Growing up I had flaming red hair. I hated it. Then of course when I started to go grey, I started coloring it. I wanted dark hair. Sure. Big Joke. I always ended up with red hair. So after a couple of years I just quit and let it go grey. Now it is white and I am loving it.

I used to dye my hair red because I hated having dark brown boring hair. Isn't it funny how we are never happy with what we have?

My friend and hairdresser gives me streaks once in awhile and we are just letting them blend in the gray gracefully. At least that is my story and I am sticking to it!

I've never died my hair. I just say that I have grey highlights now.

I was blonde as a kid and it started getting darker. As soon as I was old enough to babysit, my Mom let me bleach my hair back to it's original color. I did this for so many years that about 10 years ago, I got curious about what my actual color was... yup still mouse brown. Then it went gray after chemo. I've been playing with the color off and on since, red and blonde mostly.

Is there a connection between dying your hair and babysitting?

Aww, I was hoping for some more exciting answer!

I am trying to get some energy to get up and give the dogs their evening treats. I am an hour and a half late, but usually they hound me for them so they must be off sleeping.

My theory is you have to be undercover to babysit other peoples kids, just incase you harm them Accidently or on purpose!

I just dropped off my 13-year-old dog at the Vet's to have him remove a growth from her foot. I'm to pick her up later today unless the Vet finds some reason to not do the procedure and has me come get her. I'm not very happy about it, for a wide range of reasons. Just hope I'm doing the right thing.
