Mondays are not the best day

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Mondays are not the best day to go looking for a place to give you an emergency hair cut! I say emergency, because I just could not stand it anymore! The pony tail thing was getting old!

Apparently most salons are closed on a Monday, I guess because they work Sat and Sundays.

But I NEEEEDED a hair cut or I was going to attempt to do it myself, which may or may not have let to disaster!

I drove up the street in search for a salon that was open, with only 90 minutes to spare before I got the kids from school....and since I had the car...I needed to use the opportunity while I could!

There it was, a beacon of hope beckoning me to come in! A little tiny neon "OPEN" sign and I pulled right in.

The lady said she could take me if I waited about 15 minutes ( it ended up being more like 25 minutes, but I did not complain since I was a "walk in" )

I was just so happy to find a place that was OPEN!

She did a great job, washed and cut it and dried it all with enough time for me to get to the school and pick up the kids!


AS for the scale, well, I feel like a blow fish, bloat, bloat , bloat!

PMS and bad eating! WOW!

BUT I know what to do to get it all off...I just am not in that mind frame right now! Schedule is crazy and meetings and deadlines and last week of school stuff! It is hard for me to just take the pressure off myself for a few days, but if I don't - I'll go insane!

Today I have a "Annual Staff review" - Don't you love those!!! It is my first one, so I will admit, I am a little nerv...OK a lot nervous!

AS for mommy duck, she is fine! Still sittin' on those eggs! I think we have about 8 - 10 days left and then they will hatch!
Can't wait!

    Love the hair - I got to the same point not long ago but wasn't as lucky, had to wait a few days. Oh well, it was worth it. Glad to hear about the duck. Good luck with better eating and feeling better too.

    Great haircut. I can relate. I wait until I absolutely cannot stand seeing my hair in the mirror. Then I have to pray I can get in somewhere without an appointment.

    Great haircut! I'm still debating about mine.. way overdue and looking straggly, driving me nuts but no car :(
    Sorry about the PMS - take it one meal at a time, good food will alleviate the symptoms and your mind will follow, think green veggies!

    Great haircut!
    I had very similar experience with the hair. Always wait too long, get desperate and get ready to do it myself...asked my neighbor who cuts her childs hair and he always look good, if she could help me. She did a nice job and I walked home feeling like a movie-star with my new style, freshly washed and blow-dried hair!
    I took her and her son out to dinner as a thank you.
    I'm going back to her next time!
    Hope you are having a nice Tuesday,

    I love your new hair cut.....for me....I cannot live without my pony tail esp in the summer. I go nuts with my hair around my face. I leave it down for going out or special events, but mostly is either in a pony or a french plait.
    As for the staff review....haven't been in one of those for 22 yrs LOL. I am now my own boss...the glorified HOUSE WIFE, but the sacrifices are worth it. I love my job. emoticon
