God Opens a Window

Well, I did get some unpacking done yesterday. I also finished off the Twilight series, and watched Twilight twice. Yes, I was doing other things while it was on, but it was ON! hehehe. Eme's room is now unpacked and wonderul. I even hung curtains. It looked fabulous :)

I unpacked my closet today, and have all my clothes back. Sure, most of them don't fit because I've been eating WAY too much, but they're there, hanging in place, and patiently waiting for me to follow my diet so they can come out and "play" again. I miss my skinny clothes (but I guess not as much as I like the food.......I'll have to work on that one......)

So, I'm cheap. I'll just admit it. I hate spending money on things. Especially hair cuts. I'll get my hair cut, then rather than go back, when it starts to grow out, I'll just come up with a new hairstyle. Seriously. So, I've been wearing it in a bandana recently, because I haven't taken the time to fix it. Yes, I'm lazy too - ROFL!!! WELL, yesterday, I actually showered, fixed my hair, put on make up, and put on decent clothes. Yes, that is blog worthy!

Anway, when the big kids got home from school, they were SO impressed. "Wow, Mom!" they said. "Your hair is SO pretty!". OK, kids. Now your gonna give me a complex. So was it REALLY that bad before, that you're commenting on how good it is now - hehehe. I took a pic of the "new" hair (well, really just new style, since I didn't get it cut (but I did color it - yeah, started graying when I was 21)). What do ya think???

So I hear that Ft. Bliss is having a post wide garage sale today. I think I"ll wander my neighborhood and see if I can find any good deals. I love garage sales, but not necessarily taking small children to them. We'll see how brave I'm feeling.

Jacob is going to a school thing today at 9, and Tom was invited to a neighbor kids' b-day party at 4. I guess that means I'm gonna have to come up with some sort of present between now and then. Sigh.

You know, sometimes when I post my WordArt on here, it's SUPER tiny, and hard to read. Well, today is NOT that day - hehehe. Look how HUGE it is! Oh well, the better to read, I guess :) This wordArt request is from Joyce. And to the rest of you with requests out there, I'm sorry it's taken so long. I'm still getting set up, after having moved so many times this year. This is place #3 in 2009 to have lived. Sigh. Crazy times :)

Your hair looks shiny and lovely! The only time my grays get covered is when I go to get it trimmed. It drives my hairdresser nuts - she can't stand to leave them, LOL!

Thanks for the fab word art!

Hello - just want to say, so, so glad I found your Blog - I love how you do your word art. I was wondering if you could do this one - whenever:
Old Age ain't no place for sissies.
By Bette Davis
I am a Personal Support Worker (PSW) and this would be great on the chocolate bars I wrap for my seniors, I feel once someone can reach 80, they deserve a treat so I bribe my seniors and they love it. This saying would be great on some of the bars!!
Thanks so much,

I wish I could pull off a headband! I end up looking like I'm 12. My hair is about the same length as yours, maybe slightly shorter. It looks great on you!

Thanks for the great wordart, Bethany! Don't feel bad, I got my first gray hair at 18! I can relate! Ellen

Janeal said...

What a great quote! Okay, where you watching The Sound of Music last week too. LOL! I love this quote from the Reverend Mother. Wonderful and so appropriate! Thank you so much!

Ok, your hair is GORGEOUS. I have to ask - what color do you use!? I have black hair so the grey...well...let's just say it's like a spotlight on my head!

You're one of those people who is blessed to look beautiful from the minute they wake up till the minute they go to bed and all the moments in between. I suspect that not only is it because you're beautiful on the outside, but you're beautiful on the inside and it's a joy to read your blog!

Cute new doo! Thank you for the Word Art!

Tigger said...

Oh girl you look FINE! I know how you feel about getting your hair cut. I've got my dad's thick, wavy and unruly hair. It doesn't matter who cuts my hair, it always comes out wrong because they try to get it all EVEN. My hair doesn't DO even. So every six months I grab my scissors and hack it all off. My thought is that I can pay 30 dollars for a bad haircut or do it myself and have a bad but FREE haircut. Your hair looks great so you're WAY ahead of me! LOL Happy Sunday!!

Kessa said...

Thanks so much.

Thanks for the wordart Bethany!
Your hairstyle looks great! I just had a haircut too, and I might be using that hairband trick to jazz it up a little as well! LOL

Randi said...

Cute hair! And I started greying when I was 19 -- I'm only 32!

Thanks for the Word Art!
