6/21/12 - Team Work



Teamwork comes in all shapes and sizes.  I couldn’t do what I’m doing if I didn’t have a lot of love and support.  Thank you to everyone that “gets” what I’m trying to do and supports me through it.  It’s not easy and God gave me you to get me through.  Love and hugZ to each of you – even if it’s just an occasional comment, it helps.

We make a good team.

Speaking of teams....
 
Welcome to our newest, wonderful readers!

Deb C. doesn’t list any information on her profile and as you all know by now, that’s okay by me.  We’re just glad you’re here Deb.  Welcome!  I can’t quite make out your avatar icon but I like the words I can read.  Too cute!

Sara Dawson has a blog, but viewing is by invite only.  Sara, I’d loved to check it out, http://wide-eyed-musings.blogspot.com/.  If not, no problem.  Again, just glad you’re here.  Welcome!

Back to the Blog....
I also get courage from you.  I talk a lot about the changes I’ve made since October 22.   The changes have been small and large.   A small change I’ve made is to cut my hair and quit wearing make-up.  It’s been a double-edged sword.  And I guess, in some circles, less hair and no make-up wouldn’t be considered “small” change.  But in my world, compared to the rest of the changes I’ve made lately, it’s a relatively small occurrence.

Still, I haven’t been brave enough to post a picture of the new me.  Until now.

WHY NOW?

On my j.o.b., I recently went from temp to perm.  My temp agency came by and wanted to know if they could take a picture to post on their website.  Horrified, I quickly said no.  Then I realized how silly I’m being.  After all, I’m the one that chose to quit wearing make-up.  I’m the one that chose to cut my hair.  Why was I hiding?

So, I went to work the next day and asked my coworkers to take a picture with me.  With their permission, I sent the picture to my agency to post on their website.

Without further adieu, here is a picture of me and my new RV “style”.  It’s kind of ironic that it may be the last pic you see of me for quite some time.  I’m starting a new way of eating and hopefully the next pic you see will be one where I’m slim and trim.  After all, who knows how tiny my RV may be?  LOL!

But NMW, I won’t hide anymore.  What you see is what you get.

  1. Good for you. I only occasionally wear makeup. As for the hair I just let it grow and put it up. When it gets too long, I get it cut short and donate 12 to 15 or more inches. I haven't paid for a haircut in about 15 years. Now manicures, that's a other story.

    1. @ Susan - a girl HAS to have a good mani/pedi every now and then. :) I tried to donate my hair once and they wouldn't take it - only wanted straight hair (true story). My hair is anything but that. I haven't found "my style" yet but am having fun experimenting. Yours looks great! :)

  2. i like your hair cut, it looks great and to me you look like you have make up on, so if your skin looks this good without, why would you wear it. i was going to ask why you gave up the makeup but then when i saw you i thought why not

    1. @ Sandra - thanks! I haven't found "the" style yet but I'm having fun trying. :) I'll post a picture this weekend where I am wearing make-up... it will be interesting to see if you can tell the difference. My guess is yes! LOL. You're so sweet. Thank you!

  3. Debra, you are such a tease. You look gorgeous. You never needed all that junk on your face anyway. And I love your hairstyle it makes you look much younger. Like I said you are beautiful. You sure you're not part Italian. Especially Neapolitan. Neapolitan women are one of the most beautiful women in the world and and being one myself, we really don't need makeup. Just a little lipstick and/or nail polish when going out someplace fancy. All you need to take care of your skin is use some kind of moisturizing cleanser. That's all I do. I'm the same age as you. And people mistaken me many times for someone in their early 20s. It is so cute when someone in their 30s tries to lecture me and let me know that when I get a little older I'll understand better.keep up the good work. One step at a time. You'll get to live in an and RV. God Bless. 8^)

    1. Patrick, I would refer you to Wikipedia. I will give you the link in a moment. Neapolitan refers to that which comes from Naples Italy.

      Link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neapolitan

      I am referring to women whose ancestral lineage is connected to Naples Italy. And if you noticed you misspelled Neapolitan. Put o after the e instead of in a. And we are definitely not dogs! >^{

    2. @ Patrick - it is SO good to hear from you! I have missed seeing your comments all the way from Belgium. And you are so sweet - younger??? I wish!! LOL. And I think it is extra special that you took time to google anything - I don't care how you spelled it my friend. HugZ right back to you and Piouk.

    1. @ Patrick - too funny! I'm probably closer to a shoe than Naples, Italy. LOL.

  6. Well I think the haircut looks great and must be really easy to take care of. Mine has gotten a lot shorter than what I ever used to wear it and I very rarely ever wear makeup. It's so nice to get up in the morning and just throw on my clothes and out the door.

    1. @ Ann - Thank you! And yes, I am extremely spoiled now to casual clothes and the casual look. I still take care of myself and am still girlie-girl through and through, but I gotta say... no wonder men have been able to get ready so much faster! LOL. :)

      It will be interesting to see what the final look ends up being. I suspect it will be totally different than anything I would have ever imagined I would ever do.

    I like the new hair, short and sassy, very cool for the days ahead in that perfect for you Rv.
    On a few boondocking days, the things needed to simplify to make this happen easily an effertlessly.
    Once again another step forward, good show, your friend in San Diego (((hug)))

  8. Debra - welcome to my world!!! I believe in natural as you know and I think you look beautiful!!! Makeup can be for special occasions and not a noose around your neck. I'm trying to decide if I should cut my hair. But you are so lucky to have naturally thick and hair full of body. I'm so proud of you for all you are doing for yourself.

    1. @ Carolyn my dear friend - love you! And yes, got my hair from my birth dad and have to say that it really is a blessing. During the Sonny & Cher straight hair days? Not so much. LOL. I need a girls' weekend. If your boys can spare you, come on up and we'll go to a salon together! :) Love and hugZ, D
