I don't get the appeal of Diane Kruger. She's just meh imo.

In response to a confession. The only things that I've found that fight static are products with silicone and my ionic hair dryer brush. Avoid products with alcohol like the plague. Also, using a brush with natural bristles is better than a brush that's plastic, because the static can't cling to something like boar's bristles the way it can to plastic. And don't go too crazy with the hair brushing this time of year. It's drier and more prone to breakage. Plus, the friction from the brushing is only going to build more static. I've tried everything, too, like the drier sheets and it never worked for me. Not even temporarily. Oh, and if you're like me and only wash your hair a couple times a week, wrap your hair in a t-shirt at night to cut down on the friction and static build up. Hope this helps.

In response to a confession. I do this. Seriously, am I so selfish that I'm going to make someone wait for me to check out my entire cart of groceries, just to buy a soda and a magazine? I've let multiple people go ahead of me. If I have a cartload and you have three items, please. Go ahead. I actually had let a couple go ahead of me last month, and they told me I restored their faith in humanity. I am never in that much of a hurry. And if it's me with one item, people generally let me go ahead. I had a lady offer to let me go ahead of her, and I flat out refused because she had THREE little kids with her that were right on the border of melt-down town. I've got kids, I know what it looks like. Yeah, I'm not in a hurry. Sometimes it's the little things. Be cool to each other.

I was in line at a Meijer's store this morning. There were 2 ladies ahead of me with carts full of groceries. They both offered to let me go ahead of them. I couldn't thank them enough. It renews my faith there's still good people out there.

In response to a confession. A couple things that help with static: Spray your hairbrush with hairspray and run it through your hair. Or rub hand sanitizer on your hands and run it over your hair. Or run an unscented dryer sheet over your hair - that one's the best.

I think my SIL moved across the country in part to get away from her parents and just BE, all on her own, with her little family. Then MIL moved there. Totally followed her, lives about 20 minutes away. They get along worse than ever now. And yep, when MIL gets old it will be SIL who's there to take care of things. So much for avoiding all that and leaving both parents (and step-parents) for DH & I to deal with in their old age. Hehe. I'm sorry, but I find it ironic. She's not gettin' away that easy.

In response to a confession. My husband and I did this, because his mom is in a similar situation, and it was a huge mistake. HUGE. I won't go into all the gory details, but we basically turned ourselves inside out, when she is the one who should have moved. She was in the better position financially and she also didn't have to leave a job. What it boils down to is that your mom lives where she lives because that is her choice. It isn't up to you to uproot yourself under the belief that she needs you or that it is your duty to raise your kids near her. If my mil wanted to live near us, she would choose us over her friends. (We ended up moving back home, across the country, btw). Not that your situation would end like ours; just be extremely rational and realistic when making this decision, is all I'm saying.

Stupid rant alert: I posted on a hair forum, asking if anyone knew of any products that help with static. I went to great lengths to drive home the point that I was talking about static. Not frizz. Not flyaways. Static. Positive and negative ions and whatnot. Got about ten responses that all pointed me to frizz products and different hair oils for flyaways. *head desk* After stating that I already put oil on the ends of my hair and that it does nothing for static, everyone thinks I'm nuts, like I've got some weird voodoo happening on my head. Maybe I'm just dealing with people from warm climates, who've never had static in their hair. Oh well. Guess it's buns and braids till April.
