DST, pie, hair, & bad princess

I have a love hate relationship with Daylight Savings Time (DST). Did you know that Benjamin Franklin originally came up with the concept of DST? Also, the proper term is Daylight Saving (no "s") Time. But, it sounds much better with the "s" at the end of "Saving" that most people use "Savings". Okay, I know--enough. Also, I thought that DST was meant to save energy. The environmentalist in me applauds that. However, the Department of Energy conducted a study which discovered that DST has no affect on energy saving. Oh well... The whole point of this discussion was my love & hate relationship with DST. I enjoy the longer "days" in the summer but I hate the shorter "days" in the winter especially when I go to work and come home in this



I was rather productive this weekend. I made this and half is already gone!

Tuesday, my daughter and I went to get our hair done. It's a fun, girl thing to do. We always get comments about how long her hair is Yep, it's long and she's tender headed and it's a pain to deal with. But, her daddy told her she can cut her hair never ever ever. What's up with Black men and long hair? Anyway, I wasn't happy with the job either stylist did on our hair. I can do it better and cheaper at home. This may be the cheapskate in me but I don't think I'll be going to the hair salon again any time soon.
Well, you remember our little princess? She's been bad at school. Not really bad such as fighting, hitting, cussing, and such but annoyingly bad such as laughing during lessons, not listening, playing, and acting like a baby. If miss princess doesn't get her act together, she'll be confined to her room in the castle and won't have her big birtday celebration. She was lectured to by her father yesterday and by me yesterday and this morning. I don't have a problem with her being silly, playing, and having fun. However, when she doesn't focus on her school work there's a BIG problem. Education is big in my family and excellence is expected. Stay tuned
