Today I finally took Myrna up on her offer to watch the kids for me for a while, which she offered to do as a birthday present for me way back in April. Kind of glad I waited and took her up on it when Russ is out of town.
I dropped the kids off around noon and then I went to lunch at Rodizio grill with Mom, Aunt Evelyn, Micki and Mikinley. (Thanks for that, Mom.) After eating way too much at lunch and still managing to get a caramel apple, I got my hair cut. I've been wanting to get it cut for a long time now. Having really thick hair and having that hair long means longer time spent washing said hair. Especially when it is somewhat water-repellant in the first place. Besides, getting it cut shorter is instant weight loss. Probably not more than three pounds, but that's still three pounds lighter. So yes, my hair is back to being the same as Stacey's (which you can see if you go to her blog and look at the pictures she has in one of her postings). But since we live in different states, we won't confuse anyone.
After getting the hair cut, Mom and I did a little bit of shopping before heading back. And man, traffic was bad. Took us at least 30 minutes, if not 45, to go what should have taken us 15.
So thanks again, Myrna! The kids had fun and I had fun. Just wish I had actually been hungry when I made dinner for the kids.
Here's a picture of me with my new haircut. I really hate pictures of me. Didn't notice until now that I forgot to set the camera to take the closer picture so I'm out of focus. Not that it's a bad thing....
P.S. I finished the advance copy of the Terry Brooks book (The Elves of Cintra). Now I get to wait a year for the next book to come out so I can find out what happens.
