Hey, It's Okay Thursday

So I got this idea from a fellow blogger who in turn got it from Glamour magazine.  Basically, any Thursday that I'm able, I'm going to write a list of things to be okay about.  Feel free to do the same on your blog--any day of the week!

Hey, It's Okay...

To expect never to own a Kindle or any of it's ilk.  Part of the ambiance of reading a good story is cuddling up with an actual book.  I don't even like hardcover books that much because it doesn't feel the same as a well-worn paperback.

To wonder what it is about Target that makes my debit card so slutty.  No matter what I do, it just keeps putting out.

To realize I need to keep a pen and paper on the nightstand next to my bed so all those great blog ideas I have while trying to fall asleep don't disappear by morning.

To seriously consider making a comfortable corner in my basement for all the tornado warnings I'm expecting out of Kansas.  We had our first one yesterday, and that was a pretty boring, uncomfortable hour.   Safe but boring.

To feel the need to possibly restrict myself access to the library.  Or use it as a reward.  Because last week I wrote two whole pages in my novel.  That's it.  Reading is getting in the way of writing.  Oh, irony how I hate you.


  1. Love this idea ( and may have to 'borrow' it!) and so glad to know that my Visa is not alone in its addiction to Target ( called "Tar-Jay" by my daughter, lol).

  2. those first 3? i feel ya sister. i don't live in kansas, and am not awesome enough to WRITE a novel, however i am very familiar with time moving faster while reading. because it does. =)

    i like this idea!

  3. :) Thank Amber over @ for this awesome idea! (she's super amazing!). Justine, I'm hoping I'M awesome enough to write a novel...because I feel like it's never going to get finished!
