It's Okay Tuesday






Airing My Laundry, I know you've read about this great little blog! Well, she just reminded us that It's Okay Tuesday, the opportunity to list the items of the day (week, month or year) that it's okay to be okay with.

1. It's okay that I'm having a hard time whittling down the guilt and shame list to a it's okay list!

2. It's okay that I'm blogging instead of hanging up the laundry on my bed.

3. It's okay that my mom's health is scaring the hell out of me and I don't know what to do to help.

4.  It's okay that I rented a one bedroom cabin for our family reunion this summer, not one of the 2, 3 or 4 bedroom cabins that everyone else is renting because.....

5. It's okay that I want to be alone with my husband at night.

6.  It's okay that I skipped juicing this morning because, well, because!

7.  It's okay that I taught my 20 month old great-granddaughter to dust the furniture. She was doing it anyway but now it's with a dust cloth and not sweet potatoes.

8.  It's okay that I don't answer the door when someone uses the doorbell.

9. It's okay when I watch Supernatural with my granddaughter and make fun of Sammy.

10.  It's okay that I'm going to be okay with all of this tomorrow even though it's Wednesday and not It's Okay Tuesday...well, except for the laundry part. I will hang up the laundry. I will hang up the laundry. I will hang up the laundry. I will hang up the laundry. I will hang up the laundry.

    1. Isn't laundry always waiting? Seems to me the minute the towels are folded there are six more in the laundry basket...or bathroom floor!

    1. Dennis Leary says that the trouble with words is that one never knows whose mouth they've been in. Is that why you use the very minimum?

      Thank you for visiting.

    1. She is doing well. She's in love with my husband, he makes her tea and warms her blankets in the dryer! He is her hero!

  5. it's ok that I don't feel very sociable right now (winter SAD).

    it's ok to say that my boss is a PITA (right before his vacation).

    it's ok that I am 61.5.

    1. Try full spectrum bulbs in your lamps! Sure helped me. I'm not inspired to kill people towards the end of winter since I started using them. But, it's okay if you don't feel sociable any day of the week but especially Tuesdays!

      I think it's awesome that you are 61.5! Best decade ever. All of a sudden you wake up and your truly don't give a shit what other people think! (not that I think you ever had that syndrome!)

  7. Forget about the laundry till Friday. The wrinkles are settled and it doesn't make a difference if you hang them up now or another day.

  8. I like this idea, really quite a lot. I can't be bothered going into that cold, cold basement to start the laundry tonight... and that's okay!

    2. Laundry never stops! Why aren't there 'laundry fairies' who sneak into the house at night and do laundry and start the coffee?

  10. Doggies loves laundry. We run downstairs, we goes outside, we get a cookie after we bark at the squirrel!

    1. Rex loves chasing the squirrels in our yard. Couldn't care less if he sees them on the River Trail. He totally ignores other dogs, feral cats, bicyclists, other walkers and squirrels! But those varmints better stay out of his yard!!!
