- Today I had a beautiful family of natural haired ladies. My patient had 3 month old gorgeous locs and both her daughters were natural. mY patient started our little hair convo by asking about my hair. Her face lit up when I told her I was locing. I felt the same and we had a nice little hair talk, made my day lol
- I want to enroll Ava in a dance school. I spent a few hours yesterday researching schools via the web and became very annoyed. Most schools dont represent themselves well at ALL on the web! I at first wanted to send her to PHILADANCO, a historic well know dance school in philly. I however was turned off by their website as it want very informative, didnt have a email contact person, and wasnt hosting any type of open house. It was just like fill out the app, pay the fees and?????? Most other schools were much smaller, but at least had ok websites. The school I will be going to tomorrow (open house) is in my neighborhood, a few towns over. I thought the website was informative and emailed the director for more info, she got right back to me and invited me for an added open house that hadnt been listed on the site yet. I am very excited for this school because I stalked their facebook page and the parents just seem to love it. My only concern is that its very much predominately white. I dont want my child to be the token black kid. I dont want her to look around and wonder why she doesnt look like everyone else. I know I cant pick the class, and if there arent many kids of color enrolled then there isnt anything I can do. I guess im the one with the issue and thats ok, I want Ava to see the world as it is and its not all white. Im sure she doesnt think like this lol. Anyways, part of my wants to send her regardless, at least to get a feel, because most importanly she wants to dance. She would not care if it were all white kids, black, chinese whatever. I guess as long as the are nice and respect eveyrone, we shouldnt have any problems. Maybe Im just tripping......

I'm so serious this is exactly how I've been feeling. I can barely get through this post, lol
I do t even know where to start! I will start with my running training. I have fallen off the wagon BIG time. It all started with my little injury. I took about two weeks off and after my ankles recovered I got back out running last week. I only ran one day though :( this week, I ran once so far even though I really didn't feel like it. I don't feel as good running as I did when I first started though. I have lost major confidence and optimism. But the show must go on, so even if I only make it the track once a week that's way more than I ever had done :)
Ok, the hair....... I retwisted last week and it sucked. I did not feel like it but my hair was a tangled mess. I thought I would be a loyal retwister, but I'm not. I do t mind how my hair looks when it's not freshly twisted. It's either that or pure laziness lol. Anyways, I twisted with ORS twist n loc gel. I was just curious but I shouldn't have wasted my time. I notice no difference in hold, but it did flake on me and my hair is pretty dry in some parts. Oh well, I still won't retwist until at least next week. I will never use anything other than natural stuff to twist, definitely nothing with alcohol in it.
All for now, not much else going on. I hope this lazy bug takes a hike soon lol

I thought about doing yoga while im on break from running, but its not the same. I tried yoga before and its ok, but kinda boring.. It also feels good to be outside. I could take my ipad and a mat and do yoga in my backyard but that would totally creep my neighbors out, lol. It seems like it would be fun though. Theres nothing more peaceful than early morning quietness, its so peaceful. As Ava says "just the sunshine and the birds" lol on that note, Im out

I have Afro twist/locs. It makes my hair look very full and braid outs are always fabulous. Gives me the look of loose hair without the fuss!
