endings and beginnings

tomorrow is my last day at my current job. you'd think it would be a joyous occasion, but really, I've gotten fairly good at this and don't feel anywhere near the pressure I had before. it's not that I don't want to leave, because I do (as I hate the industry), but I feel like I am going to be starting all over again not knowing what the hell I'm doing. which is exactly what's going to happen, obviously. I hope I pick it up quickly.

in other news, not that this is pressing, but it's on my mind: I got my roots done yesterday and I'm annoyed. to back up, a few weeks ago, I got my hair professionally colored for the second time in my life (as I usually do it myself.) I wanted a golden brown with blonde highlights but apparently I can't do that for some reason. I'm not sure why, as they seem to do whatever the hell they want on america's next top model and stuff, but I had to settle for a darker brown with red tones and blonde highlights. and it cost me alot of money. probably not alot of money to people who do this regularly, but I'm used to $10 feria or whatever's on sale.

so my roots were growing in big time, and I went back to get them done yesterday. the lady who did them originally wasn't there, and this dude did it instead. he said that you only do the highlights like every 3rd time...okay. my hair grows sort of fast, but he's the expert. so he does the color and it takes 400 years. he left me sitting with sopping wet hair while he went and did something else for 15 minutes. then he asked if I wanted him to trim up my hair. now they asked me this last time, and I said just the very ends...so I said that again. and here's where I am really pissed now - he cut way too much off and I am only just barely able to get my hair in a pony tail. and the pony tail is vital, as anyone with longer hair knows. how else can I get away with not showering??? and the entire process ended at 7:40, for my 6pm appointment.

so there's that.

trent hit his head on the corner of a table in science class earlier this week and had to be taken to the ER to see if he needed stitches. after waiting there for over 2 hours, we did find out that he'd need either about 4 stitches (if we wanted it to heal without much scarring) or skin glue...we opted for the glue. the cut is behind his ear, right near his hair, so no one will really see it. but we were in that hospital for over 3 hours.

I've done alot of waiting in the last week. I hate waiting.

wish me luck in my new job. I will tell you how it goes as soon as I can. I am grateful for all the feedback you guys give me. thank you, interweb....


quarterly blogging - it's all the rage

first: I got a new job. so I won't be as fried anymore and maybe I'll even have more time to blog. I start on 4/30.

second: bella and trent are good kids, as usual. I have alot to say about them but confronted with a new blog entry, I feel like I don't even know where to start.

well, I will say that bella's getting a little attytude (as my dad would say) to her. when I ask her to do something more than once, she says "aw-WIGHT." she also is very concerned about who is going with her to do things. I'll tell her that daddy is picking her up and she'll say "how bout you? how bout trentle?" which tears me up with guilt.

she's into brushing my hair with puzzle pieces and taking care of each of her baby sisters, all named baby lucy. she likes to read me books and to watch movies - we just got a vcr again finally and all my old disney movies are resurfacing. she's currently in love with lion king and booty anna beast.

and I can either stop here and try to post more later, or not do this at all...
