Can’t you just hear Charlie Brown saying, “Oh, Good Grief” ? Since noon yesterday, a whole lot of those type of expressions have fallen out of my mouth..
“Oh, great!” – Couldn’t find my shoes.. I looked everywhere! The clock was ticking and I needed to get the laundry hung.
“Oh, silly me!” -found my shoes by the door..surprised they weren’t on my feet!!
“Oh, Dom!”—Dom is short for Domino, my black lab, who was entirely too excited to see me with a load of laundry. He insisted on jumping on me.. now that would have won $10,000 on America’s Funniest Videos!!
“Oh, My!!” —screeched under my breath as I noticed the price tag on some slacks..it is obvious from my wardrobe and the eye-opener that I haven’t been shopping in a while.
“Oh, Good God!”-wait before you get all “you-said-God’s-name-in-vain” on me… it was an honest plea when I saw myself in the dressing room mirror. I needed some Jesus to get through the pile of clothes I was trying on. Came up empty handed clothes wise but a lot of good material for a future speech! Love a good laugh!!
“Oh, Good Heavens!”-was screamed when I realized in the dressing room I have become my mother!
“Oh, now this is too much!”-was yelled when I realized in the dressing room I have become my grandmother!!
“Oh, ((sniff)) dear”-was mumbled when I realized in the dressing room that I am no longer 20 something and hip…see using the word “hip” is a clue that I ain’t hip any more!!!
“Oh, well”-I gave up on new clothes… perhaps another day!!
“OH, ((((BEEEEEEPPPP)))))!!!!”— just messing with ya.. didn’t want you to get too bored by this wish-I-was-younger-cheap-never-goes-shopping-oh-good-golly-post…did I just hear you say, “((((((BBBBEEEEEPPPP)))”? This is a wholesome blog, have ya know!!
“Oh Come On!”-when the lady cut me off as I was getting into the school traffic to pick up the carpooling kids.
“Oh, I am so sorry”-I made a parenting boo-boo and snapped out of my own frustration in front of every kid in my van—carpoolers and all. Guess if anything good came out of the snap was the fact that the kids see me as human and we, humans, sometimes make mistakes.
“Oh, man”-was stated when I finally got home and took a nap load off.
“Oh, Oh, OH!” –was uttered when I realized I had been asleep and dinner wasn’t ready.
“Oh, Goody”-was joyfully yelped when Mark said, “Let’s go out.” I believe I danced a little jig!!
“Oh, say it isn’t so!”-was expressed when I looked at the clock this morning..I was enjoying the cool morning curled up under the covers…5 more minutes please was the plea I made with the snooze button.
“Oh, hurry up!” -echoed in our house this morning. The 5 minutes proved to be a huge mistake especially when I forgot Mark was driving the carpool this morning!
“Oh, wow!”-was whispered when the house fell quiet at 7:30 am. Kids’ gone, Mark gone, and it is just me and the girls (Ginger, our spaniel and Prissy, our cat). I opened my email from someone I admire in the speaking ministry world..she is praying for me this week as I prepare for Friday night’s speaking engagement.
“OH GOOD GRIEF!!”-was stated in disgust when I realized that today isn’t the 28th! My Freezer Challenge ends on the 28th and yesterday I had a brain fart thinking that today TUESDAY is the 28th! So, Good Grief, ya’ll.. the freezer challenge will be ending tomorrow! TOMORROW I will give away the cookbook! TOMORROW..peeps TOMORROW! I am not yelling at you.. I am just stressing it loudly and boldly to myself so I won’t forget..perhaps I need a calendar! Please forgive the mix-up…I’m gonna chalk it up to “pre-shopping distress syndrome.”
“Oh, Lord”-was prayed today..give us serenity, give us peace, Oh, Lord, God you are a sun and a shield.Oh Lord, you bestow on us your favor and honor…Oh, Lord, thank you for giving blessings to those who walk with you..[based on Psalms 84:11]
