Thank Goodness It's Over
Wow, what a day. I'm beat. I'm seriously exhausted. Who knew going without food for 17 hours could do such a number on you? Who knew all that disgustingly sugary glucola on an empty stomach could make you so ill? Who knew I would have a HUGE sugar crash when my body had expended all the energy it absorbed from that much sugar? Who knew the lady jabbing me would hurt me so badly? Oh, who knew...?
I was stuck only four times, but trust me, it was enough. I managed to get my stack of tests graded (HOORAY!) and made friends with many of the ladies in the waiting room with me. :oP
Lil and I made it home in time to do laundry and a clean the bathrooms. Then we went to our hair appointments. Isn't her hair wonderful?
She's looking forward to not having to deal with the "rat's tangles" she gets during the night and I can tell you her hair looks SO much thicker than before. :o)
B came to pick her up so I could have my hair done without worrying about a bored child. He drove her by Taco Bell (at her request) and almost had a meltdown laughing (he managed to keep it in to avoid hurting the Bit's feelings) when she asked him about the speaker. He told her what it was for and she responded, " Why is there a microphone there? I'm concerned." LOL!
Then, at home, she decided she wanted to try some of Daddy's hot sauce. She dipped her finger in, got a little bit and declared, "Dat's not hot." Then, took a larger finger full and said, "Oh, wait, it's hot if you get lots of it!" What a kiddo!
Meanwhile, my hair hadn't been cut since July, and my last color appointment was October 2008. The hairdresser we saw (oddly enough, another Melissa in my life) had had 2 1/2 hour block-out cancel on her and offered to foil my hair. I jumped at the chance. I'm a blonde again! ;o)
The cut isn't quite perfect, but it is workable. If nothing else, it's lighter and the ends are once again in decent shape. I'll be seeing Melissa again and I know we can get my hair just the way I like it. I've just been spoiled the past 15 years or so, having Jessie do my hair. :oP
1. Getting the tests graded while I waited.
2. Getting the glucose tolerance test out of the way. Whew!
3. Lily was a darling whilst having her hair cut today. Yay!
"I can has ice cream? Puh-LEEZ?"
"Okay, fine, I no can has ice cream. :sigh:"
Please excuse the quality of the photos--they were taken with the iPhone because that happened to be the camera at hand at that time.
