New Clothes Plus New Cut Equals Happy Me
Just a smile.
My dark circles testify to the fact that I haven't been sleeping well in weeks. Not much can be done about that. Still I don't think I look all that bad for a gal that is almost 42 years old.
Yesterday I spent over 5 hours at the beauty salon getting my hair colored, cut, and straightened. I'm not about to divulge the price but lets just say that it was costly and I'm not going to be doing it too often, even if I do love the result.
I think the main reason I went to the salon this time is because my tendonitis is too painful for me to hold a coloring brush for long enough to do my own hair. I admit that I need help getting my hair styled and colored now. For years I've been doing it myself and when I feel up to it I might just do it again.
Over the weekend I went out and purchased several clothing items. I refused to pay full price of course. So I hit the clearance rack and to my joy they were offering an additional 50% off of the already marked down price. I managed to snag a pair of Pendelton wool dress slack for only $15.75. They were originally marked at the Exchange price of $126.00. The only thing wrong with them was that they were missing half of the hook part. Easy fix for me since I sew.
I also purchased a new pair of sneakers. Its been three years since I had a new pair. Its about time I broke down and bought a pair of sneakers. I purchased several blouses, some for dress wear and others for pairing with jeans. I saved about $300 according to what I added up on the tags. Just another reason to smile since I only paid about $80 for all the garments.
I'm up early this morning doing a few loads of laundry before I head over to the RE's office for my transvaginal ultrasound. Need I say that I'm not looking forward to this appointment. I think it might be the only reason I won't be smiling today.
