A little bit of random...but hey, that's what I'm best at

It's been brought to my attention, that I am a bit odd. Shocker, I know. This was not news to those who know me and not really even to me, but I did find it kind of funny how it came up.

I guess not everyone reads the last page of a book before reading the actual book? Or needs to have a movie ruined for them if it is sad or scary, before turning it on? No? I'm not the only one though, right? You guys have to know someone else who does this? Hmmm, maybe I am alone in this. It's something that I've done for so long, that I forgot how weird it might sound to someone else. I found myself explaining it yesterday to a friend and the best I can come up with is that it's an anxiety thing. If I know the ending, I can enjoy it. If not, I fret through the whole thing. Weird? Yes, I will admit that. But it works for me.

Next week, we are going to Disneyland for a few days. Some cousins are going and I decided the second I heard about it, that I was going to go. A lovely brother of mine, who has now been written out of my will (ha, I've always wanted to say that), asked me how in the hell someone as neurotic and anal as me, could just plan vacations like that.

Really it's a logical question, but I am not that logical of a person. Trust me on this one. I can't really explain it, other than, I have been planning how to do this trip, since I decided to go. I am just crazy like that. It's part of my charm. It might seem last minute and really, it is, but I've already mentally packed us. I know where we'll go, how we'll get there and basically have an organized list in my head of the entire trip. Exciting, no? Don't answer that.

In other news, today is the last day of school for the summer. Can you hear my sigh from where you are? In some ways, I am so happy for school to be over. However, I don't have any preconceived notions that it will be an easy. The girls have a love/hate relationship. Either they adore each other and play amazingly well, or they are a nightmare. It can change on a whim. Hopefully the kid sharing scheme my BFF and I came up with will work out well.

Bailey is a bit nervous about Kindergarten. She hasn't slept well in the last few days; having nightmares and crawling into bed with us at some ungodly hour of the morning. I think it's our fault, we may have talked up being a kindergartner a bit too much. She isn't my anxious kid, not normally at least and we tend to forget that she is still a little tiny thing. I am a bit sad about having her no longer being a pre-schooler. I also know, that she is so ready for kindergarten and she'll do phenomenal. Muh babee is getting big though. sigh.

That's all I've got today, I guess. It's going to take me a bit of time to remember how to do this again. It's been so long for me, that I'm kind of like, wait how in the world do I do this again. I'll get there, I promise.

You're doing great!!!! rah, rah, rah

But reading the last page of a book first, yeah, I can't do that. LOL

MG @ MommyGeekology said...

I can't read the last page of a book first, but I really like to know the ends of scary or sad movies before I watch them. I make my hubby explain everything to me before it happens! :)

Jaden Paige said...

lol, I would hate to know the end! I get so mad when Will ruins movies for me :P

Oh and YAY for Disney!!! :)

I can't say that I like to know the end of a book or movie - but I do like to know if the scary ones turn out alright in the end... Strike that, I just won't watch scary movies. I learned my lesson with The Ring. Big mistake. BIG!

jennster said...

who the hell writes something that vile on someone's blog?

anon- go choke on a dick.

Anonymous said...

I'm so excited that I get to see you when you head out this way.

I used to always flip toward the end of the book and then I would get so mad at myself so I force myself not to do it.

But scary movies, not gonna happen. I hate them.

And the eternal question...why is it so easy to be a jackass when you wear the cloak of anonymity. If only everyone could grow a pair. Fuckwit. (And I'm sorry I just totally said the F-word on your blog!)

Would-Be Bonus Mom said...

I know what you mean on the vacation planning!! If we plan a vacation too far in advance I will majorly stress myself and my boyfriend and anyone else unlucky enough to be involved in travel planning with me out. I will obsess over details and lists and itineraries and possible restaurant choices and ticket prices.

But every once in a while, we go on total spur of the moment trips. And you know what? I love it. And everything just seems to fall into place. But I haven't yet figured out how to channel that laid back attitude into our long-awaited trips yet.

Let me know if you get that one figured out!

Mariah said...

Wow anon...why don't you grow a pair. Ass.

Have fun at Disneyland =)

anonymommy said...

If you are going to insult someone, at least have the balls to put your name on it. You know, so we can go to your blog and see for ourselves what a douchenozzle you really are.

anonymommy said...

That comment was for anonymous.

Chibi said...

