I love nails!

Being unemployed for the moment (long moment....over a yr!), I've learned to do some things myself. My daughters are always wanting to get their nails done (DD#2 settles for glue-on nails), but we don't have the extra funds for them. A former co-worker told me that she did her own nails, which looked like she went to the salon. She told me to buy the french manicure set with the nail strips and do it myself. Well, after much trial and error, the end results are shown in the pics! I'm so proud of myself! I used my Avon nail corrector pen to clean up the lines, as the guides don't get them completely straight when you pull them off. Now I'm going to attempt my older daughters nails, if she lets me!!! Wanted my nails to look cute today for our Pastor & First Lady's Anniversary service!!

One Week Down!!!

Today completes the first week of school and by the grace of God, I'm stilll sane!!! WooHoo! Everybody has gotten to school on time and remembered to take nearly everything. Of course, DD#2 forgot her schedule the first day and couldn't find her gym shorts on the third day, and FS forgot his lunch one day, but overall we did good. DD#1 likes her cosmetology class (thank God!) and I hope I make it through the rest of the year having to take her every morning. After spending almost $1K for this class, you'd think the school district could at least provide bus transportation to and from the school, which is in another district. But, that would be too easy. The kids have to be dropped off and then the bus transports them back to their home campus. Oh well, at least I have free hairdos for me and DD#2 to look forward to in the future!!!
