Haircut Fiasco

I have wanted pink or purple highlights for a while. I decided to get
purple highlights after I graduated from nursing school. I also
convinced Matt to quit going to Great Clips and get a good haircut. I
made an appointment for today for both of us. I was to get my
highlights and a trim and Matt needed a cut. We showed up 5 minutes
early, but my hair lady wasn't there. She actually never showed up.

I was a bit annoyed, but not too much so. This other lady volunteered
to take care of us. We agreed, butit was a bad idea. She cut someone
else hair before she got to us. This guy was a walk in and she said it
would take 15 minutes. 45 minutes later she was ready for me. She did
a good job on me as well as Matt but she wasn't very nice. I have been
going to that salon since it first opened and I have always brought
Will. She made it clear that Will wasn't welcome. She also acted like
we were an inconvienience to her, me especially. I was very offended
at her attitude. She also charged me twice as much as Sarai, the owner
of the salon, would have charged me. I was pissed off by the time I

Matts hair looks great. My hair is shorter than I would like but
whatever. I wanted a more shocking purple than I got. She bleached
some of it, making it bright, but not all of it. I wanted it all
bleached. Oh well. In six weeks I will go to Sarai and get her to fix
it. The lady today said that a purple touch up was included in the
outrageous price, but I had to come back to see her. Fat chance. Ain't
gonna happen. Next time Sarai isn't there, I will reschedule rather
than go back to her. I promise I have learned my lesson.

I cannot believe how tired I have been. I know this isn't a very exciting subject, but it's what i've got. I started working night shift last week and I worked Mon-Wed and then had 7 days off. I go back to work tomorrow night. Thursday last week I slept about 4 hours during the day and I have been sleeping ever since. My friend Suzzanne says it's because I have a parasite growing inside of me, and that may be some of it, but it can't be the whole reason. I don't remember being this tired when I was pregnant with Will. Last night I went to bed at 1am after sleeping until noon and taking two naps. Today I slept til 1pm and then had two naps. Maybe that is my real problem, staying up late. I am getting older, you know. When I was younger I could stay up late and still get up and function the next day. Maybe pregnancy and age are conspiring against me, making me tired. Whatever it is, it sucks and I am sick and tired of being tired.

Happy Graduation To Me

So, as everyone knows, I graduated from nursing school. My mom wanted to get me something really nice for graduation. Below is a picture of my new graduation present.
Yes, feast your eyes on my new 2005 (ok, new to me) Honda Pilot 4WD SUV. It has leather seats and a sunroof. We are getting it from CarMax (a great place to buy a used car). I am SOOOOOOOOOOO excited. It seats 8! Am I the luckiest person ever or what? I'm just really spoiled. It's not my fault my parents only had one child. However, this will be the last thing my mom ever buys me.

I Get Paid For Nursing!

Now that school is over I don't seem to have anything to blog about. I guess I'll blog about work. I still can't believe they pay me to come here every day and chat with people. It's not as simple as that, but I have been having a good time. And the best part is I GET PAID. I got my first paycheck last Friday and boy was I excited. It was the biggest paycheck I have ever recieved, and I didn't work the full 72 hours and it didn't include my night shift differential because I hadn't started night shift yet. I paid off some medical bills that had been piling up and still have running around money left over. The crazy thing is that now that I have money, I can't think of anything I want or need.

The strangest thing about graduating from nursing school is that now I don't have to go to class several days a week. I get to go to the hospital to work (did I mention I get paid?) and then I get to go home. I don't have care plans to turn in or post-clinical conference to sit through. I don't have papers to write or exams to study for. Well, I still have to take my state boards, so technically I still have a test to study for.

I love my job and cannot believe that I get paid for it. It's sooooooo cool. That is all.
