Today, I'm guest posting for a friend of mine. She's hilarious, honest, a fellow homeschool Mama, and the object of my Hair Envy. (Seriously. Just take a look at her picture and tell me you don't also wish for long, flowing locks.)
Like me, you may have made some New Year's Resolutions about losing
weight, getting more organized, staying on a budget, and so forth. And
by now, also like me, you may have discovered that making resolutions is
much easier than keeping them. After all, there are sometimes "hidden
costs" in trying to cut back - whether it's calories, clutter, or cash.
learned this lesson the hard way a few years ago when we were really
under some financial strain. In an attempt to cut out a "luxury item"
from the budget, I decided to color my own hair. I had done it before
successfully, so this should have been an easy change to make. Taking
it a step further, I decided I would color my hair back to my original
color (to the best of my memory) so I could avoid coloring altogether
for a while.
