It feels like it’s been a series of extremely long days and super short sleeps these last couple of days. Today is one of those days where I’d rather be in bed than doing anything else. Unfortunately, it almost never works out the way I want to.

I went and got an unsatisfying haircut today. The last time I got my hair cut, it was long layers with side swept bangs. I’m not really sure what I want haircut-wise. I know that I want to keep my length (because it took me a really long time to get it this long in the first place), I need something low maintenance (because the only thing I know how to do with my hair is piggy tail braids and ponytails, and I don’t have things like a curling iron or blow dryer or even hairspray!), I don’t want a ton of volume (even though, I probably should. But I like having my hair straight and flat against my skull, so that you don’t get the impression that I’m trying to create something I don’t have!) and that’s pretty much the only things I know for sure I want for my hair.

Every single time I say that, hairdressers are automatically like, “Long layers it is then!” They tried to mix it up by cutting shorter layers, but it pretty much looks identical to how my hair did before, except now I have bangs that look like bangs…

I think to get the kind of drastic change that I desire, I’d have to either go short or I’d have to get my hair dyed or I’d have to get a perm of some sort. Which I’ve been thinking about alot lately. I don’t want my hair to look that crazy good, until I do something about my eyebrows…

Kaeidyn and Carter came with me, while Kenzie and Keirnan stayed at home with The Boyfriend. Kaeidyn had a great time. She got to help fold towels and collect them up, she drew pictures for all the hairdressers, she just couldn’t sit still if her life depended on it. Carter was happy right up until I was done getting my hair cut (which took almost two hours!), and then once I was done he got pretty fussy.

I went out and finally saw my brother on Wednesday. I was gonna write all about it that day, but I needed time to process everything that happened. Mama T has come back into town, so we went out there to meet with his social worker, who looked absolutely nothing like what I had pictured from talking to him on the phone. I had alot of complaints when I came home about the way things were handled during the meeting, and one of these days I’ll write about it.

Goober looks like he’s doing much better in there than he was out of there though. They’ve got him on some meds, and they seem to calm him down quite a bit. They’re making him take showers on a regular basis, so he’s nice and clean looking. He wants to come home really badly and I just keep telling him that they’re not going to keep him forever and he’s just gotta put his mind towards becoming sane.

We went out for a smoke, and I’m standing there, and all of a sudden I see a guy that I had brought home from Ponoka when I stayed there. Not in like a sexual sort of sense, he had nowhere else to live, so I offered my place. He ended up not living with us long, because he is in much the same situation my brother is in. But it was nice to run into an old crazy buddy of mine 😉

I cleaned quite a bit yesterday, not really because I wanted to, but more because it was absolutely necessary. Made some chocolate chip pancakes for lunch and a delicious roast beef dinner. If a real chef saw the way I cooked a roast beef dinner though, surely they would die of a heart attack. They’d just be like, “Uh, you.. You can’t… Stop… What’re you… Ouch”, and then they’d collapse and die! Kaeidyn helped me rub it down with spices and butter, and Kenzie helped me put it in the oven and Keirnan closed the oven door. It was a good cooking experience. Rarely do the kids actually get to help me much with dinner, because my kitchen is small and they end up just getting in the way all the time.

I think when The Boyfriend gets paid next, I’m gonna force him to take me to the laundromat and just do all the laundry in one day. Get home and put it all away. Because it is seriously out of control, and from having most of it in laundry baskets and me being the only one who knows which is clean and which is dirty, clean clothes keep ending up in dirty laundry baskets and vice versa. My dryer keeps overheating after one load of drying, so I can only get two or three loads of laundry done a day. And since I tend to not finish what I start, laundry ends up just piling up and piling up and never seems to get anywhere closer to done.

Well I guess that’s really all I have to write about today. I’ve been working really hard on getting The Rantings Network Headquarters (which has moved) set up, and I guess it’s going okay. I need to go back to school for web design something fierce. I can’t wait until I’m off of maternity leave, or even until I don’t have to be physically there to feed Carter. Still no luck with the formula…
