Hey, It's Okay Tuesday!

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. They have a section called Hey, It’s Okay and will list a bunch of things to be okay about. I think I’m going to do this every Tuesday now. So without further ado…


Hey, It’s Okay Tuesday


To know that you probably aren’t going to do any of the things suggested in the latest Family Fun magazine (make bunnies from socks? No thanks.)


To rarely buy organic food.


To accidentally nearly set your house on fire when all you were trying to do is make some French Fries.


To tell your kids that if they don’t eat their broccoli that they’ll make Jesus cry.


To never ever work out at 5 in the morning.


To giggle at the celebrities who constantly tweet about meditation and going to yoga and loving edamame beans. Especially when you know that these celebrities have a penchant for partying and not wearing underwear.


To wince when a Toyota drives behind you and hope to God that their brakes work.


To think the American Association of Pediatrics must be insane to say that children under the age of 2 should not watch TV. These people must not have children.


To want to tell Tiger Woods’ mistresses who are whining that THEY didn’t get an apology to shut their traps and get some morals.


To thank the chocolate gods that your kid isn’t crazy about Justin Bieber, who always seems to be a trending topic on Twitter (WHY?).


To have been traumatized within the first 10 minutes of High School Musical and refuse to ever finish the rest.


To have a husband who makes everything you say be sexual. For instance, when you go “I’m going to have a pickle,” don’t be surprised when he gyrates his hips at you and says something like, “I have a pickle for you right here.” You’ll learn to ignore it, I promise.

  1. Great list! I especially relate to the last one. I can NOT eat a banana without the hub asking, "Can I watch?" Enough. You're an adult now, right?

  2. Also, organic food makes me angry... I'm not sure why.

  3. Ha! You should try being married to a tool rep when you say things. I can't tell him to move his drill bits in the garage without the eyebrows wagging!

  4. Yes, yes, yes. To everything on this list. Especially the working out at 5 a.m. People who do that are c-c-c-crazy, in my humble opinion.

  5. Oh thanks for this! I needed the laugh!

  6. I swear I sign on every day just to see what you have written. And the last one - is totally my husband.

  8. the last one was priceless....i am hoping your husband is reading your blog and thinking "Hey it's ok to do idiot things and then be revealed to the whole world but hey it's ok cos maybe the insurance company will send another check to my wife just for damages for being married to an absolute nutter..."

    :))

  9. This is the best. I definately think it is okay to tell your kids that Jesus cries when they don't eat thier broccoli.

    ReplyDelete
  10. My husband does the same thing. I just roll my eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Ha! A Great list! I have a husband who does that too. Thank God I'm not the only one. He didn't do it before we were married though so I had no idea what lay ahead.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have the "pickle" husband as well. Do they ever really grow up after 13 years old?

    ReplyDelete
  13. OMG, I love...ALL of these! Can't even pick my favorite!! Don't you just love how the celebrities love to talk about their yoga and string bean diets, then the paparazzi totally catches them cramming a meatball sub down their throat two days later? It's my favorite!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Funny list!

    and I agree...whoeever says not to let kids watch TV doesnt have kids. period.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Great list! I must be too old, I have no idea who Justin Bieber is.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Good gracious; the last one really hit home. Guys and their penises...

    ReplyDelete
  17. Is it all husbands that do that or what?! Why everything has to be about getting in my pants I haven't a clue. {sigh}

    As if the Tiger mistresses couldn't look any more stupid...then they do this! I really like when the STRIPPER gets to crying on TV and begging to be respected. Oh really? Nah, I don't think so.

