Understanding Laura

I am a crunchy oddball with too many ideas and too little time. Do you get me now?

Midnight Hair Cut

When I can't sleep, I do extraordinary things. Things my mind would not normally conceive. Things that make me seem like a looney-bin escapee. Tonight, I cut my own hair.

Pardon the look. I'm exhausted and freshly showered. Though, this is what I look like most days...



This might be routine for some of you. But I assure you, this is not routine for me. It was very much a moment of restlessness. I just get all this energy pent up and I need to do something with it. Paint and redecorate a bathroom, make a diaper (or three), organize my basement storage, cut my hair.

It's all cut evenly. I check every time I walk past a mirror. I'm so particular about my hair, I've been nervous to go to a stylist in Alaska. The requirements for a beautician's license are so relaxed, I am technically more qualified to cut my own hair than Sally Sue down at Great Clips. Thank you 500 hours of beauty school.

Brian's home! A crazy mishap at the airport, a lunch with Terra while I killed time, and two poop-out-the-diaper changes later - he's home! It's good to have him back. But I think it's thrown off Kellie's sleep schedule. She keeps trying to play with him instead of closing her eyes. He's not playing back because - he's sleeping! Wish me luck on getting my fussy kidlet down and finally sleeping tonight.

    yay! glad your man's back. i can't imagine doing what you do... i mean the being on your own thing, not the haircut thing... although, i wouldn't do that either. :P ha ha!

    good luck! Yipee, Brian home! So fun that Kellie wants to play with him. Not so fun getting her down:{ Your hair looks great! How long was it before? How do you make a diaper?

    I love you. I wish you could come bring some of that energy into my disaster of a computer room one night! :)
