Just when I think my life could get couldn't get crazier, it did. I think I'm getting a ulcer. To make a long story short...the trial date is set, and I'm not sure I will be there for the verdit due to my other trip over lapping.

I don't want to cancel my trip, but I think I should be at the trial till the end...

no time

So I'm running out of time to get ready for my trips...I have been so involuded in getting things ready I didn't even notice that my girls are out of food. Yup how is that for craziness I didn't notice that my little furry friends were out of food - not just running low I'm down to 3 kibbles. Time to move the pet store up on the list of things to do.

Not to mention I'm out of cherry juice - I could use a good night sleep and running very low on my own food.

This craziness is almost done - then time to get away from it all. I do mean get away from it all.

lately I have been drinking a couple ounces of Tart Cherry Juice before going to bed. Why you ask? Well it is suppose to boost your melatonin and help you sleep better.

My findings are this...I fall asleep really fast and stay away asleep. (that is unless there is a noise outside that the dogs hear) I wake up in the mornings and feel like I blacked out or the night only lasted a hour or so. I can't explain it but it works. I can't wait to see if it works in the summer when it is brighter out.

The only thing is you need to drink TART cherry juice - regular juice I guess doesn't work - according to Dr. Oz. I get mine at whole foods - give it a try if you want some ZZZZZ's

Today I get a new toilet! how fun is that. I'm also getting my washer fixed!! Yesterday I had my taxes started but not done yet...For fun I got to see the Bodeans at the new Guthrie Theater - had great seats and they played all there old stuff I love - actually I might have worn out there CD over the years.

I can fit a couple more things into my day if anyone is free - I really don't need to sleep.

I'm still getting ready for all the trips coming up - hence the fix of everything in the house for the dog sitters :)

OHHH I also have the pugs again but they are going home today.

So I have not had much luck ever finding someone that I thought was good to color or cut my hair. If I did find someone it has been in another city and costly.

Here is a brief history…I have only had issue in Minneapolis come to think about it…in the early 90’s I found a great person, however that only last a couple times she was going to school to become an accountant.

Then in 2000 when I moved back to mpls I actually flew back and forth to Chicago to get my hair done – my neighbors sister would do my hair some time along with Laura a friend of Jodi’s.

Then I finally found Richard. I really like going to see Richard however sometime my hair was white not blonde.

AHH finding a stylist in Brussels. This was not as hard as you would think. I went to a chain hair salon based in England. I had an ok girl do my color then one day while Joe was getting his haircut a nice Swedish lady said there is an American here that does color. After that I switch to her – she was actually from Minneapolis and married a Belgian. How crazy is that.

For cutting both Joe and I loved crazy Sebastian. We nicknamed him Edward scissor hands. He cut so fast and would twist his hand upside down. We also would have to stand up most of the time and then the other part he would sit on a stool and zoom around us with a possessed look in his eyes.

He however he had a lot of issues going on. One being that he thought it was too hot in the summer in Brussels and couldn’t sleep at night. Another thing that happened is that he broke his wrist one day (not sure what happened) and had a cast on it for a long time. Both of these issues caused his to call in sick a lot…finally he got fired. He was ok with that – he wanted to move somewhere else anyway.

After this whole mess I tried a salon that was the “royal” hairstylist. Meaning the Royal family got their hair done at this spot. It was good but then we moved…

To make a long story shorter…I think I found a great person now to do my hair.

His name is Tony he was born and raised in LA. He worked in Beverly Hills at Fredrick Fecki (spelling). Also did hair for Grey’s Anatomy and CSI. The person I was most impressed with was that he did Bridgett’s hair from the girls next door – you know the playboy bunny. He said his biggest regret is not going to a party at the mansion. (He is gay)

How did he end up here…well he had some clients that would fly out there then they flew him here and his base started to grew so much and he was getting sick of the scene in LA that he decided to open a salon here 4 years ago.

Did I mention my hair looks really good.

march 15

AHHH today i brought some friends to the airport at 4 AM. The girls were happy to be up early however I was not.

Today day is Joe's birthday and they are also going to court again today to see if they can set a date to go to court.

I'm also going to try another colorist again today...wish me luck that this is the one! I'm going to be on a black list of hair stylist pretty soon.

Also can some one come clean my house it got out of control some how...

March 10, 2011

up too...

Last weekend I deep cleaned my house - you would have thought that Joe himself clean it that is how clean it was. Then I had an awesome dinner with Jenn & Todd.

Sunday my parents came to visit - they are leaving today. The girls of course are very happy to see grandma.

Last week I went to see a ear, nose & throat doc that sent me to a speech therapist which I saw her yesterday and I read my medical records - upside down and the ear, nose & throat doc said that she is sure I have an eating disorder but sees no record of it in my file and is wondering what is going on! Really I thought I was done with these kind of doctors!!!!

Speaking of doctors one of my favorites took a teaching job and broke the news to me on sad. The good news is that his best friend is taking over his practice and I will meet him next Monday. I hope he is as good as him...(it is my acupuncturist)

The other thing is Joe's mom called last night and wants to see our photos from Europe again and hear the stories. Well if she could have cared the first time around she would have listened and paid attention. I don't want to have to do that again!!!!!!!!