  18. My hubs can find something sexual in ANYTHING

    ReplyDelete
  19. You're too funny. I kind of feel bad now that I relate more to the hell no to sock bunnies than the pickle husband. Maybe I'm kind of hard up, but I wouldn't mind a little innuendo. (That's what she said.)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Or sausage, or banana, or anything involving meat lol!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can relate to the last one!! My fiance turns the most non-sexual statements into something sexual. On a plane last summer, I asked him to ask the stewardess if I could have some peanuts and he said "Well if you meet me in the bathroom in 5 minutes I can give you some better nuts!".. unfortunately, everyone around us heard him and either gave us dirty looks or laughed. *Sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOL great list! However, I think the last one is just a MAN thing all together as my husband does the exact same thing - sometimes it's SO frustrating but yes, I have learned to ignore and tune it out as well. HA! :o)

    ReplyDelete
  23. That is soooo my husband! It drives me nuts. And when I ignore it he repeats himself as though what he just said was worth repeating. *rolling eyes*

    I love this new post idea!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I WANT the pickle husband. When the pickle is just a thing of the past, you just start wishing for a good gerkins, ya know?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I have one of THOSE husbands - the I've got your pickle right here kind... and if he cant make reference to his "pickle" he can always find a way to work in a "thats what she said" *eye roll*

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yep. I've got one of those husbands too. Yay.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I love it, especially the broccoli making Jesus cry.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hi!!! I mentioned you on my blog today. Come on over and see.

    It's Okay!!!! ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  29. So funny and so true! I love them all.

    ReplyDelete
  30. My kids ask for broccoli but I can certainly relate to the rest, especially the last one.

    I have yet to meet a man who can resist offering his junk up for tasting. Sheesh! Can't a girls eat a pickle, sausage or banana in peace?

    (BTW-sending you the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Brownie recipe, you won't believe how easy it is!)

  31. Such a funny list!

    I was cracking up at your last one! My dh can make pretty much EVERYTHING sexual.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love it!!

    Makes me feel better about yelling back at the anal and rude lifeguard at my 2 year olds swimming lessons today. It's okay! ;)

  34. Hi there. I was just reading blogs and came across yours. Just wanted to tell you that your blog is so funny and interesting.
    I'm Swiss, so I'm not a native speaker (English) but the way you write is great :)

  40. number 4.. hilarious!!!

    that last one, so true, so true!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like this.

    And the Justin Bieber thing is b/c of a video on YouTube of a 3 yr old crying b/c he loves him so much. Its kinda funny b/c she is so hysterical. If you want to see it, search for it on YouTube.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I love the list! it made me giggle after a particularly rough afternoon. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  43. OMG - laughing my butt off here! "You'll make Jesus cry" - that's classic!! My husband and his bf can make anything on the planet sexual. Sometimes I try to be clever and beat them to the punch, but they just look at me funny, like I'm being inappropriate. Boys are dumb.

    ReplyDelete
  44. AMEN on that last one! And many of the others too.

    ReplyDelete
  45. You better learn to ignore your husband because he will not outgrow it. Mine is 38 and still with the turning everything sexual.

    Love the list. Except that I have no idea who Justin Bieber is and for that I am truly thankful.

  46. Ha! I laughed out loud at most of these. And can so identify with all of them. Hilarious!

  47. Love it!! Have no idea who Justin Bieber is and don't wnat to. And you know what ITS OK!

  55. Wow. Housewife Bliss really liked your post... :)

    The organic food thing.... I'd love to not feed my family processed food with pretend ingredients in it that may be causing diabetes and heart disease, but $10 only goes so far, you know?

    ReplyDelete
  56. AMAZING!! I'm storing up all your wisdom for if I ever have kids (looking pretty unlikely, but I like to be prepared). I tell myself that not buying that handbag will make Jesus cry. Is that bad?

    ReplyDelete
  57. a 5 am workout? Yikes. Work out, oh yes. at 5 am? NEVER.

    ReplyDelete
  58. The broccoli comment made me snort.

    And your husband sounds like The Todd on Scrubs. I don't know if you're familiar, but he is very gifted at double entendre and innuendo. It's a gift, really.

    If I felt like mimicking this idea, could I link back to you and join in "Hey, It's Okay" Tuesdays?

    ReplyDelete
  59. I guess it's nice (or sad) to know that my hubby isn't the only one. I hadn't thought about the broccoli=crying baby jesus, but that's a good one!! Sadly, I've finished High School Musical and seen Camp Rock so many times I can sing the ending song. *cringe*

    ReplyDelete
  60. Just thought I'd let you know you made my day!
