I have this long curly hair.  I haven't had long hair since I got married almost 20 years ago.  I have rocked a curly, fluffy bob for about the same amount of time.  I'm finding that I like long hair and I am also finding that this long hair suits me.  I'm also finding out that with every good thing, there are not so great things.  My long hair tends to get tangled.  Just last night I was in my bathroom attempting to detangle this mass of hair just to braid it and go to sleep.

What does this have to do with anything?  Well, stress has hit.  It's the end of an academic quarter which could always be stressful for me.  I don't know what happens when the weather gets hot, people tend to lose their minds.  Throw in just for fun, a remodel, school and the presence of a teenager and a pre-teen.  It's not fun.  I have tangles in my life.  There is other stuff all over the place.  Little things like making phone calls to find out information during my day when all I want to do is just do my work in peace.  Those were the things that Santi did.  Then I come home and I need to deal with hungry kids.  Do they ever stop eating?  Man, I had help for the majority of their lives.  I can't imagine how single mothers do it when the kids are younger.  Right now it's two against me!!!

I don't let tangles bother me though.  I'm not one to stay home because I can't get a tangle out.  I use some detangler (Jesus, prayer, The Bible) and I wash and condition my hair.  If the ends get too dry, I cut them off.  It's not a problem.  I can be stressed out because adulting can be hard but I still have a good God to go to even when it gets hard.  Praise the Lord!!!
