Harrowing Hair Day

Yesterday was a little stressful.

I pretend not to be an organized person. I figure if people have lower expectations of my organizing abilities, then they won’t be upset if I screw-up. I like to make sure I’m covered IN the event of a screw-up, you know?

But the truth is that when it comes to my own schedule, I can be pretty organized. So, after having two weeks where every night was jam-packed with something, I was looking forward to finally having a night to run to the grocery store.

I thought I would just “pop-in” on my way home and get my shaggy-dog hair cut and styled. I’m more poodle than collie, anyway.

Proving how organized I am, I called at noon to see if Cost Cutters could get me in at 5:30 p.m. I was told they don’t take appointments, but if I called closer to 5:00 p.m., then they could give me an estimate. I did. They told me to call back at 5:20 p.m. So, I just decided to “pop-in” on my way home, anyway – I’m not calling at 5:20 if I can be there in person at 5:30, you know?

I ended up having to wait a half hour for someone to tell me that it would be another half hour before I could get in. I seethed a little inside as I walked over to The Dollar Tree. Might as well redeem the time, you know?

I actually had fun in The Dollar Tree, although I didn’t buy anything. I’ve had so much $$$ come out of my check for things this week, and Brett doesn’t even know yet, so I’m afraid he’s not going to like it. Not much I can do about it – they were all legitimate things…well, maybe not the jewelry…but everything ELSE!

By the time I got back to Cost Cutters, I’d pretty much decided to be in a bad mood. But, as any woman knows, getting your hair washed, dried, cut, and styled by a professional can do wonders for your mood.

After my “spa” treatment, I was in a much better mood. Plus, I was able to stock up on my favorite hair care products from Big Sexy Hair. I know what you’re thinking. “She won’t spend money at The Dollar Tree, but she’ll spend $50 on hair care?” Yeah, well. So what? It’s true!

And, let’s be honest, isn’t my hair worth it?!

After my hair cut it was after 7:30 p.m., so I headed home to tell Brett our shopping night was scrapped. He was actually exhausted, so it worked out okay for him. Plus Season 6 of Murder She Wrote from Netflix had arrived, so we snuggled up together to celebrate 80’s hair, clothes, and our favorite TV sleuth.

Our church’s mission conference starts tonight. I keep thinking that it would be so nice to go shopping – plus, we need to. But I know our souls would be better cared for if we went to the mission’s conference. Decisions. Decisions.

The thing is…my hair looks SO good now, you know? So…well, we should go to church anyway!

But I’ll like it even more since I’ll have Big Sexy Hair.

Is it okay to have that in church?

Yes, it is. Nothing like BIG SEXY HAIR. I don't have it, but I am looking forward to seeing yours.
