Random thoughts of an upbeat mind

Life is just chugging along over here. Each week is looking more like the last with respect to exercise and work. I took Thursday and Friday off this week to rest and relax. I was also going to go to a new salon on one of my days off to get my hair trimmed. I was talking about it with my Aunt who recommended her hairdresser who is 1/6 of the price of the salon downtown.

So I am going to give it a shot. Worst case scenario it doesn’t work out for me and I’m out a few dollars. Best case I find a new and very affordable hairdresser. I am really  hoping for the latter. Either way my hair gets a long overdue trim. The back is really in need of some assistance and attention.

Today was one of my Aunt’s 65th birthday and she came in from Arizona to have a party. It was great, I got to see a lot of her family that I only see at these types of events. To clarify this Aunt is my cousin’s mother and we are not related by blood and even though she is no longer involved with my Uncle I still keep and honor the relationship. She has again told me that I have an open invitation to visit her any time. I will definitely think about it next winter.

Since I was out today and lazing yesterday, I did not cook. There are enough leftovers to get me to Tuesday night so I should be OK. I am still trying to keep my food spending under control. I bought lunch last week as salmon was on the menu and I was greatly disappointed. It helps to reinforced the idea that I need to cook. Spending money and not getting what I want, be that good food or good service, just makes me mad.

My goal this week is to get to be before midnight, so I need to get going.

Have a great week.

  1. I value a lot of continuing relationships with extended family too; some of which are “chosen family.” To bed at midnight! That would make me completely non-functional!
