I'm a happily married mother of three. I just wanted a place to voice my opinion and let others voice theirs.

Hello Everyone I’m Back

Well I just wanted to say hello to the people who continued to follow even through the long period of not posting.  I want to thank my mother-in-law for writing up a couple of the more recent posts to try and get my blog going again.  Well as for my family, my brother and both of my sisters have got the all clear thank god.  As for me the Dr. told me that more than likely the nodules that I have are bi-nine, from what he says the more you have the less chance it can be cancer.  I will still be going to surgery to have my thyroid and the nodules removed in Feb.  Anyways I will be back posting up my opinions for anyone who cares real soon now.  Thank you all for continuing to follow my blog.


Cancer in the family

Well my sister had surgery and went through radiation and is doing great.  My brother is ok for now.  I just heard the other day that my other sister from California has breast cancer, they are going to remove her breast but they aren’t sure that it is going to be enough.  She said that if they aren’t able to remove all of the cancer after taking her breast then she isn’t going to to continue treatment.  As for myself I just found out that I have quite a few nodules on my thyroid, so I am waiting on my labs and going to see a cancer specialist.  I will update as soon as I know more.

Well they said that they got 99+% out so not she has to go through radiation. As for my brother, he went through surgery again and they said that if they find anymore spots on his bladder they will have to remove his bladder completely. My brother and sister are way too young for this.

Going to the Dr. today to find out what kind of cancer my sister has. Wish her luck.

Right now I am going through some tough times. My brother was diagnosed with bladder cancer. He started chemo after the surgery then they had to stop chemo because they found 3 more spots. He had surgery again and now they say if they find anymore spots they are going to have to remove his bladder all together. My sister just had her thyroid removed because they found a tumor and the Dr. called two days ago, his exact words were “It’s killer cancer” my sister asks “what kind of cancer is it?” Dr. “well discuss that on the 18th” WTF is that? Drs suck, that is bull shit. Why would they worry you like that if they cannot even discuss it? Why couldn’t he  have just made an apt. rather than tell us something like that? Now it’s just worry, worry, worry until we can go talk to these bastards to see what the hell is going on.

Anyways that was a venting session. I flew out here to Reno to stay with my sister and take care of her, in a week I will be headed to Cali to help my brother then back out to Reno before I head back home. Wish my family luck through there hard times. Thanks for reading my venting session. Sorry my writing sucks but my head is too full to care about how I write right now. I’ll post updates on my brother and sister for anyone interested.

Parents beware of a childrens online game called Movie Star Planet!

I put the site link below. Parent’s if your children are playing on this game I would highly suggest that you log into your child’s account and read their messages, their archives, watch the movies they are watching and making in this kids game. I would bet you that most of these so called children are adult men and women who deserve to be gave to the public for disposal.

Movie Theatre

Movie Theatures are a Rip off.Have any of you been to the movie theatre lately? OMG me and my partner took our daughter to see Hansel and Gretel 3D at the Harkins theatre by the Superstition Mall. We went on a Saturday around 1 in the afternoon. It still costed nearly $50.00 just for us to get in, then another $50 for 2 med. soda’s 1 med. pop corn and a salted pretzel.  Now I don’t know about you but I think this is a rip off. It’s no wonder the poor stay poor, it’s because everyone puts a higher price on everything so they can make even more money. Are there any people left in the world that believe in giving people a fair price just because it’s the humane thing to do? If there are I sure don’t know of any. Can you believe that they charge $5.00 for a medium fountain drink. Do you know that it only costs them cents for that fountain drink and a few more cents for the cap. So why are there prices so outrageous? And what really pisses me off is that they play commercials. If you say that the movie is going to start at 1:30 then I don’t expect to have to watch them promote all the other movies coming out. I could have rented a movie, got all movie snacks and drinks for under $10.00 and I could fast forward through all the shit I don’t want to watch.

I am a working mother who doesn’t’ receive help with child support and when I make a few extra dollars I want nothing more than to treat my children because they really don’t have much compared to other kids. Why does treating my children have to cost an arm and a leg? It doesn’t, the reason it does is because people live off of selfishness and greed now. No wonder our world is going to shit!

Child abuse

Child abuse.

This is one of my daughters first posts!

Sandy Hook.

Victims of Bullying

My 10 year old daughter came home the other day and we were playing and chatting about her day at the mall when out of the blue she say’s “Mommy I want to make a blog because bullying is getting bad, there are allot of kids killing themselves over bullying.’ Oh my god at that moment I felt so proud that my 10 year old daughter even knew how bad bullying was let alone wanting to try and do something about it. She want’s to blog and start a group at school about bullying. At that moment I felt as though I have passed on to my morals and good heart to my children and I have taught them that they can make a difference no matter who you are. Below is two videos, one is a song that my daughter showed me on youtube about how bullying has made her a stronger person and how she had to set the bar higher for herself because of bullying and eventually she was stronger than the one’s who bullied her and now she is laughing at them. It is an inspiring song that I hope may help others who are bullied to believe in themselves and to work harder so in the end you are the one who comes out on top.

