Making good financial decisions

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.

Where did the day go?

I don’t know how it is now past my bedtime.

The girls got up late and we dashed to the grocery store that my sister works at to do a little shopping.  After than we went to get our eyebrows done and the wait was longer than usual.

I brought my sister home with me so we could finally watch Arrow from 2 weeks ago.  Before doing that we loaded up the car with all the goodies to donate.  I’m sure I could have sold them but it just seemed like more work that I really want to take on.  My sister and I took the stuff to the local Value Village and then went to another grocery store to pick up a few more things.

I made KD for dinner.  Don’t judge me.

I put Diva’s hair in twists and blow dried Princess’ straight.  I bought some Indian powders a while ago.  Today I finally made them into a paste and put it in my hair to deep condition it.  I put Amla and Brahni powder in my hair which is supposed to make my hair darker and stronger.   The paste looked like mud.  I put it in my hair and it was alright.  My bath tub looked like I was hanging out by the river’s edge while I was rinsing it out.    As much as I tried to wash it all out of my hair, I still have some “grit”. 😦  I can’t say for sure that I really noticed a real difference in my hair.

Ok, bedtime for me for sure now.
