I need my coffee!

Have you ever had one of those days?  It's not even 10:30am here and it's already been a day. 

I went to the dr, I've been having problems with my knee since February (it's now June people!). I was told I had runners knee <again> and needed physical therapy. Well, 1 & 1/2 months later and $600 poorer it's not better. Now I have to have an MRI to see if I need surgery or need to learn to live with it. 

That's not the best part though.....after leaving the drs and picking up more paint for props for my sons party next month I stopped at Dunkin Donuts. I wanted, no I needed an iced coffee. I went through the drive thru. I ordered. The staff gave me a straw and I gave him my money. Then I drove off....

It wasn't until I was half way home before I went to put the straw in the coffee only to realize there was no coffee...wow, talk about embarrassing having to turn around and go back.  Ok so that wasn't the hard part, it was having to tell them what I had done, listen to them call out asking the drive thru person if it had happened and hearing him confirm. 

What can't you do without?

I wrote a post about my upcoming hair cut...first I have to say that usually when I ask a stylist to give me a different look she will trim my hair 2-3 inches and refresh my layers. Don't get me wrong...I like the style, I think it looks good on me, I'll probably go back to it too. However, when I say I want something different, I actually mean it. Today my stylist listened and gave me something different.  I like it too, but that is t what I wanted to write about today. 

Today I want to talk about hairstylists making me self conscious. I'm sure it's about making more money and not a statement on my face, but as she was washing my hair she asked if I wanted her to wax my eyebrows. Well I immediately became self conscious.  In my mind "why?  Is it that obvious they aren't professionally maintained?  Are they bolder than Brooke Shields?  Have I been in denial all my life?  Do I have my families (fathers side) wings for eyebrows?  She wouldn't ask if it wasn't necessary right?"    So I said "ok"

Then she asked about my lip. "Ok". So, I got my eyebrows AND upper lip waxed. I felt like Sasquatch. (But I don't anymore!)

Before...and after...

Hair cut

I don't know about you, but when I go for a hair cut, I assume the person with the scissors has more knowledge than I do about hair.  I give her the pertinent information.....I need an easy, no fuss hair cut...otherwise, just do what you think looks best. I have yet to be disappointed. 

I was telling my coworker this evening that I was going to get my hair cut.  When she asked what it would look like I told her I had no idea and explained my reasoning.  (This is where it gets funny.....well, I think it was funny). She then went into some detail about her own hair cutting experiences, which are interesting to say the least.  She finished by telling me that her husband (she is almost 70 and her husband is 85) receives a magazine in the mail.  She is sure it is a "gay magazine" and doesn't know why they receive it, but she doesn't mind because it has some of the best articles.  She then went on to explain that one article was about the current men's hair fashion which apparently is long on top and short on the sides.  She is trimming her sides and letting her hair on top grow.  She then proceeded to tell me that I should get this hair style...."it would look really good on you".....  Uh huh, sure.  She kept telling me its all the rage, it's what's hot in hair trends.....

I don't want a boys hair cut.......sorry, I think I'll stick to my original plan....maybe I'll even post a picture (I'll definitely post one if that's the hair cut I'm given lmbo!)
