The phone rang just a bit ago. I didn't recognize the caller ID. It was the salon owner. My letter had been buried in a stack of mail (I'm sure everyone gets inundated at the holidays) and the salon owner only read it last night. She said it... Read more

Well it's been three weeks now and I haven't received a phone call or letter from the salon owner regarding the incident at the reception desk (see previous blog about Fat Prejudice). I'm disappointed. The salon owner is a former neighbor and... Read more

I've been in the "rest area" on my journey over the past few weeks. Today I put my turn signal on and merged back into the slow lane and started making some progress. It's hard coming off the "food high" of the holidays. I resisted the church... Read more
What's going to be different about 2013?
Sunday, December 30, 2012      20 comments

Year after year I read many well-intentioned blogs about New Year's Resolutions and goals. I've even reread some of my OWN. Too often many if not MOST of these are unrealized. One of my team challenges is to blog about my goals for 2013. It ... Read more

I did write the salon owner. I began with the good (I believe any criticism should be accompanied by praise). I told her how long we have been patronizing her salon and how much we like and appreciate our stylist. I even told her how I convi... Read more