I freak when The Man-Thing pretends to read me the last page of my book, and heaven help you if you tell me the end of the movie. Spur-of-the moment vacations are becoming a little easier for me, but I'll be an anal-retentive perfectionist for ever, I'm sure. Jealous of Disney -- have a great trip!

Anonymous, you must be super cool to take the time running around the internet extolling your Very Important Opinion without exposing your identity. Oh, wait. Judging by the way you capitalized ass hat, ran the two words together, and didn't add any punctuation, I'll just assume that was you signing YOUR name. *thumbs up*

Jaden Paige said...

Wow... Anon? I am totally with anonymommy- YOU, dickwad, are a DOUCHENOZZLE!

PS: Anonymommy- Just about the BEST new word I have heard recently. Going in the arsenal. Douchenozzle. heh. heh. heh. ;)

Well dang, now I just can't help myself. careful what assumptions you make about mommy bloggers. While husbands stay home and earn money?! I work--full time and then some. AND I out-earn my husband, who has a very respectable and high-paying position. Educate yourself before you start hurling insults.

Issas Crazy World said...

Okay asshat, now you've gone and gotten a blog huh? So you can tell us all how dumb we are. Why don't you go and spew your hate over there, because it's not welcome here.

At first I felt bad for you, now I know you have WAY too much time on your hands and you must be jealous of us.

ASSumptions made on your part, made at my expense, since you did ask: 1. That my friends won't defend me, no me them. 2. That I'd ever bother to kill myself, to put you out of your misery. (Which by the way, your mother must be so proud of you.) 3. That any of us actually care what you have to say. Who are you to us? Nobody. 4. That my husband out earns me and I sit on my ass all day doing nothing. I am raising three children, the youngest isn't even walking. That is the hardest job in the world. Trust me on this, because I used to work in a high powered job and this is so much harder. When I was working (until two years ago, when my husband started his own business), I out earned him by three times. HE was the at home parent. My marriage is a give and take.

Lex said...

I'd love to see you in person too! Especially, if all goes well, I'll be visiting Denver frequently! In fact, I'll be there in a week! eeee!

nice to see you

Margaret said...

I am very confused as to what is going on here.

How could anyone come to someone's blog and say that? Why even bother?

Why would you keep coming back?

Why did you ruin the use of the word "asshat" for me?

AMomTwoBoys said...


Delete Anonatroll's comments and be done with it.

It's not worth your time or energy.

I'd love to see him come to a blog like mine, where everything is tracked and leave "anonymous" comments. I doubt he has the balls for it, though.

tom the girl said...

Disney!!! That's great. Being on the east coast, I have visited Disney World quite a few times, but finally went to Disneyland a few years ago. Exciting, hmm? lol

I can't wait to take baby girl to Disney when she gets old enough & spoil the hell out of her.

Have fun!!!


jennster said...

anon is now on my site.. i love it when they can't come up with their own insults and they just use the ones i give them. jackass.

Anonymous said...

I can't see the evil comments. Probably for the best...but know that I SO would defend you. I think you're terrific!

No layovers in Nashville on the way to Disney? Cause I *so* could do lunch :-)

Anissa Mayhew said...

Oh Daaaaang!

IF I inadvertently sent trolls your way, i'm sorry!!!

But boy, what excitement for those of us who just sit on our asses all day, right??

XOXOX to you, love!

Dirty Mouth Mama said...

I found you from Peyton's site.

I *peek* at the end. I don't get specific, but every now and then when I find myself getting anxious I read a paragraph, just to see a little.

Happy Blogging.

anymommy said...

Wish I was near Disney so I could see you too! It sounds awesome.

And yeah, Kindergarten, gulp. Will you hold me next fall?

Becky said...

yay for disney land! i'm super excited for yall. and i don't think you're odd at all. i have total anxiety through suspenseful movies too BUT i like that feeling when i know i'm gonna find out how it all ends so i deal with it! you rock :)

and i missed what anon said but screw him/her.

Kari said...

I'm so jealous, can you pack me in your suitcase? I want to come too!

My oldest is going to Kindergarten this fall too! My baby is going to be in grade school, I can't believe it. What am I going to call my blog when they're both out of preschool???

p.s. I can't for the life of me figure out how someone would be inspired to make a hateful comment on this post. Really. It's baffling.

EatPlayLove said...

Ok, I am not ignoring what took place here, but simply responding to your post.

You NEED to read The Book Thief. The narrator gives away the ending in the first chapter. Sounds perfect for you.