This next video is about children who were bullied to death and if you have a heart at all then you will cry but it is better to feel then to ignore.

Important Facts

child abuseI read this article that has a list of things you can do instead of hurting a child and that cracks me up because if you CAN hurt a child then you are screwed up in the head and should seek help the minute you notice you are beginning to lose patients. If you know you are not good with children then don’t have them and if you accidentally get pregnant then there is something called adoption. I will continue to add facts as I come across them.

I have three children so I know how hard it is to be a 24/7 parent, however hitting/yelling is never the answer, all hitting/yelling does is screw the child up and makes your job as a parent harder. If you treat everyone including your children the way you want them to behave and treat others then your children act like you and treat others as you do. Kids are like little parrots, monkey see monkey do, therefore if your children are uncontrollable or are just brats then take a hard look in the mirror because these children are just mimicking their parents. Maybe we should start beating the parents for not doing there job correctly. It’s really not that hard to act the way you want to be treated and the way you want your children to act and behave towards others.

Did you know that more than 5 children die everyday as a result of child abuse?
Approximately 80% of children who die as a result of child abuse are under 4 years old.
It’s estimated that 50 to 60% of fatalities due to maltreatment are not recorded as such on death certificates.
About 30% of abused/neglected children will abuse their own children later in life.
84% of inmates were abused as children.
Over 80% of children abused are abused by someone they know (parent, caregiver, neighbor, close family friend, ect.)

Senior Drivers

Fuck you too! Get off the road you old fart before the next thing you hit is a child.

I have been looking up car accident statistics for about a week and I find that this is a huge problem not only in Arizona but everywhere. Since there are so many baby boomers the problem is only going to get worse. I have seen a few articles on people saying that we should also be looking at teen drivers, claiming that teen drivers cause as many accidents as senior drivers, however in my search through the statistics that is not true. So if this is such a problem why isn’t anything being done about it? According to the Arizona DOT by the year 2030, older drivers are expected to account for 18.9% of all vehicles driven (HOW FUCKING SCARY IS THIS?)

So I’m sitting in the DMV today for a duplicate license (because some ass hole stole my wallet on X-mas eve, a story for another time.) When I notice this man who had to be at least 90 years old, couldn’t walk without holding onto the counters and his whole body shaking like a leaf. I’m listening to them talk and realize that this man was there to get his license. I watched as he works his way through people (clinging to people and counters as he went so as not to fall). Now this old man had to do an eye test lol, the second he got there he say’s “my eye’s are great” ha,ha well just because his eyes are great doesn’t mean he could react fast enough to any given situation, and as bad as he shakes I’m surprised he could keep the wheel straight. This old mans reflexes were shot and the fact that he was shaking uncontrollable should have been a sign that he doesn’t need his license. Low and behold this old man walked out of the DMV with his new license. HOW?

I live in Arizona, and anyone who lives here will tell you that the snowbirds are dangerous, stupid drivers. Most snowbirds are retiree’s and once snowbird season comes, watch out. These old people will turn down the wrong side of the road, the wrong side of the freeway, they will drive on and off the sidewalks, they pull out in front of you when you are doing 60 mph then they go 40 mph. Now come on you cannot tell me that the death rate for car accidents doesn’t go up when these snowbirds come our way.

This article has nothing to do with Arizona, however it does have to do with senior citizens driving. There is some great information in this article for those of you who have parents that should no longer be driving.

Sorry this is just a bitch post, if I cannot use my blog to talk about the things that bother me that why have it?

Here are links to some statistics and articles on senior drivers

Church, to go or not to go?

ChurchGrowing up I was raised as a Christian, I went to church every weekend and went to bible study on weekdays. Since growing up and coming out “so to speak” I have realized that most people in church, no matter their religion are hypocrites. How could you preach about how God love’s you and how God is all forgiving, then turn around and say that if you are gay, or if you are black or if you don’t abide by the “rules” of the bible you are going to hell. I went to this church the other day and just happened to listen to the class that was going on, the lady was telling children that they would go to hell if they didn’t abide by gods wish’s. I am sorry but if someone ever told that to one of my children I would beat the crap out of them. I do believe in a higher power but I do not believe that you will go to hell if you mess up or if you like that same sex or if you are a different color.

Church goers are always talking about helping others but what they really mean is “well help you as long as you attend our services and get brainwashed like the rest of them. Sorry people but I carry my own belief’s and I believe that everyone else should as well. So what if I don’t believe in your religion, I do believe. I think that as long as your heart is in the rite place then there’s your church, it’s better than what you will get from going to church.
