Notice the change in the blog? Andrew has been helping me with my blog design. I love the one he put up, but a friend has the identical one. One day I'll have something more permanent. You might see a few designs till we come up with the right one. I wish I could design my own header. I'd like to see a curly-haired girl with a laptop, an iPhone, and a caramel latte.
I always wish there were more hours in the day. I finally figured out that I wake up at 4:30 AM almost every day because I wish for it. More hours. This wasn't how I wanted to get it.
So, I've been on the computer. I'm on my second load of laundry. I'm tired. I was surprised to look out and see about a half-inch of snow on the ground, and falling. It's changed over to freezing rain, or sleet. I'm glad I'm not scheduled to be at work till 11:00. Will people cancel their appointments? Will the roads be okay? I guess I'll find out. We have a skeleton crew at work this week. I didn't realize how many stylists were taking time off. It's been fine being there. I need to work.
I did a fun make-over on Tuesday. A client brought in her college-freshman sister, Sarah (I made the name up so I could call her something) for a haircut. Sarah had very thick long hair that she wanted cut to below chin length. She was looking for something edgy, shaggy, stylish. Why didn't I take pictures? It took an hour to cut and the transformation was amazing. She looked like a very cool college kid. Her boyfriend was with her and while my client was being shampooed he asked if anyone could do his hair. I hooked him up with Joyce, who gave him a very cool faux-hawk. As I was finishing Sarah and he was walking towards us to show off his new do, she quietly said, "He stole my haircut thunder". After a moment's thought I said, "you're right". He did. She was no longer the star. What a phrase, 'haircut thunder'. I immediately thought, I have to blog about that. They made the cutest couple with their new look. They both had haircut thunder.
I'm staying in tonight. Rob is coming over, weather permitting. My plan is to grill flat-iron steaks and garlic potato wedges, and make fresh green beans. That is if my grill isn't frozen. I have some new DVD's. A nice, quiet New Year's Eve.
I wonder what 2010 holds in store for us? I'm looking forward to finding out.
Happy New Year, friends!
