I haven't been here in a long time. My last post was August 26th of LAST YEAR!! Well, recap. My locks are now a bit over 3 years old. They've really grown since last year, I'm working on changing my Avatar to show the growth and I'll add some photos in this post.

My hair care routine is pretty much the same. I started using Pantene Daily Moisture Renewal about 2 months ago. Mainly because it was a HUGE bottle for just a little more than my usual Relaxed and Natural. (One of those Sam's purchases), but now I kinda regret it because there's not as much oil in it and my hair isn't as.... moist as I'd like it to be. The Relaxed and Natural was better. Plus the one I'm using now has a chemically smell that I really can't get past. I'm gonna use it up, but I won't be buying more. I still use scented oils mixed in a spray bottle with water to lightly fragrance my locks and I still moisturize with Africa's Best Ultimate Oil. I have a VERY simple lock care routine. I'm freeformed, so I don't twist, though I notice that some of my side locks are thinning at the roots. They are strong, but it's a little unnerving to think one morning I might wake up and one of em is on the pillow next to me, but not attatched to my head. LoL.. I haven't lost a lock yet and there has been no breaking of locks. I'd like to keep it that way. I still LOVE being locked. I'll never go back to being loose again. This is not just a hair do (Though it looks FABULOUS! ) It was a decision I made on a spiritual basis. An acceptance basis.. So my happiness is only deepened when someone says "I love your hair."

Let's see.. I changed jobs. I became a entry level mechanic on 3 wrapping machines, and I recently left that job.. My husband got a new job and we only have one car. We were working together, this job doesn't allow spouses to work together. So I'm tending the house now. Not bad. It's going to take some getting use to, but I think I'll get use to it. :) This is pretty sweet.. Very relaxed. Infact, I haven't been so relaxed and peaceful in a VERY long time.. In almost 2 years. So all in all, I haven't been a homemaker for a long time, but it's good. I have no regrets. :)

Well, I guess that's it.. Oh, I've been exploring Buddhism and Wicca. I know those don't really go together, but oh well.. :) I like them both. I use to be wiccan a long time ago, and it seem alright. I don't really subscribe to any one religion, so you won't see me calling myself either for a VERY long time. I guess the closest thing to my faith is Unitarian Universalist. I believe in many faiths as true, and condemn none. I was raised baptist, which is Christian. I started studying Wicca, which is a Pagan religion. I became interested in Rastafarianism, which is.. I think.. a christian based religion, though it seems to me like a Black Christian Buddhist thing.. And I just said I've been studying Buddhism, which is... Well, Buddhist.. :P So I'm a mixed plate, but they all teach the basic rules. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you- or better. And that's all good.

Alright, that's all for now. I'm sure I'll be here more now that I'm home all day. And now.. Lock Zen...
