Good Evening Friends... Sorry it has taken me a few days to return and make a post , it has been quite the entertaining week already ! Monday was wasted... as most should be! I spent it in bed with my head under the covers waiting for it to pass ! lol I wasted a LOT of time on Pinterest...I was trying to find Valentines Inspiration for the Princess for her class at school and hairstyles for myself ! As, I mentioned before I'm not a trendy , styling kinda gal , so though I love and appreciate many things ...picking things like clothes or hairdo's out for myself is NEVER an easy task ! However ...a few weeks ago...after much nagging by Princess and her "daddy", I made an appointment with my friend and stylist Nicole to get myself a haircut !( a late Christmas gift from the before mentioned ear benders) For most it's not a big deal ...for me it's a HUGE DEAL , as I haven't had even a trim in over 15 months !!!
These are my before pics ...look how long my hair has grown ...sheesh ! Because of all the meds I take, procedures I've had done and my diseases my hair was getting so thin and falling out everywhere !!! I could wash laundry and find it wrapped up in all the clean laundry , or wake in the morning sweaty with it wrapped around my neck choking me ! So, after hours on Pinterest I had lots of ideas ...which were all over the place and no definite clue as to what to do ! :(
Tuesday Morning I woke up , doubled up my pain meds so I could make the trip to the salon , and be able to sit for a short while to get my hair done !I arrived at the salon and sat in the chair, looked at my AMAZING stylist and after many questions , all I could figure out was that I DESPERATELY needed a CHANGE and because of lack of funds and the ability to visit frequently I needed low to no maintenance ... finally I said " I have NO CLUE , what to do , I TRUST YOU , SURPRISE ME !" Well and hour and half later , I left the salon feeling like I had lost 20 pounds , and was feeling SASSY and my new mahogany color with plum highlights gave my "sparkle " new life ! The Princess kept telling me all night ..."you don't even look like my Mommy anymore ", "you look like a HIPSTER !" ...I don't know what that really means but I'm going to take it as 9 year old FLATTERY!
That brings us to this morning ...GOOD OL' HUMP DAY ! Today was beautiful , high 50's and SUNSHINE ! This morning I got the pleasure of a 9 am psych evaluation , ordered by the Department of Disability ...apparently just a stepping stone in road to approval or denial! Anyone that has followed me for quite awhile, met me in person or knows me ...ALREADY KNEW I WAS CRAZY ! It was an interesting appointment to say the least and though I FAILED MISERABLY at counting backwards from 100 by 7's , he did say that at this time he was uncertain if I required meds or additional treatment as he felt some of my trouble is caused not by "problems" but by pain and my health issues ...and that I do have PTSD, OCD, ADHD, and am mildy depressed and have mild anxiety disorder issues ...and something else that I can't remember , that I couldn't pronounce if I tried ...basically certain sounds IRRITATE ME ! Not too shabby , or at least what I think he said didn't seem too bad....I mean not many could live through and with all that I do and have and remain perfectly sane...however it really doesn't matter to me at this point , but I am highly amused by the fact that my level of CRAZY is now CERTIFIABLE and on paper ! lol Just in case you needed to know ! lol

MADE THESE CHEERIO TREATS FOR SNACKS THIS WEEK
This evening while Princess was out on her weekly date night with Granny and Papaw , I took a few minutes and drug out a few tag sale treasures I got over the summer . Great vintage "creepy " vinyl dolls ...I paid $0.15 each for them !!!They needed a bath , and are on the counter drying , so that when I have a decent day I can create something new with them ! I can't wait !!! The smaller of the two is quite strange and really calls to me, however I'm uncertain as to whether I will keep her whole as is or "part her out" and play with a lil mixed media! She has a tiny head , pink hair, a normal body and muscular man looking arms , and is NEKKED!!! The larger head came on nicely jointed body with a missing leg , so I "decapitated " her ...she seems to have been a doll of better quality her hair is sewn on not glued, her eyes are bright and gorgeous , she's very detailed ... I have SWEET plans for her ! What would you do if you had dollies like these?
Well I hope my mismatched , scatter brained post , hasn't bored or confused anyone to death! Wishing each of you a wonderful evening ...and until we meet again ...Ill always be ...just a lil raggedy ! hugs
