Do you ever read a word totally wrong to the point that your like, what does that even mean?? and it's a word like sharing? Obviously I have and with the word sharing. I read it with the emphasis on the ring part. Totally changes thing. shaRING! I'm smart.
OK anyway, today I thought it would be a good idea to mow the lawn in the backyard.
1. exercise
2. sunshine/spending time outside
3. help my dad out
First things first. I had to get dressed and put on my yard work shoes that have been sitting on the back porch. That's kind of where those shoes live which may be a bad idea if you are afraid of putting your foot in to a dark place where bugs could potentially live. But so far I haven't had a problem and it has only recently become a very bad idea since there is no longer a pest control company spraying the house. The front doorway/porch has been taken over by spiders--and not just any spiders, BIG SCARY spiders. It has gotten to the point where I am afraid to come in and out of the front door at night. How do I know spiders can't communicate, form an army, and sabotage me? It doesn't help that I had a dream where my sister was dangling a large grey spider over my face and laughing like I was crazy for being afraid. Here is picture of a web off to the side of the porch.
Anyway, this is just the front porch. I haven't even gotten to the back porch. I haven't spent very much time out there since the dogs have gone home so naturally my shoes and my mom's shoes have become excellent habitats for spiders. There were spiderwebs all over them, inside and out. I carefully began to deweb them and I used a pair of scizzors that happened to be sitting there to scrape out the insides. All of a sudden this huge black nasty spider came crawling out from the toe of the shoe and I started screaming.
Mowing the lawn was kind of like doing a buzz cut. I had to make sure I went over the lawn and cut it evenly and not leave long blades of grass. Afterwards, I needed to go around an trim the edges but I'm kind of afraid of that tool so I'll let my dad take care of it. All in all it was fun but next time I am going to wear gloves and a space suit.
1. gigantic bees
2. flies all over me
3. oh yeah I'm kinda allergic to grass

And for those of you that have grown your hair out, you know why I wrote that in all caps. For those of you that haven't, I'll fill you in on what it's like.
I stopped cutting it in November and I've done two baby trims. I think I've gained about 5 to 6 inches. But somehow it doesn't feel like enough and now it's hitting my shoulders at this horrible spot. It's the worst most unflattering length and my hair when it's down looks crappy no matter what. So I'm doing my best to barrel through it. I'm newly addicted to this front braid thing that I totally copied from one of my fellow salon chicks.

and my hair is in a bun or a ponytail as much as possible.

If I can just make it to November, I'll be home free. Until then, UGH!
