Weather Change


Well, our beautiful spring-like weather has flown. We had freezing cold yesterday with frost. Now it's raining so it must have warmed up a bit. I am up early AGAIN!! I was so tired I went to bed at 10pm. The dog woke me at 2:30 to go potty. I wasn't able to go back to sleep. I hate this because I am wide awake until around 6 or 7 and then I get sleepy and can't seem to get enough rest in before it's time to wake up. Oh Chloe, what am I going to do with you???


Well, I put a rinse in my hair on Saturday. As soon as I put it on (before I rinsed it out) I felt more like myself with the darker color on my head. When I got out of the shower and saw the color I was disappointed. It was so much lighter than I thought it should be. In fact it looked weird to me. I asked my neighbor for her opinion and she said it looked good but it was too light. Great!! I called the number on the box and the lady at Clairol said the temporary colorings aren't meant for hair as white/gray as mine. I need to use a permanent color. So off to the store I went and bought a kit in a similar color and this time I bought L'oreal Preference which I used to use before when I colored my own hair. I have to wait a few days so I don't damage my hair. Also, yesterday a lady from my church who is a hairdresser told me I should buy some 1o% volume peroxide from the beauty supply to use instead of what comes in the kit. Because I am not trying to lighten my hair color I don't need that strength of peroxide, if will just dry my hair out. Good to know. I did get lots of compliments on my hair though, so that was nice.


I think I will read for a while and see if that doesn't make me sleepy. Catch you all later. Have a terrific Wednesday everyone!!

I don't have any problem sleeping for sure. I went to bed early and slept til my normal time straight through. It's like if it is dark I want to sleep. The sunshine and warmer days will perk me up, but the SAD disease is really bad in the winter time for me. I'm glad you are happy with your coloring. I still would never go back to all that fuss and mess again. Hope you get a nap in and wake up feeling refreshed! Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Let us know how your hair turns out!! Sounds exciting to me!! My Toby wakes me up all the time to potty in the middle of the night. I feel your pain!

Not being able to sleep, is the PITS.
I know first hand...I've got three different sleep disorders. I take a slew of medication, but some nights I still just can't fall asleep.

The weather here is beautiful today. Sunshine, temps in the 70's...but it's supposed to get cold again on Friday. Our poor trees, grass,and plants. They don't know what to do:-)

Post some photo's when you've redone your hair!

Can't wait to see the new hair colour! Our spring like weather has also flown the coop...I was hoping to cruise right through onto summer! :) Give Chloe a pat for me. :)

Hope you got some sleep!! I'm a very early riser so by the time I fall into bed (or on to the couch!), I literally pass out....
Even so, I do go through periods of time that I burn the candle at both ends---getting 2-4 hours of sleep a night. BOY OH BOY....that can really wreak havoc on your system! In my younger days--I could go on little to no sleep and function just fine (or so I thought). But, I often wonder if my sleeping habits contributed to my weight issues (many studies suggest this). Oh well....

So....even though you didn't have the exact shade of hair color you were seeking--you got compliments! Can't wait to hear what you think when you do get the right shade!

We're feeling some Spring like weather here but we still have piles of snow---ugly black snow!!

Onward!

This weather is crazy! Sixty five degrees one day and then 40 and rain the next. Oh well, I guess that's an Oregon early spring for you.

I'm always awake at the crack of dawn. That's when I really get going and accomplish what I want to do for the day.
