I ship international pretty regually. If I can help, let me know. International shipping to the Uk costs about $17 for 2lbs and under $21 for 3 lbs and under. Over 4lbs, you can no ship First Class and have to use Priority and that's about $33
Thanks. I might take you up on that if I can work out whether its worth it cost wise. Any idea how many bottles I could probably get for 3 Ibs?

Sigh. The things I do for my hair....
I tried it figure it out, but then I realized I didn't know which products you were using. Is it just the conditioner?

I was hoping to get a bottle of Daily Fix and one of the conditioners. They are 16oz aren't they?

She has never had an abusive boss or gotten fired.

She has never had to struggle with meeting guys or online dating. One just happened to come along and she married young and has two amazing kids and a beautiful house.

I can't help it. I am so jealous and keep comparing myself to her and feel like everybody looks at me like I am the Black Sheep.
I didn't think she married young. I thought you said before she was freaking out about being close to 30 and not married - or maybe not?

Anyway, first of all, you don't know all the struggles and insecurities she may have that you don't see, and second, she is her and you are you and you have talents and abilities she doesn't, so enjoy being YOU! I hope you feel better soon.
She was 27. In our region, that's pretty young. She always said if she wasn't married by 30, she would marry some random guy off the street.
Oh, that's what I remember (the not being married by 30 comment.) I don't look at 27 as young to get married at all, but I guess it does depend on the area. And if that was her attitude (marry a guy off the street at 30!) I personally don't see much to envy in her.

If 27 is young for your area, then you have lots of time!

That is so funny tho!

claudine - I love bats too. I love to sit by the boyfriend's pond, a lake, or my own front porch at night and have them swoop by. A couple times a year I find a little bat sleeping on the brick wall of my porch. He stays for the day and then flies off.
When I was younger I was scared of them only because my grandfather once said "I hope a bat never gets too close to that hair. He'll never get out." I still think of that when one gets very close. And I've had a rat stuck in my hair so it could happen! : )

^ I like bats as well, unless they fly toward me. A few circle my house. I will sometimes forget and send a text, while sitting outside. They fly straight toward me, every time.

I woke up to the best text message from my nephew. He was getting ready to board a plane to the Caribbean for school. He told me how much he loved me, that I was his favorite Aunt, and wished me HBD. It made me smile.

Then I saw a missed call from my dad at 4:30 am. I would have been worried, if that wasn't a common occurrence. The man has no sense of time since he retired.

At least it wasn't a bare boob.^
----------------------
I have bats, too. I wish more of them would flock near my house, to eat up all the horrid mosquitos.

I did build and hang a bat box for a long time, but they never went near it. They've come inside a few times; once on my birthday. It was funny: swoop, swoop, swoop; window. The dogs were completely flummoxed.

a follow-up to my $100 winning ticket.

when i cashed it in, the lady at the lottery booth said i should get another one.

that one netted me $10. so i picked up another one and got $5 on that!



now $3 - the cost of the ticket - is the least amount you can get; i fully expect my next one to be for that amount and then nothing!

Slowly resigning myself to a whole year of bad hair.

b-wavy, nothing exciting to the rat story. He was my nephew's gorgeous brown and white pet rat. He liked to crawl up on people's heads but decided he wanted to get under my hair. And he got stuck. It took my nephew and a friend awhile to detangle him and get him out. He was fine and I lost no hair so all was well.

Sexyboy has noticed I've lost weight

I really need to get my hair trimmed and highlighted.

Never saw "gorgeous" and "rat" in the same sentence before...

I just saw an NYC/MTA bus on the PA turnpike. Not strange at all.

I do not like bats. They totally freak me out. I've had some unpleasant close encounters.

I wanted a pet rat SO bad, but boyfriend was totally against it. I tried for a while but he wouldn't give in so I got piggy.
