Haircut

hair results are in and done, finally!

So the color results are in! I’ve always been a fan of purple, despite it’s repeated mixed results on my head. But purple and cobalt blue tied on the poll so, for you guys, I gave it another shot.

We kinda mixed the blue and purple, hoping to make the purple last a little longer. It has been known to begin fading before I even wash it. But if any of you see me in person, you know, tomorrow, and it already looks faded, you’ll know my experiment didn’t work. I also skipped my run this morning so I didn’t have to rinse or wash my hair. Just to enjoy it another day. Priorities people.

Side note: the bleaching step of this process was the most ridiculous in between I have ever had. I’ve had to bleach my hair lots of times, color will not show up on ┬ámy hair otherwise. Each time I think, that’s kind of ok. I could live with that for a bit, and then I put color on top anyway.

This time I looked in the mirror after I washed the bleach off and screamed holy lord cover it up quick. No you will not be getting a picture of that. It was awful, but it was just a means to an end, but it was so awful. Think like cheetah on crack bad. You know it’s not just you freaking out when you walk down the stairs and your sister busts out laughing. Sisters keep it real people. But the end result I am happy with, so as Pete the cat says, it’s all good.

If you’ll allow me a second side note, we are three hours into day two with no eye twitch! I feel this is cause for celebration. I have never had an eye twitch last over two weeks before. I’ve never had one last more than one day before. But I’m so hoping it is gone for good.

Anywho I’m off to go fill out our DCF paperwork, again. I’m putting it out there. I’m mailing it today. It is going to happen. Till next week.

a day late and a dollar short

Just a quick update on all the things over here.

The computer has become a hot commodity. We’ve switched the majority of our schooling for the big kids over to easy peasy and it’s mostly on the computer. Add that too the reading eggs/mathseeds for the little two and unless we are all out (when I couldn’t use it anyway), someone is on the computer. So far it’s working fairly well, but every now and then I want a turn (could you parents here the whine in that voice, it was there, I was channeling my inner 5 year old.) Some things, like typing, do not work so well on the iPad. We’re figuring it out, in the meantime…here’s our updates.

1)I know you’re all only here to see a baby update, so I’ll end the suspense. There is no update. But someone from our training class is in the hospital now, hoping to take home their baby tomorrow! We are very excited for them, they’ve had a number of disappointments and we are so praying this one is it for them! I’m sure they would appreciate your prayers too.

2)Race day is this Sunday, bright and early. This is a smaller half so I don’t think there will be online tracking like the Disney races, but I will post our end time. We’ll be done before 8:30am hopefully! The hope was to break the 2 hour barrier this year. I can tell you right now that is NOT going to happen. Someone, me, severely underestimated the effect of the stress of everything that has been happening this year. If I can pull in under 2:28 I’ll be satisfied, if I can PR and go under 2:13 I’ll be thrilled. Even PRing this year will take everything I have and potentially more, it’s within reach though, maybe, close enough to try for anyway. I’ll keep you posted.

3)No hair pics cause I haven’t done anything! I have been thoroughly enjoying the short hair though. No regrets, I’m loving it. The color will get there. Purple is the current winner, with blue being a close second. Purple has had limited success in my hair, but I have some new strategies and I’ll give it a try again.

4)Not an update, but still giving it a number. Got away for 48 hours with Bycemaster for an early birthday present for him. Best thing ever. Getting away from everything and going some where with no pressures or expectations just us, it was glorious and so needed. I feel like I can tackle the this phase of life again, instead of it tackling me. It’s been tackling me for months now.

On that note, I’m off to round up the gang. It’s Aldi time! (I will share my new obsession with Aldi shortly I’m sure, I’m in love) Then back to schooling and cleaning and baking with my little baker. Full day, we’re off!

hair cuts

I gave Jacob his first haircut this week. It has taken me until yesterday to recognize him as my baby. He looks so different. When Grant for saw him after school he laughed his head off and said that was not his brother. Then five minutes later as they were playing, he yells out, mommy it sounds like Jacob, but it doesn’t look like him!

He is very proud of new look, and I must say I am too. For a semi wiggly two year old haircut, I think I did a pretty good job.

A bit puffed up with my success, I decided to go for Grant’s hair too. Tonight we gave Grant a faux hawk. Totally his idea I might add. I was going for a shorter messy look and he said he wanted it all up in the middle. It was a little short for that by the time he told me, but we made it work.

I can tell he likes it, but he’s also self conscious about it. He’s concerned everyone else will not like it, except Papa and Nana. He’s pretty sure they will like it, but they like anything and everything he does, I think he’s safe there. He’s already got plans to flatten it for school, he doesn’t think his teachers will like it. If you see him, don’t you dare laugh. I’m proud of him for stepping out, it’s hard for him. And he looks adorable!

Maybe it’s time for Jena’s first haircut, I’m on a roll.

When did your kids get their first haircut? Two years too? Older? Younger?
