I Got A Lot on My Mind This Week and an Apology to All the Doomsday Preppers.


I can’t believe it’s almost Halloween, then Thanksgiving, then Christmas, then 2018! Where does the time go? It’s 83 degrees right now as I type this. This morning I woke up to 49 degrees. However, I still wore short sleeves and no jacket to work because, Menopause.  It may have been 49 degrees but it felt wonderful! 

I think we are all still reeling from the Vegas tragedy and all the hurricane disasters. If you don’t think the end of the world has started then good for you for being in denial. But the signs are all there peeps. I want to officially and publically apologize to all the Doomsday Preppers out there for making fun of you all these years. I thought you were all crazy with your underground, over the top bunkers that are nicer and prettier than my own house. All your food storage and freeze dried meals, and “bug out bags”. I laughed at you and made fun of you at parties. Now I’m eating crow and humbly apologizing. Please let me stay with you! 

Who am I kidding though. I can’t even get prepared for Halloween. I put out 2 pumpkins and a candle and told the fam that I was done decorating. Am I just getting old and grumpy? I don’t even want to give out candy this year. I used to love it but there are way to  many teens without costumes and showing up with pillowcases for candy. Do you know how much a bag of candy costs nowadays to hand out? It’s $10.00 for the cheap stuff! Not that you can’t find it cheaper but I don’t have time to search. I just want to turn off my light, lock the doors and watch scary movies and drink margaritas with Big Daddy this year. 

I bet a lot of you already have your Christmas or Hanukah presents bought. Not me. I will do the last minute Amazon buy-a-thon and pray they all make it before Christmas Eve. Speaking of Christmas. I have a little dilemma I hope you can help me with. Thing 2, is set to travel to the UK after Christmas with a school group. I’ve paid for the trip and he has his passport, but I am really nervous to let him go. His first trip abroad. I know I can’t stop the terrorists and I know we can’t let them call the shots and hamper our plans or they win. But, he’s my kid. What would you do? I mean I know I’m still going to let him go. But I will have to deal with a whole week as a very worried mom. Even with my cocktails and anxiety pills, I don’t think I will be a joy to be around till he comes back home. 

Well, that’s about all I have on my mind today. Except what we’re having for dinner. That’s an everyday issue. lol I also want to take the time and thank you guys for always reading my blog. I know I ramble an awful lot but you guys are troopers for sticking with me. I love all the emails from my readers and friends who tell me I crack them up. (I honestly think you may need to get more of a life if that’s you). 

Lastly, if you don’t already, follow me on Instagram. I have been having a great time with my Trashy Slutty Barbie pictures. Sorry, but it’s how my mind works. lol 

Until next week, Cheers Bitches!

  1. Missy, I am with you on shutting off the outside lights, making a cocktail and watching a scary movie. Last year a van pulled up and parents with their newborn babies rang our doorbell for candy. Ummmmm 😱😱😱As for Thing 2 traveling to the UK He will be safe and you will be ok waiting. Just tell him to be hyper-aware of his surroundings and be careful of pick pockets. Thanks for another great blog post. Good luck with your holiday shopping. And for those that have already finished 😜😜😜Hugs Robyn

  2. My children are all still under my wing so it’s hard to tell you what you should do, BUT I will say this as hard as it id to let them go we have to let experience life and all it’s splendor. We don’t know when the rug will be pulled from beneath our mommy feet , but I think I would rather know in my heart that I never held them back . It’s hard to let my kids out the door for school let alone abroad so I totally get it. Follow your heart !

  3. I’m definitely not the one to comment on what Thing 2 should do— I’m biting my nails while I think about my “baby” who’s now in high school going to the State Fair unsupervised on Friday the 13th. 🙂
