It’s Ohh-kayyy

The Whispering Writer does a fun little thing on her blog on Tuesdays.  It’s not a “meme” per say, and there is no link up, but you should check out her blog anyways!!  Over at Airing My Dirty Laundry (one sock at a time), she says:

“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.”

And since she doesn’t care what day I do this, I pick today!  Hey…her “not-meme”, HER rules!

So, without further ado….

It’s O-kay…..

To get all freaked out when the 2 year old is walking along the cut up trees in our backyard.  It’s not like he’ll fall and crack his head on one of the other logs or anything….and he certainly won’t trip and and knock out a tooth, but hey, it’s ok to cringe, just a little.


To feel special when you are handed a boat-load of $1 off coupons from one of your favorite workers at your favorite coffee shop. 


It’s ok to sit in the bathtub with bubbles all around, Diet Coke on the ledge, iPod in hand and scream your head off for politely ask everyone who is on the other side of the door to SHUT THE FUCK UP so you can relax already.

It’s ok to be 2,000 miles OVER the mileage at which you were supposed to get an oil change.  Especially if you have a spouse, because that’s his job, no??

It’s ok to have lost a brain cell or two and not be able to count out $3.89 in change just because you usually hand the fella 4 one dollar bills.  It IS okayyyyyy!  This does NOT mean you have a tumor!!

It’s ok to be pissed at your doctor for putting you on a medication that may or may not cause swelling in your arms and legs.  Especially when he KNOWS your fear of weight gain. 

And it’s ok to take yourself OFF this said medication as you call your doc a Muther Trucker!!

It’s ok to roll your eyes when your patient continually answers your questions as if you’ve asked her something totally different, and then repeatedly DENY she needs a hearing aid. 

It’s also ok to think the spouse needs a hearing aide…yet….NOT one of these:


So….it really IS ok!!  Just ask The Whispering Writer!!

Have an awesome weekend, and if you don’t?? 

It’s Oh-Kayyyyyy!!!

HA! This is great. Love the idea. Too bad I've missed out on lots of your posts. Your blog disappeared from my Google Reader and I found you from a comment on an old blog post.
This was hilarious. Love that hearing aid...:)
