Bringing back big hair!

I know I have been really quiet lately. I guess it is a sign that my life has been a little dull lately. It hasn't felt that way to me, but I just didn't take time to sit down and write about it. 

Work is the same old, same old. Busy, busy, busy and for some reason, my boss thinks nothing of volunteering me for more projects just because he knows I will get them done faster than anyone else. Too bad none of them include a big, fat raise!

Since I have been swamped at work, what better time to take off 2 days to celebrate Valentine's Day with my Hubby. :-)

I started the day with a trip to the doctor to treat a sinus infection. I have had it for a couple of weeks, but kept hoping I really didn't. Am I the only one that does that? I was keeping it a bay with old formula sudafed and mucinex. (Not capitalized as they were both store brand. LOL!) But starting Sunday night, I was waking up around 4 or 5 am with vicious sinus headaches, so knew it was time for drugs. But I made myself wait until Thursday, since I already had it off.

I actually see a PA, who is out on maternity leave, so saw a different PA. We spent
most of the time talking about our families, as she is also a stepmom that married some kids. We got along very well. She wrote me prescriptions for antibiotics, low dosage steroids and I got a shot. WooHoo!

Then I went to my hairdresser for a haircut. I was ready to get rid of some hair and let him cut it shorter than he has in a LONG time. Plus, since we were discussing the fact that Big Hair is coming really, I have seen it in some hair product ads....he made my hair REALLY big. But I made him tame it down some before I left. It looked like this when I got home (I will never be able to get it to look this good again.):

Hubby and I headed to the pizza buffet we like only to discover that it had moved....and no longer had a buffet! We were bummed. We ended up going to a chicken place. Then to the meat market to buy 15 lbs of ground beef to stock the freezer. It was a deal at $22. 

We are so romantic for Valentine's Day! LOL!

He DID give me candy and a sweet card and I got him candy and 2 pair of Vday boxer shorts. It is a tradition for him to get boxers for every holiday that I can find them for.

Oh, and he bought us a cheesecake. Yummy! We didn't buy flowers this year. We got ground beef instead.

Like I said.....romantic.

Marilyn stole my Farrah comment. Your hair looks very pretty.

I'd rather get ground beef than roses any ol' day. :)

My hair is not as Farrah today. LOL

I like the ground beef instead of flowers. That would make my heart swoon.
And OMG, I'm loving that hair! I swear you two are getting younger. No really. So what are you doing to reverse the aging process?

Frances said...

SonyaAnn, I WISH I was getting younger. I feel really old some days. But other days, like a kid.

Hubby and I don't want to grow up, so maybe that is the secret. LOL!

I'm aging like milk. I think once the kids are gone we can revert. Well that's what I'm hoping for.
