Sunshine and Highlights

It's been like three days in a row, maybe four, of perpetual sunshine. I am coming up from the dirt, peeking above the soil, starting to bloom. Feeling better. Feeling pink and yellow and fuschia. Not feeling sad. Walking outside. Feeling awakened, alive. Smiling at freaking geese. Yes, the geese.

That's the sunshine part.

The hightlights. I went to the salon last night and while I was waiting I haphazardly glanced at the counter where there are usually pitchers of lemonade and ice-cold water. My gal pal, and colorist extraordinaire, Amanda, walks over just as my eyes lock on the most beautiful sight ever seen on the counter.

"You have WINE?"

"Yeah, you want a glass?"

"Hell yeah!"

I've been going to this salon for over a year, and I had no idea they had wine. And that I could drink it. For free. As much as I wanted to.

Free wine.
Some sunshine.
New highlights.

That's all it took, and I am back to myself.

Of course, I ain't throwing out my Xanax yet.

Hey, can I go to that salon, too?! That rocks!

We'll have to have some wine at our conference. Some meaning lots. :)

I am going to tell my hair salon to start serving wine. Enough of this coffee and water BS.

I guess that means you're gonna get a haircut more often, huh. Glad SOMEONE's getting some sunshine! It's raining over here - of all places!

here's a script for you....see a psychiatrist. Xanax and alcohol...hmm not the best message to send out to the cyber world.
I have read your blog for a while and I'll have to say, you really need some help. Your blogs have been extremely negative and to be frank, depressing. I use to love your blog but now can't stand to hear the complaining. "change the channel?" Well I am right...now...

First time at your blog, followed a winding road of blogstops to get here, where I was briefly, but satisfactoryly <----always wanted to use that word on a blog -entertained.

Oh thank you Davyd! Nothing wrong with being briefly satisfied!
