15 December 2006

I went shopping with Emily last night for an outfit for tomorrow night's party. It was so hard to find something we could both agree on. I was determined not to argue, and not to give in to anything I didn't approve of. After much trying on, and lots of attempts to argue on her part, we came up with a great outfit. Just right for a 13 year old. Trendy and cute. I'll post pictures later. I'm not much of a shopper. If I'm in the mood and find clothes that I like, I'll buy everything, and then not go into a store for months. I'd love to have someone shop for me. I like to look good, but I don't think I'm good at putting outfits together. We had talked about going to uniforms in my salon, and tried out the all black look, but no decision was ever made. I decided that all black would be my own uniform. I have about 5 identical black turtleneck tops and 3 or 4 pairs of black slacks. I'll wear a top with color occasionally. I'm very happy with the look and with not having to make a decision.

Work has been very busy. For some people, the only time they can sit and relax during this season is while they're at the hair salon. I try and make it nice for them. It's a fun time of year for me because I get so many presents from my generous clients. And, there's lots to talk about too.

I missed celebrating Hanukkah with my family tonight. It's the first time I've ever missed it. Friday is a late night for me and I couldn't change my schedule. We've had it at my brother's the last few years and we always have potato latkes and steak fajitas. How's that for a combination? We're a rowdy group, and everyone has a great time. I was really looking forward to taking a picture of my sister Lisa. I took a picture of her last year frying the latkes. Since then, she's lost a great deal of weight and I wanted to take a new picture of the new Lisa doing the frying. I asked for someone to do that for me.

I'm only working two hours tomorrow..from 8AM till 10:00. Then Starbucks, (I'll be looking at those stirrers for a tree topper) then home to cook and clean. It will be a busy day culminating in a (hopefully) wonderful party.
