Blarg. It’s one of those days. Grey, dreary and it’s that rotten time of the month so I am not feeling anywhere near hot. Or warm. Or whatever. Well, at least I am home now and I get to pay bills. Hurray! We got our escrow check, and … we owe $65.65. Whew, that is STILL better than the 400$ we had to pay the first year that we lived here. Still, I would much rather get a refund…but so it goes.
There, the bills are paid and the accounts are balanced. I always feel better when I get the first bill paying out of the way.
Pluto is a huge pain in the ass. He won’t stop licking his damn wound. We have been doing the skirt thing, which works if someone is around to watch him and make sure it doesn’t come off. But when I came home today, it was gone and his wound was bright red and bleeding again. Tim called and made a useless appointment to the vet for next Tuesday to take him in. Seriously, what are they going to do? Or tell us to do? The wrapping doesn’t work, the skirt has issues and he gets so stressed out with the collar. We just don’t know what the hell to do anymore, and I can’t even fathom would the vet would do or tell us to do. Yes, we also tried the bitter sprays and the invisible bandage — nothing. He’s never done this for a wound before, and we are at our wit’s end.
I guess I am just a “glass is dirty AND half empty” kind of gal today.
On the bright side — I did a little shopping therapy today. I had forgotten my cell phone at work, so I had to go back and get it after dropping off my time sheet, causing me to miss my bus and have a 1/2 hour to kill. So I stopped at Art Gecko to buy a bracelet I have had my eye on for a long time. While I was there I checked out the clearance and found a skirt I have wanted on sale for 50% off. It was the last one, and in my size, so I took it. I decided, why not. Especially since I was having a rotten day (but also was looking good — so my confidence was built up.) Yeah, you can feel crappy but still look good. So now I have this beautiful black, full skirt…oh it’s just gorgeous and feel almost a little too fancy for everyday wear – -even thought it’s cotten and could totally be everyday wear. It’s one of those article of clothing that when you see someone else wearing you think to yourself “God, I wish I could wear clothes like that all the time and just be free to look awesome and unique.” You know, the type — hair stylists, artists and workers of cute boutiques get away with it all the time. I am trying to convince myself that I can be more like that too.
I washed my hair last night and discovered this morning that Lowen was right, this is a hairdo that I will have to learn how to use products to make look really good. I am so glad that she gave me a few free products — because heaven knows I need them. What I also need is another lesson on how to do my hair. I am just not skilled at this having never done it my entire life. She did say it would take some practice though. Thank god for hair sticks in the meantime. Which, by the way, are impossible to find. I was thinking of my fantasy wish list today, and that is something I would always happily accept — hair sticks (as well as wysteria scented stuff, stationary stuff, food items and The War on Z book….).
There…all done. I am going to go and chill on the couch with some Christmas cards to work on.
