I did it... FINALLY!!

After months of agonizing over what haircut to get when I donate for Locks of Love, I finally decided. Today was the day! I went over to Trade Secret in Great Northern Mall where they will shampoo/cut/style your hair for free, then mail it in. Nothing felt better than a FREE haircut!

Here is before:
(Me and James for Christmas 2003)

And after:
(this evening after my haircut)

Do you all approve? I feel like the picture on the left ages me, but the pic on the right doesn't. How the hell does that happen????

Goodnight y'all.
I was reading Diana's Site and decided to try her little "What's your summer ride?" quiz. Here are my results:

Your Summer Ride is a Beetle Convertible

Fun, funky, and a little bit euro.
You love your summers to be full of style and sun!

Unlike Diana's results, mine are OPPOSITE of what I really drive. I drive a Hyundai Elantra. Not even one with a sun roof!! I like my little car... it gets me from A to B, and I get 400 miles to the tank (I think its a 12gal tank?). Either way, it will be paid off in under 2 years I believe. Then I will milk the damn thing until it dies on me, and buy myself a nice new car. My dream car will never be a reality, but I can always hope... Hell- my brother has one. If he can buy one so can I!!! Ahh.. to be rich.

But then if I was rich, I wouldn't be working fulltime. Maybe per diem or something if I felt like it. I would spend my days travelling the world. I really do want to live in China and Europe for sometime in my life. Rather it be because I'm wealthy or because I have a job there.... I miss travelling. The US is okay, but there's nothing like other cultures.... When I was younger I used to want to be Asian. Now that I know that's impossible (damn!) I really want a Chinese baby. I mean, I want to HAVE one, not just adopt one. Seeing as how James is not Asian, I guess adoption will have to do. But give me time.... Maybe in 10 years I'll have the time and money for little children to be hanging on me.

Can you tell I'm home and BORED????

Just my luck...

This morning I get to work and I have to cover another secretary's position. No big deal- at least I still get paid. I got up to go on my break, went over to MY desk, and noticed that someone opened the window that is supposed to always be closed due to patient confidentiality. I tried to close the window but it was stuck. The damn window had come off its track, which it does on occasion. I went to lift it back on track and I felt my upper back muscle tear. HOLY SHIT it hurt! I went to the Employee Health Office and laid on a stretcher for an hour with ice and meds. I am so paranoid to begin with because I had lower back surgery in 2002, the last thing I need is another back problem. Needless to say, I went home at noon today. I couldn't take the pain! So I've been sitting here now, for 10 hours, doing nothing. I mean NOTHING. Actually, the past hour I did work on my 2nd Magic Stripe sock. Yes, you read that right, my SECOND one! I'm now almost done with the heel, and headed for the toe. Yay! I can only knit a little at a time because my shoulder blades are not thrilled I'm moving them at all. I am unsure if I'm going to work in the morning or not. I want to go see my MD or my surgeon, but I don't have the money to right now. We'll see what the morning brings. I'm off to sleep. Goodnight.

Darien Lake

So last weekend I hung out with Andrea. On Saturday we ventured out to the Chalet. Here's the traffic we encountered... STOP START STOP START for 1 hour.... And for what???

To see this RV that was flattened on the side of the road in the Montezuma Refuge. It's not like it was a little RV either- it looked to be about a 35-40 foot-er. How horrible is this? There was a little girl bent by the side of it trying to find what remains she could... How sad.

All I could think about was my Mom being in the mid-west all alone in her RV travelling for the summer.... I sure am glad she's back in town.

On a good note, I FINALLY REACHED 30,000 MILES ON MY CAR!!! I was so pissed I missed the 30K picture....

On Sunday we went to Darien Lake. It was such a gorgeous day! I thought I would enlighten you all with some photos:

hing Beauties! (Including the goose!!)

You think we got enough sun? Our skin was so fried! :)

You all have to go on the Superman Ride of Steel. It's so awesome!! Plus, it takes a good picture in the evening.

We're thinking of going one more time in September maybe....

I hope everyone is enjoying their summer!

Dorky Bean

Isn't my profile photo rediculous??? The lovely hat I'm wearing is a CHILD'S hat made out of wool. I think it's not that flattering. I was just goofing around and Liz took my picture. I don't really look like this, I swear.....
