Haircut + Documentaries

Just jumping on quick before I dive into an afternoon of work. I took the morning off to get a haircut and color.

I might be weird, but I hate getting my hair done. I really do not enjoy it at all. It takes too long, it’s boring, I find sitting next to the stylist making small talk chit chat for 2+ hours to be kind of awkward and I dislike trying to fit the appointments into my schedule. Also, I find the whole thing to be ridiculously expensive and I practically break out in hives when I hand over my credit card. Wah wah wah. What a whiner I am today. 😆

(I DO like the end result, of having cleaned up hair…although I usually try to stretch it as long as humanly possible between appointments.)

Anyway! If that’s not a first world problem, I don’t know what is.

Changing subjects, I wanted to share about two documentaries I/we have watched this week.

  1. I watched an episode of this PBS documentary the other night before bed called Wonders of Mexico. IT WAS SO GOOD!!!

There are multiple episodes within the series and I’m dying to watch the others. It was so well done and included the most fascinating information. I watched the one called “Mountain Worlds” and I learned a ton. Highly recommend it!

This is the link to the Wisconsin PBS website where you could watch all of the episodes: https://www.pbs.org/show/wonders-mexico/

(It might be available elsewhere, too- not sure! I just stumbled across it on our local PBS station.)

2. Ethan has been working on a puzzle of the London cityscape this week while Asher has been at summer school. He’s been doing it at our bar, right outside my office, while watching the docuseries “72 Dangerous Places to Live” on Netflix. That one also seems super interesting!

He has been so sucked into it that I don’t think he is even making much progress on the puzzle, haha. Every time I peek out at him, his eyes are glued to the TV.

He has also been sitting in all sorts of weird positions while doing the puzzle. LOL!

more today

Have a great Friday!!

Thought of the Day:

Be grateful for life. Not everyone made it this far.

Daily Gratitude:

I am grateful for hair stylists that know how to cut hair and do highlights, because I would be lost without them on my own. (After complaining about this, I realize I really should be, and am, grateful for this. Please disregard the above first paragraph of this post. 😂 hahahaha!)

  1. love these pics of the boys. they made me smile… so like summer! relax, fun, spontaneous, just enjoy the freedom of time.
    I also hate hair coloring… takes forever and nothing to do. I’m dragging myself to color… I am actually someone to come to my home to do it so I can do something else meanwhile. what color did you pick? I also find it quite hard to choose. what if it doesn’t turn out good.

  2. I can’t say I dislike getting my hair done, but it isn’t relaxing for me. I agree, the whole process takes so long and I’m usually antsy to get out of there. I also try to wait as long as possible to go back. That being said, my hairdresser is on the affordable side and does a really good job. First world problems 100%!!

  3. I’m the opposite and LOVE getting my hair done. But I only get it done twice/year so feel ok about the cost. And the same girl has been doing my hair for over 10 years! So it’s like catching up with an old friend. I always bring a book to read while the color is processing.

    I will have to check out those documentaries – they sound right up our alley! And I would love to work on a puzzle! It’s just not practical in this stage of life with little kids around so I have been doing little jigsaw puzzles on my phone while watching tv in the evening with Phil. Doesn’t seem like something that would be enjoyable on a phone, but it is!

Leave a Comment! And, what are you grateful for??
