Don’t know what to say

Posted on: July 15, 2008

I have a friend who’s going through some tough family stuff right now. I wish that there was something I could say to help or something I could do to make things better. Because she’s been there for me many times when I’ve needed it. For now, I’m just offering support and listening.

I also continued in my growing process today by asking for some help and not getting stressed out. I’ve got a few things that have to be taken care of by the end of the week, partly because of vacation and partly just because that’s how it is. So, I asked for a day off the desk to concentrate on what I need to do. Turns out I’ve gained a bit of time tomorrow since a meeting was canceled, so with that and a mostly free Thursday (except for a department meeting in the morning) to work on some things. That way Friday will be all about finishing touches.

I’ve honestly not been knitting much this week yet. I started another bathmat (that will actually be a bathmat this time around.)

And now for a couple of pictures. The first is the baking I did a couple of weekends ago. The rolls were a bit odd tasting. I think I need some new flour. Actually I know I do because the chocolate cashew bars had the same odd flavor. They also didn’t hold together as well as I could have like so I think they needed to be in the oven a bit longer.

The second picture shows my new hair. The cut is pretty similar to what I’ve been doing for the past few months, although this time I had a stylist who actually did it really well. (Too bad she’s moving to St. Louis. It was her last day.) But I went crazy and bought one of those fun highlighting kits, so my hair now has purplish/red tips. I don’t care that I’m 36, I wanted to try something different. Excuse the fact that I’m generally not photogenic.

Love the hair and the color. I had almost the exact same cut and color after my son was born!

You are TOO photogenic! I love the haircut, and it’s so nice to see your face again, my friend! You know, there’s a children’s librarian at the library on post who totally reminds me of you – isn’t that funny? Just something about her face and her general carriage, and even the way she talks.

Anywho, you rock your purplish-red tips, my friend! Who cares if you’re 36? I mean, heck – I got my first tattoo at 33!

I really like this picture! You should make it a user icon! I’m currently contemplating dying my hair purple or blue or hot pink. And I’m 32. And I work with lawyers.

Good suggestion. So, I did!
