Its "OK" Thursday 11/15

Its Ok Thursdays

"Its OK"

-That my favorite baby has not learned to hide properly when she is told it is nap time. Her Mimi needs to teach her to go all the way in the box.

-That I don't understand the whole "red cup" hype. I like my Dunkin Donuts cup just as well. To each his own. That is why they make chocolate and vanilla ice cream.

-That I took my son for a job interview yesterday. He got the job and I guess I got a job too, I now have to drive him there.

-That my daughter kept trying to wake me up yesterday because she was mad that she couldn't find a pair of tights that were put in the laundry.  She proceeded to be nasty to me about how I took all of her clothes out of her overnight bag and washed them (seriously, I wish someone would take initiative and come in and just take my clothes and wash them, who would complain about that?) She had taken a sweater from the son I never had and it was in the bag of clothes that I had washed. I washed and dried it and didn't even know it was in there. I am a notorious clothes shrinker and she was afraid that I had shrunk it. We will see this weekend when he tries it on. I thought I was doing her a favor. She was so bitchy about it. She even tried to throw me under the bus by telling my husband that I was hoarding his socks in my clothes pile.  I made her cookies anyway to bring to work today. I am a sap. (She wanted this story told, hopefully it is because she feels bad for being mean to her mom). A note to my daughter, get organized and get ready the night before, then you wont be scrambling in the morning.

-That my daughter was face timing with the son I never had last night and I stuck my head in there and I told him that I was now wearing his sweater as a belly shirt because it had shrunk. He knows how worked up my daughter was over it. At least I made him smile.

-That the friend I work for, asked me if I could come in to work last night and do a massage interview at 6:00. That means I had to get a massage and let her know how it was. I actually wasn't sure if I could because I had already been planning on cooking at that time. I cant believe I actually hesitated. I went and it was the best massage I have had in a long time. Like I said, I love my job.

-That I am proud of my beautiful niece for winning her cheering competition this past weekend. I didn't realize how much I have missed going to cheering competitions.

-That I wish I had 1/4 of their energy

-That we have made it to Thursday night trivia all month. We look forward to it. Trivia is from 8:00-10:00. After its over,  my daughter and I go ask the DJ to play "Back that ass up" and "Put your back into it". The DJ smiles when he sees us because he knows what we are going to ask him to play. We are usually the only ones on the dance floor. We have fun. We dance to the two songs then go home. After all, it is only Thursday.

-That the Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies have already sucked me in. I will watch any Christmas movie. I actually ended up DVR'ing the end of an infantile movie about Santa when I had to go out last night. I wanted to see what happened. What is wrong with me?

-That Saturday and Sunday I will be at the Miss Massachusetts/Miss Teen Massachusetts pageant. The woman that works for my husband is participating again this year. Last year we only went for one day. This year we will go both days. I think she has a great chance. I have already seen her gown. It is spectacular. Last year she had the best gown in the whole pageant.  I really hope she wins. She is great.
We convinced my brother in law (who is single) to come along. He mentioned something about getting opera glasses.

-That there is nothing like a great scandal, especially when it involve a General.

-That my son has not even been home 2 weeks and his room already smells like a hamster cage.

-That my husband booked our NYC trip. I really was going back and forth with leaving everyone here alone for the week. I will be going back and forth with it until the day I leave.  I will be glad I made the decision to go once I get there.

-That I am sure I could think of more but I have to go to my new job of driving my son to work.

Have a great Thursday!


  1. I'm not a huge Dunkin fan but I do love their holiday cup. I've been sucked in by those Christmas movies too!

  2. Your favorite baby is adorable! By the way, does your work place need any help? Massage? What could be any better?
    Have a good weekend, Sandie

  3. The baby picture... that is so cute! And I laughed out loud when I read about the hamster cage smell... it's such a distinct smell, isn't it?

    Please stop by and say hi sometime!

    Have a fabulous day!

  4. Those Christmas movies have already started?!?! I'm sad I've been missing them!! Love them.

    Congrats to your son on his new job - and to you too on yours LOL ;)

    Back That Ass Up - Nice choice

    Jealous of your upcoming New York trip - hope you take tons of pics to share!

  5. I'm glad I'm not the only one who's gotten sucked into the Hallmark and Lifetime Christmas movies!! I spent all day last Saturday watching them!! Love that you guys ask the DJ to play those songs..too funny!!

  6. Oh my gosh!You are driving your son to work?? lol.. That is awesome! And getting yelled at for doing your daughters laundry? Sounds like my household! Were dammed if we do and dammed if we don't huh chica! Love the fact that you and your daughter go out together! I can't wait for those days which are right around the corner.

  7. I too get in trouble for having the nerve to wash my daughters clothes without asking? Seriously?
    AND I spent the weekend at my DDs first ever cheer competition! It was amazing! You have to go to one to believe the energy:)

  8. Ah yes, I remember the days of taking my sons to work. My youngest had to be at his job at one end of town at 8 am and I had to be at mine at 9 am. The traffic to his was horrific. He slept all the way while I cursed and huffed. On the days he didn't sleep though, we would sing to the songs on the radio together. His friends were always impressed with my knowledge of the words to "their" music lol. It was a pain but now, I miss them now that they are grown up and moved so far away :-( Have a cocktail for me at trivia night please ;-)

  9. LOVE the D.Donut holiday cup! And love your post ~ Life HAPPENS! Thanks for sharing ~ I'm your newest follower! And Happy Week-end to all and Happy Thanksgving next week everyone!

  10. It's pretty wonderful that he got the job though! I love these posts of yours and it's pretty good that your daughter at least acknowledges when she overreacts - you're such a great mother :)

  11. I love this post. and that baby in a box-- adorable.

    Aloha "hopping" by a little late to say "hi". I wanted to personally invite you to to join An Aloha Affair. It's a sweet gathering of creative souls. We'll mingle and grow and share our work so that we can get to know each other in meaningful ways. I'd love it if you'd join us, 'save ya a spot?...


  12. You have a wonderful blog!! I'm your newest follower from the “Weekend Social” blog hop - this is my blog if you wanted to follow back:

  13. Hoarding socks is a serious offense, you know. Punishable by baking a batch of cookies, so, in effect, you're even.

    Nice post. Had me laughing to myself right here in the middle of McDonald's. (No, they didn't pay me to mention them). I'll be back!

  14. Oh honey, when we our kids get jobs..we do too, is right!! I remember those driving days myself, lol! Now I'm helping with the parties for my grands! Enjoy your kids, gosh, they grow so darn fast for my taste! Congrats to your pretty niece for winning the cheerleader competition, wow! Thanks for your sweet and kind visit.
