November Nor'Easter

So what would YOU do if you were faced with crazy high winds, flooding and beach erosion?

Well, here's what I did.

I decided...with hubby... that since we were both off work today due to power outages that we would take the boys to the mall. They were a little stir crazy and there's a play place.

The mall was only operating on half power, but was packed. Lots of parents with the same idea. Funny thing was that the play place was closed due to water damage. There was a collective sigh of worn out desperation to be heard through out the mall.

S had decided since we were at the mall that she would get her hair cut. I thought this was a grand idea... needed a trim myself.

So, 30 mins later I have...... a mullet! A freaking mullet! To add insult to injury she cut out the rest of my blond high lights... I know God doesn't make mistakes, but can I just day that he must have been sleeping when he chose the true color of my hair.

So I got home, trying not to cry over my mullet. Have you seen Kristen Stewarts recent do? The kinda weird mullet looking thing? yep... it's me. I like Twilight and all that, but..........

I decided that maybe it would be a good thing to add some blond highlights back in...... can you see where this is going? Should have just let well enough alone. I know have a spotted yellow mullet. And in the morning I am expected to spend the day with the mission committee on a planning retreat ...all day... no ability to get out to a professional to fix the spotted yellow. ;(

Do NOT ask, there will be no pictures.

My lesson for the day.... vanity is not a good thing! Stupid Nor'Easter!

Aww, no photos??? :) I'd love to see you girl. I bet you're beautiful with the new look.

Praying for you and your family's safety with the changes in weather.

Love you.

P.S. Love the blog look.

Please can I see a photo? You just crack me up and make power outages sound fun. Now what is a mullet? I have no clue. I hope the weather will get better soon.

Oh, my gosh! How do these people get their cosmetology license anyway??? Or is it that they can cut hair but they just don't listen??

Sorry about the mullet. Ugh... Is it really a true mullet?

Here's to learning humility.

Blessings,
Laura

Oh no, I am so sorry! A bad hair ordeal can totally ruin our attitudes, can't it? You gave me a good laugh, though...does that help at all? Hope you find a good fix this week that you'll be happy with.

Oh no, that is tooooo funny. I am dying laughing. I cannot tell you how many times I have had hair disasters in my life. The ONLY good thing about it is that it DOES grow out. Take heart, dear friend, this too shall pass :)

Sending you a HUGE hug
