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

----------------------

To have never gotten a manicure. This is because I have a bad habit of picking or chewing my nails. Gross, I know.


To not understand when parents are like, “We went to McDonalds for dinner. Bad, I know…” It’s not bad. Don’t knock McDonalds!


To be an awful packer. I’m leaving for Texas on Friday for my Nana Jo’s 90th birthday party. I’m also an awful flier. The slightest jolt makes me nervous.


To think it’s interesting that they choose to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men with Ashton Kutcher.


To be excited that they are making a Men In Black III.


To have really wanted Zev and Justin to win The Amazing Race.


To not like the Charmin commercials. I don’t want to see cartoon bears with toilet paper bits on their asses.


To be bummed that Brothers & Sisters got cancelled. I really liked the show. Also, The Event was cancelled but I hear another network might pick it up. (Coughs, SyFy, coughs…come on…)


To hope I don’t get lost in New York City. When I return from Texas, I’m going there with my best friend for a few days. No kids. It means more planes though. Gulps.


To want to see Bridesmaids. It looks hilarious. Plus it has Suki from Gilmore Girls in it although she plays an entirely different character in the movie.

-------------------

And good news! Tom got his orders to Oklahoma. So we’re moving next month.

Bring on the panic.

  1. yay on the move!! Is the walk-in closet still included??

    I've never gotten a manicure either. Something that sets me apart from 99% of my friends, but oh well! I don't like the smell of those places and every nail salon in my town has employees that don't speak English. I'm always afraid they'll be talking about me and I won't know it. :o)

  2. I don't know what to think of the whole two and a half men thing.

    The Bridesmaids. Funniest movie ever. The girl from Gilmore Girls was my favorite. Be prepared to laugh you butt off

  3. New York! So jealous! I don't get manicures either, it's all Nail Art here, and I just don't need little diamonds glued to my nails. Good luck with the packing!

  4. Congrats on getting orders!! I'm jealous. I'm so ready to leave the awful state of Ohio. (I hate the weather).
    My son immediately says, "Mmmm" when we enter the McDonald's parking lot, even if its for the RedBox. Lol.

  5. Wow, you have a crazy-busy month ahead of you!

  6. Good luck on the move! Yay for walk-in closets!

    I want to see Bridesmaids, too!

  7. Does that mean it's okay to never want to fly in a plane? If so, sign me up.

    I flew in one when I was a baby to Germany and back, but I have no memories of it. Thank God!

    Moving? Exciting! :o)

  8. I'm a nail biter too. I haven't had a manicure in at least ten years. I love pedicures though

    I love taking my kids to McDonalds, it's not like we go everyday. It would be a different story if you took your kids there everyday.

    ReplyDelete
  9. yay for the move! And I'm dying to see Bridesmaids too!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think Ashton Kutcher replacing Charlie Sheen was interesting too.. not sure i'm going to watch the show with him on it... and agreed about the Charmin commercials! I guess there is no really great way to advertise toilet paper, but those are just ridiculous sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  11. YAY! on the move! Wonderful new house with walk-in closets! Oh and Tommy gets to start school on time. :)

    I want to see Bridesmaids too.

    ReplyDelete
  12. COngrats on the move! YAY!

    I wanted Zev adn Justin to win so badly too! I was cringing as they got waxed that last leg...holy cow!

  13. Hooray about Oklahoma!!! :)
    Brothers and Sisters is getting cancelled?! I loved that show, but I missed a few episodes about 2 seasons back, and never caught up.. It's got to be my fault, I JUST stopped recording them :( I am so sorry!
    ***They're making a new Men in Black??!!! What would I do if I didn't read blogs? I would know NOTHING!
    Good Luck with the flights!

  14. What?! Brothers and Sisters got cancelled? How do I miss this stuff?

    I want to see Bridesmaids too!

  15. Congrats on everything working out, you sound excited about it, so that's great! you are so open to change! I need to be more like you. if my husband came to me and said we were moving - I wouldn't be okay with it, I'd have a million questions about it and I would pratically have to be talked into it. haha so i'm just saying props to you for being so open and receptive to change! and I'm like you, I HATE flying, any sort of movement or bouncing makes me so nervous!!

  16. Glad Tom got his orders.

    I think that Ashton Kutcher will be an interesting addition. I can't imagine him being anything but a "role model" for the kid. Can you imagine?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Those Charmin commercials make me cringe. Gross.

    And I don't really get manicures because I pick at my cuticles.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I hope the move goes smoothly - and the kids like Oklahoma as much as you like the walk-in closet.

    I hope even moreso, that Tom's homecoming is a joyous event and comes soon.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yay! Walk in closet here you come :)

    And I am also interested by Ashton replacing Charlie. Excited to see how it goes.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yey for moving! Happy packing! You'll be in a real crunch with Texas and New York on the agenda. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Glad that you now have a plan and can move forward!

    I SO want to see Bridesmaids! I love Suki!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I am SUPER unimpressed about Brothers and Sisters. And I also want to see Bridesmaids with Suki :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Love it all!!! Yay for the orders! You have a busy busy month ahead of you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. that movie is getting crazy good reviews!

