I don’t know if anyone remembers, but a while back I mentioned having a particularly vivid dream—the closest I’ve ever had, I think, to having my subconscious construct a plausible story in chronological order. ^^

 

I was extremely excited about it, but unsure if it would actually make a good story once written out. So I’ve let it sort itself out for a while, and now, quite out of the blue, I’ve had ideas coming thick and fast. I do believe it wants to be full-blown novel. O_O Though far from writing itself, inspiration has been pretty easy to come by, and I’m having a ton of fun with it.

In other news: I’ve started recording my mom’s book for her to put in her “booth” at an online homeschool conference. I thought I’d hate doing it (the sound of my voice on most recordings = much cringing), but I’ve actually really liked doing it, and Mom seems happy with it. And now I have to create a banner for it before the deadline too… 

 

The ongoing remodel (of super chaos- and disorder-causing powers): Just the hall (leading from our bedroom to the bathroom and the rest of the house) left to tile. Dust continues to fly, and Cami and I continue to be trapped either in or out of our room these days. But we do have a bathroom again, and it is lovely, which has been a cause for much celebration. Still, I can’t wait until the mess moves upstairs to the next bathroom, and we can move back down-stairs… =P

Wee! I cut my hair! Huzzah!

You girls were absolutely right: I don't regret it at all! I feel a couple pounds lighter (this might help with the neck pain I've had, me thinks...), and this is going to give me a nice fresh start on maintaining healthier long hair. To top it all off, it's a wonderful feeling to know that, in any case, it's going to be doing someone some good.

More than regretting it, or anything, it just feels STRANGE. I'm so used to keeping track of where my hair is at--i.e. not being stepped on when I sit on the floor, or getting slammed in the car door--it feels like I've lost a limb or something. I just braided it, and when I came to the end of my hair it was unnatural to just stop there. It felt like it should keep going... Rather freeing, actually. ^^ Washing it is going to be so much easier now, too.

Yes, I'm quite euphoric about it. Thanks again for the emotion support you all provided, there, in my dilemma. ;-)

And...*drum roll*...Cami did it too! It was wonderful to do it together, like we do pretty much everything. *huggles her* She didn't have any time to accustom herself to the idea (she decided on the spot after I had it done), so I know she's having a bit more trouble than me coming to terms with it. But now we get to grow it back out together, and maybe donate again. *grin*

To top it all off, it looks like our bathroom might be finished as soon as tomorrow! *in Kusco-voice*: I'm so happy...

*is definitely on her "groove"*

*boing*

I can't believe I'm actually saying this, but... I'm getting my hair cut! *dies*

I've been considering donating 10" to "Locks of Love" for a long time, but only just recently really set myself to do it for certain. Now, of course, that I've said I AM going to do it, I'm getting truly apprehensive... Guh. I still really think I should do it for more than one reason. I have over 20" of hair, so it's not as if I'm gonna have to get a pixi cut--but I'm just so used to having past-waist length hair! The thought of getting it cut is just plain traumatic. =S


Well...for now I shall distract myself from all that with writing, and Latin, and whatever else I can come up with... I think this is something I could easily procrastinate about my entire life. Heh. ^^

Oh, and on a quick not-so-distraught topic: Cami and I will soon have a brand new bathroom! Woo hoo! Of course, for the present we are mid-remodel, and are without our toilet, or shower, but the boys (Eric and our brother-in-law, who's a finish carpenter) are grouting the floor tiles today, and I'm extremely excited to see how it looks when they're done. Cami and I picked out a beautiful mosaic for the center. It kinda looks like elvish heraldry to me. *g* It has these lovely blue-ish stones in it, which should match the blue paint colors we picked out for the walls. No more grungy, ucky basement bathroom with peeling wallpaper and truly awful brown tiles--wee! =D Now to survive the noise and clouds of dust (that coats everything)... It's so fun to see things come together. =)
