Hey, Red!

I am having a bit of a mid-life crisis, I think. Actually, no, I think it has nothing to do with my age, and much more to do with my newly found free time. I have not yet come up with a constructive way to spend my free time, so I am feeling very, very restless. Plus, things have been slow at work. A snail's pace would be faster. It is quite a change in pace, quite a change. So I am a bit restless. I've always had a dreamy, restless spirit anyway. I have never, ever been perfectly content with what I have. (I have never really thought of it exactly that way before. Hm.) I always want to do more -at least I say I do-I want to write, and be a P.I., and start some crazy business, and blah blah blah. I felt that way even when I was working long hours. Imagine me now with all this time! I will either really start doing some of these things, or perhaps I will go stir crazy. We'll see.

In the meantime, I quelled my restless spirit by getting red hair. Overall, the effect is not that dramatic, but a few streaks here and there are a red color that does not occur in nature. It's my rock star hair. If I could find the camera, I would share. Let's hope I find something else to do with my time before my next hair appointment.

Hey Melissa,
I met you at the wedding, that wasn't legal! Thank God, that worked out, what a nightmare. I couldn't wait for them to get married, and then Val calls to tell me it wasn't legal....

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I started it a year ago, but had to delete most of it 2 weeks ago due to a case of cyberbullying. Some lady wrote and said she knew who I was, and who may family was, and what would my boss or my husband's boss say if they saw my blog or what would happen if a sex offender found my children through my blog. She claimed to know me, but wouldn't tell me her name. It was creepy. So I saved and deleted it and feel like I am starting over. It stinks, cause I like blogging and the great friends I have met. So many great people out there!

I have really enjoyed reading some of your posts, you have a gift with words. I love how you write. No wonder you and Val are such good friends. We have to get her to start a blog!

Your son is so beautiful! You dogs are very cute too. It looks like things have been going well for you since you left O'charlies. Keep writing!! I think you should think about writing a book, you really have the talent.

Take care and please stop by again soon.
