This and that

Another day on the go. What's new? I brought Emily and Kendall to school, then hung out at Starbucks with my laptop till it was time to watch my co-worker get the Brazilian Keratin Treatment done to her hair. It's supposed to make your hair straighter and frizz-free. It wears out in about 4 months if you don't wash your hair often. Julie was the stylist, Pattie the 'client', and me: the peanut gallery. It took 2 1/2 hours to do it. Pattie can't wash her hair for 4 days, so we have to wait to see the results. It's a really expensive service ($300-$400 plus take-home products), but people call the salon asking for it, and I wanted to know how to do it, just in case.

We went out to lunch afterward to a new and fancy Mexican restaurant and martini bar. An interesting place, but I won't go back. Our bill came to $50, and we didn't get much food. Tiny portions. The decor was beautiful, though. I wonder if they'll stay in business. Our waitress comped us half shots of tequila in beautiful glasses that we got to keep. One of the glasses had a spicy drink to sip after drinking the tequila. Very different.

Emily's team had a home game today. Emily sat out, injured. She took a ball to her shin right between her shoe and shin guard at Friday's game. It's been swollen, and it hurts, but it's getting better. It was a crisp fall day to be sitting out watching a game. They didn't win, but it was a good game anyway.

Dinner tonight was a frozen Trader Joe's meal and kettle corn. I'm stuffed. Uncomfortably so.

I'm rambling, right? I'll stop.

Hope your Monday was a good one.

The word 'Milagro' on the glasses means 'miracle'. Is that the name of the restaurant?
Last night I made curried chicken and wild rice. Tonight it's chicken marsala and couscous.
Wow -- that's $100.00 a month! Thought for a minute it was like a Brazilian bikini wax!! OY!
