Geriatric Hair

Thursday, April 10, 2014

It's my hair or my body, but, I have yet to channel that negative energy wisely. I just find that I'm on autopilot and I don't clue in until the bleach has made my hair a rainbow of banana peel yellow, melted white and jello orange. That's when I remember to pray.
*face palm*

I am cruel to my hair.

It's not like I have some nastiness that I feel compelled to hide. I really like my soft light brown hair. I have a wicked awesome streak of silver-grey in my bangs that Rogue would envy.

I like the illusion that I have some kind of control on my environment. Colouring my hair when I am thrown into turmoil is all a part of my coping mechanism. I wanted to bake a cake and eat it solo like I had been doing since surgery and lay-offs. Instead I hit the bottle. The water bottle and then the hair dye.

I'm not doing the radiant red ever again. I felt like a clown trying to match my makeup to balance that intensity. That did not make feel pretty. I gotta feel pretty so, I can remember to treat myself pretty.

Yup, I am that sissy.

I kept in my range for two days in a row. I snuck a hop on the scale and it looks like I met my goal for the week. I still have Tiger's 40th on Saturday to contend with calories .

OH! Asides from celebrating a milestone in my husband's life, I was asked to put my resume in at a Retirement Home. I'll be following up tomorrow.
That's what started my panic mode. I was planning to remain a Homemaker during the lay-offs, then the tightening of the pursestrings seemed to choke the fun out of being home. I can't maintain or improve things if we're never getting past, "Go".

    You are so beautiful on the outside ....... no matter the color of your hair .... and so AMAZINGLY BEAUTIFUL on the INSIDE if you were completely bald no one would even notice. Your inside beauty makes everything about you seem absolutely flawless.
Now, I hope that things change and that you can remain at home, but if need be I also wish you much luck with the possibility of a new job. Still, I hope you will think of it as a temporary placement only ..... rather than a life sentence. Mommies, like you, make this world a far, far better place ......and being a HOMEMAKER is one of the most important jobs ever! And surely one that you do GREAT at!

You ROCK! emoticon

    I always let someone else lighten my hair, and even then I need to take time off every couple of years or it feels all destroyed! I wish I could do it myself- save big bucks.

    I am horrible at coloring my own hair, so I have to pay BIG BUCKS to have someone else do it. If it did not cost so much, I would be changing it more often.

As for your hair color, I think you look great in any color. The truth is, you could not look bad even if you TRIED. emoticon

    This just makes me think of this song:
Hope you get good news from the retirements center. You would be such a breath of fresh air for them! Thinking of you, kiddo. Hang in there!
