It’s Okay #47

It’s okay…

…that I’ve done a bit of shopping on Amazon using some saved up gift cards. Deals on future party gifts!

…that Gabbie went to a birthday party on Sunday where the invite stated “no gifts” and to bring food donations for the food pantry, and yet I somehow didn’t realize that and sent gifts, not food.

…that a few weeks ago, I inadvertently participated in revealing someone’s pregnancy to her parents. She was showing them a photo on her phone of her son wearing a “big brother” shirt and her mom couldn’t figure out what it said, so I blurted out, “It says ‘big brother’!” Luckily my help was fine with everyone.

…that the father of said pregnant woman happens to be Dave’s boss.

…that it was supposed to snow on Saturday and the kids were so excited. It flurried.

…that I knit a hat for Zachary and when I finished I realized I’d used the wrong size needle and it was way too small. Now I’m being lazy about starting over, but he really needs a hat! Too bad he lost the one I made him last year. I also want to make him some new mittens!

…that I really don’t care about Beyonce’s sister getting married. Up until a few months ago I didn’t even know she had a sister.

…that after I finished binge watching Castle, I decided to start Outlander. I heard it is wonderful, but after 2 episodes I’m only semi-interested.

…that this week’s Homeland made me say “Oh my God!” out loud. And I was alone in the house.

Looks like I had a lot to say this week. How about you?

You just reminded me I do have Anazon gift cards to spend and sounds like a busy but great week though 😉

I love Homeland. I'm still on season 3 though. I know he dies. I'm sad. I watched the first episode of Outlander and couldn't get into the show at all. You should watch The Mentalist. That's a good show.

I keep trying to tell myself that it's ok that I didn't see the Starbucks Groupon until now and it's now sold out...but it's really not ok. I'm pissed!

Um, Beyonce's sister got married? This is the first I've heard. Clearly I care. :)
I've been keeping an eye on the weather at home - SO COLD!!!

I love online shopping! So fun to get surprises in the mail I don't think I'm coordinated enough to knit but I used to crochet. It would be fun to make hats and gloves for people.

it was!

Dara said...

yeah, I still have more! thanks to blogging and swagbucks!

Dara said...

I know!

Dara said...

him dying is the worst. I hated that. I like the show less now, but it's really about Carrie, so I guess it's ok. I'm still watching Outlander but I'm not sure why! I've never watched the Mentalist!

Dara said...

aw, I'm sorry. I got it when it first came out.

Dara said...

lol, pop culture gossip is fun though!

Dara said...

I love online shopping too. I'm not coordinated for things like sports, but I'm good at knitting - go figure!
