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.
