Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.





HEY, IT'S OKAY....



.....to think some of the people in my neighborhood are morons. They're still throwing parties or gathering at parks. If you call them out, they claim people are being negative. I'm like ??!! There's a STAY IN PLACE order. Stay home! Duh!



.....to have only been going out for groceries. I'm still searching for toilet paper. A friend did drop off some cheaper quality toilet paper which we'll use if it comes to it, but I'm hoping for the fluffier kind only because you tend to use less of that. I know my kids do for sure.



.....to have also gone out to pick up food for dinner. I am trying to support businesses by doing this. Sadly though, we keep getting our order wrong. I am sure they are overwhelmed, but it makes it frustrating.



.....to be reading a lot throughout all of this. I'm currently reading The Prized Girl by Amy K Green.



.....to have not seen Tiger King yet, but I keep hearing people talk about it.



......to be hanging out with the guinea pigs. Cheddar was relaxing with the Billy Madison Funko Pop the other day.





What are YOU okay about?

20 Responses To I'm Bored From Teens

Oh man, this social distancing thing can be difficult. If you have teens at home, they might announce that they are bored. Yes, there is schooling, but suppose they've finished? Then what?




Here's a list of things they can do if those words are uttered. (Adults as well!)




1. Look up Henry VIII and figure out which of his wives is your favorite

2. Make up a dance (maybe it'll go Tik Tok viral!)

3. Draw something

4. Organize your closet

5. Write a story

6. Act out a favorite part of a movie. (For example? Billy Madison "conditioner is better!")

7. Read a book

8. Flip through old photo albums and learn what life was like in the 90s (no smartphones!)

9. Research a job you'd like to try (yup, doctors really do go to school for that long)

10. Binge watch a show that your mom watched when SHE was in high school (Dawson's Creek?)

11. Do a science experiment (there are easy ones on YouTube)

12. Offer to make dinner (and do the dishes!)

13. Watch Titanic and explain how Jack could have fit on the door with Rose

14. Go on a virtual field trip

15. Clean out your backpack (and scrub out what's growing on the bottom of it)

16. Make a vision board

17. Write an actual letter to a family member (not a text! Use a PEN!)

18. See how many sit ups you can do in a minute

19. Tell your father to stop chewing so loud when he eats

20. Use chalk and write an inspiring message on the driveway.




What do you think you'll try first?

Stop Hoarding The Toilet Paper




For the love of chocolate.

STOP HOARDING THE TOILET PAPER.

I am sick of going down aisles and seeing this:




I am glad that stores are refusing returns on toilet paper. Maybe that'll stop the hoarding. Most stores now only allow one package per house. But when this all started, there were people walking out with carts FULL of toilet paper and I was like:



I mean, did they expect to suddenly poop all over the place? Who needs 1000 rolls of toilet paper? Why not save some for others?


It's gotten to the point where I've joined Facebook groups to find out what stores have toilet paper. But by the time I see the posts, it's too late. I have not seen toilet paper on shelves in about two weeks now. People say in order to find some that you have line up at 5 AM and be there when they open at 8. I mean?



STOP HOARDING THE TOILET PAPER


I never thought I'd see the day when toilet paper was non existent. Do we have to go back to chamber pots? Some people have gotten bidets. I already told the kids if we run out that they'll just have to use the bathroom and jump in the shower.

Maybe the people who have an abundance of toilet paper will start sharing with others? That would be kind. If I find a huge pack, I plan on asking my local neighborhood group if anyone needs a roll.


So have you seen toilet paper on the shelves lately?
