How did this happen?

Ever have "one of those days"?

I call my hair salon and talk to my girl for an appointment to get a cut/color/style. She has me come in 2 hours later.

She does my color, washes it out, then asks me what I want. I look at her like "huh?" and say "style". She sees me every 6 weeks or so and I get the same thing every time, so why ask?

She fully blows dry my hair (which takes a while as I have a TON of hair) and I think, "Why does my hair not look as great as it normally does at the salon?"

Then it dawns on me that my bangs are too long.

And then I go "DUH!!!!!"

I did NOT get my hair cut. I sat there for 2 hours and did not get my hair cut.

How does that happen?

So now I get to go AGAIN on Tuesday for my haircut. UGH.

Has this happened to you?

Guess who's 17!

We took these photos just prior to taking Holt to his birthday dinner, where he ate a 22 oz Porterhouse steak with all the trimmings, sides, etc. 2nd most expensive thing on the menu, but he wouldn't be Holt if he ordered something reasonable. lol And he wonders why we don't invite him to dinner more often. lol

And since Holt needed a car, we gave him Ryan's older car (1995 Geo Prizm) and got Ryan this used car we found locally, a 1999 Acura 3.0 CL. He loves it - loaded, leather heated seats, moon roof, Bose stereo system, performance car - all for just over $3000. Bargain shopping!! I was watching Craigslist like a hawk, and we inquired and were viewing this car in person within 1 hour of it's posting. Had it inspected by our mechanic and it is in pristine shape! The good ones go fast, let me tell you!

I didn't know I was in this picture! lol So much for getting out of the way.

Update on Ryan: He enrolled this morning at the local community college in Pre-pharmacy and is taking 17 hours - Biology, Chemistry, Calculus, Public Speaking and Psychology. He had recently found out there was no chance to walk on the golf team at Ole' Miss this entire next year, so he researched the community college. He's not only saving over $4000 but the CC has a golf team and he's welcome to be on it! It will officially take up in the Spring, but he will continue golfing with his chiropractor buddy of his all over North MS. He has to maintain a 3.5 GPA for the pre-pharmacy program, so he will be buckling down. He actually seems excited!

I'm too young to have 20 and 17 year old children!! Have a great day!

P.S. Holt got his hair cut today.........and Ryan is taking credit for the style recommendation to go shorter on the sides. I think it looks great!

These photos were taken when Granny and PaPa (Andy's folks) were here for a visit 2 weeks ago.

A rare photo with our oldest, Ryan, now 20.

Dinner with the Boys

Went to dinner with the boys tonight, a rarity nowadays. Drove around the area looking at tornado damage - just had another MAJOR storm blow through Thursday afternoon/evening, with many tornadoes. Ryan and I spent time together in the bathroom shower and Andy was stuck at work!! Not fun.

So much going on lately - Andy was in the hospital for a massive headache with tons of tests run. Good news - his brain is still there. Bad news? Exertion headache, similar to a migraine. It was BAD.

Super quick, unplanned trip to Dallas to attend a reunion of my buddies from high school - so much fun!! So glad we made it.

Andy's folks were here visiting last weekend - so good to see them on their first car trip in a long time!

I've had increased pain and just trying to hunker down and get it back under control. I'm not able to get in the pool every day like I did last summer due to cooler temps and tons of rain. Water is just too cool and would cause muscle spasms for me. Wishing for sunshine and 100 degree weather to warm up the pool water!

Take care,
