Tales of a Misguided Mommy


I know what I'm about to say might make some of you unfollow me right away.  I understand.  But I have to say this. 


There.  I said it.  It's true though.  I do not get all excited for fall and pumpkin stuff.  I hate when everyone suddenly turns every good thing pumpkin.  Coffee, creamer, ice cream, cake, pasta, dessert, candles, and every other thing on the planet.  I don't like it one bit.

I don't like apple bobbing. It is gross.  Twenty people with their mouth open, salivating in the same bucket of water.  Excuse me while I puke in the bucket.

I don't like Demi Lovatto.  I know that she is every ones hero but I don't like her.  I don't like her music.  I don't like her shows.  

I hate putting the vacuum away. I will vacuum all day but for some reason I hate putting the vacuum away.

Same goes for laundry.  I can wash and fold but I loath putting it away.

I have never read Harry Potter.  Not only that but I refuse to just on principal.  I basically refuse to read anything by JK Rowlings.  I have no reason for this it's just a long standing decision I made years ago that I intend to stick to.

I feel the same way about the Hunger Games.  I have no desire to read or watch it.

When I read 50 Shades I pictured Christian as a brunette the entire time.  He is not a red head in my mind and I sure hope he isn't in the movie.  

Febreeze smells funny to me.  I would rather use a Salt City Grapefruit Vanilla candle.  

I hate spiders, but I can never remember to buy spider killer.  NEVER.  

I cannot sleep alone. If my husband is gone I am a disaster.  If he died, or we got divorced I would be so screwed.  I would probably have to hire someone to move in with me or pay Ginger to move home and move into my house because OMG people I cannot be alone at night in the dark.

I don't like murder mysteries on TV or movies.  I prefer love stories.  I will tolerate comedy but honestly I just really really prefer romance.

Murder mysteries are not the same thing as Criminal Minds or CSI.  I like those.  I do not like those...Lifetime movies where someone kills their wife, husband, baby sitter etc.  Those scare me for a year.

I do not understand Hawaiian pizza.  Pineapple on pizza?  WHY? In the end I mostly prefer cheese pizza.  On occasion vegetarian pizza works but when it comes down to it my pizza preferences match that of my four year old. 


Love, Misguided Mommy

And this is exactly why why are friends... well except the pumpkin situation...I love pumpkin! And the whole hawaiian pizza thing (what I don't get is chicken on pizza...that is just gross!). However...I don't really even know who Demi Lovatto is (I hear her name but there is no way in hell I coudl pick her out of a line up), I never have, nor ever will have any desire to watch/read/play anything that has to do with Harry Potter, The Hunger Games or for that matter, Lord of the Rings...get over it people, I don't need to "just watch the movies" or "just read the books" to really love it...they are stupid and you are adults, grow up and read 50 Shades where instead of searching for a ring or a wand, they are searching for the next orgasm! P.S. I always pictured Christian's hair med-dark brown with auburn highlights...picturing him as a true red head is just distrubing because of all the fire crotch implications!

I do love the pumpkin everything...well, except for the pop tarts, because WHAT IS THAT ABOUT? I agree with you on Harry Potter. I just won't read them. Ever. For no reason at all. And Ed is at work, which is why I am not in bed. I don't like to sleep alone. I hate when he abandons me for work.

I agree on pumpkin things. I don't like pumpking flavored things or actual pumpkin things. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin soup, pumpkin anything. Except the seeds. I love taking out the seeds and covering them in butter and garlic or cajun seasoning and roasting them. My vacuum lives in the center of the hall and the laundry lives in baskets on the floor next to the dryer. I felt the same way as you about Harry Potter for years and then got stuck in a hospital waiting room for 5 hours and had a choice of a Harry Potter book someone offered or talking to a strange woman about her husbands colon. Turns out I loved them and decided not to snub other books in the future. I totally get why you do though. I have gone back on my rule and have snubbed Twilight and 50 Shades in such a fashion. And fruit does not belong on pizza. Ever.

You know where I stand on pumpkin. I can't agree to many of these but I am 100% with you on pineapple on pizza. It's not natural.

I love pumpkin everything.. actually that is a lie there are pumpkin cookies that is gross... but I love pumpkin pie, coffee, yummy... I love hawiian pizza its delicious... as for Harry Potter I have seen the movies and read(SORTA) the books. Being a twin to the biggest harry potter nerd kinda forced me to. Your a crazy woman and should just give pumpkin a chance. :)
