Mission: Hot Mom Hair...Accomplished!

I was in a frump. That's the physical version of the emotional, funk.

Yes, atop my head, used to reside a tired bunch of overgrown highlights, split ends and shaggy "nothingness".
But not any more!!

I am now, sportin' "Hot Mom Hair"...and I feel fabulastic, today! Tomorrow (when I'm left to my own styling devices) who knows, but today...look out world!

Mr. Wonderful even came home on his lunch break to take some photos...okay, I'm totally lying...he came home to eat lunch, I bombarded him at the door, shoved the camera in his hands, and dragged him outside...where he made me pretend I was a model ("show me whatcha got, give it to me baby, pout, oh yeah..." and so on and so forth...)

And this, is what I have to show you!

My sorry attempt at the "model pout" (it's okay to laugh, I nearly peed my pants when I saw this one!):

"Oh thank you, Lord, for 'Hot Mom Hair'!!"

Sassy, side view:

And, just plain, ol' me:

Oh, and a side note by me...that cyclops lookin' thing between my eyes? That is the direct result of taking a tweezers to a deep little pimple...think I would've been better off with the tiny little zit, but now I'm stuck with this monster scab. Lesson learned.

  7. ::whistle:: Looks great! I love that your husband was asking you to pose.

    I am always concerned about styling my hair the day after a cut since it pretty much ensures disappointment. Hopefully you'll do great, though, and continue to feel fabulastic!

  8. Look at you and your hot mom hair! You look great!

  9. ooooh-la-la! LOVE the haircut! I think you should have a photo-shoot tomorrow to show us how it goes when you do it yourself! I always love my new haircut until I do it myself!

Our Colorado Trip

One week ago today, I had skied myself down a mountain (several times) and survived.

Oh, you guys...Colorado has captured my heart. I loved our vacation like you wouldn't believe and while I am not (nor will I ever be) a world class skier (let's be honest, greens are where you'll find me...and I won't be whizzing down them, either!), the mountains and the skiing and the fresh air and the walking everywhere? I grabbed a hold of me and doesn't seem to be making any moves to let go!

Check out this view from our hotel room!!

I just told someone today, "If I had had my kids with me, I'm not sure I would've come back." I felt so healthy and vibrant and alive...ugh, I wanna go back!

Funny story, the first evening we were in Beaver Creek, we walked down to the village and I got my first real look at the ski runs...I thought, "Huh. They don't look so bad." and we went about our business and had supper and went ice skating and tucked ourselves in…

Sludge.'s like a thick sludge, hard to wade through, difficult to know which way is up, feeling like you'll never get out of it.
Today was a rough day. I'm not sure if it was just setting in, or that grief coupled with today being Baby Girl's and my birthday, was just a bad combination, but whatever it was, I found it hard to keep the tears at bay.
Just when I thought I'd have it pulled together, I'd hear or read the words, "I'm sorry", or field a phone call, or think about the amazing outpouring of love and support...and the tears would flow. Fast and furious.
I've discovered that my rock, my strength, comes from being around family; specifically, my husband. When I'm alone, the thoughts and memories coming flooding in and the tears come pouring out. My brother-in-law, Verd, was an amazing man. Actually, "amazing" doesn't even do him justice, I wish I could find a word great enough to describe the kind of man he was.

My heart…

What I've learned.

Tomorrow marks the return to a "new reality" for our family.
After a couple of good days, I know everyone is apprehensive about what tomorrow will bring. I guess we'll just have to see.
This past week has taught me a lot...not the least of which was how many lives my brother-in-law had touched. Over 2,500 people waited in line, each for about 2 hours, to pay their respects to him at his wake. I was blown away...we were ALL blown away. At his funeral, the church held more people than it had ever held before...Christmas mass and Easter Sunday included.
Our priest was even amazed.
I also learned, probably most importantly, just what an amazing family I married into. Just how wonderful they all are, how strong they all are, how faithful they all are. As I spent this week "disconnected", I realized I was more connected than I had ever my family.
I learned that the things that matter most in life are those that can't have a value placed on them. It's no…
