Get Over It Day


"Get Over It Day was created by Atlanta entrepreneur Jeff Goldblatt, he chose March 9 because it is halfway between Valentine's Day and April Fools' Day. It's a day to take past hurt, humiliation or disappointments and just "Get Over It!"

Margie: Lawsy me, folks, here's a day named for Edna. My sister never gets over anything. Never!

If you don't believe me then just ask Edna what happened when she was 10 years old. Poor Grandma told Edna there was no Tooth Fairy and Edna hit the roof. She's prone to do that.

Edna: Unlike my snotty sister, I'm not going to go digging up the past and telling tales on folks. She's got plenty to get over in the here and now. If I hear her whine and complain one more time about how she thinks I never do any work around here, well...she'll really see me hit the roof then.

Margie: Edna, you know I do all the work and that's why you lie on me. Well, you can get over it. Today and every day. Why don't you go to your room and play Time Out?

Edna: You know what, you old goat? Why don't YOU get over it? I swan, you're not happy unless you start the day with some imagined complaint or another.

I'll give you a time out all right; come here Margie, I've got a nice knuckle sandwich for you.

Margie: And I've got nice grits you can kiss.

Well ladies it seems like we all have something to get over. Go over to Grandmother Wrens and listen to her song.

Getting over it leaves us free to just enjoy. Speaking of which, I got over it that the Margiedales are staying with Margie. I hold no grudges and am thankful for the time I do have to spend with them - all at once :D

I think every day needs to be Get Over It day! Well, maybe we could make it every other day at least!

Margie and Edna said...

Margie: Thanks, Grampy. I liked that.

Poe, I got over you not sending me eyeshadow like Carmen does. My boys love me in that stuff.

Lynne, I'm with you.

Sounds like we all need some more practice with "Get Over It"

On the other hand, I was telling my clutter I was "So over it" this morning. Time to clear things out - as "get over it" is also a clearing.

Margie, Carmen takes all of my eyeshadow so I can't send you any :)
