Random 4A thoughts

hello everyone. i missed you ladies. thanks for all the bday wishes. this was a good 4th. oh the caribe fest was on point. the only downside was that my homegirl and i went out one night instead of going to a soca concert (why did we do that) and had a not so good of a time; which sucked because we had to pay $20 to get in. but on a positive note: it was good to be home!!!!!

I didn't know it was humanly possible to eat as much as I have this weekend. Even my big tent "eating" dress was stretched to its limits.
rt1: i have zero desire to do anything productive today.

rt2: i pre-ordered 20 boxes of 2008 crop jamila henna. i guess that's productive
natural since 1998. trying to adapt to this midwest weather while still keeping it simple. current length: MBL (stretched)

Geez, I haven't posted here in ages. I missed reading you guys!

RT1: Is it just me, or has it been a craptacular year so far? I hate to sound negative, but for myself and most of my friends/family, it's been one thing after another...and the fact that our economy is in the toilet isn't helping.

RT2: I think I'm going to start seeing a therapist (psychiatrist, actually) to work through some issues. I think I may be suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder from the serious car accident I was in back in February.

RT3: (related to #2) I miss my car!! It was a 2007 Honda Accord. I only had it for 7 months before it got totalled in the accident. Bummer. I want another car, but the price of gas and my fear of getting in another accident have kept me off the road.

RT4: My hair has been doing great lately. Almost 8 months into being 100% natural, and I've hammered down a routine that gives me pretty nice results (in my opinion): cowash with Elucence, rinse, add some as a leave-in (mixed with Giovanni Direct), and add jojoba jelly or KCCC. If I'm using the jojoba jelly, I usually follow up with a few spritzes of Devacurl Set It Free. My curls are poppin' and my hair is finally starting to show some length. Yaaaaaay! I just started henna-ing again too - after a looong hiatus. Might go for my 2nd overnight treatment this weekend. I love my red (formerly gray) hairs!

RT5: Men - I live in ATL (transplant from Ohio), and I found a man down here. Been with my boo for almost 6 years. He's from Illinois. However, I agree that most men down here are shady...the male/female ratio is so lopsided that most men are content to "play the field". And yes, there are a lot of *ahem* "MSM's" down this way.

RT6: I've seen more movies in the last month than I've seen in the last year. And I'm still waiting to see "Dark Knight" and a few others...I need to open up a savings account just to pay for tickets these days, LOL. I also need to get a bigger "movie purse" to sneak stuff into the theater!
4A - dense, medium strands - APL/BSL - 3+ years natural!

YAY!: GF Triple Nutrition Conditioner, YTCu Color Care Conditioner, Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque, LOTD AV Gel, EVCO, JCN&S, KCCC, buns and updos!

so after buying up all these products and doing all these experiments, what have I learned?
my hair loves dominican products and smooth and shine best, and I should have just stuck with those.
I can go for days without washing and not have an issue
keeping the ends stretched is my friend, heat is not
I want to toss all this other crap I bought, but I'm cheap.
*sigh*
Who gets a pimple in their navel??? What the heck is going on here?

I saved myself 800 bucks of labor cost by finishing my landscaping project myself. Who hoo!

I can't wait for Zumba class tomorrow night. I hope my hamstring feels better in time.

I am in desperate need of a trim but I don't know exactly how to go about doing it. I haven't trimmed my ends since my BC a year ago and now they are giving me trouble. I guess that means I took pretty good care of my hair??

I have officially started back working out!! Praise God, He gave me my motivation back after many many months of being off the bandwagon. I'm doing Turbo Jam and I absolutely love it..Chalene is da shiz! The last time I did it b4 ultimately falling off the bandwagon I lost 4 pounds in 7 days ...I wonder if I can beat my record? And I didn't starve myself either...Turbo Jam just kicks your butt like that.

So that guy I talked about several days ago has shown his colors...HeatherNicole you were so right..THAT DAMN PS3...as my girls and I like to say...I'M OFF IT! lmao
4a/4b hair...experimenting with products...
I love Ojon Restorative Treatment and all things Oyin

rt: so you realize that is your own bad energy that caused that to happen right? while you're getting frustrated and maneuvering and mad at someone else, take a moment to think about how you treated others.

Side note: tattoos, anyone? I'm going to get one soon and I'm SUPER excited about it!
I'm "TechKnockout" now.

It has a lot of color, and to my surprise, the color has held up well over the years. I've had it for about 15 years now. Dang, I'm old...
