Hair -- PLUS: Botox Party 
hair
Quick and hopefully short blog entry (right, Charlie -- hahaha), as it's past 2:00 a.m. and I'm so TIRED tonight...

I've been trying Hyland's Leg Cramps PM: "Hyland's Leg Cramps PM has the same effective ingredients as Hyland’s Leg Cramps, combined with a unique sleep formula to help you fall back asleep and stay asleep so you can enjoy a good night's rest and wake up refreshed." I've found that these seem to work quite well, actually! I've been using the regular non-PM version for some time now, as I have so many issues with leg cramps. Anyway, I highly recommend these, guys, if you have the same issues.

I colored my hair today, using Schwarzkopf hair color, which does a REALLY GREAT JOB of covering gray/white hair. Frankly, as hair becomes more gray and/or white, it just doesn't take color well anymore! But this brand is quite an improvement. Aside from that, the smell of the product is not as unpleasant as some other products. Oh! And I got several compliments on my hair tonight, so I must be doing something right. Hahaha.

It's been VERY COLD here in Portland recently. Okay, not freezing and below yet (thank God!!!), but Portland tends to have very moderate weather, as a rule. There's no doubt in anyone's minds around here that winter has arrived, I can tell you that! And we're all running our furnaces (or burning wood in the fireplace) in this neighborhood. But there was no rain today, so that was nice!

Marilyn got home early and we headed out into rush hour traffic to our botox party at Summer's salon, taking along a bottle of wine for Summer, plus champagne to share with the other attendees. It was most of the usual people, plus some new women. (And missing a few, too -- not sure why. We don't always make these gatherings, so probably some people had other obligations...) It's always such a friendly experience that it makes sense to me to call it a party! (grin)

The botox injections HURT LIKE HELL tonight -- both of us thought so! And I bled like mad (of course, I've always been a bleeder). But I swear I can already see a difference from the treatment! Botox really is amazing. I used to have this huge, deep crease in my forehead -- which I've had since I was a teenager. And you can barely see it now! Just wow. It's worth the pain (and the cost). That's for sure...

Marilyn and I both got compliments on weight loss, too, as these women don't see us often. Marilyn had on the cutest outfit! She really looked fabulous!

We got taken right away, but lingered a bit so I could drink champagne and we could both visit. (smile) Then Summer trimmed Marilyn's bangs before we headed home.

We stopped at Freddies to get a different spaghetti sauce, as we hadn't really liked the one last night. Funny thing??? We seem to always prefer the least expensive jars of sauce! I don't know why, but it's true. Hahaha.

Came home, and got out the leftover spaghetti (cool green pasta I mentioned in yesterday's blog!!!). Then I heated up the new sauce and we had dinner. We really like Ronzoni's SuperGreens spaghetti, and feel like it's healthy eating with the three servings of veggies.

Marilyn is sound asleep as I type this. Not even sure how I managed to wake up enough to blog tonight!

I did try to clean the rug in the living room today, but it just didn't go well. The color is very light and it's shag, so you can probably reason it out. Hahaha. I guess it's time for a new rug... (sigh)

There's more, but whatever. I'm tired and heading to bed!

Sleep well, friends.

Sorry it was painful, but glad you are happy with the results!
