Well have you? That’s what I expected to hear today when I made a phone call.
It was the phone call to my hair stylist. I haven’t been to see her in probably over nine months. I had to “refine” my budget when Kassity got her braces, and that was one thing I could eliminate from the monthly or bi-monthly expenses. Yes, my plan was to have my hair professionally done (instead of using the little boxes off the shelf and my own trimming shears) back during my birthday month. But all I can say is where does the time, go? Seriously, March came and went and I missed any opportunity to get my hair professionally done as well as many of the things I had planned to do – just for me.
But my hairstylist, Veronica, didn’t even flinch; she didn’t even skip a beat when she heard my voice. She really knows how to keep a relationship, don’t you think? And then I asked if she could ‘work me in’ because I was hoping she could do my color and cut this weekend. Not only did she work me in, but I went the same day (today, Friday) after work and got everything done –no questions asked!
You know how hair stylists can be, but not this one. Ah, all is well and I explained to her all about Kassity’s braces and that my tight budget was the reason I hadn’t been to see her in a while (all without being asked).
So that was my Mother’s Day pampering excursion for the weekend: a new hairstyle.
Find yourself… keeping it real.
