It is finally my Friday! It feels like it has taken forever to get here. No, I don’t have anything major planned but this week has felt like the looooooooong week ever. I’m just happy that I get three two days without being annoyed. at work. (Sorry, just a little internal venting humor)
Tomorrow I was supposed to go to Charlotte to get my hair done. Yes, I do drive an hour away for that. Anyway, I rescheduled my appointment for the 20th when we’ll be there for a wedding. I haven’t been in a month and I normally go every 2 weeks. My schedule was crazier than usual, due to the Olympics. I was working really late nights and didn’t want to get up at 6am to drive to Charlotte. Yes my appointments are usually at 8am so I leave around 6am normally after I’ve gotten home at midnight! The appointments are early b/c they are on my days off and that way I can be home when Raf gets home. or have the rest of the day to do what I want.
During my month break, I tried out a local stylist. I like her a lot. She uses the same products as my guy, she can style your hair(some can’t, go figure) and I don’t have to pay for parking. Her prices are about the same but it doesn’t take a tank of gas to get there. A major plus. I’ve estimated that every month I spend about $120 in gas and parking. That’s not including actually getting my hair done! Crazy I know!! I fill up before I go. I don’t use the entire tank there and back, but I normally need fill up within a day and a half. Without that drive, I can 4 to 5 days on a tank of gas. So, I’m going to cut my visits to once a month. I will inform my stylist of this on the 20th. He will still do the major stuff, relaxers, cuts and color, but the local girl will do maintenance in between. I can’t just quit cold turkey. This solution will have to work for now.
