You know those old friends you reunite with after a long time without seeing each other and it feels like you were never apart? A blog is not that friend. I feel so awkward. Let me tell you a story. Once upon a time, a fair maiden set about writing a witty and captivating blog entry detailing the last 8 months that I have been absent from this venue. And lo, it was a beautiful thing. There were pictures! And words! Exclamation points flowed freely! And just as this amazing but still humble maiden went to press upon the "Publish" button, the computer was possessed by Satan and went totally berzerk and the blog was lost. And I searched my drafts folder and tried to find the blessed missive, but behold, it was gone forever.
And that is just the cherry on top of a slightly crap-tastic couple of days! Disclaimer: Let the record state that I am PMS-ing and having a lot of feelings, and I'm just gonna write them and you people can DEAL! Because it's my blog and I do what I want! If you don't like it, then you can watch this video of a dog with people hands eating at the table because I don't care who you are, that is just good comedy.
Things that are the worst:
article on the internet with a doggie IQ test. I tested Abby and let's just say that doggie MENSA won't be coming around this recruitment season. That wasn't really where I pictured this paragraph going, but I felt you should know. What I'm really getting at is once again that I exercise and I know it's good for me, but I wish I didn't have to actually do it.
3. Soaking wet jeans and shoes from melting snow, and the subsequent muddy floors that follow.
4. People that make hair appointments and then don't show up and don't call. Not cool, homie!
5. A random phone number keeps texting me and telling me that he's going to send me a picture of his willis and doodleberries (my words, not his). Please refrain.
6. At my new salon, there is a credit card machine there, and you have to go in after the payment has processed and add in the tip. But you only have a short window to do it, and if you forget to do it, you can never add that tip in. I robbed myself of a $20 tip and that makes me real sad. But the good news is that I got myself one of those neato square card readers for your phone, so problem solved. But I'm still sad about that 20 bucks.

That concludes my list of things that are the worst. By way of actual news of our lives, I motion that we just skip the last 8 months and dive right in to the present, and since this is my blog, the motion passes! Cary and I are both busily working away. Cary is home, which is always delightful. I just started at my little salon last week, and it's just dandy so far! Some days are super busy, and some are a little slow, but it's going better than I anticipated and I love being on my own! The actual business aspect gives me mild heart palpitations, but it's worth it to be my own boss. This very blog post is brought to you by that flexibility, in fact! I've really missed writing. Writing helps me process my life, the good stuff, the not-as-good stuff, and usually makes me laugh about it in the process. Now that my life is settling from the pure chaos that consumed it for the last few months, I'm hoping to get back into blogging. And if you're lucky, maybe I won't ever mention cervical mucous again. But no promises.
Happy Valentine's Day!! I will be spending mine eating truly obscene amounts of candy that I have been denying myself up to this point.
