Life is a runaway train you can't wait to jump on.....

I didn't really do anything too exciting this weekend, well other than cutting off my hair and dying it dark brown with some copper tones....lol. So I suppose that would be pretty exciting!
Here is a semi-decent photo of how it looks, not the best I know but trust me this was a huge change and a change that I needed badly. Its been weird having bangs again, I grew mine out sophomore year of high school and didn't really plan on having them again, but here I am with them once more! Friday night I saw my friend Lauren from college, we haven't hung out in a really long time and it was good to see her. We watched Sex in the City (the movie) which I should have known better than to do since I cried pretty much the whole time......they all end up happy and with someone, but someday maybe that will happen for me. Saturday I worked at 3 Belles in the evening and came home and vegged in front of the TV for the rest of the night and ended up going to bed at 9:30 bc I am an old woman.

Sunday was football day, my grandparents came over to watch the Steelers game. They ended up loosing, but oh well, there is always next week and they still have a semi-decent record considering how bad all the other teams in there conference are doing.

Its back to work today, probably going to be really busy and hectic. I go to Cleveland on Friday with my boss for this new client project and I am nervous/excited about it. Emotionally I am doing much better, I didn't cry at all over the weekend and I have been doing a lot of things to improve my mood and not let this cold/depressing weather get to me. I am off probation at work and now have vacation and sick pay. My health insurance starts in about 3 weeks. This week I want to try to get a lot of homework done, maybe start working on some Christmas gifts! Hope everyone had a good weekend!!!!!

I just got bangs again, and I LOVE them.

Your hair is super-cute!

Well, it's ok that everyone wants to be like me wih brown hair and bangs, haha! Just kidding, but it's fummy because Kristin and Lindsay both dyed their hair dark and have bangs, too!
I'm glad to know you're doing better. Keep it up! Will and I should be in OH around the 18th of December, I think. It depends on how moving goes. But we'll be there! And we'll even be back after Christmas and around until New Year's! Yay!

Amanda said...

A lot of people at work have been dying their hair dark -- yours is better. It was so good to see you on Saturday. We'll have to do it again soon!

Amanda said...

Mel - Thank you, its still taking me a while to get used to it...sometimes I walk by a mirror and don't realize its me...lol

What a sassy new haircut, looks great! I decided that I'm going to wait until spring to chop all mine off......by then I'll have lots to donate!

Amanda said...

Wayfaring Wanderer - Thank you! I wish I could get my hair long enough to donate but its too thin and never gets past my shoulders.
