After the taxing week I had, I really need a relaxing weekend!
I went with my friends to breakfast at Lumberjack this morning. They are both so sweet and solicitous, asking how they could help or make things easier for me. We had a great breakfast and wonderful conversation. After we ate they took me to the hair place for a long-overdue haircut. My hair was down past my shoulder blades and scraggly as anything, and I got it cut super-short. In fact, the shop was able to take several sections of it to donate to Locks of Love to make wigs for chemo patients! I didn't think of that, but I'm so glad it was a possibility.
After they dropped me off and went home, I relaxed with TV and my knitting. Proof yet again that Somebody is trying to tell me something: I saw several ads for a company called Graze.com. For $6 every other week, they send you a box of healthy snacks (nuts, fruits, etc.). Shoot, I know I spend way more than that on garbage snacks. So I signed up. And I even get my first box free!
Meantime, at work yesterday there were a lot of food items out for people to take (things people didn't want). I ended up not taking anything. There were several bags of white rice (I switched to brown years ago). There were also several boxes of Kraft Mac and Cheese. Seriously? Contrary to the ads, I know I DON'T love it. There was even a can of crab meat, but let's get real -- canned crab is a desecration of a gorgeous food. I'll wait until I can afford the real thing, thanks.
I think the shoulders may finally be coming un-knotted.
