crazy hair day

Today is crazy hair day at Emma's school. Either that or she is full of it and i am the most gullible parent in the world. Anyway, she wanted a mohawk, but her hair is too long, so i gave her a row of ponytails up the middle, to kind of simulate a mohawk. There was some hair left on the sides so i put a ponytail on each side which kind of turned out looking like handlebars on the sides of her head. I must say i was pretty proud of my handywork. I wish i was smart and knew how to post pics on my blog cause i took some pretty good ones of emmas hair. If i ever learn how i will come back to this. My kind friend Keely sent me a pretty detailed step by step email with instructions on how to do this but it it was lost on me. I consider my ability to even post on this blog to be a small miracle.
Here's a random question: why do i keep buying "light" soups expecting them to be good? Or even sort of good? My New Years resolution, since i havent made one yet, is to never be duped into spending $1.75 on a can of celery water again! I bought one today that had like 3 pieces of corn in it! Seriously! It was supposed to be "southwestern Vegetable". The picture looked delicious. I think thats what keeps suckering me back in, those dang mouth watering pictures. Well no more! Can you tell im a little bent? The story has a happy ending though- since the soup was clearly inedible it gave me a nice excuse to zip over to Subway for a somewhat more expensive but definitely more palatable lunch. MMmmm, banana peppers!

Good for your for going to Subway. Those soups sound nasty. Yuck. From now on buy regular soups - some of them are nutritionally almost the same as the light soups. I've found some pretty healthy regular soups. Try Progresso.

Was it the brand that starts with a C and was once made famous by Andy Warhol? Because ... I kind of like that soup. I usually add lentils or beans or chicken to it, and some curry or cajun spices. On second thought maybe it's my additions that I like.

I bet Emma was pleased as all get-out.
