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 have remembered the fallen soldiers yesterday. It seemed so many forgot and were treating it like a giant BBQ or sales, which is sad, but expected for the USA I suppose.



.....to be thinking of putting a ground cedar deck in the backyard. Right now it's just stones, and they look rather blah.



....to be glad that Tommy's high school is still having a graduation. It's smaller, of course, with only a total of 4 guests allowed. It'll go by last name, and those people will go to the auditorium at the school and the graduates can walk the stage. Masks will be required and temperatures checked, which is fine by me. I'm glad it's not just virtual.



....to be tempted to by The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes (the Hunger Games prequel) but I might wait for the library to open. I have so many books! But I have no clue when the library will reopen.



.....to think it's cute that Natalie loves Tik Tok so much that she wanted a Tik Tok Jibbitz for her Crocs. (I believe they are sold out now. We bought it because the proceeds went to a good cause.)

  14. I hope the graduation is everything he wanted, even if it is small. My nieces love tik-tok at the moment and it's one of the only ways we can stay connected with them.

  15. So lucky he gets a "real" graduation!! We're in NYC so still on lock down, but we've had fun cheering on some high schoolers who arranged a car processional graduation - the whole senior class decorated their or their parents' cars and drove them down a main road, all honking and cheering and hanging out of sun roofs. It brought tears to my eyes, so special!!

  16. We have a stone patio as well and are thinking more about going for a ground level deck. I love those Croc slides!

  21. What a fun idea for a post! I haven't joined Tiktok yet... am I the only one? LOL

  22. I like this idea for catching all the little and big things happening! So great you get to have a graduation!

  23. This seems like a good idea, and yes in a day or a week there are so many things we should just be grateful about that at least they are happening and its OK

  24. I'm glad that the graduates are still going to have that moment of walking across the stage. I can't imagine that a virtual graduation would be the same. I know that a lot of the schools around here are looking at doing something in the fall when they are able to get together again rather than just going virtual.

  25. A smaller graduation sounds like a good choice. I don't know what our local high school is going to do, I think they are still trying to figure it out.

  29. TikTok is pretty fun! My kids often open my TikTok and watch funny videos. Those Crocs are pretty cute!

  30. Great that they wouldn't miss a graduation ceremony. In here, all events are cancelled so it's a bit sad. Congrats to Tommy!

  31. Giving yourself the grace to go through this exercise is so powerful and helps to contribute to a healthy mindset. One of the best lessons I've learned was doing this for myself.
