Upcoming Events

The first item on the agenda is my friend Erica (AKA: NOT the boss of me) is coming to visit this weekend. Great news for all of us since we get to see her sweet baby Ella, and in case you didn't know, my boys LOVE baby girls. The twins are like old faithful dogs; they will retrieve toys of their own and literally place them at the feet of baby girls. Xander will coo at the baby, and direct the Twinkies on baby boundaries, all the while smothering the baby. I am going to admit that I am pretty excited to Ella too; I hear she has a knack for making animal noises, sticking fingers and metal objects in sockets, and attacking helpless dogs. I think she will fit in here just fine, I am glad to have Erica here too, as long as she doesn't try to boss me.

The second item is haircuts; yup I said it, haircuts. I have not cut my hair in over 2 1/2 years, and on Friday the 29th of Jan. 2010 I am making the move. I think the last time scissors touched my hair was Aug. 2nd 2007; my hair is now down to my mid-back, and I love it. However, since X is going to have to shave his head for surgery I made him an offer. I told him if you cut your hair, I will shave all my hair off. His smile was ear to ear and he agreed. For the last year or so he has been talking about the need to cut my "Girl Hair", and I always tell him "No way!". He is totally excited to be in charge of that decision, and I am going to make sure our barber allows him to make the first few cuts.

I will make sure that I take pictures (Before and After) and I will post them on Fri or Sat. To be very honest I am a bit nervous about this, I know it's only hair, but I may never get another chance to grow it out again. The fact that X is so excited about this, and I have an opportunity to show him that I am willing to help comfort him at all cost, wipes those nerves away. I have decided to donate my hair to wigs for kids ( ) since they allow kids to receive free wigs instead of charging people like Locks of Love (My original choice). There were a few other free places as well, but mostly for cancer patients; I have no problem with cancer patients, I just figured that since my son has to deal with this I might as well donate to a child centered organization.

Stay tuned for the hair cutting post. Also just a side note, the time between posts may more like a day or two as the time to go to the Mayo draws near. We just have a lot of stuff to finish up before we go.
