Hey It's Okay Tuesday!

I'm linking up today with the blog "Airing My Dirty Laundry One Sock at a Time" for her weekly posting: "Hey, It's Okay Tuesday"

Here's my list...

Hey it's okay.... That I didn't watch or really give a crap about the Oscars this year. I didn't go see any of the movies (although I do really want to see Les Mis and Lincoln as well as Life of Pi). Plus, they had it on opposite The Walking Dead. Really? Which one did you think was going to win in Karen's house? Zombies of course!

Hey it's okay.... That I have not and am not buying ANY easter candy whatsoever! I'm trying to stay away from that stuff (PMS time does not count).

Hey it's okay.... That I want to crawl into a ball in the corner today...having a bad fibromyalgia flareup and I just want to go home and lay on my heating pad. As a matter of fact, I really need like a full body heating pad if anybody can hook me up.

Hey it's okay.... That I have to figure out how to reconfigure my Nook to my wireless connection somehow. I don't want to call "he who shall not be named" for help, so I've got to figure this out on my own. Wish me luck!

That's pretty much all I've got! Link up if you want with your list!

I once was a Muppet....

I'm hooking up to Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop once again, this time taking on the topic of telling the story of a talent or hobby that I tried to learn that I pursued only briefly.

Well, if you must know, I once was a Muppet. 

I was a McLeansville Muppet - I was a 6 year old soccer player for a team called.....and say it with me, the McLeansville Muppets. 

Now, you guys have no idea about this little secret about me but I'll share this with you - I have absolutely no athletic prowess whatsoever, and I have 2 left feet which are useless in the sport of soccer.  I was the little girl in the long pigtails running away from the ball.  In addition, even with shin-guards, getting kicked in the shins hurt like freakin hell and I was highly averse to pain even in sacrifice to the Soccer Gods. 

I played 2 years as a Muppet, then was old enough to be a Blue Devil.  (yes, I realize they named us after Duke and as a UNC fan that irks me to this day).  I was slightly older, but in a ponytail and still running away from the ball....and begging my parents to let me quit because I FREAKING HATED IT!!!!  I played one year as a Devil, and my parents finally put me out of my misery and allowed my soccer career to come to an end.  I burned my shin guards, chucked my cleats out forever and NEVER PLAYED AGAIN. 

I felt so badly for my teammates to have such a sucky player like me.  They were so frustrated with me, but when you suck as bad as I did....it's really not my fault!  It's like  a deficiency or something with me, lol! 

A huge shoutout tho to we former Muppets:  Tiffany, Mechelle "Howdie", Joanna, Laura Jo (aka, "Red"), Allison, Julie, JJ, Shannon, Tonya, Mandy, Karen, and Alecia.  I know I'm leaving some out....going by an old picture (and no you guys are not seeing it)!  I love my Muppeteers, we were all in school together until the end for the most part so you guys are special ladies!
