Today was such a relaxing day. I only actually worked about 2 hours, then ate Greek food that was catered in (we get lunch at the office each Friday), and went home. Since I'm going in tomorrow morning, I got this afternoon off. What to do . . what to do. . . go to the beach, of course!
I went jogging along the ocean today and it was perfect. It was beautiful . . the weather was perfect. Tomorrow I'll post a few of the many pictures I took.
After my jog, I went to a nearby salon to have my hair texturized and thinned out . . it's been driving me crazy for sooo long. The girl did a great job on it, but DANG! it was expensive. It cost $50, and I didn't even have any length taken off. Then, after I bought some Bumble & bumble styling cream and left a tip, I was up to $77!! I could've gone to Rocco's about a mile away, but once I walked up to the door, I did a quick 180 when I got a closer look at the place and saw the sign that read "Women's Haircuts: $16.75". My hair is worth much more to me than that. I wonder . . when I place cuts hair for that cheap, do they even know the definition of the word "texturize"?
I headed home to actually cook myself a meal. For the past 2 weeks, the only thing I've eaten at home is PB & J or Wheaties. I finally went grocery shopping this week, which was one of the most depressing things I've done in awhile, considering the prices I had to pay. But cooking something good tonight wasn't in the cards. I don't have a big history of using gas stoves . . or any stove for that matter, since I don't do much cooking . . so I thought perhaps they took extra-long to heat up. Once I became light-headed and the butter in pan still hadn't melted, I began to wonder . . so I phoned Mom and she told me 5 times to turn the stove off and open my windows! Looks like I'll have to call maintenance to have the pilot-thing turned on. And my supper tonight . . PB & J.
I went shopping with Delaware at a very cute boutique and almost left without buying anything. . but I spotted this long gold chain with faux pearls and charms at the end and just had to have it. I also spotted some earrings for $20 that I paid $10 for in Omaha. Crazy.
