Polling the audience.




I don't know what to tell you about my sparse posting here on my blog except that Crew never stops finding new things to dump out, tear apart, climb up onto, open up, toss down the stairs, chew on, unroll, unwrap, bang together, and more. He's a whirlwind from morning til night.
So that's my excuse for not blogging. I don't blame you for not reading. =)
Today I'm asking your opinion, if you're so inclined to leave a comment. It's an easy multiple choice answer. I colored my hair (twice) and cut it myself yesterday. Yes. I have issues. The question I pose to you is this-
Does that make me:
a) desperate
b) cheap
c) crazy
or
d) all of the above.
I'll still like you no matter how you answer the question. I also might just blog a couple of more times before this week is over too. If Crew allows it, that is.

e. busy?

Jennifer said...

I vote for smart & resourceful. Seriously - I'm jealous, wish I could do the same!

Cheryl said...

I would use the word brave. I've never dared to do it myself.

I wish that I was a little braver myself because I do like to save money and it would be more convenient to do it at home when the kiddos are in bed.

With love and hope,
Cheryl

I think it means you have five little ones you are constantly taking care of and there's just not enough "Jody Time."

Your hair looks cute, by the way (as does Crew).

Just Me said...

e. talented?!
I could never color or cut my own hair...thank goodness my sister went to cosmetology school!
(coming out from "lurking" because I enjoy multiple choice :o) been reading/stalking your blog for a LONG time though!)

harmonysong said...

Definitely none of the above! Hope that little man is sleeping at some point while the kiddos are in school so you can rest a little!

Bri said...

It makes you awesomely brave. Kudos! Also a long time just reading I had to comment because I too am a sucker for a multiple choice question.

Becca said...

A mom?

I love the way Crew is looking at you, such adoration for his mommy-love. Very cute!

Becca said...

Oh wait, I misunderstood the question! I thought you were asking which of the following choices best explains your lack of posting. :)

Your hair is super cute, so I vote for crazy as in crazy smart!

Jess and Krissy said...

I vote smart. I do my own all the time. Finding time to go get anything done is impossible, and I don't even have kids!

Jessica said...

z. You Rock!
At least if those are pics of the "new" do. It looks great. I've tried cutting my own hair before and it...looked nasty. So I leave that to the professionals, but I think I'm going to try coloring my own hair this fall too. Just for something spicy. I don't consider it cheaps...just fun.
Blessings.

Liz said...

You might be desperate, cheap, and crazy but your hair is really cute!

Kelley said...

I would say a busy Mom.

Chelsea P said...

If you are anything like me, I would guess cheap. And I expect the whole 'hard to schedule anything ahead' factors in. Plus when it comes to my hair, if I get an idea, I want to do it right now. So I've been in the same boat. Are you happy with the way it turned out?

polly's path said...

wow.
e. impressive
I couldn't cut my hair if my life depended on it. I have a hard enough time putting my earrings on while looking at the mirror.

Dana said...

e. smart!

Lauren Kelly said...

Girl, in this economy, it makes you sensible, haha!!! :)

ellen said...

I was desperate for a haircut last week and drove 45 minutes to a friend's house to have her cut it and it was worth it!

Melanie said...

Sorry, gotta go with something that's not on the list...creative!! With a tad of bravery...looks really good by the way:)

Melinda AKA medialady said...

how about . . .

e. Very talented mother!!!!!

It looks great!!!! (I color my hair, too!)

Ashleigh said...

I vote for brave and chic! I wish I could cut and color my own hair and look THAT good afterwards HA!

Vicky said...

E... as lovely as ever :) I color mine too but haven't dared take a scissors to it yet... maybe you'll inspire me!

Jackie said...

Hair looks great !

I say...you are just a busy Mom & wife. Make no excuses for that !
It's a gift & a privilege.

Crew is adorable !

LucieP said...

S. for saavy!
I do as much as I can to myself...then I don't feel bad if I wanna change it, I'm not that mad because I didn't pay all that money, and I'm kinda glad because I'm a talented girl! :)~

Heather from Ontario Canada said...

Desperate
cheap
crazy

I'm not sure if any of the above match you Jodi. resourceful maybe? daring? brave? maybe a bit off the top....pun intended.
And using the word I needed to type to verify this remard... perhaps a bit nervi too **grin**

I'm looking forward to your next post :)

Michelle said...

Clever! I can color my own hair but never will I have the courage to cut it!

Miss your posts Jody!! Hope to see more piccies! :)

Lara said...

I've been desperate to cut/color my own hair, too! I just wish mine would look as cute as yours does! I've had to break down & get someone to repair the damage after I try it -- LOL!

JenD said...

e. chic or resourceful or maybe a scapper turned clipper

Greta said...

none of the above! why pay someone to do it when you can do it better? I think it looks great!

I loved the comment you left for me on my blog. You made me smile - thank you! I miss our get togethers and crazy times. Hopefully sooner than later we'll end up in the same room again. :)

Anita said...

none of the above!
I'd say you're being a wise steward of what God has blessed you with.

The Kahler Family said...

Resourceful and it looks adorable!

Madeline said...

my choice: lovely

Regina said...

f - fantabulous!!!

Rhonda said...

Cheap but creative??

Do you know why I had to come to this blog today? To get a buttercream frosting recipe. I thought you would find it amusing that when asked about butter cream frosting this blog was the first thing that popped into my head.

Camille said...

SMART is the very first word that popped into my mind!!
