Letter of Thank You Very Much Intent

c.a.n.n.o.t  catch up for the life of me…

Of course I’m late, and of course I’m hoping y’all think I’m just tricky and efficient, instead of tardy and overwhelmed.  So here’s today’s combined version of Fourson’s Letters of Intent and  Kmama’s Thank You Very Much (which I know was due yesterday, Thank You Very Much :)

 

To My Bipolar Hair ~

(Gee, I never thought I’d type those words).

Seriously, do you need to make me cringe every morning when I get a glimpse of my attempts to tame you?  I’ve treated you well all these years… and I believe some reciprocation is long over due, Thank You Very Much.

I’d appreciate it if you would quit this whole Am I Straight/Am I Curly identity crisis.  A compromise of FRIZZY is not acceptable… It’s getting old, Thank You Very Much.

And speaking of old?  Thank You Very Much for the amazing gray hairs that surprisingly grow STRAIGHT and STRAIGHT UP every stinking time.

Those gray hairs?  Thank You Very Much for ensuring that your little “may cause hair to grow back gray” side effect is stated in the tiniest print, Rogaine.

And the reason I need that gray-hair-growing-medicine?  Well, Thank You Very Much PCOS for ensuring that while my hair is falling out the top of my head, I can grow a 5 o’clock shadow to embarrass a redneck.

See, I’ve tried hard to keep your long locks happy.  I did the whole spiral perm thing for years until I realized that you were curly enough on your own – so I quit dousing you in those chemicals and let you grow wild and free.  And did you appreciate that one bit?  Nope, Thank You Very Much. 

And I’ve only used the teensiest bit of color on you – always temporary and for fun.  I thought you’d enjoy a bit of variety.  Ahem, GRAY is not variety, Thank You Very Much.

That whole-bottle-of-Sun-In-at-one-sitting fiasco?  Let’s keep that between ourselves, Thank You Very Much.  (Good Lord am I in trouble if Mr. Daddy finds the photographic evidence).

Your misdeeds have increased to the point that I am terrified of how our Christmas pictures turned out.  I’m sure Mr. Daddy looks handsome as ever in his wash-and-wear do, and Itty Bit in his little hat.  Please, oh please, tell me you didn’t ruin our family photo session?  Thank You Very Much.

Now… let’s say we try to have a good hair day 2 days out of the week, k?  Or I might have to introduce you to my friend, the ceramic flat iron… (which, ya know, I don’t exactly have yet, but someone might notice that it would make a good Christmas gift or something… right?  Not like my husband reads my blog or anything…)

Sincerely,

Your Frizzed Out Owner

(ps – If you think I’m being a bit harsh about my hair… check out this post for just how bad it can get.  You’ll feel sorry for me, I promise :)

Come on – head on over to Kmama’s and Julie’s and share some linky love :)

ThankYouVeryMuch

You are so funny...and you are NOT late for my Thank You's...you're right on time.

I'm sorry PCOS has been so unkind to you. Thankfully (I guess) for me it's more of a fertility and extra 20 pounds that I just cannot get rid of no matter how hard I try, so why even try, right??

Thanks for linking up.

Can someone please explain to me why men look distinguished as they get older and we just look old?! I fumble with my hair constantly and you think since I went to school to take care of the locks I would be better at it but that isn't the case...I STINK at it! I haven't had a haircut in I think two years and it's just pathetic! I do swear by my product though I LoveLoveLove Bed Head (the hair care line ~ not the actual bed head which I frequently have!).

PS. I would have the hubby get up with Monkey in the middle of the night but he doesn't have what she needs :( Although I am betting he is probably awaken when she cries and he's always good about changing a diaper whenever needed! ;)

Rach you are the funniest sweetest girl in the world
This is totally my life

I feel your hair pain. Desperately! I purposely did not put a picture of me on my Thanksgiving post - even though it was proof I exist. My hair was horridly frizzy! Two days later I got it cut. It's a whole lot shorter and not quite as frizzy, but still a pain!

