Going Gray?

As you can tell from the picture, my roots are coming in.

I'm sick of dying my hair all the time. It's expensive. It's messy. It really can't be healthy. I've seriously considered this before. I've always chickened out.

For some reason, I can't stop thinking about it now. I think I might do it...

Weekend To-Do Follow Up

I'm a little disappointed that I didn't finish the list this weekend.  My husband was out-of-town, and I had some computer issues, so that sort of made me less productive.  I'm proud of what I did get done though, and I'm happy I got to spend a lot of time with my sons.

Here's what happened:

1. Create menu plan for the week. Done!2. Prep grocery shopping list and coupons.  Half done.  The list is made, the coupons are planned, but not clipped.
3. Do two loads of laundry (one each day).  Done!
4. Give the boys a bath - this is going to be tough. The boys want to be on the move all the time!  Done!
5. Feed the boys mangoes for the first time. I'm nervous about this one. I had a friend who was allergic to mangoes, and I really hope that our boys aren't.  Done!  And, without allergic reaction.
6. Keep up with my Daily Feats and Superpoints accounts. Trying to earn some free Amazon gift cards.  Done!  I didn't get any gift cards from these sites, but I did win one from Swagbucks.
7. Order diapers from Amazon. These should be free since I've earned a bunch of free credits.  Done & free!
8. Prepare for the Moms of Multiples resale. It's only a week away, and I need to get items ready. If you're in the Chicago area and have kids, you might want to check it out. Click here for more information.  Done!
9. Spend one hour working on a classroom website (I'm a teacher).  Not done.  School computer crashed.
10.  Pictures of maternity clothes for Ebay.  Not done.
