Yesterday was a nice day. It was my sister's birthday and we went to see my niece's new baby, Dylan. He's beautiful (though I may be biased). We cooed over him for a couple of hours then went shopping and had the (diet approved) lunch I packed. As much as I hate them, I broke down and bought a pair of flip flops. As often as I go for pedicures, it seemed prudent to have them on hand for when my toes aren't quite dry.
As mentioned, I got my haircut yesterday, and after styling it this morning, I have the urge to go back and kick the girl who cut it in the shins. I knew the bangs were way too short when I left, and that she'd taken off closer to two inches than one. I was not happy, but my hair grows pretty fast. The thing I didn't notice yesterday was that I have a random layer in my hair on ONE side that was not there before! What the heck? For today, a barrette is is my quick fix.
I also woke up this morning feeling gross. I have a scratchy throat and a runny nose. How many times can I get this cold? I swear that the school should implement a rule that kids the come to school with a cough must wear surgical masks. We had two girls in class coughing and hacking all of last week, and neither one of them could remember to cover their mouths. I predict that I am not going to be the only person with a cold at school today. *Medicates and packs tissues and sanitizer*
Other than that, life is good. The diet is going okay--it's not very exciting, but I don't want food to remain the focus of my life in the future. Especially in my family, we use food to reward, comfort, entertain, etc. I need to find other outlets and ways to spend my time than going to restaurants when I want a night out. I could probably easily buy a new pair of shoes or something else a month if I cut out my eating out budget. I have a feeling I'll be seeing a lot of movies in the future, too, to avoid the restaurant trap.
Anyway, I didn't mean to ramble on. I need to pack my kids' lunches and get out the door for work. I hope everyone else is having a great day!