Maybe I'll do a before and after haircut post. Maybe... I'm not quite brave enough to post pictures of me. :D

I got Photoshop Elements about a year ago and am just now starting to figure out exactly how much it can do. It's a lot of fun to fiddle with photos!

K said...

and you look GORGEOUS in the picture where we are supposed to feel sorry for you BTW

Foursons said...

I'm agreeing with "K"...what picture did I look at that I am supposed to say "Oh poor Rachel!"? You look fantastic in those photos and your hair doesn't look frizzy to me at all. Maybe I need glasses in my old age (ya' know how those birthdays age us). You'll have to point out the frizz to me.

Thanks for linking up...tomorrow! You're a genius girly.

I'm glad I'm not the only one w/ unmanageable hair! At least you have variety...I'm stick-straight and limp 24/7.

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

Gray hairs are so unkind. Not to mention UNWELCOME! Yeah, I have JUST A FEW myself.

And, I am so glad I am not the only one who use the entire bottle of Sun In in my hair... ironically, I still wish I could reproduce that same color. It sure was A LOT cheaper than my visits to my hairdresser!

OK, THIS I totally get

You need to try John Freida Dream Curls Spray and then let it dry naturally. Seriously. You can also get the BioSilk stuff and use it to tame any frizzies that may come but I didn't have any issues with the spray.

Brandi said...

Way to multitask! I'm not even going to go look at the "poor Rach" picture 'cause I've yet to see a bad picture of you. :P

Gray hair makes me crazy. I get it in one spot right in the front of my head above my bangs, so it's really noticeable... and my hair is straight and my gray hair is frizzy. Ugh.

Ooh, I want a ceramic flat iron too! You've just given me a great idea. I'll leave a few subtle hints for Daddy Bub on my blog, ya know, since he can't keep off of it. ;)

ModernMom said...

LOL I just found you by following the "Thank you very much" linky.
Great post! I don't call mystraight hairs grey ...I call them off colour blond

Melissa said...

You are so funny! Thanks for the laugh!

Lisa said...

So are you behind or early? LOL You posted this early THURSDAY MORNING, but wrote like you thought it was Friday. But are you writing it on purpose on THURSDAY so you wont have you on Friday. Hmm... I think you are confused on your days! LOL And I have flat as a flitter hair, so hair trouble is hair trouble, so I hear you. I either look like a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader hairstyle, or a haven't washed my hair in 3 days look. Fun, huh? Men are so lucky. Plus mine is thin due to thyroid. Thin, fine, flat, LOVELY, huh? That is one reason I dye it once a month. That and so when I do get gray hairs, I wont even mind because I will be used to dying my hair regularly. Girl with a plan here ;)

City girl turned Country Girl said...

LOL you are silly!!! I looked at that other post and your hair is gorgeous!! Throw some mousse in it and go! That's what I try to do with mine LOL!!

Jen said...

I loved this letter! The whole, Am I straight/Am I curly identity crisis was hilarious!

Happy Friday:)

ModernMom said...

I came back to tell you I'm your newest follower:) See you soon!

robin said...

I hate bad hair days! I've been having thinning hair for years...and those stray gray ones that pop up - well, it's difficult to even get those as my eyesight is getting poor, lol!

And I agree with others...the alleged bad hair pics look great, imho!

Rudy Rukus said...

Well I personally think you are totally cute but whatever!! My girls have crazy hair and we LOVE infusium moisturology. Not that you were asking for suggestions but you know just in case. haha

K said...

thank you for your simply lovely comment on my blog -so touched and you are right you know

semicrunchymama said...

I just stumbled across your blog while poking around online today, and sat here and read your last ten entries or so. You've completely made my day -- I love your letters of intent & true stories! Just wanted to let you know that you put a well-needed smile on someone's face after enduring quite a crabby morning!

Must admit...I too LOVE those cute curls! :)
