What I did yesterday...

snip, snip, clip, clip, oh what a trippy trip
So a few weeks ago I decided to cut my hair.  I got out the trash can, wet my hair and pulled out the clipper box.  To my dissapoint there were NO scissors in the box.  Reggie bought new clippers when he moved up to Utah and I didn't come with scissors :(.  Well I decided that it was probably a good idea:).  Until...

I bought some NEW scissors :)  Well it has been a long week and I needed to feel like a woman again.  So without even thinking about it, I went from the shower directly to my brand new scissors.  I think it was partly due to an emotional breakdown that didn't totally come.  Anywho  I just started cutting without even knowing what I was doing.  I shed a few tears during the process thinking; what on earth am I doing.  Then a few laughs.  Kids screaming outside my door and the sound of the snip snip.  I am excited to say that I love it.  Being in Utah and very far away from my amazing stylist I was pretty nervous to find someone for my hair.  It isn't perfect (I am not Marie :)) but I did it and I am glad it is no longer driving me crazy.  This is not the first time I have done this, nor will it probably be the last.  But I am not always this lucky.  I have done a pretty bad job before :)

10 YEARS!!

I you really wanted to see this. :)
Reggie and I just celebrated our Anniversary.  On May 3rd 2002 we became Eternal companions.  We have been married for 10 years!
I Love this man.  He is everything and more of what I need!  He is Amazing and so sweet.  When he first asked for my phone number I wouldn't give it to him, it took his friend begging before I gave it (I thought he liked my friend)  He called 2 weeks later and asked me on a date and I was busy.  So he asked for the next night and I had plans then too.  So I invited him over right then, and he came.  Good thing too because I'm not so sure he would have asked anymore after I was such a pain. Thank heavens for persistence. I guess I just had to make him work for it.  We were engaged another 2 weeks later on Valentines Day and married in May.  10 years later...four amazing kids and a dream life!

We are so glad to be together again.  Being apart was for the birds.  If we CAN be together then there is no reason to be apart.  I am SO glad we are all together again.  As of right now we dont know how long we will be here.  We are just waiting to here if there are more jobs and where they are.  We kind of hope we get to stay here for the next year before returning to Snowflake, but if we end up in Colorado or Wyoming then so be it.  Life lesson:  Life will NEVER not be crazy so LOVE it as much as you can while you can.(I am still working on this lesson) :)
We hope everyone back home and wherever else you might be that all is well.  We miss you all.
