A lot of it is the "new toy" syndrome - on J's part. *eg* I understand it, but I'm still exhausted. (This also explains the silence here - he *hates* the computer, and hates giving me even 15 minutes each AM and PM to check my emails. He needs to get used to it.....I'm NOT surfing/gaming/whatever, I'm just checking my freaking email. :sigh:)
Speaking of hair, I ordered some "neutral henna", which isn't neutral or henna. It's Cassia Obovata, and it's to add shine, strength and luster - but no color. I'm blonde...while I *love* red hair, I'm too pale to carry it off well. If I could guarantee strawberry blonde, I'd go for straight henna - but I can't, so..it's a no-go. Think I'll try it on Herself's hair, too, since...well. Hadn't mentioned it, but she has managed to *break* off *all* her hair. It went from mid-back curls to barely jawline length in 2 days, because she was "bored". Seems it's fun to wrap the hair around her fingers and yank... *sigh* I've been pushing the Hair vitamins on her, and oiling her hair (for moisture - I'm using Sweet Almond Oil right now; will soon switch to jojoba when I a)find some and b)have the spare funds to purchase it), AND using the hair formulas from the Afro-American aisle. Her hair was *so* pretty, too.....now, it's a broken up mess. *deep sigh* Hmmm....wonder if switching her to a more natural conditioner will help (curly girls shouldn't use shampoo - it messes up the curls. So, about a month ago I switched her to conditioner only - *I'm* using a conditioner with no silicone in it, and my hair has gone nuts...we're talking curls, curls, curls now instead of simple waves. Wonder what that would do to her hair?)
Tomorrow we go to the in-laws for our Halloween get-together. This'll be fun....the kids *require* breakfast at Granny's, so we have to leave early. Granny requires lunch and mid-afternoon tea, so we won't get home before 4-ish. Sunday, we have church, then have to hit Tyler to pick up a few more tools, then on to J's cabin to pick up some more of his stuff (let's see....5 PM at the earliest. Note to self: Put a roast on) Monday is a holiday (Fair Day!), but I can't afford to go to the Fair, so the kids will go to daycare and I will - finally - go to sleep. (If, that is, J. has a job by then. He's got a prospect - he's there now, as a matter of fact - but if the money isn't what he wants he won't take it. *sigh* Stress, much?)
I'd like to pick up some hair stick blanks soon, so I can prettify them up. Maybe, if Herself helps with that, she'll be more inclined to leave her hair alone and let it grow out again. Maybe pick up some hair pin blanks, too.....hmmmmmm. I've got all these lampwork beads, see, that need to be used......
*yawn* Must pretend to work, now.
