Why must we torture ourselves in the name of beauty...or what we perceive as beauty? I haven't had my nails filled for at least 3 1/2 weeks, so they were way overdue and beyond ugly. So I go to the nail salon today to pamper myself in hopes that it would get me out of my crummy mood I've been in lately. I did it all...got my nails filled, got an awesome pedicure, and decided I might as well get waxed too. Keep in mind that I am a hairy girl, so not only did I wax my eyebrows, I wax my lip and my jaw line too. A few weeks ago my brother in law was saying that he can't grow a beard. I came back with "well I can" LOL! Granted it isn't a burly man beard, but it's unwanted hair none the less. So I'm laying down in the little waxing room. My eyes are closed in an effort to relax. I'm talking to myself saying, it's okay...it will only hurt a little...and other lies like that. She begins to smooth on the hot wax, then apply the gauze strips, I hold my breath and she rips it off! My knuckles go white as I clinch them tightly. She continues this process all over my face. I was sure that she was not only removing the unsightly hair, but a layer of skin as well. My face was on fire. After she was done torturing me (that I paid her to do, mind you) She smeared some greasy stuff all over my face, in an attempt to put out the fire. Now not only is my face in pain, but it's red and covered in sticky goo. How's that for a day of pampering to get to out of a bad mood?!
***Disclaimer***I know my eyebrows are uneven. That's the Bells Palsy, not the waxing job.
Last night Brek came over to change the oil on his car. Him and Kyle were taking the bucket of used oil to Auto zone to dispose of it properly. They had it in Mark's work van. On a turn the bucket tips over. They pull over immediately and open the door. The bucket falls out spewing the rest of the oil. They quickly come home in an attempt to clean up the huge mess that they made, all the while leaking oil down the road. Since the trail leads right to my house, the authorities will know exactly where to find the culprits. They spent hours trying to clean things up. All of the carpet cleaning equipment had to be wiped down and the truck had to be scoured out. They put kitty litter on the oil spill that was on the side of the highway to soak it up. I felt so bad for them. I'll let you know if the police show up.
I went to bed before they were finished. I woke up to this little message on my computer from Brek. It says " love you mom! from your big boy" I love how he deliberately wrote some letters backwards and his exclamation point is dotted with a smiley face. Plusalso, he changed my screensaver to darth vader holding elmo. He's so funny!
Question??? I need a website that I can do a mosiac collage for my Christmas cards since Chad is gone and we can't do a group picture. I want something that will do 9 squares that I can print off in a 5"X5" square. Any advise? Wink flash does 5X5 prints, but now I need to be able to get the mosiac part done. Thanks in advance.
