Oh Boy!

yikesA couple of things to report…So here in Virginia, well in my part of Virginia, we got about 5 inches of snow. Maybe more, I don’t exactly keep a gauge outside or check the weather, I’m only guessing based on how much is sitting on top of the bird feeders. Anyway, it was enough that kept me inside. I went to the grocery store last night after going to the movies. We saw ‘Sing’. You know, the one with the dancing pig? It was decent. I only wish the lady next to me hadn’t eaten onions and believed in freely belching in my direction. It was pretty disgusting. The movie made me laugh a few times. And who knew Scarlett Johansson could sing?

But that was the end of my evening. It began in the salon chair, 12 hours earlier than that. I got a haircut about 3 weeks ago and the style wasn’t exactly working for me. I cursed and cringed everyday, but avoided calling and expressing my heartburn over the hairdo. As if telling them might make a worse cut out of the situation. Like sending a burger back to the kitchen and having someone spit in it, or something. So…I wish I’d trusted my gut. I called, and they were too happy to “fix” it. Mind you, I love my stylist. She’s the best, but after I had heart palpitations seeing all my hair end up on the ground, I’m rethinking how much I love her. I. have. no. hair. No, really. None. Okay, so a little. Have you ever seen ‘Steel Magnolias’ when Julia Roberts gets all her hair cut off because she’s sick? Yeah, that about sums it up. I wanted to cry…pull my coat over my head…wear a disguise to work. My four boys are now sporting longer hair than me. Yikes. So I have a wig, hair growth vitamins, and a box or two of tissues to get me through the few weeks to grow an inch. 😦

Subject change…The snow has delayed my son returning to college. Not that I mind! 🙂 It’s been so nice having him home. So what if the laundry heap is higher, and the amount of food to make grows larger…I’ll take it!

Yet another subject…(it’s the short hair, I can’t even think long-term anymore!) Now I’ve got to get back to writing my next book! “Searching for Sarah” is coming along. My heroine is inspired by Jennifer Garner. What a sweet girl. She got the raw end of the deal with Ben, I feel. Really? You need a nanny when you have that sweet, pretty girl that’s your wife? I’ll make sure to give her a stand-up guy in my story! How does Kevin Costner sound?kevin_costner

Series Suggestions

Downton Abbey is over…Army Wives I refused to finish due to the killing off of people…now I have nothing. Okay, so I tried Brothers and Sisters. Eh. To tell you the truth, it kinda reminds me too much of my own family. LOL. It was nothing but stress. The dad dies, the one brother is fighting to find his way, the sister won’t talk to the mom, and the other one is going through a marriage crisis. I was thinking a little more about something that didn’t seem so real. I watch things to get my mind off life. Not take mine and all their problems to bed with me. Oy!

I do have LOST to watch. My oldest son and I only have five more seasons to watch before he goes to college. Ha! I wonder if we’ll make it. I did, however, remember seeing THE GILMORE GIRLS  in the store the other day. I’ve heard nothing but good things about that one. Perhaps I’ll give it a look-see. If anyone has any other suggestions, please pass them on. No doubt I’ll give the brother-sister show a few more tries. I never like to give up that easily on something. I just wish there was someone on there that had their stuff together. Some glimmer of hope that someone  could help the others!

I’ll keep you posted. 🙂
