I have 7 hours I need to use before the end of the year. I have already included the extra long lunch I took yesterday, the extra long morning I took this morning and the day off I am taking on Thursday.
I am sensing 1/2 days coming my way tomorrow and leaving a tad bit early today.
The dilemma, you ask? I am covering for about 4 people.
Or Merry, which ever. ;) Somebody was good this year because my boo and family took care of me. 2010 has been quite.a.year.!
Hope everyone had a fabulous Christmas. Pictures to follow whenever I stop being lazy. Also, next year I am declaring this blog having a ‘Holy Griswold’s’ section to my randomness. It is ashame I haven’t shared some of the ridiculousness this year. You heard it first here.
(oh and it snowed! in ATLANTA!) - somebody heard my silent wishes to have a little New England even when I wasn’t there. Thanks for that.
When I moved to Boston, it took me a little over 6 months to find the ‘right’ hairdresser. One that I felt comfortable with, that I can afford (especially since I was right out of college and making nothing).
Well, I have been in Atlanta for almost 2 years now. I have been to a few places. The first place was top notch, but located in the heart of Mid Town, which means beaucoup bucks. A sacrifice for good hair? I thought so, but dropping nearly two hundo* is not what I call ideal - especially since it’s an every 6 to 8 week necessity.
*Note: I get partials and a haircut…I may be crazy, but not that crazy.
Then last year, I went to a Christmas party and met this girl who was in the industry. She admired my hair and said that she’d love to take me in as a client. She promised a good price. I was hesitant, but shoot, the price she offered I was pumped about. So I went and it turned out to be great. So I was FINALLY set in this city. Well, I go to get my hair did a while back and she was GONE. I texted her and asked her ‘What’s the deal-io?” She told me she left and went to men’s salon.
So now my hair is in DESPERATE need for some restoration and I am either back to spending a hot dollar or taking a risk on the same place that girl left and hoping for a good price and a good hair do.
I am cleaning up my boo’s computer from college and listening to Christmas music, while Bubbles sleeps next to me…and I am getting serious nostalgia and flashbacks to college. What I can’t get over is the fact that this guy…this guy who I met on the first day of college is going to my hubby in less than a year.
HOW WEIRD IS THAT?
To answer your question…. SOOOOooooo WEIRD.
I realize this is probably a strange atmosphere (and time) to be reflecting on this, but I just had a couple of flashbacks - to the feeling of a new school, a new place…a new feeling towards this guy who I’d only known for tops 24 hours.
AND NOW LOOK AT US! Eight (8) years in December May? Hiatus. You understand. But regardless…that’s a childhood worth of time.
Now that we have his computer up and running, it means full on access to old skool pictures of us. Please reflect on HOW YOUNG WE WERE:
So young. So cute. so skinny.
Anywho….that’s my walk down memory lane. Do keep in mind - SERIOUS pictures from college will be coming in the next few weeks. I feel like I just cracked open Pandora’s Box. (that’s what he said?)
