1. When we moved to Raleigh 12 years ago and the boys were in diapers and I didn’t know a soul, our UPS delivery guy was the only person I would see on a regular basis and in my head, he became a friend. We’ve moved
three times since I last saw him which may explain the puzzled look on his face when I perhaps waved a little too enthusiastically when I unexpectedly ran into him this week at a shopping center.
Maybe he would have recognized me if I’d not washed my hair in a week and draped babies on each available hip.
2. I spent a good five minutes explaining to Craig why I thought he needed a new laptop case because the handles of his weren’t padded enough and it might hurt his hands when he carried it and as I was getting to point #7 about why I worried about it, he walked over to me, drew me into his arms and whispered into my ear “Deep breaths. Let it go. I got this.”
Good advice to apply to many situations.
Some problems belong to other people.
And some things I perceive as problems really just aren’t.
3. Speaking of problems, I’ve solved one this past week and have decided to let my hair grow long. I figure I’m not too far from the age most women start chopping it off so this may be the last chance to play with the length.
And French braids.
And a kick-butt ponytail.
Unlike that thing I’m currently sporting that looks like the docked end of a Doberman.
4. I went back to the Hello Kitty eyebrow waxing place yesterday because my previous eyebrow lady moved and DESPERATE TIMES, my friends. Fortunately, no third degree burns on the eyelids this time though they took enough off to stuff a Build-A-Bear and now I have a constant surprised look on my face without having to raise my non-existent eyebrows.
5. Have a nice day.
