I a a bit late today posting for the free week. Since New Year’s Day the internet connection here has been whacky, I don’t mean here in town. Just in the building that I live in. It is my guess that the landlord (who provides the internet) ruined the modem by getting sawdust inside of it. Of course since that belongs to the power company (who will do service calls for FREE when your internet goes down if you go through them) I must believe this is why he refuses to call them to have them come fix the problem. With that being said, everything is patchy. I have not really written in two weeks since my board is on pinterest. A few days ago I started to pull up my pinterest board while the internet was up and working and would then leave it up all day so I would have it when the internet decided to stop working. Anyway that is why I am late today.
Yesterday my daughter informed me that she no longer wanted her long beautiful hair. She does not want to brush it because it tangles to easily. It is too hard to get the knots out of it. She did not want to wait to go to the salon with my mom or my sister and asked me to cut her hair. Hmm, in the middle of cutting her hair I remembered why my oldest son always had a buzz cut, why I refused to cut my youngest son’s hair, and why I decided to shell out the money to go to my dad’s barber for the boys. I CAN NOT cut straight! AT ALL. So she has her short hair and it does not look to bad until the bangs that she decided she wanted. Well it is a bit up and down on there and shorter than I would have liked but she likes it. I told her I would get some curlers and we could curl her bangs under for about three weeks or so until it is just long enough for my sister to trim it up proper and straight.
To go with her new cut she wanted to put blue streaks in her hair. I was alright with this so long as we did not use any chemicals. So no hair dye in boxes. With home made hair color she is now sitting with three things of foil in her hair to keep the blue in for the next several hours. I certainly hope it turns out, if not the stuff I made will rinse out of her hair in 2 weeks at the most and leave her hair its original color. If it does work then next time I told her we are getting a few more supplies so I can do a bit more of her hair and it will not be as difficult as trying to hold the foil in place while applying the color.
My middle child is sore from choreography from the musical. He is excited that he is in it though and does not seem to mind. A bit less than one month to go until the musical, then we can get back to a normal schedule.
That has been the goings on here for the past few weeks. It has really been too cold to go out and do anything. Once again today the wind chill is below zero so it is a day of inside fun. I think the kids are getting sick of that.
I hope you all have a great day.
