On Saturday, I will finally get my hair cut and colored. It's been about eight months. Other things kept coming up that I thought I should spend the money on. Well, now I have the money. It is for me and I will use it for me! Yay!
I thought it would be cool to have before and after photos of my hair to show all of my Spark friends. I took some pictures last night. I had taken my shower, so my hair was flat and I had no make up on. Apparently, I am an old woman. Or some old lady jumped in front of the camera I was holding when I took the pictured. I deleted those! I took some pictures this morning with freshly done hair and makeup. Can't get much better than that, right? WRONG!! That OLD lady gussied up a little and jumped in front of me again!!! LOL! Okay, so I'm the old lady or vain or both.
Soooo, tomorrow morning, I'm going to have my daughter take the picture and maybe get more of my hair in the picture and less of that pushy lady! If I can get a picture that doesn't make me wince, I'll post it. I'm hoping the after picture is a lot easier to get!
Nite ladies. It's been a long day and I have to work tomorrow. See you on the flip side!

At work, I was taking part in a mentoring program. I was working with 8th grade girls who are interested in technical careers. Today, they all came out to my work site and we had activities. We got to build a dance pad that when you stepped on it, it lit up and buzzed. That was fun! We also took a tour of my work. It's amazing the stuff they think is cool that we just take for granted.
After the tour, we went back to the conference room for lunch and more activities. We built an egg transportation box out of straws, marshmallows and masking tape. Our egg could be dropped from shoulder height (about 4 feet) and not break. We were pretty excited by that! The last activity was drawing on t-shirts with Sharpies and then dropping rubbing alcohol on the Sharpie. The colors spread into some very cool colors.
It was a lot of fun and I think the girls enjoyed it too. I hope I'm asked to take part in the program again next year.

Had DP yesterday (a lot) and started again today with having none. Feel good when I don't drink it, so not sure why I keep going back. I'm doing better and drinking a lot less than I was. It helps that I told DH that I don't drink DP anymore. Therefore, in his world, all of the DP in the fridge is his! LOL!! Actually, it helps. It's not mine to drink. If I want some, I have to go buy it and I am CHEAP!!
Falling way behind on the HPC. Back still hurts. Yesterday while at the gym I decided to try a knees pushup to see if pushups used that muscle. YEP!!! Stopped before I really started. I figure its better to heal and then start over than it is to push and possibly do some permanent damage.
Stayed within my calorie range today. Planning to eat well all week and then have a night off on Saturday (Bunco!). But, just Saturday night for the two hours I have company. Not all day and not after everyone has gone home. Gives me nice, solid boundaries to enjoy the splurge and stop when it's time.

Usually, on Sundays, I sit on my bum and read. Today I was actually pretty busy. I'm hosting Bunco next weekend and my house needed some serious attention. I decided I needed to start working on it this weekend, or it would NEVER be ready in time!
First thing I did was knock down the spider webs. Felt tons better just doing that! Then, I cleared off the desk (right in the dining room/living room area) and the table next to it. Beautiful!! Next, I fixed my vacuum cleaner so I could vacuum. Then I had a better idea. I had my daugher vacuum instead! How wonderful of an idea is that!
During that time, the family also went out to lunch and a small shopping trip. Forgot to get a new mouse. Oh well. After the shopping/lunch trip, I headed to the gym for an hour cardio session and then came home to finish up laundry.
Tried a new recipe, Tortilla Chip Casserole. My DH told me that it was "adequate" which to me means BLECH! Of course, he's had three or four margaritas and thought he was being cute. The important thing is that the whole family said I could make it again. And it makes a ton! Leftovers for me and the boy for days!!!!
My back is still hurting, so I'm behind on the HPC. Looks like I'll have to start over on week 3 sometime next week...I hope!
Time to go sit on my bum and read now!!
