High Praise

I'm losing you guys. I can see it. Every week, fewer and fewer people have stopped in. I don't blame you. I haven't been writing much. I'd make a promise to post more often but I hate breaking promises and it's one I'm not sure I can keep. This is all I have time for right now and really I just do this for me anyway. Which is probably the reason I'm not writing much because the "me" time, it's just not happening these days. (weeks, months, year)

Anyway. I thought a couple of things were blog worthy so here I am.

On Sunday at church the kids made a picture for their Moms in honor of Mother's Day. It is a flower with four petals. Above the flower it says "My mom is..." and then there are four petals with things written on them. Mine say, "My name" "Nice" "Good Cook" and most hilariously "sometimes gives me time outs". It is the first time I have looked at anything she's made and burst out laughing. Thankfully there was enough commotion what with everyone leaving that she didn't notice so I didn't hurt her feelings. I can only imagine how entertaining it must have been for the Teacher who was writing on the petals for her. I am choosing to believe that she understands that I give her time outs out of love for her which is why she thought it was important to be on a petal and not because she couldn't think of anything else nice to say about me.

Also. I got my haircut. Thank God. I was so incredibly sick of it long. I committed to cutting it weeks ago but then it took forever for the stars to align so that it could actually happen. No folks, there aren't really perks to working in the beauty industry. We have to wait longer than the rest of you to get anything done.

Oh, great haircut! Great picture too! Your daughter's comments are very funny. Good cook? Do children at that age really care? Or notice? But it is very sweet that she thought hearing this would make you happy.

I said this before, but your hair is fantastic! With your color, you have sort of a Louise Brooks thing going on. It's sort of 1920s-ish.

Ha! Your blog and mine, and I just cannot seem to find the time to care much!

So I'm scrolling down and seeing your "before" pic, thinking to myself that you have mislabled it... then I see the "after."

Great hair!!! It's not that you're not interesting to read anymore, but with the melting of the snow comes less and less time for me to peruse blogs. I did, however, purchase a laptop, so when I take my work outdoors, I'll try and get onto my blog so I can read yours!! I, too, am blog is terribly BLAH right now!!!
