Swimming and Fake Salons

Day Two was a bit harder than day one so we ended it with the only thing that makes sense when you've moved houses, finished a semester, lost your dog, and you're stuck in a hospital watching your kid work harder than he should have to work.....

We ended it with swimming and hair dye.

The pool makes my boy so so happy at the end of the day.

Sarah Ellen and I don't mind the pool too much either since we sit in lounge chairs and drink free beer while he swims.....

And just for the heck of it, I've always wanted to try being a brunette. I mean why not change my hair when everything around me is changing as well? 
So thanks to my free hair dresser and a box from Target.......

Not sure if I'll stick with it, but at least it's not green which was an actual fear I had. I was armed with a hat and the name of a salon should this end poorly. (I mean, not that I doubted my sister, who once tried to cut my ponytail off while I was brushing my teeth......but that's neither here nor there....)

So there you have it.
Day Two:
Hard Work,
Pool Time,
And a new Hair Do.


  1. Who knew when I FINALLY got back up to speed on my "comment" responses to your awesome blog, that you would go into camo mode and change your hair.....had to look twice at the pic :) But I will say you are an awesome brunette too.....rockin' the look! How will "Brownie" react to "Blondie" choosing the box that brought them into the same "look".....keep us posted!

  2. Day two done!!! Our family has learned such a valuable lesson of living in the moment due to what Ashley is going through. The lesson was not desired, but SO beneficial. I think hitting the pool, drinking free beer, and coloring your hair is DEFINITELY evidence of living in the moment. That, or you are just going bat shit crazy. Ha! Love you and praying daily!

    1. I'm pretty sure you're closer with the bat shit crazy...... ;) praying for Ashley!
