Another busy week of hot weather, travel, and a spot of poision ivy on the back of my knee that would drive me crazy if I wasn’t already crazy in the first place.
First up in this post: the big news. I have chopped off 3/4 of my hair. My head is much cooler now and I even had enough grown to squeek out a donation for Locks of Love. So here I am fresh from the hairdresser on Tuesday afternoon:
Sadly, my lack of hair styling skills and motivation have prevented my hair from looking so sleek, so tamed, so ‘I just had a hairdresser do my hair,’ ever since. But I have saved at least 10 cents in shampoo in the last two days, plus I have dropped a minute of showering time.
Such efficiency! Who cares that my hair now curls outward making my head look like it has wings!
Here is a card to celebrate with:
And my final piece of news is that I stopped by Borders today and took advantage of the going-out-of-business sale to get Clyde a book he’s wanted for the last couple of months. Although I’m happy to get his book at 20% off, it felt a little melancholy walking around the store.
Everything in the store was a mess, the coffee shop was all dark and corded off. The employees couldn’t look anything up and most of the customers were wandering around with about the same look on their faces – saddened disbelief tempered by the elation of cheap books. At the checkout counter they didn’t ask for my rewards card. Sigh.
I’m reminded of something someone once said to me – ‘There, but by the grace of my creditors, go I.’
Hmmm….how about a card to get over that sadness?
Hope everyone is enjoying a good book and some salt water this summer. Cheers!