    ReplyDelete
  25. So glad the papers came through!! And I never get a manicure either... I will sit there and chip all the paint off my nails. It makes my nails feel dirty.

    ewww... lol

    ReplyDelete
  26. Congrats on the move! Walk in closets, here Amber comes! :)

  27. i wanna see bridesmaids too! have fun in NYC

    ReplyDelete
  28. OMG - Brothers and Sisters was cancelled? I love that show!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I want to see Bridesmaids and Something Borrowed. Bring on the chick flicks.
    I so miss Gilmore Girls. TV just isn't the same without Lorelai and Rory.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Yay! Congrats on the move! I really wanted Gary and Mallory to win the Amazing Race. I really want to see Bridesmaids too!

    ReplyDelete
  31. 3 thoughts/questions:

    1. Does this mean he's coming home early?

    2. Do you also have the theme song to Oklahoma running through your head?

    3. Suki is on Mike and Molly. It cracks me up.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh, I'm glad those orders came through. The services are usually so bad with the "hurry up and wait" thing.

    As for McD's, wake up and smell the denial sweetie. It IS bad for you. Tastes good, but nothing of nutritional value there ... sorry. And yeah, I partake of it myself. Just don't fool yourself, it's not healthy.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Whoa! Yay on the big move!! So glad it happened -- clearly you were meant to have walk in closets. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hey, it's okay to no like to fly! Great posting idea. Look forward to more. Come visit when you can and join in the give-away!

  35. To think it’s interesting that they choose to replace Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men with Ashton Kutcher.

    I don't get it either. Not my cup of tea. I've always liked the darker older man, not the idiot younger man.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Congrats on the move!

    I wanted Zev and Justin to win too! Good Lord I (almost) felt their pain in that Brazilian Waxing Parlor! It was just mean to subject them to THAT before eliminating them!

    I've gotten acrylic nails several times. But I'm a nervous nail biter and I have cracked, broken, chewed off, and generally destroyed them repeatedly! Finally gave up except for special occasions!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I haven't had a manicure for the same reason. I can get pedicures though!!

    And yay for orders!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. You made me laugh out loud with the Charmin bit! I've always thought that was a weird commercial. Have you seen the diaper one with the "Boom! There it is!" and the diaper expands. That is just wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Great news on the Oklahoma move, congrats!

    BTW, I'm not to fond of those Charmin commercials either. I don't see any toilet paper bits lying around the bear dung in my neck of the woods!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I didn't know Brothers and Sisters got cancelled :( I've never really watched much of the show, but decided I liked it and quickly grabbed season 4 in a BOGO deal.

    ReplyDelete
  41. So excited for you!! Hope you get that walk-in closet! I, too, dislike the Charmin commercials. And I didn't even know they were making a MIB 3. Bring on the Will Smith! I hope you don't get molested in the airport..TSA.

    ReplyDelete
  42. How do you find out about all these shows getting cancelled?

    I don't like the Charmin commercials, either!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Men in Black 3?

    I am so out of the loop.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Another exciting chapter in your life! I would love to go to New York again! You will love it.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Amen to the Charmin commercials. Haha. And how exciting about your move!!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Yay, so glad your move is happening soon so that you can get the kids situated in time for BTS! Enjoy New York!

    ReplyDelete
  47. Trying to resist in getting a manicure...been over a year, and a seriously hate spending the money, but taking an hour or so every other day to keep them decent myself-ugh!!!

    Hmmm, I guess since I'm only on season 2 of Brothers & Sisters (love it!!) being cancelled won't matter to me as it will probably take me three years to catch up to the final season....so I have a while yet to enjoy it....yay!

    I agree those TP bits on the bear's butts makes me cringe. WTH??

    Good luck on the move!!

    ReplyDelete
  48. How awesome you get to move!! And, even awesome-er that you get to come to Texas!! (I love my Texas!)

    OMG!!! I can't stand the Charmin commercials either, I don't get them really. So dumb. I think the toilet paper people that put the puppy on their's were way smarter (sarcasm)...but at least he's cute. LOL!

    I don't get manicures or pedicures either. Disgusting and bound to be infested with bacteria. Nasty!!

    ReplyDelete
  49. One of my coworkers said Bridesmaids was hysterical... she also recommends Something Borrowed... and I'm like, "Instead of recommending all these, maybe you could just invite me to go with you!"

    I don't do manicures either... they only last a day even if you don't bite your nails...now pedicures, those I do!

    Getting lost in NYC is part of the fun of going without kids! Have a great trip!

    ReplyDelete
  50. What?! Brothers and Sisters was canceled?! Seriously??!!!!! :(

    ReplyDelete
  51. No shit about the toilet paper commercial...hahaha pun not intended, but man I love being me!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Hate those Charmin commercials too....I always say "Oh God, TMI!".

    ReplyDelete
  53. Ehhh I do McDonald's for dinner sometimes... it's just easy :)

    Happy Birthday to your Nana Jo - that is awesome!!!

    Kind of wondering about the whole Two and a Half Men choice. Should be interesting to say the least.

    Oh man, I really REALLY wanted Zev & Justin too... that or the Cowboys.

    I'm not only bummed, I am super pissed they cancelled Brothers & Sisters. Total Crap I say!!!

    I want to see Bridesmaids SOOOO bad. I'm trying to convince my sister to do a movie night once the hubby;s get home from work in the evening & the kids are in bed. I hope it works out before it isn't in theaters anymore.

    Congrats I can't wait to hear more about your move... oh wait I am super behind, you probably already posted about it. Give me another day or so to catch up LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Congrats on the move and Tom coming home.. BUT... Brothers and Sisters got cancelled??? Must google that!
