Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head

Okay, I thought it went like this:

If April showers bring May flowers,
what do May flowers bring?

I see nothing in there about March showers and so I'm really not sure what March showers bring to the table. It can't be to water the grass - and since Jon and I plucked all of the healthy, thriving weeds from the backyard, there is again nothing green out there.

Maybe it is in preparation for the April showers. Regardless, I'm missing the sunshine we have been having. Today is rainy, hailing, windy, cloudy and dark.

Which is why I'm sitting here drinking a hot chocolate as I write this post. Maybe March showers bring Swiss Miss.

Today was a relatively slow day. I made a trip to Wal-Mart (and yes, it seems like I go there everyday. I know the people there think so) because Jon was out of shampoo. And has been out of shampoo for the last week. So, he's been using my shampoo.

But, he doesn't use my conditioner too, so now they are uneven. And I'll have that problem in a few weeks of having miles of conditioner left and zero shampoo. Please tell me that I'm not the only person out there who hates this predicament.

Anyway, I went to get his shampoo and found out that Wal-Mart stopped carrying the new brand he likes. I walked up and down the shampoo aisle for about ten minutes reading every single container there until I finally faced the fact that it was gone. So, he got the old brand he used to use. And while I'm not sure that Jon will even notice the switch, I do and it just irritates me that the moment I get accustomed to one brand, they discontinue carrying it.

Actually, I heard a long time ago that you are supposed to switch up the brand of shampoo you buy every few months so your hair doesn't get used to it. I've tried this. Aside from finding out that Herbal Essences does not do my hair good (sorry HE) and that I have a relatively small portion of the shelf to pick from considering I am that person who grumbles under their breath to see a price sticker for $19.63 under a 8-ounce bottle of designer shampoo, I didn't think this switching thing worked for me. I'm a Pantene girl. I have been a Pantene girl and I will continue to be a Pantene girl. It's relatively cheap, it works and Stacy London is their current spokeswoman.

Now that I've bored you to tears with my soapbox (um. no pun intended), how many of you watched the Oscars last night? I did and this was my first time watching it beginning to end and not just catching the highlights online. I felt actually rather happy that the Best Picture was something of a surprise and I was quite excited that Sandra Bullock won Best Actress for The Blind Side, which I think was one of the best movies this year. And I had no idea how many awards were given out for things like Best Makeup and Best Sound Mixing and Best Caterer.

How about you? What did you do this weekend?
