Who would think finding a pair of khaki pants would be so frigging difficult?

I take my small broom from the dustpan and sweep it out. Lol. My floor isn't recessed so I can just sweep it out the door. The vacuum never really gets it all up and I'm bad about washing the exterior so I'm rarely at a car wash.

I tried that with the broom. It doesn't work for me. We actually have a car wash that I go by daily. It works out.

How are you doing without your girls? Is school distracting you?
Very much, thank you. I am so GD busy that I have no time to think of much else.

Plus Bella just loves school. She's coming home and singing her songs and telling me what she learned that day. She loves it and she's adapting well so I'm happy.

i am working in a war zone... our receptionist and financial clerk are not speaking to each other and now the receptionist has put a GIANT plant on her desk to hide her from even looking at the FC.



each of them have radios set very low to different stations on their desks and R thinks FC has hers too loud and wants her to turn it down more. i have pretty good hearing and when i'm sitting in each chair, i cannot hear the other's radio.

*sigh*

R has been proving difficult to work with in many ways; she is often rude to FC and won't take any direction from me, even though she is supposed to and is also to be my backup. she is also trying to scam a free underground parking space here at the courthouse when there is a 6 year waiting list for one and she has been here less than a year.

it is painfully difficult to be here at work right now with all the managers away for a couple of days and the hostilities very open....

Dryer #4 was given a go today, not that great.

I'm so over hair dryers. The people that design these things most obviously do NOT use them.

Why can't I find a dryer with a finger diffuser that is somewhat lightweight and doesn't give me a headache due to it being like a jet engine in my ear? And don't even get me started on toggle switches on a handle, but if I found the other 3 criteria I'd deal with that.

springy, maybe you need the fancy kind from Ulta?

People used to love the "Yellow Bird" model when I was a kid. Have you tried that one yet?

My mom had a Revlon quiet something. It was good for curly hair bc it didn't blow too hard.

I hate shopping for hair dryers when you're used to working w the one you had.

I bought a semi-expensive one from BB&B, but expensive apparently doesn't mean better. I've looked online at Ulta and have been reading reviews until my eyes have crossed.

I'd like to find one that comes with a diffuser because those are usually made to fit that particular model and don't fall off and hit me in the head like the universal diffusers. I guess it sounds like I'm being super picky, but I use this thing every single day for about 15 minutes and I'd really love to find the right one. I had hoped to find one before Friday when our guests arrive so they didn't have to bring a dryer with them and my old one could be kept in the guest bath.

The search continues! Maybe I'll look at Sally Beauty tomorrow. Thanks for the suggestion.

I have a newer Yellow Bird. I really like it. The reason I didn't mention it before to spring is because it's pretty loud and it's not super light weight.

But then, I think all decent hair dryers are loud and have a little heft to them. It's just the nature of the beast.

You have to get the same brand -- is
it Conair? -- diffuser for the Yellow bird. It fits great.

YB also has toggle switches, so that's no good either!

One of the criteria for me for a hair dryer is that it not crap out on me within the first three uses like my last one. I only dry my hair very occasionally, so by the time it went kapoot it was too late to return.

The other criteria was variable hot-cool -and low-high settings.

Why the heck are they all so high pitched? The one I use now isn't loud like that at all so surely there have to be other models that aren't ear splitting. I've come across a couple that are labeled as quiet, but didn't come with a diffuser.

I know the logical question is why not just keep using the one I have now, but I've had it for a while and I'd love to go ahead and find a new one while it's still working before I have to find one if/when it finally kicks the bucket.

Family drama and this time it's B's family. The poor guy. He is one that wants to understand what is going on (I think it's the engineer in him) and he wants to 'fix' it. I told him to stay out of it-if they want to talk to him they will. Then he asks if he should talk to his sister's sons. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. Stay out of it. Please.

Families can be sooo draining.

Oh Ya, I hate that high pitched dryer noise.

And I don't know about you, but I always hit myself in the head with the dryer. Even if I'm just drying fast without a diffuser, I smack myself with the barrel.

But maybe that's just part of my character.

I broke down and got the T3 Featherweight dryer when it was on sale about two years ago or maybe more (I forgot which site) but I still paid over $100 for it. I also got the diffuser. It is not loud (to me) and it has multiple heat/fan choices. Just a thought. I bet I could search the hair board and find out which site it was that I got it at.

Springy,

I understand your pain with the extra high-pitch they put out now. I have a Conair Ion Shine 1875 that came with a fantastic diffuser (got them at Wally world in a set). But it's so freakin' loud!

Have you considered a soft bonnet attachment? The sound doesn't carry to the bonnet and it certainly diffuses. I use this: Conair Professional - Conair Pro Soft Bonnet Attachment It's cheap and easy to store (for moving purposes). I've been meaning to put laces on the bottom to tie it on because it does lift up but has never actually come off.

What is 'Gina' referring to.

it's a smart move, spring. Mine decided to die on me Monday morning. I turned it off for a few minutes to do my make up, then picked it up again to fix my bangs and: Bang! Zap! It died. Luckily, I was able to finish with my daughter's dryer. I bought a new "quiet" one at Target yesterday. So far, I'm not overly impressed. I will try it again today. My sock diffuser did stay on it, so that was a check in the positive column.
