Nathan & Kitten

schedule packed from end to end

Things are getting unbearably crowded. I cannot work this afternoon nor can I look at properties because I'm driving out to the East side for a hair cut. I don't normally drive out to the East side for a hair cut, but shadiee recommended this guy to me. It's a fancy smancy salon that charges $85 for a haircut. I can't wait to find out what an $85 hair cut looks like!

This evening after I teach a class, I have a pole party. Who books a bachelorette party on a Wednesday night!? One of my instructors is teaching in my studio at the same time so in order to fit the party, I had to rent out a competitor's pole studio for the evening. His studio is not available until 9pm, so I'll be teaching that party from 9:00 to 11:00pm and then driving all the way home.

I have a pole party on Friday. This is rare, those Friday parties. And lord have mercy I have THREE pole parties on Saturday! I have never attempted to do 3 in one day but one of my instructors is out of town and the other is celebrating her graduation. To make it even more challenging, the first party is at 10:00am. I'm usually never up before 10:00am. Yet I need to be up and perky and energetic and ready to teach for 6 hours at that time! Lucky for me I can wind down the evening at a stuff swap party Saturday night.

Sunday should be my day off. But I have to substitute two back to back classes for my instructor that is out of town.

Somehow with all this wall to wall teaching, I still need to fit in lots of admin and studio and home hunting. I will be purchasing lots of pre-prepared meals this weekend since I obviously I will have no time or energy to cook. If anyone wants to bring over some pre-prepared hugs, I could use some of those too!!!

my day

Whole Foods had a fresh batch of sugar free blueberry pie today! I picked one up, along with some sugar free whip cream. After the 1/2 week I'v had already, I think I'm not even going to cut a slice. I'm just going to sit down with the entire pie and a fork and eat until I'm happy.

So the $85 hair cut is fine but I think what I was really paying for was the knowledge and experience. According to this guy, those expensive ceramic straightening irons really do damage your hair. Until now, I had believed all the hype about how the ceramic ones were safe. And all this time I thought my hair wouldn't grow long anymore because it keeps breaking off. But he showed me where in fact it simply won't grow anymore. Most of my hair grows to about my ears. Some grows longer than that and I keep trying to grow that part past my shoulders. But it looks too thin and scraggly because the majority of it just stops growing after a certain length. This is hard to accept considering how most of my life I've had long, gorgeous, thick wavy hair. But these things happen as we get older. I will just have to learn to live with shoulder length hair. And when I do want long hair, I have tons of clip in hair extensions including curls, dreads, pig tails, you name it. And the stylist was so sweet, he kept telling me I didn't need long hair to be pretty and that I'm beautiful just the way I am.
