Whew. Sorry about the rudeness on my last post. Short and to the point or what. I was feeling better last night so I was hoping to write a longer post but as soon as I looked at the computer screen I got an instant headache.
What’s funny when you’re sick is that life doesn’t stop. You know? You still have appointments and obligations.
Yesterday I went to Costco with my mom and J. I bought something for R last weekend for $70.00. We found out that it went on coupon for $50.00 just for this weekend, and if we brought our receipt in we could get the difference back. So, I just had to go into the city and get that done. And if I’m in Costco I might as well buy a few things right? I mean, that’s how Costco works. I got myself a nice big poinsettia for my table. And those fuzzy socks were on coupon too, so I had to get me some of those.
We went for lunch afterwards but that took longer than expected because it was so busy in town! T’is the season. Busy busy and cranky people who don’t like to wait in line. Anyone who lives in this city knows that all of the stores are short staffed yet they’re still surprised that they have to wait in line! It’s even been advertised on the news: Get your shopping done early because the stores will have a hard time meeting the Christmas rush. There’s a sign posted at Tim Horton’s that says: “Please, be nice to our staff – we have hard enough time keeping them.” How sad that some people need a sign to tell them to be nice! Everyone should work in the service industry at least once in their lives so that they know what it’s like. Then maybe they wouldn’t be such a%$holes.
In the afternoon I had a appointment to get my hair cut. My friend, L, does my hair and we’ve been trying for weeks to get our schedules to match up so that I couldn’t cancel. I’ve been looking forward to it, too, because I felt like getting a big change. And ohhhhhhhh did I ever get a change. I have a nice short bob, and it’s……..red! Yeah baby. You’ll see me comin’! I’m still shocked every time I look in the mirror but I’m sure I’ll get used to it. Actually this morning, in the bright light of my bathroom mirror, the colour looks a bit more orange than red. So, we might have to do some adjusting. Can you do that I wonder? Add colour on top of colour? I’ll have to ask L.
J was with me while I was getting my hair done so she saw the whole process while it was happening. Adrian and R, on the other hand, were away for the whole day. Adrian seemed to like my hair when he first saw it, although he couldn’t resist calling me carrot top. R just stared at me. I asked him what he thought, and he said, “You don’t look like my mommy.” Awww. I told him that he’ll get used to it.
Today J and I worked the bake/craft sale for the Junior Forest Wardens at our local community hall. It was a nice event and we made a little money for our program.
And that’s my weekend. How was yours?
