I have been looking forward to tonight all week.
It's been a long one. Too many battles with the tyrant. Too much drama with the ex. Too many hours in heels. Too much confusion. So tonight? Well deserved.
After work I dropped off my daughter and headed to the salon. I'm trying to go 'back' to my natural hair colour, except I've been highlighting it ever since the blond started fading, so I don't know what that colour is. Right now it is red. Or orange. Not good. But it gave me two hours to catch my breath and tonight was a done deal so all systems go.
I picked up my daughter from my mother's, got fed (bonus!), got home, all I had to do was get through bathtime. Simple. In theory. In reality, World War 13. It involved water guns. No casualties, except the bathroom. It can drip dry. The tyrant had five minutes on the iPad because it's the weekend, 2 stories, and then booyah I was free!
Quick change, pinned up the hair, and raced downstairs. Perfectly on time. For Perfect.
Me, couch, popcorn, pajamas, Grey's Anatomy marathon. And my laptop.
Done with my time out of the last few months. My head has had enough time to sort itself out.
I've zeroed in on two projects to get my teeth into at work, and I'm off on my MA again in four weeks. So I'm enjoying a clean house, drafting a Literacy Policy, updating a database, watching Season 4, playing Words with Friends, FB chatting, painting nails, soaking feet, and blogging.
This is more like it.
