New Hair

I'm not sure what possessed me to think that at this stage of my life growing my hair out was a good idea. It wasn't! I tried for three years to see what I was going to end up with and after three years, it was pretty pitiful, so I braved a visit to Sara's hairdresser and had it all chopped off. I was kinda going for the Erin look, but of course, Erin has more hair than I do so it's not going to look just like hers darn it all. Anyway, I was pretty happy with my new do and the highlights the girl put in.... happy until I tried to do it myself tonight. SIGH I'm just NOT a hairdresser.... that's all. I was about to go get the scissors and start whacking at it some more, but I tried a couple more things and I think I can fix it okay now.

It's still gonna take some practice and I think I need a different kind of clay to put in it, but it's starting to take shape. It'll be okay I'm sure. Can't be a whole lot worse than what I had and it's sure a lot more comfortable. And if trying to make it look half way decent wasn't quite enough, I went to see my mother today and of course, she had some let's say "less than complimentary" things about my hair. Mrs. Nasty was at it again. She finally figured out she needed to shut up when I got up and grabbed my purse and started out the door. She thinks I'm overly sensitive and I, of course, think she's just plain old mean spirited. No winning this one.

Oh and if things weren't quite stressful enough today, the dang cable went out for about three hours. That of course, meant no TV, no phone, and no computer since I was so clever and put Cox Cable in charge of all three of those items. I'm beginning to think that was a huge mistake. Everyone kept telling me Cox was so much faster than the AT&T high speed internet I've had for the past five years. I haven't noticed any difference at all and I'm back to thinking that my original idea was right. The reason I chose AT&T in the first place was because my cable goes out sometimes.... my phone never does. Well this is a perfect example of that.

It's back to work tomorrow. We're getting things rolling on the K-9 Trials so I should have plenty to keep me busy. This new coming in early on Monday mornings (7:00 a.m.) is for the birds though. I like my late schedule much better, but Payroll has to have everything submitted by 8:00 now so I go in. You know me... I'm nothing if not obedient. LOL
