I had my hair appointment today. I printed out a few pictures of styles I liked but I really had very little of an idea of what I wanted to do with it when I got there. I knew I wanted SHORT hair and I had no idea what color. So when I arrived I grabbed the first hair book I saw, which was one for color rather than styles, and I found 3 pictures I loved within 60 seconds. After sitting down and showing my hairstylist we quickly sorted things out. I found a gorgeous red color which is similar to colors I've had before but it's slightly different somehow. I can't put my finger on it. And he cut the hair in between a really drastic photo I brought... this one:
... and a slightly longer curly version with slightly longer sides. So it's shaved around the sides, but with two little pieces in the front on either side which disguise the shavedness. The top is pretty much like that photo but a little longer in the front and a little shorter in the back. Did I mention that the color is beautiful? Beautiful.

That's the good part. The rest is just a huge ball-o-stress. I got stuck at the mall today because the power was knocked out for the whole city. I had to pay for my haircut via phone after I left and the power came back on. Took me nearly an hour to get out of the parking lot. Sucked. So I was gone a lot longer than I planned on. I felt guilty because my dad was only planning to watch the kiddo for 2-3hrs and it ended up being 5.5hrs. Now I have homework thats due tonight. I'm working a 24hr shift tomorrow starting at 7am and I'll need to leave by 6am. I have to finish up my daughter's valentines for her class at school. I was going to bake this cake with her but I think I might be too wiped out...

What else... Oh I have 2 loads of laundry to fold, and 2 more to wash. I hate laundry. I have more homework due on Monday. And I have about 2 weeks to pack everything. 

I keep telling myself that the packing will get easier after this weekend once I'm really not working anymore but that's because I casually forget about all the other things going on like the kid's first dentist appt on Tues, my massage on Wed, her swim class on Thurs, aerials class on Friday, a friend's potluck housewarming party on Sat, and Sunday I might just be free. I am never this busy normally and now when I have to pack and move. Oh jeez I just nearly had a panic attack thinking I had to register for classes on the 14th but it doesn't start till the 19th. Thank goodness. 

Blah blah blah, whine whine whine. Maybe a little, but I'm sure everything will work out just fine in the end even if I feel like I'm being crushed by it all right now.
