Steve took the kids up to the Creation festival in Washington this week, leaving me with way too much time to sit in a quiet home and think - very dangerous. Fortunately, the most extreme thing I've done in my first two days home alone is a haircut - the silence has not driven me mad quite yet! I do admit that I've been talking to the dog a lot, though, so perhaps my sanity level isn't quite as high as I give myself credit for. It's been a long time since I've had this much time all to myself and I'm determined to make the most of it, if only just to stave off the loneliness of an empty house.
I must say that I'm excited about the cut. Of course, this is the thinned, blow-dried, round-brushed, and flat-ironed version of my hair so it will never be this calm again (because you know that I do none of these things in my daily "beauty regimen" and we will use that term loosely when applied to me).
And to round out this "all about Jamie" post, check out my new headshot from work! I'm presenting at this year's user conference so they needed a nice photo for the conference materials. Although clearly taken pre-haircut, I have to say that it's a pretty darn cute picture. I didn't think that my Casual Friday jeans would show in the photo, though... oops! Oh well, it gives me a nice approachable look, right?
