Hair and Share...



Before Getting there... After!!


So I finally cut my hair in my attempts to "grow up". Think it needs one more adjustment, we'll see. Created a two week challenge and sent it out to get some dieting support. I lasted to day 3. Woo-hoo!! Send out a press release!!! Tara has issues with sticking to something. Well. I have been married for ten years. That counts as sticking to something. My house has been relatively maintained for a few weeks. That is progress. Now on to more important things...



#1 Why is it that I can't hear the song "I had the time of my life..." from Dirty Dancing without picturing myself dancing around a dancing studio with Patrick Swayze? It doesn't matter where I am, Publix, Shopping Mall, Dr.'s office...I am just instantly there! It is like a early 90's brainwashing!! I am physically and mentally incapable of not picturing that scene in my head and starting to sway my hips.



#2 Why do our cartoons friends have to be labeled? The smurfs, the care bears, the seven dwarfs! Can we all just be different things each days? Or maybe we are more than one thing every day? I know I am occasionally grumpy, dopey and sleepy all at the same time. Why did they have to be labeled as just one. It is so wrong.



#3 I think at this point of my life I am blogging for my own entertainment. I realize that no one may care to read this but I am amusing myself by writing it so that counts! Free entertainment for me, by me!


Good night to all my late night reading friends. May your dreams be sweet. May your rest be satisfying and may you wake up happy and content with the world.

Tara,
It is 1:17 a.m. and I loved reading your blog. It brought a smile to my face. A well needed smile. I have had one of those "How did I get here" nights where I realized I have spent so much time wasting time. How's that for an aha moment. ;)

You can pull of just about any hair cut but the new do is beautiful :) You have more "stick-to-it-ness" than you think. 10 years of marriage is hug, and we've been friends for upwards of 20 years. THAT'S STICKIN TO IT! Love ya girly. You are doing great with the blog and I enjoy reading it.

Hey Tillie - That is the nickname i remember :-) I love reading this! I wish I had time to do this more often. You look fabulous!! I wish Texas and Florida were not sooo far away! I think about the stuff you are writing about so often! There is no "Manual" that warns you about the feelings you will face after marriage, kids, job and the like, for later in life when we "grow up". There are so many emotional challenges! No wonder women are so much stronger than men! I have found that I need a hobby away from home as well. I have started playing bunco with a group of ladies from church. It's a fun time once a month, most of the women are older than me, but I am able to ask questions from those who've "been there" in life with their kids or their spouses. It is quite enlightening.
Enough said for now - I hope you are well and I think and pray for you and matt and the girls often. I miss you. PS - We have been friends since we were in 8th grade - 20 yrs - almost 21! Yes you have the ability to stick to it! :-) Hope to write again soon
