Weave? Me? NEVER!!!!

So after my final BC, I felt insecure about my five-head (a forehead that is longer than the normal 4-head) and decided to get a weave.

Now I don't care for women who wear fake hair and I said that I would NEVER ever ever ever ever be caught with another woman's hair on my head....

But I wasn't about to walk out the door with my hair looking like this:

I quickly ran over to the closest African hair salon and had them put a weave in. At first I thought my hair looked ok...

....but it started to grow on me! Plus it meant I didn't have to worry about doing my hair in the morning! Just add water! LOL

Since I'm a biggest tom-boy, that was the greatest news ever! LOL But with the weave I put in, it means I couldn't wear my normal clothes. On any given day, even on Sundays before I go to church, I would rather throw on some jeans and a t-shirt! I only dress up for church because my mother would throw the biggest fit if I didn't. And you really didn't have to ask me twice about skipping some heels and wearing sneakers!

But with the new hairstyle, not only did I have a new look, but I had to revamp my wardrobe!

In the meantime, I'll just enjoy my hair! :0)

Sound Familiar?



Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

Somehow I feel better even though I have it!!

Recently, I was diagnosed with A.A.A.D.D.: Age Activated Attention Deficit Disorder.

This is how it manifests:

I decide to water my garden.

As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing.

As I start toward the garage,
I notice mail on the porch table that
I brought up from the mail box earlier.

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car.

I lay my car keys on the table,
put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
and notice that the can is full.

So, I decide to put the bills back
on the table and take out the garbage first.

But then I think,
since I'm going to be near the mailbox
when I take out the garbage anyway,
I may as well pay the bills first.

I take my check book off the table,
and see that there is only one check left.

My extra checks are in my desk in the study,
so I go inside the house to my desk where
I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking.

I'm going to look for my checks,
but first I need to push the Pepsi aside
so that I don't accidentally knock it over.

The Pepsi is getting warm,
and I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold.

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi,
a vase of flowers on the counter
catches my eye--they need water.

I put the Pepsi on the counter and
discover my reading glasses that
I've been searching for all morning.

I decide I better put them back on my desk,
but first I'm going to water the flowers.

I set the glasses back down on the counter,
fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote.

Someone left it on the kitchen table.

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I'll be looking for the remote,
but I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table,
so I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs,
but first I'll water the flowers.

I pour some water in the flowers,
but quite a bit of it spills on the floor.

So, I set the remote back on the table,
get some towels and wipe up the spill.

Then, I head down the hall trying to
remember what I was planning to do.

At the end of the day:

the car isn't washed
the bills aren't paid
there's a warm can of Pepsi sitting on the counter
the flowers don't have enough water,
there's still only 1 check in my check book,
I can't find the remote,
I can't find my glasses,
and I don't remember what I did with the car keys.

Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day,
and I'm really tired.

I realize this is a serious problem,
and I'll try to get some help for it,
but first I'll check my e-mail....

Do me a favor.

Tell everyone you know,
because I don't remember who I've told.

Don't laugh...if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!!

My new ticker!

So I have a new hair ticker!!!


I decided to stop looking like a Barbie doll and decided to no longer relax (using chemicals to straighten) my hair! So since November 2008, I've been natural (free of chemicals) and LOVING my beautifully natural curls!

Actually I've always wanted to stop relaxing my hair but I thought I wouldn't be able to hide my five-head (four-head w/ extra inches for those of you who don't know lol). Then I started freaking out because I read something about chemicals in the relaxers seeping into the brain after a period of long use. Even if it is false, I'm glad that I jumped off the relaxer/Barbie Doll bandwagon.

So here's my new ticker:

My hair reached down my back (underneath my armpit) in the beginning of November 08.

Then I started chopping off my hair, since I didn't have enough patience to let go through a transition (not relaxing the hair but keeping the relaxed/straight ends).

The pic below is of me at the end of November 08:

My hair started growing quickly! (Jan 31, 09)

For my birthday (2/4/09), I decided to re-cut it and color it.
It came out great!

Then I really became frustrated and chopped it all off!

Which left me looking like this:

Then I chopped off some more:

And then I looked like this:

Well long story short, I would do it all again if I had to. I love the hair that GOD blessed me with!
