Woohoo!  A couple of them today!  Woohoo, plane ticket bought, super excited!!  Woohoo #2, Jordyn got AP Scholar certificate award in the mail yesterday, dno't know exactly what it means, but know its good. (Hmm, just now realizing i put it in her mail folder, which she never checks, so she probably has no idea its there.)

Whines:  Money, plane ticket was NOT cheap.

Worries:  None really, things are going relatively smoothly

Whatever:  My motivation (or lack thereof) lately...

Woo hoo: I'll get back to you on this one...

Whines: really... How hard is it to put the clothes in the hamper in yr room and not on the floor..

Worries: my dad & money. On the bright side, dh is getting paid regularly. I'm still trying to figure out wore to get us out of the hole his lack of regular income put us in. Want to apply for part time jobs but need to get past Dad's surgery next week first.

Whatever: My hair needs to be cut desperately but I already have a color appt. for this week and can't afford both in the same week. Next week is not a possibility because I'll be out of town.

Isn't it funny Ami how we have to stagger hair appointments like that! I have a cut scheduled for next week, I would love to get my color done, but definitely can't afford it for a little bit, that and DH tells me that its bad for me, I should go natural. (Umm, he's never seem me "natural" and I am not sure if I like natural. LOL!)

Yup. Had to choose between the two and decided that the color was more important because I'm short and people can see the gray really easily, even though my hair is medium blonde. I really like the way it looks colored and I'm glad my mom talked me into it but it's getting really expensive. I'll just put some money aside next week for the cut and get it cut after the surgery.

Not only is it expensive to do it all at once but it takes FOREVER if you do both at once!

Tracy- Kristen got one of those in the mail a few days ago too.  And I opened it- thinking it was money LOLOLOLOL.

She'll probably complain b/c I opened that, and her credit card bill.  Just wanting to see how she's spending her money- the only thing on that is her books, and they weren't as bad as she thought they were going to be.

I go to 2 different places. I have my lady that cuts my hair, love her and she thins it out really well, but its $40 for the cut, which is actually cheaper, it used to be $60, but she moved places and has a smaller overhead cost, so dropped her rates a bit, so its $50 after tip. Then I go to this amazing guy who does color, but he is super super expensive, which is why I don't do it often. I am looking at switching to an all organic hair place and seeing how i like them, but I hate switching and have it mess up. My hair got fairly light this summer, more of a light auburn because of all the time I spent in the sun. I'm almost afraid if I do let my natural hair grow up, grey will start appearing!! Not that grey is bad and all, but I'm only 35, I'd like to hold off a little longer. My middle brother is 32 and he has dark blonde hair, but he actually has already started getting some grey hair and it scares me! My hair is naturally a very dark ash brown, so grey would stick out like a sore thumb.

Cheryl, I probably shouldn't have opened it, I actually thought it might be that national merit scholarship stuff from her PSAT scores. So I opened it, looked at it (since i could see "Congratulations" from in the window) and then I put it back in and sealed it back up (it was only half sealed). LOL! So she'll have no idea I even opened it, and I am not telling her, she's been blah about me opening her mail the last 6 months, so I normally don't touch any of it any longer.

Congrats to Kristen on it! Again, I have no idea what it means, she didn't get one after her sophomore year testing, so I assume it had something to do with either the amount of tests she took or the 5 she got on her stats test.

Whohoo!  We go to see the college student for the first time next weekend (I don't know if that's a whohoo or a worry LOL)

Whines.  Ok I have 7 different job applications just "floating out there".  4 different state ones, a temp job, a job putting out merchandise for Macy's and one with a call center I previously applied to but didn't get.  Could one of them PLEASE call me to say they want me to work for them?  Pretty please???????????????

Worries:  Money.  The 11 year old cat.

Whatever:  Becca has her permit.  Though I really want her to be driving, I really don't know if I want to deal with behind-the-wheel stuff with her since "I" was the one who had to deal with Kristen and she's STILL got work to do on driving.  Not to mention Becca has no fear of anything........

I'm in pretty much the same situation. A friend of a friend who works at a fancy schmancy salon cuts my hair at his house so I pay $40 instead of $100. I go someplace expensive for my color too. My mom came with me the first time (and paid) to help describe the color I wanted and act as moral support. I really liked it and now I'm hooked on this place.
