When I get in a melancholy mood like I am this week (because of the whole job thing), I want to make changes.  I want to do something different.  I’ve thought of taking a trip by myself to Dallas to ride rollercoasters.  I was going to have Josh drive up and join me, but he has to work on Saturday.  So then I thought I should go shopping but I have no idea what to shop for.  So I decided to get my hair cut.  It’s been at that medium in-between stage where it is difficult to style, gets too frizzy, and is just blah most of the time.  So today I called and got an appointment for 5:30 and had most of my hair chopped off.  I haven’t had short hair since I first started blogging – gee, that’s a long time ago.  Seven years.  But I like the hair.  I think it suits me and makes me look younger.  My face has slimmed a little since losing weight so I think the short hair works and perhaps even helps make it look even more slim.  So that’s my big change in the midst of my personal crisis.  I’ll try to get a picture up soon. 

Other than that – nothing new here.  Just slugging away at school.  My English students are presenting their poetry projects which I’ve been enjoying.  Speech students are writing their first speech.  Don’t ask about yearbook.  That is the one thing that I don’t want to do next year.  As much as I like the creative process of creating a yearbook, my heart just isn’t in it any more. 

Oh, in my fit of depression at the beginning of the week I signed up to teach a week of summer school.  It’s not really teaching though.  It’s credit recovery for students that failed.  I basically babysit and make sure they get work done to bring their grade up to passing.  It is supposed to be two weeks but I can only do the first week because I’ll be going to the national speech tournament the second week.  But I think the pay is $100 a day so that will be some nice extra money. 

I need to head to the choir rehearsal so I’m out of here.

Blessings and hugs Annabell. Can't wait to see the new 'do'.
