Month 26 and my computer is broken :-(

Saturday will make 26 months with my Sisterlocks. I need to retighten my hair bad, but really I need a professional retightening because March will make a year of me doing it "on my own", including the 3-4 month spell of having no retightening at all. When my money gets correct, I'll be making an appointment with GiGi. Hopefully soon. Since I need a retightening I don't mess with my hair much. There are small and thin root beds which in my humble opinion are too weak to be manipulating. I've been combining locks to save them and have been retightening here and there. It's growing rather fast. Free style is all I can do right now. Although, I am dreaming of other options with the length. I love my sister's hair. Even though her mane is thick, I like the way it has it's own salon style cut. I think they call it "Lock envy".
For the last week or so, my computer has been broken. Of course, EVERYTHING is on my internal hard drive, which I cannot get into. Oh well. I have been using Jen's Mac G4, and patiently waiting for some help from my computer technician back in California to give me some tips on what to do and a quote to fix the thing.

This has surely slowed down my photo blogging, and writing on my desktop in general. I have been trying to post something/anything that comes to mind on my blogspot writing blog. My goal is to transfer a lot of stuff I've written on my Live Journal onto my writing blog so it will all be in one place. Blogger is more user friendly to me than Live Journal. Props still go out to Live Journal, cause that's where I cut my teeth with this blogging thing over two years ago. My other struggle is learning how to get back into my website to make changes since they upgraded my account. So much to do, so little time.

I took this picture of myself with a few locks over my eye with the macro feature on my camera. Click on the picture to enlarge it. Cool, huh?

I hope your computer gets well soon!

Cute pictures. When you go 3-4months without retightening, does it start to make your scalp kind of sore? Maybe this is only when you try to style and manipulate the locs. I like the two tone look. Do you plan to color again?

Hey ladies,

I finally dropped my computer off last night to have a friend look at it. As you can see, I can't post collages like I like to because my sister's Mac can't use the picasa program. Bummer.


I'm not sure about the soreness but I know I'd rather have freshly retightened locks over loose ones any day. I just don't trust messing with them too much when I need a retightening. I'm not sure at this point if I want to color my hair again. Jen threatens she's going to color her locks blond. We'll see.

Tanya, LaChanda, and Karen,

Thanks for the compliments. This camera is very fun to use. Can't wait until I sit down long enough to learn all the features. Those shots were fun to take.

Detra, Jen's hair is growing fast as well. It's interesting that we were locked only about three weeks apart. You know I'll have the camera in February for DFW Gathering #3. Thanks!!!
