This, That and a Giveaway

Thanks for all of your input on my new 'do!! I'm going Friday to get it cut! Mrs. C is going to go with me. You know, for emotional support. =P Either that, or she's going to document the moment by taking copious amounts of pictures. Hehe. I was kind of on the fence about it when I posted last, but after yesterday I decided I'm most definitely going to cut my hair. After nearly sweating to death blow drying and then straightening my hair, I made the decision. Didn't take long, did it!? I told my mom today that I was going to cut it short...apparently she pictured a pixie cut. She should know me better than that! She chopped my pretty hair off when I was little - giving me the "mushroom cut" - because I was always sick and my thick, thick hair would hold in a fever real nice. I was stuck with that cut from age 5 to 12, when I finally convinced her to let me grow it out. And now she's the one begging me not to cut it. Oh, how the tables have turned! After all of your input (and my hubby's of course) this is the cut I'm going to get:


Yesterday was a busy day! I "worked" at the museum for 3 hours, came home and then headed off to my first real FRG meeting. The last one I went to was attended by about 5 people, so I don't count that. Although, maybe I should because only 7 wives from Joe's company showed up to the battalion FRG meeting last night. *sigh* At least I did meet a few other ladies, though. Our FRG leader (company commander's wife) is enlisting us for help. I think she's determined to get me to be her "second in command," but I'm not about to do that! When she said, "I just need someone to help me out and be at meetings when I can't make it," I instantly pictured me leading meeting after meeting because she "couldn't make it." You know the people in group projects in high school/college who always ended up doing 80-90% of the work? That was me. Well, ladies, this ain't high school and I'm not about to play that game anymore! I'll be more than happy to help her out, but I'm not leading meetings. Am I being too...overdramatic about this? I mean, what do I know about the Army? Zilch. What do I know about the FRG and leading meetings? Nada. So, how on earth am I supposed to lead a meeting?!

Besides that, there was a smidgen of drama. I'd been IM'ing the aforementioned wife I met at the deployment ceremony back in June. Before I left, apparently she'd asked me if I could give her a ride. I totally missed that one. Not to mention, I thought I'd sent her a text when I got there but I didn't hit the "send" button. Well, I thought I did but apparently my iPhone didn't think I did. So, when she arrived, I got a go-to-you-know-where look and the cold shoulder. Great. After a few minutes of chatting with the other ladies at the table, I finally got her to speak to me. She invited me to work out with her at the gym today, but I couldn't. =( I'm afraid that's just going to cause more drama. *sigh*

But, the good news is that when I got home last night, I was able to Skype with Joe!!!!! He finally got internet in his room, so we can talk! I'm actually waiting for him to get on right now. =D Hehehe. It's sooo nice to be able to see his face and know that he's ok. You know? One more thing that makes deployment suck a little bit less. =) That's what it's all about, right? Finding things that make it suck less - aka the silver lining. 

Now, for the giveaway. =) One of my favorite bloggers, {who I hope to meet soon!} JG, is having a giveaway!!!!! =D She's giving away a Scentsy plug-in and 3 scents to go along with it! I don't know about you, but I'm thrilled about this giveaway. I love all things Scentsy! I have one large one and one plug in. I'd absolutely love to have another plug in for my bathroom! So head on over to her blog and enter! To be able to win this, she's requiring that 30 lovelies (aka bloggers) enter her giveaway. So click on her button {above} and get your toosh over to her blog! =)

Oh, and please leave a comment telling her I sent you there! Pretty please!!!

I think the haircut will look fabulous! Can't wait to see pics! :)

I hear you about FRGs. Our FRG leader has scheduled 1 - count 'em - 1 family-friendly event all class. (That is, only 1 event where she hasn't said "don't bring your kids!") Well, that means only about a dozen of our - out of 200 - can come, because we don't have kids to leave behind. :/

Yay for giveaway shoutout!! :) I really hope we get enough people.
