Little Bit of Boring

Hello friends! I haven’t posted in forever and I guess it’s because life has been a little bit boring around here. It’s a good thing because sometimes life gets so crazy that I can’t think straight! There’s been many nights where the boys and I just sit around and watch tv, read or play Uno. It’s been really simple and I can’t help but want the rest of the year to go like this!

We have had some excitement. The boys are getting some much needed haircuts! Here is a picture of C and K. E got a haircut last night but I don’t have a picture of him yet.

Haircuts!
Haircuts!

I haven’t had much time for reading. I’m not sure why, I just haven’t felt like reading or writing. I spend the evenings with the boys and then when they go to bed, I’m so exhausted I go to bed too! Must have something to do with it getting dark so early. I have been listening to my audiobook to and from work and that’s really the only reading that I have done lately. I just finished it.

I have never heard of Sarah and Angelina Grimke and their work as the first women to fight for equal rights for women as well as equal rights/abolition of slavery! I would encourage everyone to read this book. It’s very good!!

Locks of Love

I haven’t had a haircut in FOREVER! I was at the point that something needed to be done because although I like having long hair, it hurt my head to put my hair in a ponytail. My hair was so heavy! So I needed a haircut, but I thought “Why not donate it instead of throwing all that hair away?”.

I looked into places to donate hair and decided on Locks of Love (http://www.locksoflove.org/). Minimum requirement to donate is 10 inches. I had at least 12 inches to donate! It’s really easy to donate.

So I made an appointment. imagejpeg_2 Look how long my hair is here!!!
