I am a survivor of Adultery and mental abuse. I learned that you never really know someone until you are strong enough to stand up and walk away. I love and protect my children, with everything I have. My life might seem unbelievable, but I couldn't make this shit up if I tried! Stick around & let's get to know each other.

My Five Dollar Make-Over

Actually it was less than 5 bucks, the henna was four something, I don’t remember exactly. I have seen some Henna for much cheaper, but I am brand loyal to my Henna color. And I was ordering it online, and the last thing I wanted to do was try out a new brand and have it come out all wonky. I probably should have taken the time to actually look nice, but it was a now or never kind of moment. After you watch the vlog you can see how completely exhausted I am, but the addition is looking awesome and the homeschool room is coming along nicely, I might even finish it today! The organizing part of it anyways, I have yet to patch the cracks in the wall and paint the new (put on 5 years ago and never finished) trim. I also have to put at least one more coat of chalkboard paint on the backs of the doors. Anyways, completely off topic…now on to the vlog. Enjoy, and don’t laugh at the bags under my eyes!

    You did an EXCELLENT job on your hair.
    Last time I cut my own (in high school), I ended up with a crew cut on top, and a mullet in back.

      Haha Jean! I think I gave myself that same hair cut in highschoo! I have gotten much better at it over the years :)

    You did a fab job (I could never do my own hair but I am very good at cutting my kids’ hair). Besides which, you have a lot of natural beauty. Considering how “exhausted” you say you were, you look incredible.

    I was also impressed with the quality of the video and your “stage presence.” I’ve yet to put a video on my blog but may someday if I feel I can do a good job with it.

      Thanks Anne! I feel better knowing that after hardly any sleep I look better than I feel :)

      I was really nervous doing vlogs at first, but my kids and I did a lot of silly videos playing around and it helped me to get comfortable. You should try it out sometime, they are really fun to do!

    Love the hair!

      Thanks! I started growing it out a few months ago and then ended up chopping it off.

    WOW, I use to cut my own hair. I did it the day I was going to a awards ceremony in my honor when a friend told me that one side was at least four inches longer than the other.

      Oh no! I have had moments where I cut big chunks out of my hair, and then had to try to figure out how to fix it.

      Did anyone else notice or say anything? I always wonder if I am missing something and no one will tell me, lol.
