I'm linking over from Airing My Dirty Laundry, (<--  link there),  because well this is a Great Idea!! To quote her "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. You're welcome to join in and do something like this on your blog. Doesn't have to be on a Tuesday either. Just make sure you link up and that the post you link up is a Hey, It's Okay Post." 

It's OK to enjoy Gray's Anatomy, and quote it to yourself all the next day (as words you want to live by).
Case in point. (and forgive me for not remembering the exact wording)
"He let go of my hand!" (describing her kindergardner letting go of her his 1st day of school)
"Do you know what happens when they let go of your hand? You get your hand back.  They didn't go anywhere.  They're right there.  You. Get. Your. Hand. Back.  You now have some Free Time.  I don't mean for washing dishes.  Do something for yourself."

It's OK to want to Ball Kick your hubby when he magically grew a pair and actually says "don't make me go get you some midol." 

It's even MORE OK to than walk 3 blocks from home just to call your little sister and vent to her about it.

It's OK to want to start the P90X 90-day challenge for no other reason than to keep you sidetracked for 90 more days that it sucks that your sisters live so far away (and have and will continue to - for a long time).

It's OK to enjoy eating the ice cream straight out of the tub with a spoon, so you can tell youself that 3 small spoonfuls aren't the same as a large bowlful.

It's OK to ignore your leg hair in the winter until which point you can feel it thru your knee socks.  Between the jeans, knee boots and knee socks, it's not like anyone's gonna see it anyways.

It's OK to enjoy watching the Pink ITunes free concert so much that you watch it over and over.. because she really does sum it all up with:
"Sometimes I hate every single stupid word you say
Sometimes I wanna slap you in your whole face
There's no one quite like you
You push all my buttons down
I know life would suck without you
At the same time, I wanna hug you
I wanna wrap my hands around your neck
You're an asshole but I love you
And you make me so mad I ask myself
Why I'm still here, or where could I go
You're the only love I've ever known
But I hate you, I really hate you,
So much, I think it must be
True love, true love
It must be true love
Nothing else can break my heart like
True love, true love,
It must be true love
No one else can break my heart like you
[ From:

e else can break my heart like you
No one else can break my heart like you (like you)
No one else can break my heart like you"

It's OK to be in love with your DVR.  And to tune the kiddos out for 1 hour of Mommy Time while I enjoy my Gray's Anatomy.

It's OK to stop for a minute and realize that God provides.  Last night I was writing up this post and I was feeling a bit irritated (not the right word to describe my emotional status).  Earlier that day I'd asked my Butch what happened to genuine friends (not discounting my sisters - they're Great!)? But what happened to having someone genuinely ask how your day was going?  I'm tired of when the phone call consists of so much negativity you hang up angry for a week!  (I had just ignored a call from That One because I truly can't handle another of those calls!) So right as I finished the "DVR" line I got a call from a close friend that I haven't spoken to much since our move here.  And Little J and I talked for an hour and a half!! She is great about telling me what's going on in her life and always making it a point to ask AND LISTEN about what's going on in mine!  I got off the phone (at one point I was sitting on the floor in the dark in my room and was actually plugged into the wall with the charger) and I felt a ton better.

    Dear Twin... sometimes words come out of my mouth before my brain has a chance to stop them... well aint that the life...


    Some people make parenting look sooo easy.  They are big fat liar pants.  Parenting is hard.  Kids can be awful.  They don't come with an Instruction Manual.  I started young and have grown up with them.  We have gone through a lot together.  And I would have never been able to do it without the wonderful family I have.  I started blogging because of Twin.  She said that it wasn't nice of me to take a Bad Day out on the Hubby or the Brats.  And so this began.... it's my Rantings From The Time Out Corner... because, let's face it - when I'm full on Cranky Pants... my hubby doesn't fail to make me go Sit One Out for the Team.  (for more see ME above)

    I would like your thoughts, help, comments, feedback. I am not a robot!

    No matter how serious life gets, you still gotta have that one person you can be completely stupid with
