Today - Another Exciting Day at the Homestead

I'm doing my almighty best to stick close to home with the Tinkerpot until RSV season has mostly done its worst. It's hard because I'm not a stay-at-home kind of girl. I mean, it sounds good for a few days but I get the itch to get out - anywhere: pharmacy....pet store..... ...... to get some marbled meats. Whatever.

So here I am ... in my house ... wondering what I can do to keep myself amused. Looking around it seems there would be endless opportunities for entertainment but cleaning the litter box and polishing my silverware is just the sort of thing I need to avoid in order to ensure I don't exceed my capacity for self-imposed jolly.

So I had a little affair with my new double-barreled curling iron today. Did I mention there's a science to its utilization too? You can't just whip it up into your hair and expect perfection. Especially with my hair. My hair can have a mind of its own. So here's the after pic from today's venture.
Not bad I think. Of course it's too bad that I look so fabulous today considering I have nowhere to go. That figures.

Later I found that I needed to drive my Jeep over to the dealership to find out why there's a puddle amassing under it whenever it's parked. They told me it's transmission fluid. Whew - thank goodness it's not SOMETHING TERRIBLY EXPENSIVE. So not only did I not go anywhere but the dealership today, I'll be housebound again tomorrow since the Jeep will be in the shop. Super Sweet. Tomorrow I'll be wracking my brain again to invent new and interesting ways to waste 12 hours. Any ideas?

Ooh Ooh Ooh - guess what? Guess who's back? Yea - my ankles! Wanna before & after to refresh your memory?

MARBLED MEATS!!!

Aislinn said...

I love the picture of you (ok, I know it's supposed to be about your hair - but YOU look great!) Happy that you got your ankles back as well!

Christy said...

I think we got more back than your ankles. You look amazing! Love the hair. Love the Amy smile. Love the you.

Tiffany said...

Amen to all that. You look AMAZING, and nice job with the curling iron. I never could quite get the hang of mine...it requires coordination, which I have none :) Glad to see the cankles leave. Those are no fun.

How cute are you!?

Heidi Sue said...

You look so beautiful, and I love that your feet are back to looking great also.

Amy said...

thank you all!

Oh I knew I needed to talk to you! I'm feeling like the "prisoner of my Stucco Cell". However, I went to work at the school yesterday for just a couple of hours (just helping test some ESL in Spanish) and I was so sad to leave cute Charley with a babysitter. I spent the rest of the day just loving and cuddling with her. I thought about you all afternoon. It was one of those days I kept thinking.. Amy knows exactly what I'm feeling and thinking. The constant battle of being home and having a LIFE! Never settled in where we are...You look fabulous!
