What happened, you ask? Let's start from the beginning, shall we?
Picture this. Me, Layla, Sammie. Our dog. Layla lounging on the couch, watching Good Luck Charlie, her new favorite t.v. show, before we head upstairs for a bath. Sammie...he's chillin' somewhere in the house. Me? Naked, in the downstairs powder room, dying my own hair. Nice, huh? You like that visual, dontcha?!? M-hmmmm....
Well, okay...then picture this! Me in that state....and then the power goes off!!!!
Yeah. For real. Houston hasn't had any...I mean ANY....significant rain all.this.year. But it decides it is high time to rain. And not only that. But to storm. And storm in a may-jah way!
So my lights go out just after I put some color on my roots...and on the ends of my hair. Then...nothing! No light. All darkness.
So that did it! The funk was OVER!!!! Oh-ver!!!!
I couldn't help but stand there in the complete darkness and giggle. Naked. With my hair half colored. The other half not. With my baby girl screaming for me on the couch. And my dog cowering in the corner.
The funk was over. Reality check set in.
I really do NOT have it that bad! And I need to get over myself. I am lucky I have a broken ankle to hobble around on. And a mother who can loan me her car. And this house. The house that is keeping me dry from the pouring rain. And that baby girl! That baby girl who is crying FOR ME!!!!
I like to call it, "a check yourself before you wreck yourself" moment!
So that is that. I was in a funk. Now it's over. I am glad.
I still have no new car. (boooo!)
I still have a broken ankle..."that is repairing..." (yay!!!!) And I don't have to wear that big boot foot cast thingy anymore....that's fabulous. Except for the fact that the broken ankle "popped" last night. And not in a good way. So. I am still in the boot. But it's okay. I'm over myself, remember?
So instead of reading all.of that!!!!
I could have showed you this picture....
And you would have known it is all peaches and rainbows and hedgehogs over here now...but instead I fill your head with all MY crap!!!! Yes...that is I!!!!
This is the Meli Faif Life....I thought you knew?
