I finally took the plunge...and had my hair streaked, highlighted, whatever you want to call it. My gray roots are just too noticeable in the brown that I've been used to all my life (except for one brief fling as a blonde about 10 years ago). My current plan is to gradually lighten, until I'm a gray grandma. Then maybe I'll have low-lights put in. We'll see how much my students freak out at walking in my classroom and seeing me age 10 years overnight! See what you think.
I love people: Old ones, young ones, and all ages in-between. If you are a person and you are reading this, guess what? I LOVE YOU, you lucky dog! I adore my family most of all...and can I just say right here that grandkids really ARE the best? I am married to Darwin Gifford. Since there's only one of this wonderful man, you're out of luck. I got him first. We've been married 40 years now, and they truly are the best years of my life. We were blessed with 7 super-intelligent, talented and loving children: Aaron, Andrew, Katie, Janna, Shauna, Kendall, and Julianne.
