Packin’ up and headin’ out

I haven’t felt very verbose lately. I’ve got things in my head that I’ve contemplated writing about, but have decided not to get into it, not in detail anyway.

I will say that the guilty parties who had been “trolling” my site have come forward and apologized. I’m not sure whether we (I?) will be able move past this or not. They are women I’ve known for more than half of my life, and were my best friends in high school. We’ve taken different paths in life, we disagree on many issues, but I don’t know how to get over this. It doesn’t seem like our differences justify what they did. Time will tell. It’s an odd situation. I’ll leave it at that.

I got my hair cut yesterday and then went over to a friend’s house where I enjoyed a nice glass of wine. I need to do that more often – both hang out with other women AND have a glass of wine. ;) It was very much needed.

We’re getting ready to head out of town – to Western Massachusetts primarily (though we hope to also spend a day in Boston) – for a week. We leave on Saturday, Sept. 24, and will be meeting my parents there. I hope to see lots of beautiful fall foliage. The yellow aspen are pretty here in CO, but it’s just not the same as all the vibrant colors out east. I’ve never been to MA before, Ava’s never seen an ocean, and Jody’s never been that far east, so it should be memorable for all. :)

If I don’t get a chance to write tomorrow (because I will be frantically packing), I hope you all stay safe and well and have a good week. And I hope and pray that Rita somehow slows down and doesn’t cause much damage. It’s so scary that it’s happening again.

I may blog from the road – Jody will have his laptop – but I think a vacation from the blog might be good for me as well. ;)

HNT # 3 – Hair!

Happy HNT (Half-Nekkid Thursday)! :-)

I got my hair cut yesterday and it is this week’s HNT pic. Not quite as short as I wanted to go, but I am still happy with how it turned out. As part of the haircut, I got a scalp and shoulder massage and – oh my gawd – it couldn’t have come at a better time. After the crappy headache Tuesday and some other stuff that’s been stressing me out, it was sooooo much needed. I thought I was going to melt right into the chair. In fact, it made it easy for me to practice some grounding meditation, which I was also in DESPERATE need of.

Here’s my attempt at some creativity for HNT. Like the pseudo elf ear? ;)

Not familiar with HNT? Check out the guidelines here. And then go see who else is half nekkid today over at Osbasso’s, where it all started.

Here’s one more hair pic (for those interested) taken from the front.

Cheers! :)
