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.





Hey, It's Okay....




....to be going on vacation next week! We're headed to Gettysburg, Williamsburg, and North Carolina.



....to finally be able to pick up a copy of The Handmaid's Tale from the library. I was number 200 on the wait list about two months ago.



....to be nearly done watching the latest season of Orange Is The New Black. It's okay but I'm kind of over the whole riot thing.



....to have inwardly cheered during Cersei's revenge towards the woman who killed her daughter. I know she's crazy mean and all, but if I could get away with it, I'd probably do the same if anyone hurt my kids.



....to wish people would present me how Daenarys Stormborn was. "The mother of dragons, ruler of such and such, healer of such and such..." I could be presented as, "This is Amber, mother of two, whose epidural was turned down for her first child so she suffered the pains of childbirth and felt the ring of fire, cleaner of barf, guardian of two cats which she rescued from a shelter, reader of many books."


....to have tried the new confetti cheesecake at The Cheesecake Factory.

  11. Haha... I was totally over the riot on Orange is the New Black too. It was so tiring. I also agree with you about Cersei. As much as I don't like her, I wanted justice for Marcella too!

  33. I can understand what you mean by doing what Cersei did to the Dornish woman. I would do anything to protect my daughter. Hope you have an amazing time out in Gettysburg. And as for the titles that the mother of Dragons has, it just seems all a bit much now. I was thinking about what Jon Snow much be thinking. How would he relate to any of those? Before she was in Westeros, all those titles meant something because they were things she did there. Now she is no longer there, I am not sure they mean as much.
