Tales of a Misguided Mommy

Patty better love those fucking notebooks.

 A few weeks back I went to Target to get myself a couple new notebooks.  I always keep one in my car and one in my purse.  I bought these:

After that I was reading Patty's blog and she had written a post about her notebook, and that she needed a new one.

 

This was her notebook:

I was horrified.  HORRIFIED.  What kind of notebook is that?  I had a near panic attack thinking that Patty needed a new notebook and that Patty herself might go buy another notepad as horrendus as this one.  Right away I drove back to Target (it was 7pm) and bought Patty a set of matching notebooks.  I got the big one because it was spiral like hers and the small one in case she ever carried a small purse (ahahahhahahahah Patty carry a small purse, that is fucking hilarious).  

The next day I brought them to work and opened the big one so I could write a little note to Patty.  I used my favorite teal pen, that made my handwriting almost look sort of nice and wrote a cute little note to her.  I gave them to my mom to take to the post office and then every day for the next two weeks I asked Patty if she had received her notebooks yet.

Finally today I gave up and decided they must be lost so off I went to Target.  LIsa met me there and we went to look at the notebooks.  My head nearly exploded.  The ones I bought her were gone but there was about 17 new ones that I wanted BAD! Very bad.  I grabbed about nine (it could have been more) and Lisa and I walked over to get Codi a new pair of Croc type shoes.  After that we headed to the little girls department because I wanted to show her this skirt I almost bought her daughter for her birthday, but didn't because I was worried it was too short.  We were walking and talking and then BAMMMMM I was ass on the ground. My right foot slid completely out from under me and I went into the splits.  Lisa laughed and said my long Maxi dress is the only thing that kept me from going full on splits.  My knee hurt and my hand but I got up. I looked down and realized there was some wet stuff all over the floor.  My ass was SOAKED.  The worst part is I was wearing little boy short undies so the remainder of the trip I had to walk around pulling my dress back so it didn't get all wet and sticky on my ass.  Whatever it was it was sticky and yucky.  After much debating I narrowed it down to these notebooks.  They will be in the mail for Patty tomorrow.

The only problem is that now I am jealous and I want Patty's notebooks.  I want them reallllllllly bad.  If I had the money I would go buy them again for myself. 

Anyway the moral of the story is, my ass hurts, my brand new dress is stuck to my right ass cheek, my steering wheel is sticky from the shit I fell in and Patty's things are cuter then mine.

I hope you love them Patty, I measured and they should all be just the right size (the one on the right is for in case you ever happen across a small purse and need a small notebook). 

My favorite part of the story is that when Lisa and I walked back by two employees were standing around the spill I fell in saying,  "well what should we do, should we wipe it up?"  "I dunno I mean what do you think it is, it's clear does it really matter."

Employees of the year right there.

And in case you are wondering, when I just stood up my dress was stuck to my ass!

 


Love, Misguided Mommy

You are such a good friend. I have a similar obsession with notepads and planners too. I want to see this maxi dress too. I love maxi dresses but I can never find one that will fit someone as short as me and you are sorta short so I'm intrigued. Where'd you get it??

Awww Patty will love them! Target has the best notebooks, unfortunately for me, I always love cute notebooks, have owned several but barely write in them- so no good for me. :( I always use post it's for all my notes. Except when I was in the Philippines, I had a tiny cute purple swirly notebook for notes. :)

Ummm you guys have no idea the extent of Shannon's notebook obsession. She forgot to mention that her and I went to Target on Saturday and she also bought a notebook and 2 folders then...and then I'm pretty sure she had to go back to Target on Sunday to get a babyshower present, and if I were to make a guess, she bought a notebook then too. Yet she still hasn't bought the stone paper ones...it's paper made of stone that DOES NOT tear....yes you heard me...it DOES NOT tear (both Shannon and I tried to tear a piece from the notebooks while we were standing in the store and it would not tear! And LOL - because I fell on my ass the other day at home...I had socks on and was rushing around and before I knew it my feet slid out from underneath me and and I my ass was planted on my kitchen floor!

I LOVE my notebooks and can't wait to get them. Shannon you are the best! xoxo I can't believe you called out my notebook! LMAO! I didn't buy that...I got it from work. Needless to say that will explain the lack of beauty in the notebook. Hey it was free & useful :)

DOOD! You need to BITCH OUT Target's management about how you could've broken your neck on that damn "clear" spill, but instead of suing them, you will take all the notebooks your little heart desires. Oh, and a pair of undies to replace the ones that were wet. Throw in a bottle of Motrin and some baby wipes to wipe off your steering wheel. Just sayin.

I never write anything down, so I have no planner. And I am always forgetting stuff. Your notebook selections are super cute.
