I Met Loreal Today

chr-2007-hair-color-with-flash.jpgWell, today I decided to get rid of the growing-out highlights, and go back to my natural color.  I just don’t have a lot of time to keep them fresh looking this season.

The first picture actually makes my hair look golden and shiny…isn’t that nice?  But, in reality, it actually looks darker, like my own hair color. 

 It’s actually more like this (no flash!).  I like to call it “healthy”.  That’s another name for uninspiring, but it’s important to stay positive in one’s self-assessment.


The Hub said, “I’ll have to get used to you without highlights again, but it does look really healthy and like your hair used to look.” 

I’ll take it! 

Anything non-wierd was my goal today! 

For some reason unknown to man, my hair color started growing out darker after each pregnancy.  My theory is, after having children with three different hair colors, it robbed all the color out of my own hair.  I am just so giving!

After I had my Red-Head, it just turned pretty much black, not as black as my Dad’s hair, but close.  I guess going white is considered the worse alternative, so I try not to complain. 

I love some highlights in the Spring, Summer, and Fall.  I tried cutting it to keep from having to deal with color this winter at all, but still, it needed something to look well-tended, so I met Loreal for the first time today! 

We got along pretty well with Mom out of town.  Don’t tell her that I betrayed her.  For $8.00, you just can’t beat it!  Not that I ever have had to worry about price with Mom for my “color artist”! 

Well, my “long-distance friends and family” letters are done printing.  Time to get back to Christmas cards and make food for a party today!  No caroling in the rain?  I hope so…I wanted the kids to go so badly!

Magnanimity (derived from the Latin roots magn- great, and anima, soul) is the virtue of being great of mind and heart. It encompasses, usually, a refusal to be petty, a willingness to face danger, and actions for noble purposes. Its antithesis is pusillanimity. Both terms were coined by Aristotle, who called magnanimity "the crowning virtue."

Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary of the American Language defines Magnanimity as such:

MAGNANIM'ITY, n. [L. magnanimitas; magnus, great, and animus, mind.] Greatness of mind; that elevation or dignity of soul, which encounters danger and trouble with tranquillity and firmness, which raises the possessor above revenge, and makes him delight in acts of benevolence, which makes him disdain injustice and meanness, and prompts him to sacrifice personal ease, interest and safety for the accomplishment of useful and noble objects.[1] (Source: Wikipedia)
