- 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.

When I went to bed last night I just couldn't get my mind to shut down and allow me to get to bed at a decent time. I set my alarm to get the kids up and ready for school, I was really going to try and have a less hectic morning. Positive thinking, right?
Jerad had to go to work early this morning, he was trying to sneak out quietly beings all four kids and myself were sleeping. In the middle of a really wonderful dream that involved Johnny Depp (hot!), I heard an extremely loud alarm going off. Then I hear a man's voice talking to my husband. I realized Jerad was setting the alarm system and accidentally hit the 'panic' button. We have the system where a person comes on the intercom and talks to you. He was asking what our password was, Jerad drew a blank. I was yelling from upstairs what the password was while hubby is trying to relay the correct word. After a couple tries the man said, "Okay sir have a nice day". Jerad collected his work stuff and left to work. I thought thank god the kids didn't wake up, I thought I have one more hour until MY quieter alarm goes off. I was WRONG! Within a couple of minutes of him leaving I heard the loudest banging on my door. I flew out of bed, trying to avoid stepping on kids that had snuck in my room with their pillow and blankets. I ran downstairs, at this point Jordan woke up and was right behind me. I opened the door and there was nobody there. What the hell? They just barely knocked...where did they go? I shut the door. I stood there puzzled standing by the door, BANG, BANG, BANG. The loud knocking again. I ran to the window and looked through the blinds. I saw a man waving at me to open the door... IT WAS A POLICE OFFICER! Jordan at this point was freaking out, not knowing it was a cop and when his dad isn't here he will go to the end of the earth to protect me and his siblings. He had ran up and got his air soft gun. As I opened the door, here comes Jordan with his plastic gun. The cop seen him and yelled at him to stop, he thought it was real. I went outside and asked what was going on. He said the alarm system panic went off and the man claiming to be your husband gave the wrong password. I said, "Well I'm the one that told him the password, I know it's right"....He asked me for my ID...I went to get it and he stopped me and said, "No, have one of your kids get it, you have to stay right here". As I was waiting I was looking around in the dark and noticed there was a plain clothed officer on the side of my house, another officer on the other side and one in back... we were surrounded. He said he couldn't leave without coming in my house, I always crack jokes.. I started to say, "Sure you can come in but let me go hide my bong first"... I thought I better not press my luck, so I didn't say anything. He checked out the house and then finally left. I called Jerad at work and asked him what password he said. He said, "I couldn't hear you screaming so I thought you said _____. I thought holy shit, it was like if my password would've been 'day'.. he told them 'night'. Completely wrong, no wonder they sent the police. Jordan has always said since we got this alarm system, "I bet this thing doesn't even work"...well he found out it does!
