Its OK Thursday 3/28

Its Ok Thursdays

"Its OK"

- That I finally took down my biggest wreath on my big window in the front of my house just YESTERDAY. It is the end of March. I am embarrassed. I climbed a ladder and did not even care if I bought the farm. It needed to come down. I wanted to hang my spring wreath for Easter. In our defense, the snow has been so deep that it was hard to get to. I can finally see grass on my front lawn.

- That I have been detoxing from my winter food fest for weeks now. I worked on Monday and I had to take my spanx off half way through my shift. I was seconds away from having my circulation cut off. How does that even happen when not one piece of chocolate or junk food has passed these lips in three weeks? I felt like I gained weight. While commiserating with my oldest daughter she told me "Mom, that's what happens, first you bloat then you lose the weight". I think she has watched the movie Mean Girls one to many times but that's OK. I don't think that's exactly how it works.

- That while at work on Monday I had just made oatmeal and had to put it aside because I needed to check out a client. The client saw my oatmeal and asked me if she ate lentils too would she be thin like me. Does oatmeal even look like lentils?
It was kind of ironic that she said that seeing that I felt like a tick ready to explode at any second.

- That I will be making two turkey breasts for Easter. My grocery store did not have one turkey that was not their brand. I am picky when it comes to my turkey. I guess we are weird for even having turkey on Easter. We are just not ham people.

- That my daughter is having a really difficult time with my favorite baby. She is up crying every night. She did have an ear infection but it has cleared up. She is still waking up. Maybe the poor thing is having night terrors. Who knows what goes on in a 2 year old mind. I feel so bad for her (the baby, not my daughter). I just hope she learns to behave. She doesn't realize she is blowing my chances for a second favorite baby.

- That I think we finally got rid of our pet. I had to stop feeding the birds and I feel bad about that.

- That my husband and I just celebrated the day we met 29 years ago. A lifetime ago it seems.

- That I will be steering clear of any fashion magazines for the next 3 months. I don't need to learn for the millionth time how to apply self tanner. I am sure they are all  getting their articles ready (like its rocket science). I will not however give up my US weekly.

- That winter is here. I cannot wait until Game of Thrones starts on Sunday. It will conflict with another of my favorite shows, My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, but that's what a DVR is for.

Have a great Thursday!

Its OK Thursday 3/7

Its Ok Thursdays

"Its OK"

- That we are in the midst of yet another snowstorm. What a winter. I got everything done in the beginning of the week so it is really OK.

- That we still never shoveled our walkway from the last storm. It keeps the peddlers out right?

- That I am addicted to face book poker.

- That my daughter and I have been putting off three way calling my mother. We will do it today.

- That I made it to the gym this week and hated every second of it.

- That I hope I get my blogging mojo back.

-That I made my daughter brownies to bring to work yesterday. When I came downstairs this morning, she had a few of them separated and packaged up with candy. When I asked her what they were for, she said they were for the homeless people she sees on her way to work. I am glad that she has been working in the city for awhile now and is not cynical.

- That my husband has the option to either buy me a puppy or adopt a baby. I think he will go with the puppy.

- That I took every single nicknack from every corner of my house, including my dining room hutch and washed it one day out of boredom. It took all day long. That is why I need a baby or a puppy.

- That I tried a new nail salon yesterday even though my friend told me she thinks they give "happy endings" in the back. I did not witness any shenanigans. They did a good job. The place I had been going to for over 10 years changed ownership. They are not as good.

- That it will be another weekend of cooking and entertaining all weekend. I enjoy it.

-That while driving home from work, my eye felt blurry. I thought it was my contact. I was wearing my sunglasses and thought nothing of it.  When I got home, I realized that one of my sunglasses lenses were missing. I drove all the way home looking like a pirate and I didn't even know it. I felt like such a loser. How did I not know? I can only imagine what passing cars must have thought.

- That I love that my friends opened up their own salon. They do a fantastic job. I don't usually go for blowouts but I may just to go visit with them. They keep me young or at least young at heart. They want to keep me young too. No soccer mom hair for me. I will be the old lady with the long grey braid.

- That this is my daily spot. It is winter after all.
(with a Cosmo of course)

Have a great Thursday!
