The Crazy Cycle of Hair Ties

I think I've been on a break long enough. I just realized I haven't posted anything here in over a month. That's the longest break I've ever taken. I'm sure I've lost all of my readers (all 2 of them that aren't actually related to me or a great friend) If not say Hi and let me know you are still here.

Nothing profound to post about today just an observation I made a few weeks ago. I have a lot of hair things and they all end up on my bedside table. Often through the day, I pull my hair back or at least part of it to get it out of my face. Then I go to bed and take it out and put it on my table. The next day, I go looking for another hair thing and usually get a new one out. I also have 2 little nieces that contribute to the hair band clutter on my table. Well I cleaned my table and found:

4 headbands
18 bands (elastics)
10 little girl bands
5 cloth bands
7 barrettes
3 bobby pins
4 clips

I was going to take a picture but one of the girls got into them all and scattered them on the kitchen table so I just scooped them all up and deposited them in the bathroom cabinet.

I looked today and there is a new pile growing on my bedside table. It's going to be a never ending cycle of cleaning up hair ties.
