Road Trip

Since I didn't post over the weekend, I'm playing catch-up a little bit today. I'll try to be relatively brief and only include the more interesting stuff....

I got my hair cut on this past Friday. One of my friends who's going to beauty school cut it for me. She cut off nearly 14 inches, so it was easily long enough to donate to Locks of Love (http://www.locksoflove.org). Now I'm re-learning how to take care of my short hair. I had to dig out my blow dryer again, and I need to put all of my pretty little clips and hair chop-sticks (and pencils, and paintbrushes) away.

Friday was also the beginning of a little weekend road trip. Jimmy (that's my boyfriend) and I made a nice big loop up through Missouri and Kansas to visit friends. We first stopped in Conception, MO to visit some friends who go to school (seminary) there. Our next stop was Manhattan (Kansas, the Little Apple, home of Kansas State University). While in Manhattan, we attended a friend's percussion recital, went to Mass at St. Isidore's, wandered around Aggieville, and spent time simply visiting with friends. Wichita, KS was our next (and quasi-unplanned) stop. We decided to stop there and visit people when we were driving south out of Manhattan; we made a few phone calls and surprised a few people, and it was fun to see everyone. Our final (and also even more quasi-unplanned) stop was in Stillwater, OK. As we were driving back home, we decided to take a little detour and go to Eskimo Joe's for supper. The trip was fun, but now I need to try to transition back into my regular week and weekend work schedule....

I managed to sleep in a bit this morning (in an attempt to catch up on the lost sleep from the weekend), but the rest of the day will be busy. I'm working all afternoon and then there's class in the evening. A typical Tuesday....

Wow, can't wait to see the haircut. Kelsi got hers cut last month and donated it to locksforlove also.

14 inches, huh? Mine's long enough to take that much off too. I'd love to see a pic since I haven't decided what to do with mine yet.
