I love to go thrifting!  You can really find some great buys.  Sounds like you found some really neat stuff!

Indeed!  This is a new thing for me; before 2 or 3 years ago I'd never even set foot inside a Good Will store.  Not being snobby or anything, I just wasn't taught to do that by my mother.  I think she was a mild germophobe...
Anyway, I really enjoy doing it now.  I think I want to go again soon and find some cheap jeans to switch over to a skirt.   Cool

Friday 28 August 2009
Hair  Wash day; no mousse or spray this morning as I wanted to give it a break.  Still letting it grow. 

Other  It's been one of those weeks.

On Tuesday I found out that one of my former student workers had died the week before.  He was only 46, one year younger than me.  We had worked together back in the early- to mid-1990s but after he graduated I never heard from him again.  Quite a few of my former student workers keep in touch with me, in one form or another, and I was surprised when he didn't.  From the obituary I learned he had married in 2003, had a three step-children and a daughter of his own.  Apparently he just went to sleep one night and didn't wake up the next morning.  His death in and of itself is bad enough; what's worse is not being able to say goodbye or attend his funeral.   Sad  That makes 2 student workers who have preceded me in death.  Strange... 

Then on Wednesday my mother in law had hip replacement surgery.  She seems to be doing quite well and believes she'll be discharged from hospital today.  Hubby and I are thinking it will probably be more like tomorrow (Sat.) before she's sprung. 

Quite an emotional, stressful week, I must say.  I'm looking forward to my quiet weekend routine of laundry and cleaning...anything that screams of the normal.

Tuesday 1 September (already?!) 2009
Hair  Nothing new, still growing. 
I thought I may have found a solution to my thinning hair problem on top here:

http://beauty.hsn.com/toni-brattin-tonis-front-filler-classic_p-3345881_xp.aspx?...

But after reading through the reviews, I'm having second thoughts.  There are negative comments about the piece not being fine-hair friendly, which is what mine is, and other negative comments in general.  So I think I'll hang onto my $30 and just bide my time.  Like I've said before... if the thinning hair gets bad enough I'll just shave my head and wear wigs.   Cool

Wednesday 2 September 2009
Kiraela (http://www.longlocks.com/cgi-bin/yabb/YaBB.pl?num=1177457175/495) has been on my mind a LOT lately and I don't know why...  I hadn't thought of her in months but now suddenly BAM! there she is.  I hope she's all right.  I wish I had some way of contacting her.  Hmm, I believe I'll send an email to the account she has posted here and see if it reaches her. 

Hubby has been grumpy for the past few days, which is no fun.  I understand *why* he's grumpy, as he has a lot on his plate right now.  I just wish he wouldn't take it out on me.   Angry  So far I've managed not to succumb to the temptation of responding in kind but it gets more difficult every day to maintain my level of "no big deal"ness.  I'm giving him until the weekend to happy up, or mama's gonna have a little talk with her sugar daddy.   Cool

I hope talking over the weekend will help on the situation and make him aware of how it's been affecting you.  We've got a similar situation that's out of hub's hands yet the responsibility lands on his table and I understand that these things happen and I can take so much of it but if it continues I might have a talk within the next few weekends.

Kiraela responded to the email I sent and everything is fine with her.  I don't think she would mind me telling y'all that she and Paul moved back to the Baton Rouge area after a brief stay in Atlanta.  She's still growing her hair and is trying to find a job.  But in general all is well with her.   Smiley

Hair  So... the normal end-of-summer shedding has begun, and that coupled with my already thinning hair has me a bit freaked.  --Like I can afford to lose any more hair and NOT be able to replace it.   Sad   Every time I look in the mirror I swear my hair seems thinner, but I can't stop looking in the mirror.  I very much hope that I'm imagining the rate at which my hair is thinning, but I don't know...  God, I had such nice hair once upon a time.

Wednesday 9 September 2009 (09/09/09)   Cool

Hair  looks better today.  After washing this morning, I put on some mousse, sort of finger-combed it into place, allowed it to air dry for 30-40 minutes, then used a blow dryer.  After eating breakfast and dressing, I brushed my hair into place and sprayed it, and I have to say, it looks pretty dang good today.  Yesterday I just washed it--didn't use any product, so it was pretty flat and lifeless.  Note to self:  use the mousse!   Smiley

Thursday 10 September 2009
Hair  is good again today.  I repeated yesterday's steps:  wash, mousse, air dry, blow dry, brush and spray.  So I guess this will be my routine for a while.  I'm curious how my hair will look the next morning if I wear a sleep cap overnight?  Hmm, another experiment coming up... 

Other  Hubby officiated at what was technically his last lodge meeting of this year.  The next meeting will be the installation of new officers on October 10, an event family members are encouraged to attend (open lodge).  All he will have to do that night is basically hand over the gavel and sit down--something he's looking forward to doing.   Grin  He'll be attending Grand Lodge in Columbia on the 20th, 21st and 22nd (arriving home on the 22nd) and while he's sort of looking forward to the trip, I know he'll be glad when it's over. 

Hubby is also working on helping a friend open a gun and ammo store by October 1.  Well, hubby is the store manager, so of course he's helping.   Smiley  It'll be nice to be a two-income family once more.  I hope this store succeeds for more than one reason...personally, I'm tired of being poor.

Hair  Didn't wash my hair this morning; did an updo of sorts. 

Other  You know, I'm very happy Hubby has a job again, for more than the money reason.  It's giving him a sense of purpose, something to focus on other than his aches and pains (which are daily).  It also gives him a sense of pride in being able to help provide for his family again, which is important to a man's ego.
