Okay, so I know I prepared you for my absence, but I just had to share this.
Yesterday I got my hair cut. Getting my hair cut terrifies me because my track record with stylists sucks ass. But, I was in need of a change, and I'd been mooning over this one style for a while now, so I decided to go with it. It's not that I didn't like my old style, but I just felt a change was in order. I had the old style, or variations of it, for a great many of YEARS. And boy am I glad I changed it up!
Check it out...
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I love this cut. And I think I lucked out big time today. You see, I was scheduled to get my hair cut by Lynn, who I had gone to last time (see top pic) and while she was good, she lacked personality, and she didn't really listen to me and I didn't quite get the cut that I wanted. But whatev', I've had worse. Anyway, Lynn had an emergency and I was rescheduled with Kelly, who just happens to be the co-owner of the salon I go to (which I LOVE, but more on that in a bit). Kelly rocks! She was so helpful and so honest and informed me that if she didn't think the cut I wanted was going to work, she would tell me, but she was positive it would be great. And she was right! (Of course, she also informed me that it wouldn't do anything to convince people that I am, in fact, 30. I think she's right on that one too.)
So, back to how much I love this gem of a salon I found... I LOVE THEM! They are all super nice and friendly and they make you feel so welcome. And today, they were shipping off their hair clippings to help clean up the oil in the Gulf. I love them even more now. But, here's a dilemma... I'm leaving the area in two weeks! Just when I found the greatest salon ever...
Moving can be a pain in the ass, but for the most part, I love the excitement of it. I love unpacking and deciding where to put everything. I love starting over. What I don't love is having to start all over in discovering the good people to go to for my... personal needs. You know, like a gyno, and a general physician, and a hair stylist, and a car mechanic, and a good grocery store? These are all very important things.
I have found the best of all these things... in completely different zip codes. If I were to map out where my fave places to go for these needs were, it would look like this:
I think maybe, just maybe, I can somehow work it out where I can travel up I87 and hit all my necessary appointments in the span of two or three days... I bet it can be done. And in regards to grocery shopping. Eh. I hate doing that shit anyway.
