Not my Finest Hour

I am having a no good, very bad day today so I will keep this short in an effort to not drag the rest of you into my funk.It has been raining... I think for seven years but possibly it has only been for seven days. Either way it is gloomy and nasty outside and it is doing nothing for my temperament.

Last night, in an effort to move myself out of this funk I went to get my hair cut. Instead of cutting it... I sort of chopped it the F$%^ off.... ooopps... I was hoping that a change would help my mood... it didn't.

So if you remember... first we had this...
Then we had this...
Now we have this...It just keeps getting progressively shorter. Eventually I will get to the place where I just wash it and run my fingers through it. Hell... maybe I'll borrow Jake's clippers and just go for the bald look......

(Mom... that was a joke... you can stop dialing my number now telling me how much you hate short hair... I know... I get it...)
For the most part i like the haircut. It is easy to do it doesn't require a lot of maintenance, etc. Now whether I like the haircut on my head is another story entirely. I will let you know after I have some time to adjust to it this weekend.

Other than that, I decided to go to a meeting at noon today, since it was downtown and that's all sorts of convenient for me. Only problem, when I got there, no one was there. I called the Al-anon number and she couldn't help me. All she knew was that there was supposed to be a meeting there. Well... I knew THAT much.

So, here I am, missing my son (he's been going to bed at 6:30 and getting up at 6:45 all week so I don't feel like I've seen him all week) and buried in work at my desk and all I REALLY want to do is go home and go to bed.
Is it 5:00 yet??

I hear a pity party coming on!!! Can I join? Your hair is adorable... Sorry mom-- but she looks cute with short hair.

Enjoy your weekend away from home.

Awww, I'm sorry you're feeling down :( For the record I think your new hair is the best of the three!

Gotta say the shorter hair is a good look. Though I know your mom would say otherwise. Hope it gets better for you. It's hard when you miss your kid. I see mine for about a half-hour a day awake between his school and my work. Keep smiling!!

No you are not a dork Spell.

I like it to Heather. Sadly I am reading this post for the first time and I know that your weekend has gotten way worse. I am deeply sorry for your loss. I will let you blog about it at your own time.

Love you!
