New Hair & Bowling

We decided to have some fun today. You know, it's Saturday. That means no doctors will call, no insurance companies will call, no hospitals will call. Which means I don't have to answer the phone!

Time for a little fun.

The local family fun center, Grand Station, generously donated LOTS of gift cards to us. So...we bowled, played laser tag and lots of video games. Let's just say this was the first time we told the children it was time to go and they didn't beg for more quarters!! Thank you, to our friend Bill and Grand Station!!!

I thought you would enjoy some photos of the day. I also thought you'd like to take a peek at my new hair color. I've always wanted to go really, really blonde and have done it a little at a time by sticking my little toe a little into the water each time. I've always left a tad of my original color in my hair. Well, yesterday, not so. I erased all trace of the dark, dark brown mess growing older and having babies has done to my hair. I love it! and I love Charlotte! She's the best! If you want a new style, you should go to Chrome. I went drastic because, well, if I don't like it, it might not last very long. haha But no fear, I love it!! Did I say that already? So at least Charlotte knows how I want my wig if I do have chemo. I love you, Charlotte.

Without further delay, here are the photos.

There's an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth...A right time to cry and another to laugh. Ecclesiastes 3:1 & 4
