I finished my last pre-vacation scrapbook job tonight. All told, since June 3rd, I've invoiced 538 pages. FIVE HUNDRED and THIRTY-EIGHT. No wonder I'm burned out. And yet, I still find it blissfully amazing that I get to make money doing this. :)
My house is a wreck. There's a thick layer of dust on EVERYthing from the construction upstairs. Speaking of that.... my handyman (Mr. Mark) finished the repair and texturing today. TOmorrow, we paint. Yay!
I got my hair cut today.... had about 2 inches chopped off. I hadn't had a cut since October, unless you count the 4 or 5 times I've trimmed my own bangs. But you shouldn't count that, 'cuz they looked like I trimmed them myself. I made an appointment two weeks ago for a cut and color. My auburn lowlights are long faded, and I really wanted to brighten them back up in time for my trip to Ireland. But.... I called and cancelled the appointment because I couln't see spending $140 when I'm supposed to be saving for my vacation. Today, while Madalyn was cutting my hair, the stylist at the station next to her was coloring a practice doll's hair. It was a gorgeous shade of red. Madalyn said to the trainee, "Good! You've mastered the dummy. Next, you need to do a live model." I volunteered, and she's coloring my hair tomorrow. FOR FREE. Madalyn will be right there beside her with my color card, making sure I don't end up orange or green or bald. All I have to pay for is the product, which will cost $15 at most. How much should I tip the trainee?? Should I tip Madalyn for overseeing the job? I'm so glad I cancelled that original appointment. :)
I've accomplished so much this past week, it's mind boggling. And yet...
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
