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. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your diary. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either.

Hey, It's Okay....



To not have cared where Lebron James was going to next.


To wonder how the girls who stand in the front row at Zumba class do not look winded by the end of the hour. Aren’t they tired? Are they human?


To watch Big Brother and root for the under dog. IE not the girl who looks like Barbie or the guy who looks like Ken.


To wish I knew a psychic octopus. I’d ask it things like, “Will I ever get a book published, will Natalie ever use the potty, and will Kate Gosselin ever go away?”


To order the waffle bowl with sprinkles at Coldstone—for yourself.


To wonder what in the hell happened to Mel Gibson. He voiced a Disney character for craps sake! He was William Wallace! I used to love him. And now? Not so much.


To wish I could just stretch out on the sand and read when I go to the beach. But with young kids, it’s out of the question. Oh well. Maybe ten years from now…


To think that the Target 75% off toy sale will occur while I’m visiting my family—will they think I’m nuts if I ask for a detour to Target?


To have loved the new Campfire Blast from Sonic—it’s like a s’more in a cup.


To love when your husband surprises you with a sweet card. He’s been...more romantic lately and I think it’s because his departure to Korea is drawing closer and closer...I’ll take it though.

  2. The card is sweet.

    As for Ken and Barbie...I was at a Drum and Bugle Corp show and two of the field commanders on one team had the names of...yep, Ken and Barbie. Very strange.

  3. What a great idea! I had to laugh at the Lebron James one!

    Thank you so much for commenting on my BFF post over at Shell's blog last week!

  17. I so don't care where Lebron is going either. I so want to try the Campfire Blast from Sonic. They are opening one near us soon.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I remember when I was younger my mom really liked Mel Gibson. "He's so handsome", I remember her saying. I wonder what she thinks now.

    That card is so sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I'm a closet Big Brother fan too. Although probably not so "closet" now that I've blasted it on the internet!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Mmmm! Sonic sounds good. darn it! You and food. Always making me hungry!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a sweet card! Good job, Tom.

    I went to Target today. No 75% off sales, but plenty of other things for me to drop money on! Oy.

    ReplyDelete
  22. what a sweetie! I bet he will miss you SO much, even though he is probably acting all macho "hey babe, don't crowd me with your FEELINGS" ;)

    And WTF is Mel Gibson smokin???

  24. Love me some Coldstone! Yum.

    What a sweet card. Yay, Tom.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hi. It's me again - Team Mel? I, um, just read quotes from the third tape released and, um, my earlier statement of support? Yeah, I think I'm going to have to, um, retract that. Yeah.

    whattheHELL, Mel?!?!!?! You used to be Da Man! Now you're Da A**hole!

    ReplyDelete
  26. yes on the lebron, yes on the mel, yes on the colstone...yummy! and Tom is definately feeling time closing in.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I feel so bad for those who don't have Sonic. It's really a tragedy and a national crisis.

    Romance from the hubby is great, no matter the reason! That is a sweet card!

    Mel Gibson has disolved into a sad little man.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I had to have a larger conversation with my coworker about LeBron, because I had literally no idea what all the hoopla was about.

    ReplyDelete
  29. HAHA...great post!
    I'm curious to see how Big Brother is this year! Ohhhh, a psychic octopus! what the?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I tried to watch teh new Kate Plus 8 the other night and I have to say that I know understand why Jon left her.......she is a MAJOR control freak and it has to be her way or the highway.

    ReplyDelete
  31. These are funny as always! Target always has its 75 percent off sale right before my daughter's birthday. SWEET!

    I'm glad your husband is being more romantic! Way cool!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well, is it okay not to know who Lebron James is?

    ReplyDelete
  33. That card is so very romantic. Made my toes curl.=) And what the hell did happen to Mel Gibson? Just watched him in Ransom a few days ago and it's so sad that he's publicly lost his mind.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Aw, what a sweet hubby you have. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I hate zumba and people who do it. Just because they always tell me how AWESOME it is. blech

    ReplyDelete
  36. Mel Gibson is DONE. I don't care about Lebron either!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hahaha for your comment about LeBron James. And the card from Tom is wonderful...he will definitely miss you. And I'm guessing you'll miss him, too.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Of course he'll miss you! And I hate old Mel now and I used to love him too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. i think the target clearance is usually in august, isn't it? someone post when it starts!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I still don't really know who Lebron James is.

    Great post and great idea!

    Following you now!

  41. Sweet card...

    I hated the beach until my youngest kids were maybe 9 or 10. Even now I worry but it's not even almost the same panic.

    And Zumba... psst... I don't even go to Zumba and wonder if those ladies are real.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I'm right there with you on all those. And not only do I not care where Lebron James is going - I don't even know who he is - nor do I care to find out.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I love your posts! They almost always give me a laugh. I found your blog through a friend of mine, and always look forward to reading what you've written.

  45. I heard this Lebron James joke yesterday...

    "LeBron James was in New York this weekend for Carmelo Anthony’s wedding. When they asked him if he wanted chicken or steak, he held an hour-long special to announce his decision."

    Ass-hat...

    ReplyDelete
  46. You had me at s'mores in a cup, really?

    That sounds crazy delicious :)

    And your husband may be just as sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I SO want a waffle bowl with sprinkles now! lol

    And what did happen to Mel Gibson? He used to be all that and a block of cheese...

    And I will try that Campfire Blast if it's the last thing I do!

  48. You should enter the contest to blog for Aafes; maybe it is your step into being published. And if not, you will have still put a smile on a lot of military faces.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ahhh...warm sand between my toes with my nose in a book. The ultimate.

    I am soooo disappointed in Mel Gibson.

    Sweet card...bitter sweet.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I always look forward to your "hey it's ok" post....I have been thinking so many of the same things like lebron who? kate needs to move on...Mel Gibson needs to be put in his place. and yes some day i will be on a beach with a book minus the half pint (even though I love him lol)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I wish that every single time we go to the beach. The last time we went, dh brought our beach chairs. I just laughed at him.
