Herman at work. He was surprised that I wanted to go short! I showed him the magazine pictures and told him that you chose Dimensional Brunette Number One for me...but I was still a little nervous. So Herman made the wise Solomon-like decision to do something halfway in between both pictures. He told me that if I still wanted the really short spikeys, we could do it next time when I was feeling more confident, but my hair is way wavier than hers, so it would require a lot more maintenance to get that look with the spikes. Ugh...maintenance...a bad thing. I opted for easy. (See why I love him? He knows I'm lazy, but he loves me anyway.)
I TOTALLY LOOOVE IT!!! I feel so young and perky! (Here I am at Macy's afterwards, trying to sneakily take my picture in the ladies' clothing section.) Wow...I can't believe how much cooler my neck is! Remember when you got your braces off and your teeth felt so smooth and funny that you couldn't stop smiling because your teeth felt so slippery and it felt so wonderful? No? Well, I remember. And that's how my neck felt today! Every breeze that ruffled past my neck made me happy. Now all I need is a hot flash to really give it a test drive!
After shopping, I had some more papers to drop by THE ACCOUNTANT'S. You remember her from my tax trauma a couple of days ago, huh? Well, here she is, looking over my fabric and yarn expenses. She's still smiling! Which means only ONE thing!!!
I didn't buy enough yarn last year!! So this is how I topped my day off:
I had to go back to get me some more of that yummy Cascade 220. I showed amazing self-control the other day, buying only the orange and yellow, but that was before my accountant didn't gasp out loud at my yarn totals. So I figure I can make up for it this year! Whoo hoo! 2008 is lookin' good! I'll see if I can make her gasp next year. A girl's gotta have goals, you know.
Back to quilting tomorrow, I promise.
