This is a photo that would have caused a sickening reaction of fear in me a year ago. But over the course of a year, I can see that he is being funny/cute when he looks up at me that way. That’s a wonderful result of having him here. Do you see the filthy floor in this photo? That is the not -so-wonderful result of having him here. Every surface of the house looks like that, no matter how much I try to clean.
This has been a weird week. I will be very glad to leave work this afternoon for two days off. But first, I am going downtown for a shower for my former boss. It will be nice to see some of my old pals. I wish I could show up looking “fabulous,” but that is not to be.
My hair is horrifying. I asked my hair stylist for a short layered bob. I told her I wanted my hair to look like a bubble. Instead I have a dowdy looking pear shaped bob. Lamenting about this yesterday to my daughter, she said it was cute, but did admit it is a little bit “librarianish.” The look is exacerbated by the sandy brown mixed with grey color. It’s all gotta go! Next month I shall be a blonde again! With short layered hair, dammit! I wanted to see what color it is, and now I know. I don’t mind the color per se, but I don’t like the way it makes me look so washed out.
Sorry to be so boring today, but that is my life…. I feel I need to clarify about what I said yesterday about feeling so good by adding meat back into my diet. That is not all I am doing. I am also not eating grains or dairy. I know this is likely not sustainable for me, but my energy is back and my perpetual stomach ache is gone. I am not complaining about that!
Today my goal is to not have even one conversation that goes crossways.
