I wasn't quite sure where you were going, but I think I get it now!

It's not a boudoir shoot... A local boutique asked me to model some clothes for a series of ads they are doing. I modeled 6 outfits altogether.

This is the only pic the photographer has sent me so far.
Ooh, that's so cool! Congrats!

Finally! I am having my hair done today for the first time in 4 or 5 months. My roots... Lets not even talk about my roots. I have been pretending they do not exist.

I'm not going to run today....I think.

I should probably prep because my father will make me run the whole time I'm home probably. Or maybe I'll run before I leave tomorrow. No. I could run tonight after work. NO. I don't know.

I tried to do a hand stand yesterday...I couldn't even...lift my legs. to get up. HAHAHAH.

I think I'm going to ask for resistance bands for christmas.

I don't understand why some people decide to try "meatless Monday" as if it's this huge novelty and BFD. Really, you have meat every single day of the week? For every meal? That's way more incredible to me than the idea of not eating meat once a week.

I hate mentoring.

It's not fun. Judge away, I hate myself for it but I hate it. I hate it. I don't like doing it. I don't like the school. I feel like a terrible human being and people make me feel like a terrible human being for not liking it, but I don't like it. I only did it because I have to for my class, but it's a trap because the program wants you to do it for a year. So you have to do it for a class and then you're stuck doing it for a year because they make you feel extra guilty. Not very fair. I don't have a real reason to get out of it for next year, but I don't want to do it next year. I just don't like it. It's like if I do it, I'll be annoyed the whole year that I have to do this, and if I don't I'll feel guilty the whole year.

I think one of my classes kind of conflicts with the times, but not enough to use it as an excuse.

I don't know what to do.
I'm supposed to go in like 20 minutes now, but I'm not even dressed because I don't want to go.

I feel like an *******, but I hate it.

Looks like I'm going to be the youngest doing Pilates today. Great. I'm not sure how I should feel about that.

Also, as much as I want to give lidl a go for my next food shop, I'm kind of scared by all the brands I've never heard of. I'm sure they're fine but my brain will not accept.

I didn't really communicate really well what I wanted at my last hair cut, so she gave me a bob with some really long, barely-there layers.

Well.... the top layer of my hair is significantly less curly than the bottom layer (2C/3A to 3B), so when I wear it curly, it looks like I have a nasty, shaggy curtain that is puffed into a triangle shape by the tight curls underneath.

My stylist is an 1.5 hour ferry away I don't know when I can fix this mess.

-RB, that picture is beautiful!

-LA, awe. Poor baby.

-So it's been three weeks since I originally called to make a physical therapy appointment and my initial evaluation was supposed to be today, but my insurance is wanting more, more, more information. It's a good thing I'm not in severe pain! Either the insurance co. was slow getting the paperwork to the PT office to fill out or the PT office was slow submitting the info. back, either way I'm so ready to get this OVER WITH.

-Silver lining, I'll get my last bit of Thanksgiving grocery shopping over with instead. Is it wrong I'm excited to go to a nicer grocery store in a neighboring town and wander around the store. Mmmm, black forest ham sandwich for lunch, here I come.

I randomly found myself driving next to my brother on my way home from school today... It was so out of the blue, because I was only like 5 minutes from school at that point - nowhere near where either of us live. So, of course, double chins/ridiculous faces and general distracted driving occurred for several miles until we had to go our separate ways. I love my family.

Thanks, ladies! It means a lot to hear your kind words!

I was a bit anxious about posting a photo

okay It's not that bad, I still don't know if I wanna do it but it's like exercising I dread it and then when I go I'm totally fine.

Meh.

My property tax assessment that I got yesterday was based on a property value that would indicate that my house has lost a quarter of its value ($50,000) in the last two years. And we bought when the market was really low already - before the bubble burst, townhouses identical to ours were selling for nearly 50k more than we paid.

Oh well. We don't need to sell any time soon. People are also listing houses similar to ours for quite a bit more than that estimate, so hopefully it's not that dire.

This is so annoying. Why do I even mention that I have computer problems when my son or husband are around? I automatically get my laptop taken from me and poohed poohed about any suggestions I might make. Errgghhh! I just called the HP tech support and they talked me through the diagnostics test. And I understood them. Wow! The joys of being married to a computer programmer and software developer!
