Its "OK" Thursday 12/13

Its Ok Thursdays
"Its OK"
-That I know its a happy time of year so why am I so grumpy and in such a rush with everything? Its OK because I am working on it.

-That the 80 year old woman who came into the spa the other day was a kook. She wanted to know why she had hair growing all over her chin and why she had nothing down "there". How do you even answer that? How would I know? She also wanted to let us know that she knew what "friends with benefits were".  I did contain myself and did not burst out into laughter while she was asking a million questions (even though my favorite esthetician was grinding her finger into my back to either make me laugh or because she couldn't believe what was coming out of this ladies mouth).  I think the spaceship picked her up when she left. I love my old people (heck I am almost one of them) but this lady was whack.

-That I visited my daughters work last week and she works right out on the trading floor. She never told me that. I got to sit with her for awhile. She works with a nice group of people. This week their treat will be cheesecake,  if I can fit in making them later.

-That my roots are about an inch long and I have no polish left on my baby toe. That's how busy I have been. No time for maintenance. I am just about done with all of my Christmas shopping so hopefully I can fix that. Maybe that's why I am so grumpy? I miss my pampering.
-That I spent about 5 and a half hours cleaning by myself on Sunday. What is wrong with this picture? I have two adult children who are either out gallivanting or with their significant others. Being the grump that I have been, I told them, next time I am stuck in cleaning up their bathroom and rooms and the house in general by myself, they will have to pay me $50.00 like I am the cleaning woman. Lets hope that does the trick.

-That as much as my son aggravates me at times, he is pretty funny. He said he was going to be a dish next Halloween because girls like to do dishes.

-That my husband told me that I had until noon yesterday to book our vacation for January. Jet blue's website was too slow and I did not have the time to just sit and wait. I wanted to know why he couldn't do it because I had so much to do. I sat back and realized, he works so hard so that we can go on vacation and it is really not that big of a deal. Even though he works from home most of the time, he is not just sitting here. He starts at about 6 a.m. and I have to drag him out of the study by 7 p.m. to have dinner. He works more when I go to bed. His schedule is ridiculous and I do feel bad for him. Don't tell him I said that. I will happily book that vacation today because it never got done yesterday.

-That I am trying to book that vacation so that it coincides with me going to visit my favorite baby for her 2nd birthday. Why go to the airport a few days later if I can maneuver it so that after I get back from my vacation I just hop on a plane to visit her? I am trying to be practical. I think hell just froze over.

-That this will be the last night of trivia with my brother in law. He is going back to Florida on Saturday. He has been with us since June and I will really miss him. We had so much fun with him. I am going to make him his own wine glass so that when he is back in Florida, he will think of us while having his wine. He loves his wine. Every day he sends me a text "what time is happy hour"?

-That while looking through my pictures, I just realized I forgot to get a specific gift for my husband. Just when I thought I was in the clear. I guess it is going to be another busy day. I will NOT be grumpy about it today. Well maybe just a little when I am at the grocery store yet again. Has it even been a week since I have last been?  Oh well.....
Have a great Thursday!


  1. I think we're having somewhat similar days! I desperately need to clean/organize a bit more and put together some furniture while I'm at it.
    I love your positivity - it is definitely the best in the end :)
    Have a great Thursday Laura!!!

  2. Everyone has days like yours this time of year, I think. I also need to do organize myself with C'mas gifts and what I need to cook to take to my daughter's house. I need to get them a present and to my other daughter and her boyfriend. I like your attitude and I think I'm going to take it as advice. I have hubby's gift already, at least. Enjoy the holiday season sweet lady and thank you for your sweet visit, I always love it when you do.

  3. Grumpy is cute, right? I mean he is one of the beloved Disney Dwarves after all ;-) The days are going waaaay too fast. I really need to make Mr. B's grandmother's ginger snaps so he can take them to work Monday, yet, here I sit...It will get done, just not today and it's okay! I was at Michael's this morning and thought of you :-)

  4. I hope the case of the grumpies leaves you soon
    I think a good highlight and pedicure should do the trick
    Don't get me started on house cleaning
    When the boys left I decided I didn't need a cleaning lady anymore and I could do it myself
    Dumbest decision I have ever made!!!
    Hope your weekend is fabulous

  5. The grumpies hit me during this time of the year too. I think it's just because of the stress and the pressure to get everything done and on top of it the kids go on winter break. I need to work on leaving the grumpies behind me too :)

    I hope you are having a lovely week my dear and thank you so much for linking up to last week's Aloha Friday Blog Hop.

    If you have time, we'd love to have you come back and link up to the Aloha Friday Blog Hop if you haven't already!
