Things have been kind of hectic here, also, because two of my closest friends just broke up last week from a five year relationship. They have been living together for most of that time as well and are both now looking for new housing. It's kind of confusing to be around them because they seem to be ok with being around each other but then will make comments that seem to suggest the contrary on other occasions. I was worried about both of them, one more than the other, but fortunately they both seem to be taking it as well as it can be, probably because they both have said that their relationship sort of petered out a long time ago and has been "over" for awhile now.

Hubby has applied for jobs all over town, at every car dealer and various janitorial agencies. He's also applied for unemployment.

If he lives at home, I could foresee our son not possibly needing services.
But otherwise, yes, TX is lightyears behind everyone else.

I hate it when my hair starts to feel too long (especially at the back - it gets to a point where I can't really do anything with it, if it's flat it looks too flat, if it's messy it's crazy!), but then when I've just had it cut it always sort of looks too short! By the time you've adjusted, it's grown again!
I bought some hair product stuff, though, as I've decided to put more effort into keeping my hair in good condition because I like to bleach it (to be able to put other colours over it, like green and blue and pink and...) and depending on how it's been cut and if I have the right kind of products for it to dry naturally quite straight I do sometimes have to blow dry and straighten the front a bit for me to feel happy with it (mostly a tactile thing as I don't like my hair feeling 'wrong') so I figure I should protect it and look after it a bit more if that's the case (I can't tell how much drying and straightening it will need until I've washed it after a cut and obviously as it grows it might need more drying and straightening, and if I need to get ready and rush out I have to dry it).
