durr…

i had the perfect post all planned out.

i was going to post some photos of my new ‘do. i seriously chopped my hair. well, i think i did. the husband said he can’t even tell. bah. it’s SIX inches shorter in the back.

EDIT: ah, he sent it! um…shiny much??

(unfortunately NOT the best picture of me. when i asked the husband if it was okay to use, he shrugged and only offered, “you look much better in real life”)

i was going to post some pictures of my new computer. lordy, she’s pretty…even if she’s not a mac.

i was going to post a perfect Isabella shot. It was her with all her gear. the things she can’t live without. paci, bottle, boots doll, and her pink-striped socks. it’s hilarious.

i was going to post some photos that i took last night at the martell grandchildren family mega-portrait session at the superstore.

EDIT: ah! some more!

(can you see Isabella’s necklaces and bracelets in the shots? she will NOT take them off. under any circumstances. she’s a total diva. great…now i’ve got two of them…)

but alas…the best laid plans. the husband threw all the pictures on a disk for me, i brought it into work, and HUZZAH! …it doesn’t work. i’m hoping that when he wakes up, he’ll forward some of them to me.

i think all three of my sister-in-laws were ready to kill me last night. i wasn’t trying to be difficult during the picture picking process…but i should have realized that too many women stirring the pot (is that the phrase even?) no, maybe it’s too many cooks in the kitchen? that seems to ring a bell…

…i don’t know. i guess it was because i felt like i was paying for portraits, i should end up with the ones i wanted. but i guess it’s what always happens when there are three sisters vs. one sister-in-law. i’m the odd man out. i should have done what i usually do, which is bow out, and just lay low. it’s much easier that way.

but in the end, i’m ending up with a really nice 5×7 of my 3 monkeys. a 5×7 of the 10 grandchildren (and all three of my kids look pretty cute…BONUS!) and a 4×6 of the husband and his three sisters. (an impromptu shot that i thought should have been in black and white since everyone was all stripey and different clashing colored…but i should have just kept my mouth shut on that one too…)

  1. I hear you about in-laws and stuff. Last month MTM and my SIL were putting together something for their parents’ anniversary. I tossed out one idea, my SIL ignored me, and I left the room. It’s complicated sometimes.

    Re: unreadable disk… maybe you should invest in a little USB drive that you can use as a sneakernet?

  2. LOVE the new hair style. Very shiny – but shiny is good!
    And, really, laying low is kind of a good idea. I get totally stressed picking the superstore pictures. Too many options.
    We sooo need a family photo soon.

    ~Ha! Shiny face…not shiny hair! ~Ali

  3. A second comment because of the photos…

    I’m with your husband, honestly. If you hadn’t mentioned it, I don’t think I would have noticed the length difference. I would have just thought it was less straight (more body?)

    ~the body, unfortunately, will disappear after i shower. it will be stick straight again… ~Ali

  7. I totally hear you on the SILs. We do the grandkid pic once every couple of years and it is always stressful. I am like you – If I am paying, I am picking. I really can’t help that her kids are not as cute as mine and they don’t look as good in the pictures! ;)

  8. Ali, your hair looks really terrific – I am jealous, there is SO NO way mine would EVER look like that (i.e. too wavy, too much hair, yuck).

    Tova – BTW, hey I know that banana medicine – my son has been on it for 18 months LOL (it’s called Bactrim here and he has a Primary immune deficiency, so hence used as a preventative). He loves it, go figure!

  9. I love your hair. I’ve been growing mine for a year, and I think it’s approximately 1 inch longer.

  10. Your hair is beautiful Ali, I really like that style on you! And your kiddo’s .. super cute! 10 grandchildren .. how great to have them altogether in a picture .. neat idea. Do you get an enlargement to give your parents at Chrismuka (sp?) ? It’s nice to have summer portraits when everyone is all tanned!

  13. You kids are adorable!!! I would have been vocal about the portraits too, I mean, you were paying for them.

    My daughter, also a diva at the ripe old age of 2. She needs her hat and sunglasses everywhere she goes. A different pair of glasses for each outfit. Yeah.

  22. I didn’t notice the length difference when I saw you on the weekend at all…. Thought it looked great as usual, though! And, I just want to say if you think YOUR hair is shorter than it was….SHUT IT! I’m not talking about it. Tears are forming.
