Much better today

Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Today was so much better than yesterday!! I have a presentation to do at my daughter's school on Thursday (Career day) and I went to my company's HR department for ideas and assistance. They gave me soooo many cool things to pass around and present and stuff. I'm actually excited about giving this talk now!

On top of that, I was given a new project at work (finally!) AND I got a compliment from my boss...sort of. Someone else told me what he said. He didn't actually tell me (that isn't going to happen), but knowing he said it to the powers-that-be made me feel better.

Time to figure out what I'm going to say on Thursday. Wish me luck! I'll let you all know how it goes!

Today sucked

Monday, February 16, 2009

The alarm sounded at the normal time. I was still tired.

Projects at work weren't set up correctly, some my fault, some not, but I got to take the heat for all of them.

Another project I wanted was given to someone else.

Got off work early to take the kids to the DDS. Son was disrespectful and told me he hated me.

Skipped the trip to the store to find a jacket/skin for my I-Pod (not taking a disrespectful kid on a shopping trip).

Came back from the gym and had to finish up laundry before I could eat dinner (hubby is sick and needed to get to bed early, laundry was in our room).

Finally, kids and DH are in bed and it's MY time! It'll be better tomorrow.

Sorry for the blahs. Some days are just that way.


It turned out GREAT!

Today was the day! My daughter got her hair cut and colored. We got there at 8:30, right on time. They took us back a little bit late, but not too bad. We didn't walk out of there until noon! I was so tired and all I did was sit there and read!! Of course, I finished one book and started another, but I was still tired. The good news is she LOVES it! It was to the middle of her back and a darker brown. There were some old blond highlights too. The red is a very dark red, except where the blond highlights were. There it is a lighter red, not quite pink. It looks very cute.

Trying to get a picture to post. We'll see if it comes through...

Daughter's Hair

Friday, February 13, 2009

Getting up very early tomorrow to go to the gym before I take my daughter to get her hair cut and colored. She is 12 and VERY excited. She originally wanted to dye her hair blonde on top and purple underneath. I explained to her that her father would kill us both (not literally, but don't want to deal with it!) if we did that. So, now it'll be red.

I can tell she is excited because she keeps asking questions about tomorrow. Kid: Mom, what color of red will it be?
Me: We'll look at their choices when we get there and pick one that you like.
Kid: Will it be that shade? (pointing at a bright red vase)
Me: No dear. We will pick a color you like.
Kid: Will it be that color? (pointing at a glass apple that's semi-orange)
Me: No dear. We will still pick a color you like. It won't be bright red, I promise.
Kid: Okay.

And the next conversation is all about how the cut will look. Then we go back to color. I'm ready for this to be done so she'll have all of her answers!

My new I-Pod ROCKS!!

Thursday, February 12, 2009

I wasn't planning to add any music to my I-Pod until this weekend. The worry was that if I started, I wouldn't stop playing with it and would end up staying up way too late.

I couldn't help myself. I loaded 10 songs...and it was awesome!! I listened to music during my workout for the first time in months!!! My 45-minute work out felt like half of that. I did decide that some of the songs would be better for a running workout vs. an elliptical workout and I wrote that down. Now all I have to do is figure out how to make different playlists and rearrange the songs already loaded.

Thanks to all who commented on yesterday's blog. I am still pretty excited and love to share!!

    I love to take mine when I am walking; it makes it seem easy to increase my time when listening to the music makes the time go by so fast.
