I have to admit I am still riding the high of ‘my mom is coming next week’ that I kind of keep forgetting I work Saturday after a full week of late nights and jam packed hours. Stress? Who cares, I have 6 days till my mom arrives. Mama’s girl all the way.
Thank you to everyone who tweeted, favorited or texted their congratulations to me. If you didn’t see, I got my second job! I am super pumped and can’t wait to learn more about it and get started. Someone is looking out for me because I sure needed this.
And jumping right in, let’s all savor what makes this day pretty sweet. #TGIF am I right?
It’s ok if… I am actually excited (kind of strong, but let’s say not mad…) that I am waking up at 6 am on a Saturday and working. Heck, I get to train some mentors and put my public speaking skills to the test. I love commanding a room so bring it.
It’s ok if… I buy random squash varieties because a. they are less than a dollar per squash (score!) and b. it is the only thing I can successfully not destroy in my kitchen. Newest try – carnival squash. Kind of like an acorn squash but with more flavor. Yum.
It’s ok if… I desperately need to go grocery shopping but can’t go till Saturday night. I probably won’t do a big haul because my mom will be coming Thursday night and I foresee grocery shops WITH A CAR – thank you moses.
It’s ok if…my sister is getting nicely bronzed as ever in the Turks and Caicos while I remain pasty white. It actually hurts how tan-less I went this year. Real world status hit hard with realizing I now have no summers. I missed you beach. Never even wore a bathing suit this summer.
It’s ok if… the neighborhoods you have to walk in to get to the three night mentor sessions scare the living daylights out of you. I do the old classic pretend to be talking on my phone to make the walk seem bearable. It was even nicer of my co worker to mention that a lot of people got killed around this area in the past year. Oh score.
It’s ok if… I have yet to buy pumpkin. You think after being nearly u-hauled by the blogger pumpkin love lately I would jump on the bandwagon but alas I haven’t. Soon enough, soon enough.
It’s ok if… you laughed, alone and very loudly to the new episodes of The Middle, Modern Family and the Office this week. So quality.
It’s ok if… you desperately want a secret admirer to send you a. an edible arrangement (oh my gosh get at me now) or b. this amazing GF Connect care package. I mean seriously, that would be heaven at my doorstep. I have to step up my game! If you are out there, I would love to have these appear. Please and thank you.
It’ ok if… you cry a little as you hand over both your rent and internet checks at the end of the month. And I am broke yet again. Non profit work woes.
I have a long Friday ahead with one school visit, one skype meeting with the head of BUILD in California and a four hour summit conference. Easy peazy right?
Questions: What is your it’s ok if today? Any fun plans this weekend?
