Ahhhh. I just wrapped up my first big professional development presentation of the year and I am exhausted. I am enjoyed the 20 minutes of piece and quite in my house while my husband is out with the girls. Though I feel tired, I also find the whole process exhilarating and meeting all the new K-Gr. 3 teachers that I will be working with this year is the best part. The team I work with is funny, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and invigorating.
With the start of a new year comes a fresh new look so I treated my self to a new hair color/highlight combo. You know when you are a mom and this is just the most pampering you get so you are excited for days?!? Well I was and then........My color was awful!!!! :( I wanted to cry. I came home and my 9 year old asked why I had "gray" hair pieces. (not the best time to hear this honesty) What do you do in these situations? I usually just want to pay again and have it fixed by someone else but being as we are really watching our spending at the moment, I texted the lady who did it and I was just honest with her that this was not at all what I had hoped for. She was WONDERFUL and had me come in the next day, she put a toner on it and though it's not what I indented, I feel that I can live with it and feel good about it.
|Old hair color. Bye, bye, summer.|
|Strange, ash color that I didn't like.|
|New Fall Color!|
