Hmmm…Mid-Life Choice??

So, before I pop my most recent big Practice face up, I have a little news. For the last 6 months or so when I have been out and about I have started to notice an occasional difference. The more I see it the more I like it my hubby is cool with it, so no problem. However, in my minds eye I see my Dad’s jaw hitting the floor upon seeing me the first time after my upgrade.

As I’m writing this I’m thinking of my Mom. She gets notified of new posts. So, after reading this will she bust out laughing and keep a secret…or will she attempt to subtly try to ease my Dad into the thought that I’m thinking of a radical hair color change? Thus perhaps softening the shock factor when his eyes actually see the new doo……hard to say…lol

And noooo I’m not talking a boob change or such. I am increasingly having the urge to dye my hair. I knowwwww this is all about hair dye?!

So, what’s the hold up ??….I can’t decide between pink, burgandy / red ish or a pastel shade of lavender. Yup, I’m feeling that I’m going to have a what the heck kinda day and pray I don’t hate it…lolimg_1973

All that being said, here is today’s model of whatever is floating in my mind soon to appear on my journal page.

To Radical??



Sooooo, not that it changes my decision in any way, I thought I’d share my husband’s reaction / comment(s) when I should him this post…..lol to be fair. As  I’ve / we’ve watched tv I would point out  anyone with the look I’d be considering. One other thing is just because we are in the same room…watching the same TV …(at times even on the same couch) should in no way imply that we are on the same planet!!

NOW COME ON BE HONEST!!  I knowwww I’m not the only person  ( with a wife, husband, partner, or a significant other, or any person that I’m honestly trying not to forget to mention.)developing black whole at one specific area that most family members are always alert when passing this area.

Before I forget despite all the life stuff that occurs everyday as people  are  enteracting with each other…you knowwwww…the way life is as we stumble around trying to live it.

Hubby says…”that’d be cool, but your hair is brown and I’m not sure you’d get the color you want”. Ya just gotta love that man..(slapping my forehead)….lol

I ❤️ love to hear your thoughts so Please feel free leave a comment, opinion, or feedback.



  1. That was a beautiful illustration. I love the use of pinks and reds in it. I wish I could doodle as well as you do.

    The last time I tried drawing some cute faces for my blog, I managed to get myself in serious trouble with some male bloggers who said the women were hideous and another one who basically tried to verbally abuse me because I responded to his rude comments politely. He then proceeded to publish the same kind of doodles on his blog and asked his readers not to laugh at him. They posted very polite and supportive comments about his work. It was surreal. I will never try that again.
