1 Non Blonde
Sunday it was blonde, today it's not. After a few years of being a blonde, and loving it, I've decided to go back to my natural color.
Personally, I prefered the blonde. I knew I would ... never once did I regret having blonde hair. I loved it.
But ... after reading this book and this one Jason and I have made a commitment to become debt free. We've been pinching pennies on gas, groceries, cleaning supplies, etc., and spending a big chunk of cash on my hair ever 2-3 months just doesn't make sense. I mean really, why work to save less than $1.00 on noodles and then spend $150 on haircolor? So the haircoloring had to go (and I've tried and failed at doing it myself, so that's not an option).
I told my hairdresser that the first thing I'm doing when we pay off our last debt is calling her to get the blonde back!
And how is the whole getting out of debt thing going? Really well. We've got a long way to go but once we sat down with our budget and came up with a tough plan (like $125 a week for food ... groceries and eating out ... we're not eating out much!), we started seeing that there might actually be a light at the end of the tunnel and I know we'll get there. Some of it really sucks, like my hair and not being able to go out to eat much at all, but even those things have silver linings when we look hard enough. We've already paid off much more than we expected to by now.
And now for something completely unrelated here are a few pictures of A. and K. climbing in a gigantic tree this afternoon. It looks sort of like a banyan tree, but I don't think it is because the roots aren't hanging down as a banyan's roots would, but then all the knots may be from cutting the roots. Sounds like a home school project to me. A. is in the first picture, in a white t-shirt just above the roots on the right hand side, both boys are in the other two pictures.
