I seriously have so much to talk about...some days there is nothing in my brain, but today there is overload.
The Carol Brady/Florence Henderson Look
I have had pretty much the same hair-do for the past 3 or 4 years, so I have decided to let it grow out for a bit. I have tried this before - but, I always feel like I get this Florence Henderson look to my hair. I have been so happy with the way it has been looking for the past several weeks - but today - Carol Brady made an appearance. It is not so much that I have a mullet, but it likes to do this weird flip up thing at the ends and curl down on top. Seriously, it is not a good look. The question is - can I get past this weird phase and actually continue to grow it out. I guess only time will tell - one month away is my appointment to see Taylor (the best hair dresser in the world at Cabin Red Salon) - so will I tell her to chop or just to trim???
Noah and the Arc
I can't really imagine what 40 days and nights of rain is like. It has been raining here for 4 days straight - and not only is it depressing just to see gray skies and a wet ground, it has not gotten pretty dangerous to drive in certain areas of Northwest Arkansas because the flooding has started. I have lived here for 11 years and I have never seen it rain like this. You almost have to have a boat in some areas just to get around. I am lucky to live on top of a hill and I love that! We keep joking around at work that if we see a large boat (an arc) go by - we better hop on while we can. :) For all my peeps in Texas reading this, I really just wish I could bottle up the rain and send it your way.
Have you ever had a friendship that just falls by the wayside, but you really don't know what happened? I had one of those and it had really been weighing on me for quite some time. I decided to use the power of facebook and send her a message since I can do that without actually being "friends" with her on FB. Right after hitting send, I wondered if it was the right thing to do - would she laugh at me for trying to apologize for the end of our friendship, would she find it sincere, who knows what was going to happen. Then, over a week passes and you really begin to question if your email was the right thing to do. I feel like today a peace has washed over me as I got a reply back from this friend from years past. Of course, she did as much apologizing, if not more, than I did. I am not sure what will become of our friendship over the next few months - but, I am so grateful that I reached out in a heart felt way and it was received warmly. It is amazing how little things can cause such great problems. I would love to hand out this one piece of advice...if this has happened to you, reach out to the person because they are probably just as scared to reach out to you!
My former boss (a couple of times actually) is adopting a little girl from China right now - and it is such a joy to see their new blog posts everyday and see how much they are falling in love with that precious little girl. I am going to share the link with you all here too so you can all pray for their safe return in just a few short days.
Thanks for listening to my rambling for tonight - I will sign out for now and eat my yummy dinner (blackened salmon!) since my husband is yelling for me to come eat!
