Hair By Wal-Mart Salon

No.  It's worse than that.  I cut it myself.  I can't STAND going to the hairdresser.  Everything smells all weird and there are people who like to do the chit-chat thing.  I don't know.  I never know what to say to anyone during the chat times and I'm sure I will come across as unfriendly or totally irrelevant/on a tangent.  Then there is the, "Eew, who did your hair?" and "What product have you been using?" questions that usually come up.  Normal people don't call 'em "product."  Half the time I use dish soap in the sink but I don't want to tell them that. 


  1. Great job! You look so chic, dahling.

  2. I like the hair cut!

    I hate how the hair people want to put so many "products" in my hair too. I think the haircut should stand along with out 18 pounds of gel in it. I said that one time to a hairdresser. It was not well received.

  4. Ahhh.. you look so cute!!!

    Everytime I go to a salon they make me feel uncomfortable. I hate getting highlights put it yet I do it and they always give me the look and say "why did you take so long to come in?"

    I want to tell them it's because they can be real snobs at times and I like to avoid them.

  5. "What product have you been using?" questions that usually come up. Normal people don't call 'em "product." Half the time I use dish soap in the sink but I don't want to tell them that."

    That is just classic... Errmmm can't we tell them just to get a reaction??? Mwhahahaha...

    By the way the haircut looks so very cute. I should wander over to yours to get mine done!

  6. My wife has threatened to let me cut my own hair when I ask. But I haven't man-ed up enough try it yet.

    I use baking soda about once a week for my hair. Sometimes I also toss lemon juice on top of that to make it fizz. Science on my head! The baking soda works great to get the grease out.


  7. Beautiful and not a grey hair in sight! *JEALOUS!* I actually have a lady who comes to my house and it doesn't cost any more. She doesn't have any "product" thank goodness, because all of that stuff costs like 5x's more here. She doesn't even charge extra to come to my house. I don't go to a salon for all the same reasons--hate it!

  8. Well, I don't call it 'product', and I don't ask what anyone uses on their hair....frankly, I don't care. :) Most people do cut their own hair from time to time, and men are the worst!

    I think you did just fine, and that's my 'professional' opinion, too. ;)

    And, if you ever have a stylist say 'Ew, who does your hair' you should ALWAYS say, 'Why, I think you did it the last time'. Being humble is a huge part of being professional.

  9. LOL I loooove it... that's a good one!

    Bonnie, it's Revlon ColorSilk #42. I have black and grey hair naturally just like Mrs. Frankenstein.

  10. It's really cute on you! My friend, Sandy, cuts her own hair, and it always looks really darling, too.

Reading Curriculum: ABeka Book and BJU Press

Did you know that in the state of Missouri, homeschoolers must teach reading as a separate subject?  I don't know how anyone could homeschool well without teaching their child to read... but OK. 

I got many of my ABeka books used and collected them over time.  I'm glad I came across these readers early in my homeschooling years.  It teaches children to read step-by-step.  I don't think I've seen a more effective reading program for the elementary years.  The children love the stories, and what I appreciate about them is that there is a rich and varied language even in simple-to-read books in this series. 

My set is pretty old, and some are even from the 1960's and no longer listed in the reading series.  I think if I had to do things over again somehow, I think I'd just spend on a curriculum set and be done with it.  That's the thing, though, with homeschooling.  By the time you figure out what the perfect curriculum is for you, your children have graduate…

Homeschooling is NOT So Hard.

I wish I'd have known this starting out. I wish I'd have known that it's actually LESS work to just homeschool your child, than to be an "involved parent" at school.

We've enjoyed elementary school with our older boys. *Most* of the teachers were actually pretty competent and caring (the others, I save for another blog post, another day...). We had the children involved in extra activities like the Spanish Club or Service Club, or choir, and they got a fair bit out of the experience.

But it's a LOT of work.

You get about a ton of worksheets that must be done by a certain time. Usually on a day when you're sick or have no time. You get the phone calls about this or that, and about a zillion sheets per day that sometimes contain important news, so you MUST go through them daily. The schools also *love* to throw in half days, teacher in-service days and early dismissals. Not so bad, unless you have children at more than one school and the schedu…

Holiday Gifts for the Homeschool Teacher!

Merrymaking hint:  leave this post up on your phone/ computer for your family to "accidentally" find!  Let the magic begin!

 All teachers love a little appreciation every now and then, including homeschoolers.   I don't know about you, though, but I don't want any apple crap.  So first rule:  no apple crap! 

Otherwise I'm pretty open.  I love getting gifts, even if it's just something small or simple.  One thing I love is when my children want to help out and make lunch or clean up or put their laundry away.  Or just behave themselves and get their math done.  This is a really big thing when you think about it.  

And from the adults in my life, the gift of coffee always shows love - or rather, someone not wanting an "I need coffee" emergency in the middle of winter after a big snowstorm.  Somehow, I always have a lot of coffee in my pantry during the winter months.  (Guess why.) Thanks, D!
