Wow, another post

Yesterday I went shopping with Naomi, and had such a fun time. I ended up buying some hot rollers at Wal Mart, and now I feel like I can finally do the fantastic styles that David, my miracle worker, does on me every 6 weeks.

6 weeks?!? Yes, I admit that I get my hair done that frequently. If I don't... well, lets just say, I end up with a Cruella deVille streak of grey down the center of my hair. I keep thinking that I should embrace the grey, my grandmother had beautiful white hair, but I tend to dwell on the word 'grandmother' in that sentence. Nope, not quite ready for that one yet.

I do realize that I could do this myself, but I have become an adult with allergies, and I am allergic to so many hair dyes. Yes, it sucks. Of course, the sheets of dead skin that flake off my scalp after using certain hair dyes suck even more.

Work has been very odd lately. We've been busier than usual, and that's good for the company. Our parent company is spinning us off into a new company that doesn't have their name on it at all. We've already changed our name to a different one that people don't associate with the evil parent company, and now to actually go into a different company entirely... that's pretty good.

Yesterday I went shopping with my oldest child. It was actually quite fun. I was able to pick up the things that I was looking for, except for a knife sharpener.
Then, she took me to Old Navy. I'm not what I consider an Old Navy girl, but they have a ton of cute skirts there! It didn't hurt that I had a 30% off coupon from her. I guess having a Gap Girl for a daughter does have its benefits! The confession that I have right now, is that I'm going to go back. After I left, I kept thinking about a couple of the tops I looked at but didn't try on, and I really think that I'd like to take a second look at them.

Hmmm... what else to update... OH yes, I got a promotion! It should show up in this next paycheck, too. I'm very excited about that one. I have no idea what the difference in the pay is going to be because apparently only one week of the payraise will show, and I will have to figure it out once I take a look at the pay stub. I'm also moving through certifications. I'm working on Underwriting Guidelines now, next will be specialty states and then one more level along with licensing. I am very excited to be progressing, even though the company is a bit shaky, progressing through these levels is going to look a lot better on my resume, but really I cannot see myself as working in the area of the company I'm in now for long... I really want to get into quality or underwriting.

I guess that's it! I'm going to take the Red Rocket to a tire place and see if they can patch the slow leak I've got going on and then go back to Old Navy and see if they have that cute top in my size!

Congrats on the promotion! That's great news. :) Embrace the 6 wk styles - that's a nice little treat to enjoy. Did you end up with any of the cute ON tops?

Sarah, I went back and tried them on and I looked totally lame. It was sad.

I did get a couple more sweaters that I liked, and a really cute tank to wear under one of those sweaters... oh and a cute polo shirt. I need to wear that tomorrow!
