So let’s see. Saturday night Mattie and I went to a Halloween party which started out fun but ended up being not fun at the end through absolutely no fault of the hosts. My costume was a hit and I had a lot of fun wearing it. I’m still not sure if we are going to pass out candy this year but I really do want to do pumpkins. I haven’t carved one since I was like 7 and I think it would be a lot of fun.
Sunday night we had dinner at a new to us restaurant with some friends which was a disappointment. Our friends are great but the food was cold, mediocre, and the service was crappy. I gave them a crappy two star review on Yelp and we won’t be going back.
I stopped by the beauty supply store Sunday afternoon and I picked up my next hair color. It was cheaper in the store than online but the other things I needed were cheaper online. It took a few days for everything to arrive, but I wasn’t in a huge hurry to color it. Bleaching my roots, toning it all to an even shade of blonde, and then coloring it the color I want is a long and boring process.
Late Sunday evening I got fed up and took the keyboard out of my laptop to discover that as I thought, all my keys are cushioned with a heavy mat of dog hair which explains why half of them don’t work. It took me about ten minutes to decide to order a new keyboard and just replace it rather than try to pop up every single key and try to clean it all out. I attempted to pop the keys off and clean under them but I broke my Z and X keys so just ordered the replacement part.
Monday was uneventful. I went shopping, got dog food, and in the evening decided to put my costume on and go to pool dressed up. I shot kinda crappy but we played a good team, and while two of my games were awful, the other two were actually okay.
Today I mailed out a package, and stopped by Micheal’s to look for yellow clay. They had the light yellow shade but not the golden yellow I wanted to so I left empty handed. After that I swung by the beauty supply store to grab some other stuff for doing my hair. I was happy to see when I came home that my packages had arrived about the same time, so I could install my laptop keyboard and start on my hair.
The laptop keyboard was so easy to put in! It literally took me about a minute to install it. Its so nice to be able to actually type and not have to hit the keys 4 or 5 times and hope it finally works. No more typing “cray” instead of “crazy”!
My hair took about two and a half hours to do, and then I had to redo a small section that I missed somehow. There are a few areas where the color didn’t take as well as I’d have liked but when it fades a bit in time it won’t be that noticeable at all I don’t think. I’ll see about getting a good photo to put in my next post, but its raspberry pink. Poor Mattie! He hates pink and now his GF has pink hair! :p
I did finally step on the scale today and it was not pretty which means I really need to get myself back on track again. No more excuses, and no more backsliding. Of course this means divorcing myself from Netflix which I just signed us back up for again.
