Ramble Ramble Ramble....and a New Do

Today was kind of a random day....so here's to a random post.


I got my hair cut today. I've been thinking about it for awhile now, but decided to just bite the bullet and do it. Too bad I didn't think earlier about before and after pictures, but I decided on a whim to go do it today, so I wasn't thinking camera=pictures=good blog posting. Oh well.







It's short, isn't it? Oh, but I really like it. At least I like it today. It is still all bouncy and good-smelling from the beauty shop. I'll let you know my feelings after I have to tackle it tomorrow on my own. (Always the scariest part of a new haircut for me. Yikes!)

While I'm on the subject of hair cuts....what is up with guys liking long hair? I had this conversation with the girl doing my hair today. She said that EVERY OTHER PERSON that sits in her chairs mentions that her husband likes long hair. What? They don't have to fix it! I've decided that if Kirk wants to wake up 20 minutes earlier every morning to dry and straighten it for me, then...fine....I'll grow it out. But, if I'm responsible....short hair it is.

On another note....I didn't watch the inauguration today...unless 6:00 news coverage counts. We tried to watch the webcast at school today, but because every other person in the world was watching it online today, the picture was choppy and it sounded like Obama had a serious stutter. I tend to suffer from some ADD....so I gave up. I couldn't follow it and figured that the news stations would be playing clips for the next 3 weeks, so eventually I'd get to see the whole thing.

Is it bad that I'm more excited about American Idol tonight than I am the inauguration? That is terrible. It's not that I'm unpatriotic or that I am failing to recognize the significance of this day in our nation's history....I'm just really looking forward to Idol. (Maybe I shouldn't put that in writing. Oh well. I'll take my chances.)

While I'm in reality TV mode....I'm totally hooked on The Bachelor. Ugh. It is like a train wreck. So pitiful that I can't stop watching. Not sure why he kept the mean girl and the stalker last night.....SCARY. My favorites right now are these two.




Keaton cooked dinner tonight. I was served a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, a slice of cheese, and water (with ice) in a champagne flute. It was marvelous. I love "Kids Cook Nite" at our house. Fun stuff! I could have kicked myself for not taking pictures of this, too, and I actually thought of it this time....but my camera's batteries were dead....grrrrrrrr.


Sorry for the rambling.....

Happy Tuesday!

Love the hair! My husband prefers long hair but doesn't really care how I wear it...lucky for him I prefer it long.

Having a hard time watching Idol tonight. Ready for Hollywood week. I don't watch every season of The Bachelor but I am a fan this season. I like your 2 girls plus Jillian and Molly.

I love your hair. I need a cut so badly but I have to schedule it so far out. That reminds me I should do that tomorrow.

I love the Bachelor too, but haven't been able to catch any episodes this season. We don't have a dvr and I can't/won't watch it while my kids are awake. My older two beg me to let them, but I just. can't. do. that.

Love the new do! I really need a cut too but I hate going. Isn't that weird? A girl that hates getting her hair done.

Jennifer said...

Super cute hair cut! I know, I love the freshly-cut-and-fixed-hair feel.
I, too, am excited about Idol. Haven't watched it yet but it's safe and sound in DVR world.
That's so sweet Keaton "cooked" you dinner!

Mich said...

Cute cut! I survived today, but still have to go back for more tooth torture. I'll probably blog about it soon!

Hair cut is cute...pbj with cheese is precious! BTW we have the same favorites! That probably means they'll get dumped in the next show...silly boys on reality tv!

Nina Diane said...

Love the new haircut! I wish I could get up the nerve to cut mine short.
and don't feel bad....I'm with ya there on the inuguration thing..I was more excited about watching The Biggest Loser! have a great day....

I've seen you around so I thought I would pop by. Cute haircut. I'm in desperate need of one myself. I also have 3 boys (5,4, 3 months) and a girl (2 years). Boys make life exciting, don't they? ;)

Cute haircut! And I have to say, you have the greatest family ideas. I'd have never thought of a "kid cook night". Too fun! So did you end up eating something else when they went to bed? I can't imagine eating only a sandwich and a slice of cheese for dinner.

Jo said...

Aunt Jo loves your haircut, too.

Hey! Can I borrow Keaton for a while? His dinner sounds much better than mine some days! I hate to cook for just me all the time! (So I don't.......cook much, that is.)

Luvya!
