Dreaming... Literally.

I had this crazy dream last night that I can't stop thinking about. It's been a while since I had a dream I could remember. And lately, the ones I do remember have been lame at best (the kind where you go to work and wakeup thankful that you're not really at work). This dream was like a horror movie. And I like horror movies a lot.

I'll just say the gist of it. The main character (i was seeing her point of view in the dream) was this young girl who went away to college and she is returning home to see her family. Her family consists of her father, who was very distraught since the mother had died recently, and a younger sister who is still in high school. when, the girl left for school the house and property was in disrepair due to the fathers depression. Upon returning she sees he has a new vibrancy and the house is completely taken care of better than ever, except in the backyard there are all of these small shrine-like buildings made of sticks. The father is just constantly working on the fixing up the property and the girl realizes that whole town is into this new home improvement craze.

The sisters figure that something weird is up after a while and one day the older girl goes into this trance state and starts working on the yard as well. She starts lifting objects that are far too heavy for her to carry and ends up hurting her back and legs. She puts it together that the people in this town are somehow being possessed and working themselves to death in preparation for something major. More evil things happen and there are animals walking around with out skin, they look like walking meat. So disturbing. It is revealed that the younger sister is a virgin and is pregnant with the Antichrist. The town is preparing for the arrival.

I didn't get to finish the dream, unfortunately. Pretty crazy though. It probably just means i am stressed out about providing for my daughter or something. It would make a good movie though.

No more shampoo?

There is nothing wrong with my hair in particular (besides the fact that it's really long because I can't decide what I want to do with it).  I just think it gets a little dull and oily sometimes and I do not like to wash it everyday.  I wash it every other day. 

Anyway, I have been trying to live a little more natural lately.  Eating better.  Trying to improve myself.  So I've decided to try an experiment in using natural household items on my hair.  I found an article on using baking soda and apple cider vinegar on your hair.  Yes, the apple cider vinegar smells a bit nasty.  I've used it once thus far and my hair was definitely clean, but I don't like the smell of the vinegar.  If anyone has any suggestions on that, I'd be open to it.  I was thinking maybe I could mix a strong smelling oil in it or something like that. 

The portions were 1 tbsp baking sode to one cup of water and rinse it out.  And then 1-2 tbsp apple cider to 1 cup of water and rinse, but use this sparingly if you have oily hair.  I'm going to give it a shot for a while and see how my hair does.
