Haircuts & Ladybugs

Amidst all the hectic-ness of getting ready for school, I have made time to beautify myself this week. I am getting my fuzzy caterpillars that live above my eyes waxed tomorrow and tonight...I’m getting my hair did. I mean, I feel that getting a haircut and brow wax are almost as important to my lecture success as the content. I won’t feel confident with eyebrows so curly and long that they need to be trimmed (it’s true...Whitney knows what I’m talking about). So, I am headed across town after work and then I have to go to Wal-Mart because if I remember correctly from last year, I didn’t have enough socks to go the whole week. Socks are not a wear twice without washing sort of clothing item...pants are maybe...but not socks. After that, I have to go to my parents to print some stuff so I have another busy night planned.

Last night, I went to dinner with my Dad. We went to Moe’s (surprise, surprise...I am dreading the day I grow tired of that place) and then we went to the mall and he bought me some luggage for my graduation present. It’s really nice and it was a good deal. It came with five pieces! He’s been trying to buy me luggage for awhile and it wasn’t until I saw the shape of my mother’s poor duffle bag that I finally took him up on the offer. My Mom is an excellent packer. She could pack for 2 weeks in a carry on...I’m sure of it. I have put her huge duffle through some things. Anyway, I can’t wait to test my new luggage next week. It still has that new luggage smell! THANKS AGAIN DAD!!!

It looks kind of like this:



I’m pretty sure that there is no solution but I thought I would throw a problem out there anyway.



We have a lady bug infestation. OK-It’s not QUITE that bad. They always come in the warm, muggy weather. First of all, I hate bugs. I don’t care if they have cute decorations: red with black spots, lime green moths, or bright-colored butterflies...I hate them all. I fear cockroaches the most and I am pretty scared of spiders and things that hop but other bugs just get on my nerves. I especially don’t care for them being in my space. There aren’t just one or two lady bugs...there are hundreds. We end up with them on our clothes, crawling on our hands and legs and falling in our hair and face when we come in and out of the door. It’s so obnoxious. Does anyone know of any home remedies to get rid of them. I know people say to hang plastic bags of water to get rid of flies but I’ve never heard how to get rid of lady bugs. I just want to deter them from crowding around the house. I can’t stand going into my laundry room and crunching on them with bare feet. It’s gross. I’m sure it’s just one of those things in life that you just have to deal with but I thought I would ask.

I had a great lunch with my Mom today at Hooligans which is a little Greek type place here in town. It was so good but I spent more points than I usually do on lunch which means I was immediately manic about what I would have for dinner which has kept me pretty hungry this afternoon. I think I will survive!

  1. Yes! Down the the ladybugs! They are annoying, and gross, and after the incident the other night, I never want to see one AGAIN!!!

    Congrats on your luggage...and your hair looks fantastic!
