That pretty much sums up my life right now!
I had my hair done yesterday by my favorite hair dresser here.
There is always drama with him, but he gives a good cut.
The problem yesterday was me...not the time (for a change!)
Remember last time it took 6 hours? Well it only took 3 yesterday...and really, the first 1/2 hour we were chatting the whole time!
So, the debate yesterday was do I go for a complete change and cut it short. I mean SHORT!
Well, I chickened out...but he offered me a free cut if I decide to do it before I leave in a couple of weeks. I keep looking at photos of Michelle Williams new hair do...you can google it, and I think I'm going to do it!
See, my philosophy on hair is that it grows! When I was a dancer I couldn't cut my hair. I had to have it long...and well, ever since I stopped dancing 12 years ago,
I have always changed my hair.
I have had it short before and liked it....
I have had it long and liked it...
right now, I have had my hair long for quite some time. I know it looks pretty...
everyone tells me how pretty it is.
For me, it is not about pretty. Pretty comes from the inside, and I think I still "look pretty" with my hair short or long.
What I want is a change I think. I'm tired of blow drying it the same way every time.
I know short hair has a lot of upkeep, but I am ok with that.
Anyways, the decision isn't made yet...but it is certainly looking like a short do is in store for me! (and if I do it, I will take a picture and break my rule of no personal photos on my blog!)
My friend Carol asked about packing...
yes, it has started. I technically do not have to pack anything except my personal belongings.
I do need to start putting Post-it notes on where items are going though. Most of our belongings will come with us, but quite a bit of the big pieces are going to storage in the US.
The air shipment was packed on Monday. No food allowed, not even cat/dog food.
Uh-oh...looks like it will be some home cooked meals for the animals too!
It went smoothly though, and it should be on it's way to meet us there!
The sea shipment starts next week. Wish me luck with separating what goes where and making the gentleman understand all of it!
and finally...we found out which townhouse will be ours!
This was much anticipated news because there was a small debate going on.
(I will spare you the details!)
We are having a townhouse that overlooks the Ural River. I am very excited about this because it allows us some more privacy in our back yard. Plus, it is at the far end of the camp...which means I will feel like I can "get away" at least a little bit. Also, it will allow me some great pictures (I hope!) of the Ural River, especially once it freezes over completely!
Things are going well!!!
