In case you've missed it, for the last few days I have whined (and whined) about my lack of sleep. Well last night I decided to do something about it. About an hour before bed, I stirred up a big margarita. After drinking that I slept great. And guess what? As I'm typing this post, I'm having another. I love good sleep.
A few minutes ago my niece tweeted something about melatonins and good sleep. Really? Melatonins? How does she know this stuff? She's too smart.
I read that tweet in the middle of my hair coloring. If you follow me on twitter (@mer_ish) then you may know that I do my own coloring. I'm just too cheap to pay someone to do it. I do know that professional hair people could do a fantastic job - but I do an okay job and that's good enough for me. That said, tonight I was a little worried. I use John Freida - the foamy stuff. And tonight that foam was looking really, really orange. I thought maybe Ronald McDonald would have to give me his job. But after drying, I think it will be fine. I'm not positive because I noticed that I have three lightbulbs out in the bathroom. How did I not notice this before? Tomorrow I'll probably be out in the sun during the afternoon, so we'll know then.
Today I helped my sister load a middle school newsletter to her TeacherspayTeachers site. She did it for a middle school graduate class that she is taking. And it is really good. I posted it on my educational blog, finishtheessay, too. I haven't written much there. I think I'll try to add a few things before school gets out. Anyway, the newsletter is really good. If you have middle schoolers, or teach middle schoolers, or will have middle schoolers, you should read it. And you can find the link here.
Last night's good sleep helped with today's projects. Better get to bed so that I can think straight tomorrow.
Do you color you hair or do you pay to have it done? Or are you luckiy enough to have your original color?
