Hey, It's Okay Thursday

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 be depressed that I cannot drink coffee anymore because of my heart condition.  I've been looking forward to Pumpkin Spice lattes from Starbucks for months, and now I can't even drink them.  It's enough to make a person curse the Fates. 

To be very excited for Halloween.  Evie is starting to understand what holidays are, and is very into Halloween right now.  We're going to decorate the house and go to the Pumpkin Patch.  And I'm making Evie's costume.  It's going to be a blast! 

To have already started Christmas shopping.  I know that it's three months away, but if I find good deals, why pass them up?  Besides, Evie's birthday is only three weeks after Christmas, so I might as well buy her birthday presents during all the Christmas sales too. 

To really hate potty training.  Evie is 32 months now so we should really be working on it, but she has no interest whatsoever.  How do you potty train someone who can look you in the eye as she pees on the floor in front of you?  I'm clueless.

To be so excited that it is starting to finally feel like Fall.  Evie even wore a sweater the other day!


  1. Found you thru MilSpouse Friday Fill-ins. I also have a 32 month old (boy) who I am trying to potty train... and having absolutely no luck. He'll sit on the potty for about ten minutes, get off, then pee on the floor. So I know how frustrated you are! :)

    We've stopped the training. He'll tell me he needs to be changed, but he's content to pee in his pants, so he's still in diapers. I just think if there's no desire to use the potty, then it's useless trying to teach them.

  2. YAY I'm not alone! lol. Yah, I feel pretty much the same way. I'm not going to force her...but I'm really ready for her to just start already!
