Hair still a mess!–Updated
Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010


Just back from Nick’s salon. When I walked in, he looked up and said, “What are you bitchin’ about? It’s not that bad.” Until, he actually had his fingers in my hair. Then it was, “Uh, I thought that was a cowlick.” And, “I think I’m gonna have to take some more to even it out.” Good thing is, it’ll grow back. Here are a couple of quick picks. Keep in mind, I’m way tired, my eyes are bloodshot, my glasses are crooked, and I’m wearing my oldest hoodie.

My favorite picture of me—evuh!


Yesterday, I couldn’t find a hair stylist open that I would actually trust. Since I was already dressed, out of the house, and thinking about “improvements”, I had my toes and fingernails done. The pedicure was interesting. I sat in a massage chair (don’t they all have them now?), but this massage chair is very naughty. Not only does it have the rollers that poke and squeeze at your back, but it has a roller that comes up between your butt cheeks. I’m sure my eyes popped wide open the first time it happened.

No writing last night. I babysat the 5-year-old and 1-year-old. The five-year-old is all into Idol, which wouldn’t be so bad if she weren’t completely tone deaf and “auditioning” with Taylor Swift songs. The 1-year-old is practicing to be a Houdini. Every time I turned my eyes away from her, she reached into her onesy and pulled her diaper out her leghole. Then she’d stand gleefully peeing down one leg. Yeah, it was that kind of night.

A friend of mine is running through my big book for me, tearing it apart. She’s through chapter six and so far no huge problems. When she gets to the middle and realizes that there’s a whole lotta naughty goin’ on, she may pull back and say, where’d the story go?

Today, I continue the haircut quest, so I doubt I’ll get much writing done. πŸ˜₯

But y’all wanna know who won yesterday’s contest, right? The random number generator decrees that the #6 entry is the winner, and that lucky person is…Anna Shah Hoque! Anna, email me!

    We are getting alot of snow here in Georgia, how about you? I remember you mentioned how much you love a winter wonderland though it would probably make your quest for a good hair stylist much more difficult πŸ˜› Don’t you hate it when stuff happens to derail your entire week?

    I did some packing for my trip back to China. I leave tommorrow night and arrive on Friday morning. I hope you will have been able to make some progress on your writing by then.

    Pulling the diaper out the leg hole – wow. I’m glad Lilly hasn’t mastered that trick yet. She will be 13 mo on Sat. She is just now walking pretty good. Still has some tumbles and stuff but she’s doing good.

    A good hairstylist is hard to find. They are usually a little more expensive too. I hate to spend a lot on my hair and it’s usually $50 or $60 when I get it cut and over $100 if I get it highlighted.

    Good luck on the book.

    I want your stylist!

    And while I’m at it, I want your pedicure, too.

    But I really want your stylist. I’ve never been happy with a stylist to remember his or her name. Meh.

    I’m thinking your stylist rocked since you didn’t get poodle ears like mine gave me. Won’t see her again.

    A pedicure sounds fantastic too. Okay actually the nice warm/hot water bath more the feet. My toes are freezing right now.

    HaHa! No poodle ears. My dad says I look 10 years younger. My daughter hates change so hates my hair. I have strict orders to grow it back to my butt. To my butt, not on my butt! To tell the truth, I forgot how curly my hair really is when it’s not dragged down. It’s really fluffy.
