Head hurts, tired, and glad the day's about out. Today wasn't bad, just busy. And I was going to try to beta, and no one would leave me alone long enough to do it.  Was really torquing me off.

And I'm trying to teach the eldest how to knit. Seems that one of their service projects at school is making a scarf for the local homeless shelter. Each student is required to knit one. The eldest has done some really odd things to his scarf. I usually can correct it, but I look at some of his knitting and it takes me a while to figure out how to get it fixed.

Today was extremely busy, with just work busy-ness mostly. I'm sitting here chillin' right now, but will be heading to bed shortly.

Still very short tempered for the most part. *sigh*

It is raining like crazy here -- and very, very,very cold. Okay...maybe not that cold, but it's really cold by October standards. And it was snowing today when I went out to get my preschooler from preschool. I was not amused.

Took the oldest out to finish getting supplies to put together his Halloween costume. He's going to be Santa Claus this year. My others plan to be Harry Potter, The Thing (Fantastic 4 Thing), and SpongeBob. Quite the eclectic group.

 And I'm sitting here listening to the GoF soundtrack and enjoying it.

Happy Friday...

*hugs* to [livejournal.com profile] sherylyn  because she is the bestest.  I went to the hairdressers on Saturday to have the head o' hair coloured, cut, conditioned and such. I was talking with the said hairdresser about the fact that my hair never feels the way it does leaving the solon when I do it.  I use a straightener on it, all the same products she does, and my hair ends up flyaway, dry feeling and just basically unmanagable.  The hairdresser said that it's the straightener that makes a difference and the ones that you buy in a drugstore do not get hot enough to work on the hair (or maybe it's just my hair it doesn't work on).  The straightener they use in the solon is a professional grade, and it can be purchased in the solon.

For $120.00.

I decided not to buy it then and there, because I had just forked over $160.00 to have the hair coloured (I take "extra colour" because of how much hair I have), conditioned, cut, and styled, plus my eyebrows waxed (yes, I pay for pain), plus I had to buy conditioner for home.  So, I decided to think about it before I purchased.

I also have to fork over money to have my engagement ring fixed.  To the tune of $300.00.

Anyway, [livejournal.com profile] sherylyn and I were Y!Ming on Saturday night, and I was telling her my saga. She told me she loved her hair straightener, that it gets super-hot, and that it was reasonably priced (around 30 bucks) at Sally's Beauty Supply.  So I finally found a convenient Sally's and stopped yesterday and bought the recommended straightener.

I could just kiss [livejournal.com profile] sherylyn .

Best 40 bucks I've spent on a hair appliance ever.

I played with it some last night, and then again this morning, and I've had people stopping and telling me how wonderful my hair looks.  They want to know if I went to the salon last night.

My hair looks and feels like it does when I leave the salon.  And this is coming from the gal who does not primp.  At all.  But I love the way my hair looks and feels after using this product.  'Tis wonderful.

So thank you, [livejournal.com profile] sherylyn  , for sharing this gem with me.  *hugshugshugshugs* and a little bit of Hugh just for good measure. *grin*

In other news, I'm calling the doc today to work on adjusting my hormones.  His day off was yesterday.  I'm hoping we get things set soon.  I can't stand the way I'm acting.  Esp. at home.  At least I realize what the problem is. That's part of the battle.  And at least I'm willing to do something about it.

And as always, please click the link in my LJ for breast cancer.  Help fund those mammograms.

This is a wonderful story of a survivor of breast cancer. It came up tonight on my yahoo, and I thought I'd share.  It can be found here:

It's that time of year again, where I get on my soapbox and preach Breast Cancer awareness.

October is Pink Ribbon Month, and for those that aren't familiar with Pink Ribbon Month, it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Please encourage your loved ones to get annual mammographies They can save a life.

Please click this link (or the one under my soapbox on my LJ) and click the pink "Fund Free Mammograms" button.  Every click will fund 3 mammograms during the month of October.


This morning has been a bit hellatious.  Just busy at work. I've been working on safety and updates with that. Last night, my internet up and croaked.  I couldn't get on either the desktop or wireless.  I was most annoyed.  It was up and running this morning, so that's a good thing.

We're having a lunch dept. meeting today, instead of our usual breakfast one.  The boss had to be at another meeting today at our usual time.  So we're having pizza.  Yum!
