Katie's Transition / September 1, 2019

Things I Would Rather Do than Dye My Hair

I’m a working mother.

Time with my sons is precious to me. And having to spend 2-3 hours in a salon chair on a Saturday morning or weekday afternoon is (in my opinion) a miserable waste of time, when there are so many other things I’d rather be doing.

Think about it – if you work 40 hours a week, and you only get two days off, 3 hours to spend on a chore like getting your hair colored is a LOT of time spent doing something that is not fun, is expensive, and (for some of us) is itchy or painful.

Here are a few things I’d rather do:

  1. Pack a picnic, grab the kids, and go to the beach
  2. Walk around the beautiful Getty Center
  3. Read a classic mystery, like Some Buried Caesar by Rex Stout
  4. Plant some succulents
  5. Call my Mom
  6. Call my Sister
  7. Declutter the House
  8. Volunteer my time to a great cause or community organization
  9. Play with my pug
  10. Participate in the King Arthur Flour Bakealong
  11. Lie on the couch and watch Poldark or Being Human, so I can drool over Aidan Turner
  12. Finally organize my photos into albums..or something
  13. Look at pictures of cute Valais Blacknose Sheep
  14. Play board games or cards

I could go on with this list forever.

But how about you?

What would you do with an extra 3 hours once a month?
