You little piggies.. get your minds out of the gutter! I had today scheduled off since the beginning of the year. I wanted to be available if my niece needed any last minute things done. Turns out she had it all under control and I was the one who had last minute chores.
I had my hair appointment at noon. I had a few ideas of what I wanted to do, but when it comes to my hair I am so undecided. I like it longer for those lazy days.. I pull it up. I can leave it down either with my natural curl or straigthen it. Lately it's been up more then down. I got lazy all the way around.
So I sit in the chair to add a little color to cover the gray. Ok, lots of color to cover lots of gray. LOL As we discussed the hair style. I tell my hairdresser, 'Dawn, have your way with me.' So off she went with scissors and comb. I watched my curls fall to the floor. I have to think a good 6 inches came off. In the back even more. The wedge won out. It's not shaved in the back, but more stacked. But holy shit it is short. I haven't been this short in a very long time. No more pulling it up. I am hoping I can go curly or straight. If not I will go back and have it all taken off after the wedding.
It's a mess now so no pictures, but I will share I promise. I went and paid to have my nails polished. LOL I never do them. I don't even file them unless I absolutely have to. I walked in and told the guy what I wanted, a french manicure. He grabbed my hands and said my nails were too long. He rubbed, pulled, and twisted. He wanted to know what I did to get them so strong. I have no clue. So off came some of the nail and on went the polish. I'd never had that done before. Imagine that, at my age I've never gone to a salon to have my nails done. It was a treat and it was nice. I was amazed at how quickly they polished. Had I tried to get the white just on my tip I'd still be doing it. LOL
So tomorrow is the big day. I will get up and get to my nieces about 11ish. Just to be there for her while the girls get ready. Not to replace Mom. No one can do that. My sister was a gem, and it would be impossible to match her sensitivity, calmness, and love. Mass is at 1 and the reception at 6. In between we will do pictures and then I will go and have one printed to put in a frame. An arrangement made with her sister as a surprise, so SHHHHHHHH
It's been fairly nice today, but a bit windy. Tomorrow... oh they are calling for rain. Nasty rain. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, but I wish and hope it will hold off for a bit. Her plans are to have pictures done outside. Not sure what her alternative is but if it's raining we will find out, eh?
Either way, I know my sister will be smiling down with such pride. The day will be perfect, I know it. Maybe some tears, but we will get through it.
I know lots of folks out there changed their comment format. I find it difficult. Maybe it's me, but I get error messages several times before the comment actually goes. Oh well. I like the little picture/icons. It helps me figure out who is who when the name is the same. Again, I wanted to mention the email address in your profile. So many times I've gotten comments that I want to respond to but I have no email. So I end up going to that journal and answering the question. GRRRR it would be so much easier if the email was there. I hope those that haven't done it will reconsider.
To date I've heard nothing more about the alternate migration set up. I was told maybe by the beginning of the week. That is cutting it awful close, and I do hope it works. If not I will try removing tag requests and doing it the old way. I just hope they give me the time to do so.
My shoulder is a bit better. Still a bit sore when I move it 'this way', so I've decided not to move it like that :)
I have a ton of nervous/excited energy so I'm thinking when the reception starts things will all fall into place and all my little aches and pains will disappear.
Hope everyone is doing great and I will be around more.. promise
