    When my sisters and I get together we have "Virgin Bloody Mary's" when we go out to eat together....as no one wants to be the designated driver!;)

    And boy they really are making them fancy now!

    IMG_4110.JPG I have no problem coloring my hair red, this is the color I used Light Golden Brown, I have so much red pigment in my hair that unless I use one of the ash browns I always end up with red hair. :)

    I've tried to color my own hair a few times but because it's long and I can't see the back of my head to do just roots after a few times it's a disaster.

    I get highlights done now mostly when I go to my daughter's house, her stylist is good with blonde and not outrageous in price. With highlights you don't have to do it as often.

    The last time I colored my hair I did go to the one who cuts my hair and has been my stylist for years. It cost me $130. with the tip. I don't think coloring my hair is worth spending that much of our hard earned money on. And I would ask my daughters to help me...but they are all so busy working and raising their own kids now, etc. But the box of hair color costs just a few dolllars and if I leave my glasses on when I do my roots then the rest of my hair is not hard to saturate for 10 minutes with the color. I just do it like I'm washing my hair and make sure the color gets all through my hair. It was not hard at all this time and it came out well too. My hair needs a trim as it is pretty long right now and I was afraid one box wasn't going to be enough but it worked out just fine.

    I paid about $145 last time for cut, roots and highlights but I don't go that often...every few months or when something special is happening.

    My hair is many shades of blonde, plus I need 2 boxes. My sister does her blonde by herself and it's really nice but her hair is short.

    What I really wish I could do today is just pack my bags and get in my little dream car God blessed with and hit the road to Florida and the beach!

    I havent seen him in at least 6-7 years, and the reason we split was alcohol. :(

    He's in Ohio now...that's where he's from and spent his whole life there, just moved to Fresno to be with me 8 yrs ago. His family is all in Ohio too.

    Something to think about for sure....I could use his help so much but I just don't know if it's worth the stress.

    But oh how I love my alcoholic @Chrissy Page and he may not be perfect but I'm not either. He's my Honey and I'm keeping him as long as God gifts me with him. But I think you have posted before that your ex drinks and you weren't happy about that... all I can say is you are a grown woman and you know what you can put up with and what you can't ...and that's what you should base your decisions on.

    I think you are feeling that lonliness right now too and all the things you have to do seems overwhelming to you. But it might be better to hire a handyman to fix things instead of getting yourself in a "fix" with a man you know isn't right for you.

    I think you're probably right, Babs. The difference between you and I is that you love your honey, I don't think I loved John enough.

    I don't know if he still drinks either, also it doesn't have to be a romantic visit ...just friends...darn, wish I didn't answer that text.

    I do love my Honey and I know God gave him to me alcoholism and all. I'm not going to throw him away because he's not perfect. He's have to throw me away too because I'm so far from perfect it stinks! :eek:

    We are perfect for each other because we see each other as God made us to be...not as we are in our humanness...we see each other's hearts if we wouldn't have been wounded by others.

    Your a "big girl" Chrissy, and if all you want is your ex to come and fix things around your home then maybe it won't be a problem...but if you're hoping he has changed and will be what you want him to be now, then you might get hurt all over again if you let him back into your life because you have to want him like he is, not how you want him to be.

    If you don't want to read the book, it's also a Disney movie.
