Hey its ok - Vol #1

August really insists on flying by doesn't it. Heck its the 12 and this is what, my 5th post for the month? I feel like I blinked and half the month was gone.

Anyhoosle, Some time ago, I did a guest post for Emily when she was on vacation. It was patterned after a regular series in Glamour magazine called 'Hey its ok'. So nope the concept ain't mine! I love that series and I loved writing that first post soooo every now and again I think Ill pop in and do one ... I just wrote 'do one' I crack myself up!

... to decide on a whim to send out a million resumes because you need a change in your job. I don't hate my job, I just want something different, a change if you will.

... to completely fall off your fitness regimen and eat and drink crap two weekends in a row... because weddings. 

... to miss the gym and said fitness regimen 

... to be looking forward to a weekend of no make-up, no pants and sweet TV

... to not care that your birthday is in two weeks because it means you will be 29 freaking years old. Like WTF!

... to turn 29, because no one thinks you look older than 23 anyway ...

... to wonder what the heck you will be doing for said birthday since the last 4 years you spent it with him... who is no longer in your life. I think Ill sleep.

... to miss the intern you bashed relentlessly on the blog ha!

... to be up at 2 am writing a blog post like a crazy person because court is out and you can roll into work tomorrow whenever you wake up. It doesn't happen everyday. It really is ok.

... to be excited to take over a month of vacation from September because you bloody earned it dammit.

... to be completely gutted when an actor passes away especially when you watched a movie he acted in every afternoon after school for maybe a year. Mrs. Doubtfire will always be one of my fave movies. RIP Robin Williams. 

Happy Tuesday Folks!

  1. After vacation I have fallen off the fitness wagon too, hoping to get back today though. We can do it. It sounds like our birthday are close together, we can commiserate and wallow together! ;) So sad about Robin Williams, such a great actor and comedian.

  2. hell yes to a vacation after a hellish stint at work!

    RIP robin williams :( i normally don't bother about celebrity deaths but this one sure was a shocker and a tragedy. we've lost one of the good ones.

  3. no make-up, no pants and sweet TV = fabulous! i love this post, and i love those segments in the magazines as well. i need to get back on the fitness and eating well thing.
    oh robin williams, i am so very very sad. it is ridiculous how sad i am over someone i never met. he was a good egg.

  4. Absolutely yes to ALL of these things. Especially on the job front. I definitely need a change. And hey, eating clean 100% of the time is just unrealistic. Life is short, have the damn cake lol. Speaking of life is short, RIP Robin Williams...I feel like a piece of my childhood has died along with him. I will forever remember him in Jumanji, Patch Adams, Mrs. Doubtfire etc... so very sad. :(

  5. It's definitely OK for all of the above! Where is the intern gone, is he time over already? As for Robin Williams, it's ridiculously sad because he was such a major source of joy growing up, it's terrible that he couldn't internalize the joy he gave out so easily x

  6. Aww we're getting old(er) but birthdays should still be celebrated! Hope you end up doing something fun. A month of vacation? Yes please!! I'm sure it's well deserved.

  7. Birthdays are always a big deal - even if they are spent sleeping! (Sounds like a perfect day to me). So sad about Robin Williams... something about him was so magical. He really was talented.

  8. Mrs. Doubtfire was one of my favorite movies growing up. I really liked him as an actor. I look forward to sweats, no makeup and tv like every second of my life. Really cool post. Thanks for sharing!

  9. No make up no pants weekends are my kind of weekends! Bring on the TV!

    29? Try 31. Crap! I will be "in my thirties" ahhhhhhhhhh.

    RIP Robin Williams :( So sad!!!!

  10. yes to all of these! Happy birthday month!!!! I didn't even know! and omg Mrs. Doubtfire ))))):

  11. Haha "to look forward to no pants..." um YES. It's called 'my house, my way'. RIP Robin for sure. Enjoy sleeping in!

  12. A month of vacation? Hell yes!

    For your birthday, I prescribe a pedicure, a ladies' lunch, and a day at the beach with a great book.

  13. I still haven't fully wrapped my brain around his death.....I stay up that late sometimes as well writing posts....I feel yah girl ;-)

  14. The first and last, especially. Yes. I'm still getting teary-eyed if I stop and think about Robin too long. I full-on ugly cried for an almost embarrassingly long time last night. So many of my favorite traditions and memories from childhood revolve around him and his movies. I was watching his episode of Inside the Actors Studio last night and just lost it. Anyway. Yeah, this one feels extra painful. It's okay.

  15. "to be looking forward to a weekend of no make-up, no pants and sweet TV" You're damn right it's okay! One of my favorite ways to spend a weekend! hahahaha

  16. It is so hard to get back into the swing of things after a vacation!! Good luck on the job hunt!!

  17. This was a fun idea for a post! How do you plan on spending your vacation?? Enjoy your time off!

  18. An entire month of for September? Girl, how do I get licensed there?

  19. Girl! I turned 29 in June. It was hard..especially because everyone I work with is older then me so they were just shrugging it off. This is the oldest I have ever been; let me greave my 20s.

  20. I'm with you on the birthday thing. I never care about getting older and I just realized it's probably because I look perpetually 17 (which is not something I'm usually happy about, so silver lining). A month of vacation?!?! Get it, girl!!!


I read all my comments. Drop me a line! I would love to hear from you! :)
