    Returning to a hairstylist whom I never should have left in the first place (but did, because of a girlfriend who cuts hair but at an area of town I never go to and has a schedule that doesn't match mine, but gave a great discount, but then I could only match schedules to get my hair cut every three or four months, yadda . . .) -- anyway, he gave me the best haircut since . . . well . . . the last time I went to him. Great haircuts rock!!! (As do hairstylists who know what to do when you tell them, "You know my lifestyle and work. You know my face. You're the expert. Do your thing.")

    We tend to learn this particular lesson the hard way. I've been there, too.

    Friends and hair don't always mix! My husband goes to her, and it's a whole different story. She's on his way home from work, and they're a good match as regards stylist and head. (Whereas my guy stylist wasn't a great match with my husband. Go figure.) Anyway, it was just a happy feeling to go back and know that he, as a true professional, was understanding and cool about the whole thing, and for the first time in 2 1/2 years, I'm happy with my hair!

    I love it when my dog sits on my lap. He thinks he's ten pounds, but he's 35 pounds! He's adorable!

    Laughing with my son! Shows me that we are intellectually connected.

    Taking my daughter to the kids fair today and seeing the picture of her I got while she was holding a big spider, something she is deathly afraid of. The look on her face was complete joy.

    Taking the night off of all schoolwork! I helped put on a big event for kids in my area today and it went very well.
