should not have released it knowing it was going to do this!!

      Peanut likes sitting on her hidey-house! She’s eating a bit of honeydew melon which the pigs have never had before (although they have had watermelon). 

      There is still a bit of an abscess left; it’s reduced a bit in size but not completely. Our nearest vet clinic is mainly cat/dog related although the woman we’ve been seeing does have an interest/knowledge about small animals. We’re going to contact another clinic who are an exotics centre; our vet said that she could do a slightly more invasive procedure but that it’d be best if we took Peanut to a specialist place. 
      The vet also said today that we can reunite her with Cinnamon and Grace; there was no evidence of a bite mark but we’ll still have to be careful because of where the abscess is. The main reason we kept her separate was so she could recover post-sedation when the drainage site needed to properly heal. 
      I’m not worried about her health-wise in any major sense, but it’ll be a relief when it’s dealt with!

      Received news (from my dermatologist) that I tested positive for ANA, which indicates I have some type of auto-immune problem. But I can't see a rheumatologist until my primary care refers me, and I don't have an appointment with primary care until the 28th. And who knows how long it's going to take me to get into a specialist. So now I just get to sit around thinking about what's potentially wrong with me and being scared shitless about it.

      The substitute pastor dislikes me and my candor and forthrightness. As he was giving pre-worship announcements, I needed to blow my nose. Did it so quietly! — but he interrupted himself with “gesundheit!” — and I felt embarrassed and in retaliation rolled my eyes or scowled every time he looked my way during sermon. Also held subsequent nose-clearings for when HE spoke during service. It felt snarky--right at first, now I’m just mad that these patriarchal bozos foul up the peace of music and hymns and prayers with their attitudes and actions. Thanks to FJ for providing this little forum-ette. I feel better for venting.
