May's half way over. Can't believe it. That means vacation is getting closer and closer - my best friend Rhonda said we had 24 days until we get to see each other. Woohoo. Can't wait.
Well, I colored my hair today. The box said Champagne blonde. I say it's red - again. I've just too darn much red in my hair naturally. My hairdresser said my hair a couple years ago was naturally strawberry blonde. Well, it looks red to me in the light. Oh well, it's something different for a change. It'll grow out or I'll get used to it and like it and keep it up. Who knows. Never know what Rhonda and I might do next month when I'm down there. I may get a totally different color. Never know.
I have felt like crap this week. I did laundry all day last Friday and then Saturday my Aunt & I ran errands. Sunday I did more laundry. Monday I was gone all day with my son celebrating a late Mother's Day. We went out for a Starbucks White Mocha and Auntie Anne's pretzel nuggets (my monthly indulge but I only eat half the nuggets). Then we walked around stores looking at things. We went to see Iron Man 3 - I loved it! Afterwards we went to Texas Roadhouse for dinner. I brought home most of my entree so my son took it for lunch yesterday. Yesterday I ran errands with my Aunt again. Today, I barely made it on a 38 minute walk with my dog. Yesterday we walked 37 minutes and that was it. I didn't even ride my exercise bike yesterday and I'm going to in a bit tonight. Last night was the first night I haven't ridden it since we got it May 2nd. I'm just exhausted and my muscles are killing me. I took half a muscle relaxer this afternoon and it helped a little so I may take the other half tonight.
I started repotting my plants since it's been so warm outside. I still have a lot to do but I'm getting there. Can't wait to repot my one pineapple plant because it needed to be repotted last year but I never got around to it. I'm planning on doing that tomorrow while my son's here so I can get it set in the pot better. I have a bunch of tangerine "trees" and Meyer lemon "trees" that are just a couple inches tall to repot too. I have a few regular lemon "trees" too. I repotted my sweet basil I got Saturday and two pineapples today. Once I get them repotted I'll post pics for those interested.
I can tell I've been riding that exercise bike. My jeans are fitting looser in the legs and butt. I've managed to lose a couple of those pounds I had regained. So things are going in the right direction.

    I used to try to do highlights but they always turned out brassy or like lemons. Now I just go natural with what the Lord gave me. I am impressed with how long you have kept up riding your new bike! And I agree you need to rest if your body needs it. Hope you get time to post the plant photos. I would love to see them!

    You are one busy lady. I think it's awesome that you have rode your bike all but one day. I think your body will tell you when you need a rest and that's a good thing. I would love to see pictures of your plants too. Sounds pretty. Hope you are feeling better soon.

    LOL. I tried to dye my hair blonde once. I wanted it too look sunkissed like in the magazine - like I spent all day surfing or something. It came out orange and *not* a cool looking orange - an ORANGE orange. So I guess red is better than orange. Right? I am sure you look adorable... :)
