Simplify: Roast Those Vegetables & Cut Thy Hair
That's my advice. You should roast more vegetables and you should probably cut your hair. Both are easy and leave you with great satisfaction.
Winter Vegetables ~ Roasted:
4 carrots, chopped into 1/2" dice
5 red potatoes, chopped into 1/2" dice
2 cups of brussel sprouts, either cut in 1/2 if large or left whole
salt & pepper
Heat oven to 425. Chop all vegetables so they are more or less the same size. Toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Arrange on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast for 30-40 minutes or until golden.
I cut 10 inches off of my hair once before - it was 2007. I was unmarried, living in Boston, working at a creative firm, going out at night, running along the river, and wearing really cute clothes every day.
Doing it again took me right back to that place - a place I felt I could never get back to. Not with a toddler, unending chores, sleepiness, and constant attachment. I feel good. And now maybe people won't think I'm Dylan's nanny because I have an actual hair style!
