I thought I'd pop over here and give you a little update on us (while my hair soaks up the coconut oil I just slathered on it!) Well, now that I have your attention…(heh heh heh)
Doug is on spring break this week and we are enjoying our day together today. He and Ike stayed home from therapy. Ike is napping in his bed while Doug is chopping veggies to make some yummy chili.
I have recently embraced the hair that God gave me (ha!) and got a haircut that will let my curls do their thing. I have always had stick-straight hair, until my gray started coming in. My gray hair is curly and mostly fuzzy. I really hated the fuzzy, and I hated trying to wear straight hair styles that just didn't work, unless I took lots and lots of time with them.
So, I got a lovely fresh hair cut, lots of great advice from Beth, my hair stylist, and began my research into how to manage this hair.
I found a great site and am attempting to do all the things that will help my hair be pretty and healthy. (The coconut oil treatment is here, if you are interested.) So far, so good, I guess. Not many people were brave enough to say anything about my new 'do at church on Sunday. I think perhaps they thought I'd got a bad perm and didn't want to bring it up! lol!
Doug is working on our front porch this week. It has been stacked full of "stuff" since we moved here in 2008. The time has come to clean it OUT! And he is doing a really great job on that this week.
Isaac has not been sleeping well, again, which is so disappointing. We think it's seizure activity. He was really SUPER vocal all weekend, and didn't sleep much. So yesterday he slept from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. yesterday. Then he slept from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. last night. Now he has gone back to sleep around 11 a.m. He is certainly getting caught up on his sleep; but we are also keeping an eye on his temperature and his breathing, just in case a cold is brewing.
I have been super busy doing the things I like the most – writing, reading, making jewelry, and singing. I've been able to be back in the church choir for a few weeks now, and I am enjoying it so much. I participated in an online jewelry challenge which was so much fun! I sold 2 sets of jewelry over the weekend, too!
Yesterday, I signed up for a Do Over Challenge. A jewelry artist will be sending me a piece of her jewelry that is just not quite up to par to sell. I will make it "over" and then post my pics on the same day all the other challengers post their "do overs". Doesn't that sound exciting?!! I can't wait to see what I get to work on!
Well, my 30 minutes of soaking up coconut oil are almost over, so I guess I need to finish this up. I hope you are having a lovely spring and that you are being able to spend time with those you love. I also hope you are doing things that make you happy and challenging yourself just a bit! 🙂
