I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
I spent the last couple days taking care of a very sick kid. Apparently there's some type of summer stomach flu going around. I thought we were going to end up in the ER at one point, but he's doing much better now. Poor kid – it was a tough few days. He was really, really, sick. Please keep your fingers crossed I don't catch it this week as I get ready for, and depart to, New York.
The BlogHer conference is a Big Deal in the Internet world. A lot of women dress to impress. They're attending the conference looking for the biggest and best opportunities they can find.
Don't get me wrong, I like opportunities too. The car accident just changed my perspective a lot. Life is short and can change on a dime. I'm at a place in my life where it's also about having fun and, most importantly, being myself.
What do you think?
The purple will wash out in a few weeks and then I'll return to my normal blonde locks.
I have to say, I don't think there are any other women with purple hair around here. It isn't a popular look in the Money Town area. Most of the women where I live look a lot like The Real Housewives of Orange County. Oh wait, they ARE The Real Housewives of Orange County. How could I forget?
Is it any wonder I don't fit in?
On Sunday I ran a few errands and then stopped into a Money Town salon to get a pedicure. (The talons growing out of my feet were getting a little dangerous, and besides, I HAD to get purple toenail polish to match my purple hair, right?)
In any case, my purple hair caused quite a stir everywhere I went.
The thing about having purple hair, is – I keep forgetting I have it.
People stare at me and I think, "What are they staring at me for?"
Later, I catch a glimpse of my reflection in a window and think, "Ohhhh, THAT!"
It's become an interesting study in human nature. Some people stare, some comment, some send me scornful looks.
Hey you, Money Towners ….
Have a sense of humor!
Life is short … why not have some fun?!
