I've never colored my hair


But it looks like I'm gonna have to start! My 16 yr old son, is on his first behind the wheel driving lesson as I'm writing this post. I thought I was OK with this and even though he wouldn't let me take a picture of him w/his instructor to forever remember this day, I was still OK. Then it happened...about an hour into his 2 hour lesson, my cell phone rang showing a number that I didn't recognize. I quickly checked the business card the instructor left and saw that it was his number. I took a deep breath and calmly answered the phone. It was RJ, "Hi Mom, I'm just checking to see if I'm available to take my next lesson on Aug. 1st?" I replied (hoping that he couldn't tell my heart was beating in my throat), "Yeah, that's fine, what time?" He told me the time and I hung up. OMG!!!! Could that not have waited 'til they returned? I was certain that the call was from the instructor letting me know that there had been some kind of horrible accident, or that my son wasn't trainable and that I'd have to come pick him up. Now I have to wait for another hour before he returns. All the while praying for calmness and that my good friend/hairdresser will be able to do something with the countless gray hairs I've just acquired.

Thanks again for the warning. I'll be driving the opposite direction of your house for the next month!

you are only 10 months younger than me, have twice as many kids as me and you have NEVER colored your hair..?!
I am so jealous! My 16 year-old is at the same stage of the driving game as yours but I have had a standing appointment to have my grey covered every 6 weeks for at least 5 years now.
It's just not fair.

Cheri,
SO great to find your blog through Susie's blog... I've been through the whole "driving my grey thing" with Paris... my hairdresser LOVES me now; we helped put a great addition on her house. :o)

It sounds like you are learning what Paul meant when he said, "Pray without ceasing." Of course, after that he says, "give thanks in everything."...

As far as the greying of your hair, you can always do what I did (until last year) and call it blond!
