Time flies when you're procrastinating.
This was a busy week, so I'm basking in non busyness. Plus, it's just me and the furry and scaly things right now. Magnum and Meego went to New Mexico for a couple of days to visit Magnum's mom. Chaco went along too. My mother-in-law had a small stroke a few weeks ago. She's doing okay, but her speech ability was affected, so it's difficult to talk to her on the phone.
While I'm in a bit of a limbo state regarding employment, I took on another tutee, have been answering questions for other possible tutees, and am getting established with some other tutor matching companies. They all make us take and pass these tests to prove we know the stuff we want to tutor, and I'm all, "Can't you just check with the other service I'm already using?". Okay, no.
In the meantime, I get daily job alerts for various full-time positions I might be interested in. The life of the unemployed can be surprisingly busy.
In the other meantime, remember when I was contemplating Princess Leia earmuff hair? Well, I didn't do that, but I did change the hair up.
I was partially inspired by one of my friends who went radical asymmetrical bob, complete with razor undercut and red dye for Valentine's day. As she put it, "Stepping away from the mom hair for Valentine's Day! Show YOURSELF some love!"
No, I did not go asymmetrical bob complete with razor undercut and dye, but she looks awesome.
I went to the salon armed with some photos. As I talked to the stylist and showed her my photos, I could see her eyes lighting up. Was that a good thing?
Once we got situated, she said, "Let's DO this!" and got to cutting. Was that a good thing?
She seemed to be having bunches of fun while I quietly watched large and long clumps of my mom hair falling around me. Here's the back. I have a neck back there now instead of the weirdly positioned Minnie Mouse ears that my hair always seemed to morph into.
It took a couple of days to get used to, but I'm liking it 🙂
More professional looking? I dunno.
Minnie Mouse? Heck no.
Yesterday, before the guys headed south, we attended Meego's Winter Percussion competition. One of the volunteer moms attending the admission ticket table had a similar cut, which looked great on her.
So, in getting away from mom hair, I've copied and been inspired by other moms.
Maybe it's the new "mom".
