A little time off

Sorry I am hoping to have something new before too long. I have oodles and oodles of ideas to experiment with, but a lack of time. Last Saturday a very dear girlfriend of mine took me out for the last break I am going to get in a while! She took me out to dinner for my birthday and we hung out and even stayed up gabbing until 2:30 in the morning. Sadly--- that is the last of the fun I will be having for a while. My dear husband lost his job. He's an electrician and work is slow right now. Jobs are being canceled and stopped because of the economy. So they have been forced to lay off a number of people. So my fun job... and my hobbies... are either being put on the back burner or turned into serious work. So--- that means more time on the clock and less time on the Internet. There is an end in sight though. Because he is an electrician for the union he is already on the books waiting for work to pick up. Then they will pull him off the books and he'll be working again. And I can go back to hobbies like this. I may pop in with a new hair do if I get a chance here and there, but for the most part I'll just have to take a little time off. Check out the other hair bloggers out there and I'll see ya when I can.

  3. You will be missed during the time you are gone. But it is completely understandable. I hope that jobs come up quickly for your husband and that he is back to work in no time.

  16. Sorry to hear about your misfortune. My husband is an electrician for the union also. What state are you in? It is hard in this industry right now especially. We have some contacts that may have work if you are interested. I know you are not supposed to do side jobs as a union guy but being benched I am not sure if that applies. Anyway I could ask around if you would like. Of course I am assuming we are in the same area. But if there is anything we can do let me know. cjdemille@msn.com

  20. That stinks. Unfortunately its what is happening all over. I hope its not too long too, but frankly, until I've had the baby (and maybe awhile after) I just don't have the patience for fancy hair anyway. I'm feeling overrun with cute ideas that I'm too lazy to try :) I'm not criticizing them, I swear. I'm just too lazy, so take care and we'll see you when we see you.

  21. So sorry to hear about the lay off. We battled that beast last year. I will check back...getting addicted to your blog! I will give an ad a click or two on the way out.

  22. I just had my last girls' night out last week for the same reason. It's not a very comfortable dilemma! I hope that things pick up very soon and I'll keep checking in to see if you've got any good news. Good luck!
