Gads. Call it Murhpy's law. You get a great new "do"...and are all excited about getting up and fixing it all special only to look in the mirror and see a GROTESQUELY RED EYE. Ugh. Not sure how or why, but a blood vessel has let me down and turned my eye a yucky bright red. My first day of trying "vanity" on for size and now this...(of course, it's instant karma for wanting to enjoy vanity for

Oh well. I guess thats why they made so watch me do my laundry on a dreary cloudy my dollar store sunglasses with my lovely new

I have to admit, I was a little nervous about the reactions from my SA friends about my extravagance yesterday...and could not have been more surpised ( and pleasantly) at the support you gave me and how many of you said I was "worth it".

As a mom, wife and frugal wanna-be, it is hard to justify things that are just for ME. Thanks for helping me understand that many of you splurge on yourselves and that it is important to do that (once in a while anyway)

Today is laundry, housework and getting ready for the next work-week...but first a morning cup of coffee and visit to this site!!

I hope you all have a good one! just occured to me that this thing will take 10-14 days to go away...and I will be on my vacation for most of that.....ARGH. My sunglasses will be a very familiar site!!!

    Aww Ray, so sorry to hear about that. I wonder what caused it? Well, just wink at yourself when looking in the mirror and know that your hair looks great! Wink

    Dang! Well, enjoy the pretty hair do. I was thinking about you today when I went to SuperCuts and bought a box of hair dye at the drug store. I agree that we should not feel guilty spending money on special treats - and I would have done it except that I NEEDED a haircut and color today and couldn't wait to book an appointment with a salon. I hope your vacation is spectacular.
