hey it’s okay tuesday

It’s Tuesday. Which means it’s “It’s Okay Tuesday” over at another brilliant Amber’s blog. And you know what? there are a lot of things I’m trying to be okay about this week.

So I’m going to play along.

This week, it’s okay:

To tell your husband to give the kid a bath so you can have a precious 30 minutes to yourself.

To wish you were the kind of parent who’s comfortable giving a kid Benadryl  just so you can get a little shut eye.

To wonder if you’ll ever stop whining about lack of sleep.

To be really annoyed at the political climate.

And to be even more annoyed at the political person you’re being forced into becoming.

To hope Rush Limbaugh is reincarnated as a woman.

To wonder who all those crazy people on YouTube are. And to wish you could send them your laundry to fill up their obviously too empty hours.

To feel vaguely guilty about your lack of potty training progress. But kind of relieved that you don’t have to deal with hourly potty breaks just yet.

To really like green smoothies. But like chocolate cake even more.

To like the idea of exercising more than the actual act of exercising.

To dream of creating the Perfect Birthday Party for your daughter. But be pretty sure you’ll settle for generic invites and a box mix cake instead.

To really wish you could go sit in a tanning bed. Even though you know you’d just burn in 30 seconds flat.

To snort derisively at the silly sorority girls hanging out in short shorts in 60 degree weather while stifling a pang of jealousy at their still perfect bodies.

To wish you had gone on a real Spring Break. Until you remember how much you hate crowded bars. Especially bars filled with drunk college kids.

To hope your daughter never, ever goes on Spring Break. Ever.

To kind of wish you could home school your daughter until graduate school. But then remember you can’t do math.

To be ready to end a blog post before it’s really done. Just so you can close your eyes for five minutes…

You’re still here? I told you I was done.

Okay, then you tell me. What are you okay about this week?

It’s Time For…Hey It’s Okay Tuesday!

by Amber on August 16, 2011

What do you do when you have lots of little thoughts wandering around in your head? Nuggets that need a home, but aren’t worthy of a whole blog post? If you’re me, you link up with Airing My Dirty Laundry for Hey, It’s Okay Tuesday!

This week, it’s okay to:

Hope that your finally potty training toddler doesn’t realize she has to pee one more time just as you put her to bed.

Think that your finally potty training toddler makes that request on purpose so she doesn’t have to go to bed.

Experience unreasonable cravings for McDonalds that can only be satisfied with a Quarter Pounder Meal.

Feel unreasonably disappointed three bites into your quarter pounder when you realize it’s not as good as you remember.

Start hoping for fall the minute the temperature falls beneath 80 degrees.

Remain unable to wrap your head around the fact that kids now return to school in the middle of the summer.

Feel completely drained for an entire week after returning home from BlogHer.

Start wishing for another vacation two hours after returning from BlogHer.

Decide that getting started with Google + just seems like too much work right now.

Feel like a cranky old lady for not wanting to invest in Google + right now.

Wonder why Klout thinks you’re influential about magic.

Wish you actually knew how to do magic.

Wonder why exactly you used to think David Copperfield was so cute.

Decide that it must have been his magical powers.

Hope that your toddler doesn’t wake up at 4 o’clock in the morning again.

Promise yourself that if she does wake up at 4 o’clock, you won’t get up.

Know that you actually will not only get up, but end up spending the rest of the night with her snuggled up next to you in her favorite recliner.

Decide you need to invent some sort of miracle cure for under eye circles.

Wonder why no one has done that already.

Shrug your shoulders and take another slug of wine, deciding to log off your computer and subject your husband to another episode of Glee.

That’s what I’m okay with today. How about you?
