BYOC - Bring Your Own Crazy! ...Compliments of the fab Draz

It’s Friday fun day! That means it’s time for BYOC – Bring Your Own Crazy! We answer a few questions to get to know each other better and to give our blogging brains a break. Copy to your own blog if you so desire and have fun!

1. Are you a “wake up on the first beep of the alarm clock” or a “hit the snooze button 50 times before you get up” kind of person? Is your alarm clock set to the right time?

• I don't even know where the snooze button is on my clock...because 5 more minutes is just not enough for me. I set my alarm for 1 hour earlier than I have to get up and when it goes off I reset it for an hour later. If I woke up and knew I only had 5 more minutes to sleep I would be pissed off all day.

2. Do you decorate for any holidays other than Christmas?

• I don't even decorate for Christmas...I am a big ole scrooge about decorating for the holidays. I don't like change, so when things start getting moved around to put up the tree I flip out a bit. I think it's from years of working with children with autism and their need for just kinda rubbed off on over the years to flip out over change. Yes, I have been known to hand flap and rock back and forth over it. The Rockstar tells me to get over it and decorates any way.

3. Would you consider yourself a spontaneous fly by the seat of your pants kind of person or a massive OCD controlling planner kind of person or someone in between?

•I am totally not a list maker of any kind. I don't even make a grocery list. I am the world's biggest procrastinator. I think about making lists and plans, but then I always say I will just do it later. I do, however, tend to gravitate towards OCD, little miss planners, making lists about the lists they gotta make kinda people. I like for things to be planned out...I just don't wanna be the one doing the planning.

4. Tell me some of your MUST have hair products that you use consistently….you know - share your “hair routine”.

• I am a former hairdresser and have kept my license active for the last 15 years just so I could get discounts on professional hair products. I use an array of different products. I have naturally curly hair, so on days I wear my hair curly I just have to wash it, slap some gel in it, blow dry for a minute or two and be on my way. I usually only straighten my hair in the winter. I like my hair straight, but in the summer I am in the sun and pool so often that I don't want damage my hair more by applying so much heat to it.
My hair grows super fast. I get my hair done (foiled) about every 6 weeks. I color the new growth myself every 2 weeks.

5. Repeat question: How was your week and what are your upcoming weekend plans?

• My week was pretty good except for having a tire blow out on my way to work the other day. I have a busy weekend planned. My sister is coming into town, The Boy is going to prom, The Rockstar has to play at a benefit and of course, it will be Mother's Day. And of course I have to do the usual grocery shopping and house cleaning some time in between all that.

Hope all of you have a great Mother's Day!!

I wish I had the inclination to actually do something with my hair but it all sounds so exhausting and I've never been very good at it. :)
