About Me

My photo
I am a SAHM of 3 and a wife of one. I started a blog to just bitch about life and now our youngest son is very sick I want to hear from other families going thru this and support eachother. He has SBS secondary to NEC with only 50 cm proximal jejunum and a 3 cm segment of terminal ileum. He is TPN dependent. He is a tough little 6 lb, 3 month old! Keeping my mind from turning to mush, Scentsy was introduced to me and I'm very thankful. The wonderful people in this community has changed my life. Even so, chaos in our house is a daily adventure. Some days, alright most days.. I take things minute by minute. To get through this bumpy road called 'life' I need my husband Jerad and my kids, my son Jordan 15, and my daughter Jaycee who is 11, and my son Jaxon is 3 months...I say it how it is... So I will say this.... "If you don't like what you are reading, you have the choice to leave my page. Nice, bitchy, raging lunitic, loving.. that's me! I admit I swear like a sailor, I may have different religious beliefs, I hate brussel sprouts with a passion.. these are all ways to describe ME.. I love making new friends but I will not 'pretend' to be someone I'm not just for their sake.

Halloween... which day to trick or treat?

Now that the official Halloween day is over, I ask you all the question.... Which day do you think was the right day to trick or treat?  Halloween was on Sunday, not Saturday... but alot of people felt they should go out on Saturday.  I have heard different reasoning's... One being sunday was a school/work night... My argument with this would be, how many times has your daughter's dance recital, your son's karate class, or even better their own school has events and recitals on a school/work nights.  So that excuse is bullshit.  As for religion?  To each his own... BUT... being in the state of Utah, we had the leaders of our state taking votes on to officially change 'trick or treating' to saturday.  I am outraged when I hear this.  For one simple reason.... We are not ALL MORMONS!  If your religion comes into play and you feel you should not be out celebrating, then by all means take your kids to pumpkin patches, corn maze, etc. the other six days of the week.  There are alot of events the whole month of October.  Why should everyone else HAVE to abide by rules that shouldn't apply.  It drives me nuts for the fact that when halloween next year lands on monday evening, there will not be such a huge debate on what night to go out and pick up candy.  This is not to bash Mormon's either, they have their reasons, I have mine.  I'm not MAKING them convert to my beliefs, don't make the rest of us convert to yours.  Nobody chose halloween to land on sunday this year....SHIT HAPPENS.... make the necessary accommodations to your lifestyle and deal with it.  Different topic I know... But if it was mommy/daughter day at school and there were two gay men raising this daughter, I can't imagine the LDS church going to bat for that man that he should be allowed.  I would say to him, GO.. you have every right to be there, but if he didn't feel comfortable for any reason, and it is HIS choice to not attend, I don't think he would be ranting and raving at the capitol building to cancel mommy/daughter day.  Everyone doesn't have to agree with ones lifestyles, but come on people... halloween?  We took our kids on sunday and we had house after house tell us, "Good for you" to go out on sunday, they didn't dare because of what the neighbors would think... Really?  It was halloween ON SUNDAY! Get over it!


  1. Halloween was sunday lol, can't change a holiday silly beans :D.

  2. It pisses me off that any govenrment has a hand in how I celebrate a holiday. We just had the same issue here. I live on the Bible Belt.
    BTW, I just wrote a similar post.

  3. We did ours on sunday, wed do it if it was sunday, monday, tuesdays etc.... You adapt not try and change everyghing around

  4. Here in Cincinnati most communities did the trick or treating on Sunday. The more rural communities did it on Saturday for some reason. Like you said in your post, no one is going to cause a stink when Halloween is on Monday next year.
