Ah yes, how I love my Fridays.
A glass of wine in hand...dinner cooking...classical music playing...and all this insane pollen making me oh-so tired.
It's all good.
I'm feeling a little less blonde than I'd prefer these days. I'm so not digging the new ombre hair style - it's like, when your roots are growing out so the dark is heavy and the light is at the ends. It's so not a good look. I'm sort of the reverse; lighter on top, darker underneath. While cool, I still would prefer to be brighter.
On the upside, my hair is definitely long again. It's like all of a sudden...it grew! By my one year anniversary of cutting it short, it should be pretty much where it was when I cut it. Unbelievable, right? That's what I'm thinking....
I really and truly can't be growing old. I just can't be. Today at Starbucks, I ran into a married couple who are friends of mine from high school; for the 5 minutes we spent catching up, it was like we were right back in school. I mean, I see them from time to time anyway - but today for some reason, it was like we were kids again. And even though we were talking about our kids, and how it's fun being a parent and challenging at the same time -- it still felt like we were the kids. It made me feel very nostalgic for when I was young, and truly didn't realize just how much life I had ahead of me. It's funny how when you're "in the moment" of life, you really just don't know all that you think you do. Anyway, it was a good visit....It was good to see them, and I look forward to the next time I run into them again.
I can tell you what I am not looking forward to -- all this flipping rain we're supposed to get. What is up with cold and rainy? Ugh, so not what I was hoping for. But you know, with the ying is the yang - and the upside to all this lousy weather is that tomorrow I can look forward to just hanging in and catching up on laundry. (I know, crazy to be happy about catching up on laundry, but truly - there will be nothing to distract me from it which is a good thing!) Pajamas, a good cup of coffee and warm, cozy smells of laundry. Little people running about and hopefully a day of relaxation. Best of all, all of this horrible pollen will hopefully be washed away!!
And then maybe....this girl will be able to wear mascara once again.....
