What A Week!

I started school on Tuesday and it was great!!!

My instructors are amazing and I have a small we'll get lots of one on one instruction!! We learned our first cut on Wednesday...and when I say cut, I mean trim. It took me a while to get it done so I didn't finish it until Thursday. We are working on mannequin heads right now and they start out with pretty long hair, so we worked on trimming it and making it an even length. We trimmed it 3 times this week! Yesterday was the last trim and I did pretty well! My instructor said that he's impressed with all of us because he hasn't had any major length issues to correct. He checks our balance on every section before we can move to the next. I'm posting pictures of one of the trims from this week. We are learning a new cut next week...I'll post more pictures then.

In other brother and sister in law are having a boy!!! I will have 3 nephews now!!! I'm pretty excited about that!

Anyway, the first week of school was was the best decision ever!!! I hope you all have a great Christmas...I'll post some more pics as I get them. I want to document my progress. I hope you enjoy!

Peace! :)

Lucky Number 7

So I have finished reading another book!! I finished the Mitch Albom book For One More Day. It was another easy read and a great story. I have already started reading Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister but haven't gotten far enough into it to I'll let you know later!

This has been such a relaxing week for me! As you last day at the bank was last Friday. I have been a different person since then. Even though the weather over the weekend was horrible and we lost power for a day and a was still so great to not have to worry about making it to work. I just sat and played card games with my mom and did a whole lot of nothing! I probably should have tried to find a job, but I think I've found something that I can do from home and set my own schedule. Tomorrow I will be spending some time doing the training for that. I start class on Tuesday!!! YIPPEE!!!! I can't wait!!!!

In other news, my brother and his wife find out tomorrow if they are having a boy or a girl...I soooo can't wait for that!!!

Anyway, that's really all for now....I'm sleepy and need to get to bed. I've got a lot of sitting in front of the computer to do tomorrow!

Peace :)

I am officially unemployed!!!! To some, that might sound a little odd...but to me it makes soooo much sense! Just ask me about the last few months...then you'll understand.

My last day was pretty uneventful. We were busy, so that made the time go by very quickly!! I was kind of upset that I didn't get a little bit of a party or something. I mean, I've only been with this company for 3 years. I had a friend who transferred and got a cake and all kinds of hoopla! I wasn't really expecting anything, but it would have been nice. But whatever!!! I don't have to see any of those people again if I don't want to...and that's nice! I can't explain the relief I felt when I left there this evening!!! I didn't really even say goodbye to anyone....I just bolted out the door to get to my small group Christmas party!! I was scheduled to work until 7 tonight, but I got to leave at 6 and my party was at I had to hurry!!!

My Christmas party was super fun!! We had great food, went to see the lights in Yukon and played Dirty Santa. Jason and I totally kicked butt!!! We had numbers at the end and had some good items to choose from. I stole some Starbucks coffee grounds and flavored syrups from Aaron & Christina (sorry!). Jason opened up a Japanese tea set. The tea set got stolen from him and he stole my coffee. Well, I stole the tea set and we traded I got my coffee back and he got his tea set back!!! It was soooo great!!! We felt kinda bad....but then realized that the name of the game is "Dirty" Santa. It was a great time tonight and I absolutely love my small group!!! They are all fantastic people and I'm so happy to call them my friends!

Well, I should go to bed now. I've got a busy day tomorrow! Good night!

Peace :)

What a week!!!

I'm ready for my last week...that's all I'm sayin about that!!

I went to Target on Friday night and bought 2 books and 2 dvds that I'm very excited about!!! I haven't started the books, but I've already watched one of the dvds and am currently watching the other! The dvds are the Ellen Degeneres HBO special "Here and Now." If you haven't seen should! It's so stinkin funny!!! The other dvd is The Office Season 1. It's ok....a lot of the story lines are just like the British version...and I like the British version better. Maybe that's just because I saw it first. Anyway, I think that once I get to season 3 it will be better, because I'm pretty sure that the British version only ran for 2 seasons.

Anyway, the books that I purchased are For One More Day by Mitch Albom and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister by Gregory Maguire. I bought the Mitch Albom book because I've read 2 of his already and they were very easy reads and I enjoyed them quite a bit. The Gregory Maguire book I bought for the same reason. He is the author of Wicked and Son of a Witch. I loved these books. They were pretty difficult to read, but I loved them!!! I'm very excited to get to reading. I think I'll start with the Albom book because I know I'll finish it pretty quickly. It will probably take a little more time to get through the Maguire book and I'd like to get one more book read before I start school in 2 weeks!!!!

Anyway...that's all for now. Pray for me this next week. I'm so ready to be done with my job...I was really wishing that Friday had been my last day. It was a rough day! Also pray that I find a job soon...because after this Friday....I will be unemployed....and that makes me nervous.

Peace :)
