Then the kids walked out the door.....and me...well, I FREAKED OUT! I went and bought the kit.....and as I washed my hair I just cried.....I was shaking.....and this is what I thought...seriously...."I have never wanted to drink.....never desired to be drunk....but if it would help me to forget what was happening...I would almost do it." Of course, I did not....maybe only because I had to spend 4 1/2 hours combing out my hair with a special 2 inch tiny comb....and I had no time to go get the "forget all my worries supplies." And people...do you know how thick my hair is??? This was miserable! I have to do a second application of it all on Monday just to ensure they did not come back (the thought literally just made me cringe). And....I am seriously considering cutting my hair before having to comb it out again! The only think keeping me from cutting it super short tomorrow is the fear that the hair stylist might say, "Oh, My Gosh, There is something in your hair!" So, I don't know what I am going to do just yet!
I even said (and I hate to admit this), "I cannot believe God let this happen to me." In the heat of the crisis that did not dawn on me how shallow my claim was....but now I can't believe I said that! Anyway, Ryan has not hugged me since Tuesday(I can't say I blame him)...and I am not sleeping in the newly cleaned bed with him.
I beg you ...PRAY HARD that they are gone forever! I also cannot believe I am sharing this on my blog. But....now that I have spent all this time writing, I'd hate to press the delete button....so, do me a favor....don't think I am gross....please and pray for me!

This is Cathy teaching me how to thread my machine.
That night, I made these...pockets, hahahaha. Except I tried to get fancy with the ribbon on one and I sewed the pocket up and so it became a "nocket"....meaning not a pocket.
Then, I made this amature apon! And gave it away as a gift!
Next, I took it up a notch and decided to make this simple little tote bag, which is definetly not perfect...but I was super excited.
And then, there was the checkbook cover. I made one crooked seam and decided to just make random seams around the whole thing....which I won't do again...
And then I Decided to paint these canvas' for our door.
My last craft for the week was a tin magnet board....or 3! My mom and I found this tin at Dirt Cheap in Mississippi and my Daddy drilled some holes for me....and then I turned them into magnet boards.

I know not every girl is a hopeless romantic....but I am to the point that I don't think it's a good thing. I get so mad sometimes....I mean why can't the things in the movies happen in my daily life. How come I have been married for almost 4 years.....and it seems that the wooing and sweet gestures stopped moments after our wedding day. I think this is why I wanted to always be an actress...because they get to have these happy stories over and over...haha. The truth is I KNOW that movies set us up to have unreal expectations...I know that the reason these movies are so good is that they are made up...and the happy people that fall in love...they are just pretending. But there is still a part me that longs for that. I mean who doesn't. So....there are few options that are going through my mind. 1... I can stop watching these romantic movies all together (not a fun idea). 2....I can watch and enjoy my moments of bliss but accept that when the movie ends so will the bliss. Or, number 3....I can just pursue my acting career!! I am going to think on these things!
In the mean time I am going next week to see 27 dress again...with another friend!!!
