It’s Okay #20

It’s okay…

…that I haven’t done an it’s okay post in a few weeks. And for the next two weeks I won’t be posting on Tuesdays, so no it’s okay posts coming up for a few weeks after this.

…that I cleaned out the refrigerator even though we have a totally separate Passover refrigerator downstairs.

…that I convinced Dave that we shouldn’t clean the living room until next week because my kids insist on eating in there.

…that we’ve been invited out for many of our Passover meals and I’m very excited to spend time with our friends.

…that I don’t know what I’ll be posting about on Sundays after Scandal ends for the season.

…that Simon is off this week on Thursday and Friday and I need to figure out what to do with him to keep him busy.

…that Zachary acted up at the doctor last week…at least she got to see some of his behaviors.

…that I’m having Zachary evaluated for ADHD even though his teacher doesn’t think that’s what the problem is.

…that one of Simon’s teachers just shared this adorable picture of him in his Purim costume, and he was the Shabbat Abba (Daddy) last week, and look at him blowing bubbles!

…that I obviously think my kid is the cutest kid ever.

…that I get a lot of requests to post certain things on my blog, but when I tell the person my fees, they never reply.

…that I think it’s very cool that the author of the book commented on my review of Black Chalk.

…that one of my frames fell off the wall and broke a mirror on the way down. I shouldn’t worry about bad luck, right?

I totally am playing with Sundays and Tiesdays myself right now. I rarely ever post on Sundays tend find I may just post light, sponsored content on Tuesdays if I do post at on all on that day of the week. So, can truly relate and I think sometimes it is just nice to just step away for a bit when we can 😉

What are you going to do with your Thursday nights now?!

I totally feel you on the posting things for free. Drives me nuts. They wouldn't expect an advertising agency to do it for free, so why should we? And I'm not posting as much this week or next week either because work is so insane right now.

Aw, well I'll miss your Tuesday posts!


Cute photos!


Yes, I've given companies my fees and sometimes I don't get a response, or I get a, "Really? You want to charge me?" Um. Yes. I do a lot of free stuff, mainly for military posts, but, I mean, I'm not doing EVERYTHING for free.

This might be a silly question… Forgive me in advance… Can you explain a Passover fridge?

Dara said...

I might not post on sundays for awhile, but my weekend views are pretty low so I like having something there!

Dara said...

we have a whole separate kitchen actually. :)

Dara said...

cry?

Dara said...

yeah, I know. I wish the leads would produce more though!

Dara said...

I wish I could get more paid posts after I tell them my fees!

Dara said...

don't feel badly! lol. For Passover we have to clean out everything entirely of bread products, etc, and some people separate their fridge by putting Passover products in one part and the things they can't use on Passover in the other, but I just use my extra fridge for Passover and keep the other fridge closed off for the week of the holiday.

A separate Passover fridge - how smart! And also, going out to dinner during Passover. Also awesome. I remember my parents scrambling to keep us kosher when we were kids. I was very, very hungry.

I should clarify that when I mentioned going out for meals, those meals will be at other people's houses, not restaurants! as a kid, it was always hard to find what to eat on Passover. I find it much easier now.
