I added more color in my hair at the end of July. The green will fade fairly fast (which is okay) but we are working up to a fallish color with colors through out but not all the way down the hair shaft. 😉 I love it. Next time, we’ll just spruce it up. Little Cutie got hers trimmed up and styled. She is spoiled there as Melissa lets her sit under the dryer and gives her a blanket to keep warm (the salon is perfect for me but cold to LC). She gets a sucker too. She just curls up and relaxes. 😉
This has been the worst summer (financially) for me with tutoring. As, I mentioned before, I think people are just excited about being out with grandparents, vacations, camps, etc. But I have been able to get the kids bathed earlier on some days and I’m loving that. Also, we have had friends help us out. I have a friend who picks me up for karate (b/c it’s ultra hot and we have no AC in our car). We learned today that it would cost 700 dollars to fix the car up so we are driving it as is. Sigh. Also friends came and helped us with our yard yesterday b/c we’ve put about $300 into the mower and it still won’t start. We have a couple of new things to try. Below you see Tbear with a spaghetti face. I totally undress him when we have spaghetti. LOL. Hence the happiness of bathing early.
I’ve enjoyed having a tad more free time with the kids but still have been very busy. Stephen and I got to go off for a couple of days for our anniversary (39th). This, too, thanks to friends giving us a gift. I didn’t realize how stressed I was or how much I needed to be away until we were actually there. We just hung out a lot, got to go eat out a couple of times and just enjoyed sitting on the porch listening to the rain. I did tease Stephen b/c he looked at our ticket after eating out and said: They didn’t even ask and gave me a Senior Citizen Discount. Me: Did they give me one? Him: No. Me: 🙂 ❤ He and I laughed the longest about it as he’s only 6 months older than me. It was too funny. And, we were grateful for the discount. 😉
