Did it. Hair cut. There's an 8" ponytail lying in the passenger seat of my car to be shipped... somewhere? Somewhere where hair is needed? Anyone done this before?

Actually make that an 8" ponytail lying in the passenger seat of A's car, as my car spent the night in the car hospital because my "oxygen sensors" are making the ominous check-engine light come on. I was truly hoping the mechanic would say they are clogged up with chicken guts, as that would be easy to explain and not indicate a larger problem, but he says that is not the case. And yet even still, I hope for a chicken-gut diagnosis.

This is probably it for me, as I shut down my desk here and move toward a much-needed Girls' Night tonight and very interesting day tomorrow, promising weighted phone calls, long driving, "honest answers," and ending with a meeting that may open a door. Or a window. Or pick a lock. Whatever. It's all work-related, so we can't talk any more about it.

Then it's the classic Snee Family pack-like-the-house-is-on-fire extravaganza and, finally, up to Indiana with us. And still, we have shopping to do. Like shopping for a time machine so we can go back to October and do this Christmas thing proper. Probably no posts from the land of much snow. But probably good stories when I return.

Happy Holidays to all four of you lovely readers, and many blessings and other good things in 2008.

I hope that you're counting me in your four. I really enjoy your blog. I am making the Midwest trek come Saturday. I've only got the dog (no babies, no man this time, but no babies ever so far). I feel a tiny bit of your pain, but it's been so long since I've had this much time to spend with my family (an entire week) that I am kind of buzzing internally with excitement. Merry Christmas to you and yours and I look forward to your stories upon your return :)

Merry Christmas....donate hair to locks for love. My daughter and I have done it before, she has done it twice and she's only 12.

Locks of Love is great, great, great, but I think they're pretty strict about their minimum length of 10 inches per donated ponytail :( But if your hair is curly and you can pull it straight to get 10 inches, they'll take that.

Their website also says "Please Note: Shorter hair will be separated from the ponytails and sold to offset the manufacturing costs. Although the shorter hair cannot be used in the hairpieces, it still greatly helps to reduce costs," so maybe they can still take your ponytail?


I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and have a safe trip back South!
