Flu and Fake Follicles

I don't know why I keep misspelling flu as flue these days. Also, I misspelled misspelled for the 8,457th time in my life. Thank you spell check.

James has/had the flu. All was going fine this weekend and then, Monday morning..."Mom, I don't feel good." Rare is it that he "feels good" on a Monday so I was cynical. And yet, because I am a mush, I called him in. And he didn't move. All. Day. Long. So, the kid was sick. He remained sick until about halfway through today. Isn't it funny, with the flu, how one second they are as sick as can be in a "oh my...should I call the dr. now?...now?" kind of way and then the very next it's all "I'm hungry", "you haven't fed me anything", "let's play catch"? I would think it was, anyway, if it didn't create 3 extra loads of laundry. Sigh.

On to faking a non-gray head. Yes, I've tinted (that's the correct word ladies, tinted. Not dyed. You dye anegg, not your hair. Old beauty school habits die hard...don't get me started on plucking... ) and cut my own hair again. Nothing exciting. Nothing really to see. In fact, given that I don't much post any pictures here that are less than 10 years old of me, you wouldn't notice the difference. Unless your name is James.

Oh, I got my Texas license in the mail last week. The lady told me she would make sure it looked "Great, Sweet Sugar!" before she sent it along. She lied.

Ah, yes, you pluck a chicken, you *tweeze* your brows. ;o)

I'm so sorry James has been ill, but so happy to hear he's better.

You're sounding pretty good too. :o)

My DL pic looks terrible too... mostly I look grumpy. Last one, I looked sad. One of these days, I'll have a good one.

Hey Girl,

I sure hope everyone is feeling better around your house. I too get my hair "tinted" and the girl who does it is great. Not the whole head, just squirts and works it in for the right amount of time. There are always a few greys here and there, making me look like it is just starting to get them. Driver's License pictures are always awful. However, the one on my license is over 15 years old and I don't seem to mind it so much. I hope you are doing as good as you sound here. You are in my prayers and I love you.

Love and Hugs, Laurie

I need major tinting these days... and I'm laughing at how you've described James' flu... well, not too hard, but we are dealing with the same EXACT thing now. I had to pick him up after he got off the bus at school, brought him home, thought I'd have to take him to the doctor/hospital ASAP he was so upset...

An hour later.. "Mom, I'm hungry, I don't want to eat THAT" do we have anything else? ... Better safe than sorry, right?

License photos are the worst too, although I'm sure yours doesn't look half as bad as you think...

Stopping in to see how you are doing and to say "HI".

You're not supposed to look good in your DL pic. You're supposed to look like you just got pulled over, so they can recognize you at 2 am.

Wait, that was my theory when I was 22. Not so much now. But it's still an excuse for crappy photos.
