It's been a busy and exhausting year for me for sure. I've thought back on what 2015 has held for me so far. The loss of a baby, two new jobs, my 40th birthday, a car accident. There's about 6 weeks left to this tumultuous year, and while I'm anxious for the idea of a fresh start, sometimes I feel like time is going by so quickly and I want it to slow down!
Last Friday, I had to take a day off work and take Bucket to a testing center. He's been having seizures, peeps. One at church, two at school. I took him to a neurologist (didn't like him) and an EEG and MRI were both ordered. The EEG went off without a hitch. Poor Bucket had a panic attack inside the MRI machine and halfway though, we had to stop. Now I have to reschedule that, but this time he can get sedated. Kind of annoyed that this wasn't offered the first time, but I know how insurance companies are. They won't pay for sedation unless you freak out inside a metal tube, first. Good times.
|Bucket is 17 now. You see those huge shoes? 13. You see that face? Beard. You see my purple sweater? Freezing.|
Bucket is not the only one who changed his hair color recently. His mama needed a change, too.
|First off, can you believe I got a pixie 18 months ago?!?! Look at it!|
|The day before my 40th birthday, I decided to add blonde streaks. I enjoyed it, but I missed my dark hair. So I decided to make a radical change.|
|And yes. I love it. Ignore my incredibly puffy eyes...seriously, do they always look like that? Sheesh!!!|
One of my relatives on Facebook actually tried to shame me for having purple hair. Said, "you're not 18 anymore." Well, no kidding. I didn't realize I had to hang up fun the day I left high school. And as my friend Jenn said, I put the FUN in FUNDAMENTAL CHRISTIAN. She has pink hair and is pregnant with her 8th baby. I laughed for a good solid ten minutes over that one. So because I'm 40 and Christian, am I doomed to a life of unkempt hair, denim jumpers and Birkenstocks? *shudder*
|Saturday was my mom's birthday, but she had to work so this is Sunday. We went to Panera. I had broccoli cheese soup. See, the hair doesn't look so purple here. Say happy birthday to my mom!!!|
|My sister, me and my mom. And doesn't my sister look fantastic? She's lost almost 80 pounds!|
That's all I have for now. Except that my eyebrows look great. That's important, you know?
Have a wonderful, blessed Thanksgiving, and don't eat too much!
