It's Ok...

It's Ok
Its Ok Thursdays

...That I haven't posted in 3 weeks

...That I got called out by my favorite blogger today for my lack of posts.

...That I do a million blog posts in my head that never make it to the blog (yes, i hear the round of sighs that you are missing out on my random thoughts :)

...That yesterday I thought I was so funny all day.  Do you ever have those days, where you think everything you say and think is whittier and more clever than normal?  Pretty sure it wasn't, but I really found myself pretty laugh out loud hilarious all day!

...That I had to call my dad to come let me in my house last night, because I was locked out.

...That the one day my house was locked my hard working cousin really needed to stop by for a drink of water.  Sorry, Emily, I'm still feeling really bad about that.

... That I really love my nephews, but I will probably be especially nice and giving to them so they will make sure I make it into a nice nursing home when I'm old.

...That I hate paying for big things.  I'm getting a new porch, and while I'm excited about it, I'm also very bummed, because I hate putting out that kind of money.  I need to get my act together, because I'm being a little negative about the whole thing.

...That I hate taking showers.  I really only do it out of social obligation or not wanting to smell myself.  It's just such a time taker (I've never mastered quick showers), and then hair, yuck, I just don't have the patience

...That my house is cleaner and straighter than it's been in a while thanks in large part to my mom who helped me get it that way, and this verse I came across in the past week that has convicted me to put in the effort to keep in that way  "These older women must train the younger women to love their husbands and their children, 5 to live wisely and be pure, to work in their homes,[b] to do good, and to be submissive to their husbands. Then they will not bring shame on the word of God." Titus 2:4-5 NLT (when I read that, I thought, seriously, the Bible tells me to keep my house clean?!?!?!)

...That I am still bummed over the closing of the full service gas station.  While I don't like to pay for big things, I will gladly pay and extra $1 for someone to pump my gas for me.  Lazy, maybe so, but I would.

...That I'm rediculously excited about high school football starting next week!!  Woo-hoo!!

...That this time of year makes me almost giddy, football, horse shows, county fair, I just love it!

....That I've seen almost every hour of the Olympics that NBC has aired.  Let me just say, this takes determination and no life, and a few days off work.  Luckily for me, that's what I've had in the past couple of weeks.  My sister and I were talking last night, and being determined to watch it all is almost exhausting.  Grant it, it only comes around every 4 years, but I'm about ready for it to be over.  That's the way I like to do things.  Saturate yourself until you are glad to see it end.

...To be thinking about putting out a personal ad for additional friends.

...To forget the night you signed up to take your new mom friend supper.  Yes, I need to actually use that calendar app on my phone or the nice planner that rides around in my car.

I'm really going to do better.

I cannot tell you how many times I have checked for a new post from you. Of course I'm no better, and I have a list of posts... I saw you were having some work done on the house. I was curious but too tired to really concentrate as I tried to run by.
