By the time my son Philip went to bed, I declared temporary insanity. I desperately needed some "me time". This means I locked myself in the washroom, played Loreena Mckennitt, took a bath while dying my hair. I also gave myself a facial since my skin was all gross from being sick. Here I am at the sink, in my bra, coloring my hair black, when my son walks in to use the toilet. He sees me, stops, has a funny expression on his face then proceeds to ask "are you getting ready for Halloween? You look scary!"
Fast forward to today, Monday. I planned on wearing a dress (easy) because we all know I hate Mondays but my plans soon went to hell in a hand basket. As I was styling my hair, my husband noticed that there was a lot of hair dye still on my neck! I forgot to use a towel while I was putting hair dye the day before! Most of my clothes are in the wash and the clock is ticking. I opted for my turtle neck and my hippie skirt. Tonight, I am going to go looking for some scarves or something to wear for the rest of the week.
I also get to my son's school and realize it was a ped day. There is the babysitting service and most kids do not require a uniform on these days. Philip was pretty pissed off considering he showed up in uniform. I felt like such a bad parent.
I noticed later today too that I still had hair dye on my ears. I have decided, next time I declare temporary insanity and want to dye my hair, I am going to make an appointment at the hair dresser's! I am done! What a mess!
To make matters worse, my throat is starting to feel scratchy.
Let's hope the rest of the week goes better.
