Colored My Hair...

I walked to Walgreens this morning to get hair color so I could do my hair today. So yesterday I got my cut and today my color! (woo hoo)

It's not DRY, yet. But I've taken a picture of it wet...


If you CLICK the above image, you can see the larger version. It's not that much larger, as I took it with my iPhone...

Again, the WALK is a good thing -- and I'm determined to get more exercise going forward.

I also took SIX (count 'em -- six!!!) boxes to the Goodwill. Sister Sue and Nicole came by just past noon and took me shopping to Freddies to pick up a few things I really needed. Then we went to Starbucks in St. Johns and got coffee (Sue treated us all -- very nice!). After that she let me take a load to the Goodwill. I'm glad to get all that stuff out of the garage, I have to tell you...

If only I could pack up stuff on a daily or every-other-day basis -- and take a load every week! Well, that's probably unrealistic. But I really want to pare back around here. If we had less, it would be easier to take care of it all. I'm convinced of that. But it takes TIME to go through things. I need to get back to it!

I've started the garbage and recycling (it's garbage night -- but this isn't the week the actual garbage goes out), but need to go finish it.

I'm also fixing acorn squash for dinner. It was supposed to be stuffed, but it turns out we don't have the ingredient for that. Oh, we have it, mind you! There's a reason I didn't buy it while at the store today. But it turns out we have it at the BEACH HOUSE, and not here! (sigh) You'd think it wouldn't be that difficult to keep it straight, but it certainly is...

Marilyn and I skipped going shopping for our clothes for the Auction (which is TOMORROW NIGHT!!!) last night -- so we have to go tonight. Can you tell we're not excited to do that? Hahahahahahaha.

I (finally) got my appointment to see my doctor. I've been getting phone calls and letters asking me to come in. I can NOT go first to do the blood test, because there's no 'order' for one. WTF??? Really? They KNOW that's one of the main reasons I'm coming to see him! Why not let me get that out of the way before I come in? Well, the only morning appointment they had was on October 23 (Tuesday), at 9:00. And the other appointment was sooner, but at 5:00 in the evening! Considering I have to fast before the blood test, there's no way for me to do an appointment that's not at least before noon. Crazy, huh?

Next up I need to get in for an eye exam. Maybe I can set that up for next week...

I have a dentist appointment next Wednesday (October 17) at 2:00, as well. But I do need to take care of some of these health-related things. I tend to put them off forever. (The eye doctor is long overdue -- just like my doctor visit.)

Well, I should either go color my hair or work on the garbage and recycling. Or both! So I'm off... This is ridiculously LONG -- sorry about that!!!
