Weekend Update with Kiersten

Posted by Expert Gadget Reviewer on Friday, 1 October 2010

I'm literally writing this with one of those plastic caps over my head that you use when you highlight your own hair. So if I don't burn off all of my luscious dark-rooted/blond/light brown hair, it's going to be a fab weekend. ( Remember this post about my in-salon hair color disaster?)

It's been awhile since I've written on this here blog but I have a million good reasons. Life has been all over the place lately. Good with the bad. Highs with the lows. To start, my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. My dad beat a rare form of cancer near his eye more than ten years ago and my grandmother is battling lung cancer now so I feel like it's targeting the Parsons clan. I know it's not and I know she'll battle through but it really stinks being so far away from her.

Scott is closer to a job which is fantastic!! Fingers, toes, and well, everything, crossed. I've been hunkered down in Shark Tank prep mode as well as everyday Mod Mom business stuff. (I'll know soon if I made the final list but there's a lot I won't be able to share per my contract.) Expansion plans are moving in the right direction and I'm feeling like all the hard work will pay off sooner than later. A very large furniture retailer contacted me about selling my products and I'm busy filling out their paperwork. There are about twelve different roles they wanted contact names for and I was almost laughing because here's how it went down: Customer Service: Kiersten. Sales Rep: Kiersten. Logistics: Kiersten. Accounting: Kiersten. Manufacturing: Kiersten. Marketing/PR: Kiersten. It's a good thing I have all these people working for me. Thinking I'll give each one a raise.

Signing off for now because my hair will soon fall out if I don't get this cap off.

UPDATE: Only a few hairs came out. Operation blond highlights was a success!!
