#MicroblogMonday – This and that #3

I played adult today and finally opened/started a retirement fund-thing for myself. How am I not 18 or 21 anymore? And why does it still feel like I am playing house at times?

It has been 4 months since I first got my hair bleached and dyed. My “roots” were showing pretty bad, but I finally bleached them last night. I was so nervous to bleach my own hair, but it wasn’t so bad. I did a pretty good job, if I do say so myself. After that, I dyed all of my hair green again. I mixed the Marge Blue and Daisy Yellow of Herman’s Amazing hair color that I had from a previous dye job. Except I used a more yellow and got a more spring green color. I love it!

There are more hair photos at the bottom. I was having fun this morning.

Tadbit might be the sporty one in the family. She loves her brother’s hockey stick and ball. She’s even pretty good at hitting the ball with the stick. But what she really likes is this mini golf club and golf ball that we got in a Kinder Surprise egg. She saw me once show Paxlet how to use it and she has been “practicing” with it ever since. The ball is also a prized item to walk around with, when we let her. (The ball is very small and more likely to be easily swallowed than choked on, but we’d still like to keep it on the outside.)

Yesterday I gave Paxlet his very own craft box. I took crafty items from my many craft boxes, put them in a box just for him and told him to go at it. He loved it! There is stickers, tape, a glue stick, tissue paper, colored paper, cardboard bits, wooden craft shapes, straws, string, fuzz balls, and so on. Scissors are kept separately, which he can have when he asks for them.

  1. Welcome to adulthood! You’ve officially beaten me out with getting on top of this (on to do list, and needs to be addressed ASAP!).

    I like this Spring green on you. You look like a lovely fairy.

    And now I’m curious about Paxlet’s thoughts about his craftbox. Will be interesting to see how it evolves over time. A very clever and cool idea.

  2. well done! i always feel like i am still playing house, and i perpetually feel like i am still in my 20s. your craft box is cool. i did some craft and painting with the boys for the first time just the other day, and they loved it. i am usually too wary of them making a mess, but it wasn’t too bad 😛

  3. The green is gorgeous. So vibrant.

    I am barely an adult. I started a retirement account, but haven’t contributed to it in years. I worry about this a lot.
