Yes...I'm THAT mom...

I have spent the better part of last night and this morning ordering...wait for it...feathers...YES FEATHERS!  Why you ask?  It's not for a costume, or a project, it's for hair...yes HAIR!  My daughter has jumped on the feather hair extension band waggon and a sweet friend of mine told me you could order them and install them yourself saving TONS of money.  I've researched this fact and it's very true...of could also say NO to the feathers and save EVEN MORE!  What's worse...I found myself ordering a few extra.  For friends you ask?  Oh no...embarrassingly enough...for me!  Shhh...please don't tell...and please don't point and laugh...just hide your snickering smile behind your hand and move on like any other self-respecting person would do!

Wandering Words Wednesday...

The other night I dreamt I worked in a prison.  I was at a table with all these security guards and we were signing in and then they handed me a check (my paycheck I assume) but it was written on a personal size check, no envelope just a check.  (I don't work at a prison, I work at a school a very pleasant school.  There are no fences or clear backpacks the kids don't even have to wear uniforms nothing like a prison at all.)  I woke up before I could see how much the check was for, hopefully more than I make now!  I wish I had a book of dreams so I would know what it meant.  Any thoughts?

What Happens...

What happens when you realize you're not as strong as you're actually pretty weak?
What happens when you realize you're not the happy person you portray that you're actually sometimes faking it just to get through the day?
What happens when you realize the bravado you carry around is a mask to cover up the fear?
What happens when you realize that the weight that you have carried for so many years starts to weigh you down?  The weight that felt not light at all but at least manageable, all of a sudden becomes a mansion made of boulders.  A weight that you're no longer walking with and instead are crawling and some days not even that...some days you're just laying there with it on your back waiting, praying for the burden to lighten so that you can get up and move.
What happens when you feel like your letting someone down because of your own insecurities and fears?
What happens...?
