Responsibility stinks! :P

After much counsel from a good friend and fellow Blogger I thought it best to delete my first blog. I know it is easy to get caught up in writing out what you are thinking and feeling, but people you don't think about reading it may one day come across it, so... It will be deleted soon after I finish this post.

Responsibility really does stink some times though! I mean, here I am having just finished up a second Job I had gotten over the Christmas holiday season. They needed me to stay on till a certain job was finished and I did, but man was I tired. I had not had a day off since Christmas day because if I wasn't at Chickfila I was working the other job. Honestly I don't count Christmas as a day off because we have so much traveling we do. Then there is Sunday, which I have off each week (thankfully) but I don't consider Sunday a day off either. So anyway, Back to responsibility. I have now finished the second job and I am off tomorrow from Chickfila. Do I get to sleep in (which I don't get to do anymore)? NOOO, I have to wake up and get the kids off to school. Responsibility. Do I get to lay around all day and watch tv and sleep all day? NOOO, because I have to clean up my nasty house AND do the grocery shopping. Responsibility. I have far to many things to do. Being responsible stinks! :oP

I say we all rebel and take tomorrow off to do nothing!!! Who's with me? (This is were I hear the crickets chirping.)

Hair Jewelry

My 16 year old daughter has been growing her hair out for a while now. She looks a lot like an Indian with her long dark hair and her beige complexion. At the beginning of this school year she decided she would allow her hair to grow a little more and then donate a full 10 inches. She planned to wait till the summer, but when we went to get her a trim tonight she decided it was time. Watching her sit in that chair and make such a nice gesture was so wonderful. Her hair in much shorter now but it looks so cute, just like her. And someone out there will be able to use the hair she gave to feel better about themselves as well. What a great example of Love. Doing something for someone you don't even know and may never meet. A VERY cool thing to witness.

She was commenting on the silver hairs I am getting at a much more steady pace now. (After my last hair cut I wanted to go back and tell the stylist she has made a terrible mistake, because somehow she managed to cut my hair in such a way that EVERY silver hair is more noticeable.) I was feeling the pressure to cave and color my hair again until my daughter said this," You know mom, I like your silver hair. It looks like (pause) Hair Jewelry." I LOVE THAT!!!!!! Hair Jewelry, it sounds so much nicer than "old hair". ;o)

So from now on when you look in the mirror and wonder if it is time to color or pluck those silver puppies out, just remember they are all natural jewelry for your head.

Where do we go from here?

Welcome to my Blog. Sorry it took me so long to get this thing up and running but I'm slow with this computer stuff. I just leave it all to my hubby! ;o) Don't know what I would do without him!

Have a great day!

I'll write more soon.
