That went well

I had brunch today with my friend Kathy to celebrate her birthday. Before the meal, we went to church together, where she was surprised to see her name in the bulletin. The flowers at the chalice table (the pink ones) were provided by me in on honor of her birthday. This made her very happy.

Kathy and I have had a rough couple years. But she has worked very hard to get back on my good side and I can't help but be moved by that. And I respect the decades and decades that we have invested in one another. But I've learned that a couple hours together every few months is the way for us to go.

I'm also happy to report that my new hair cut looked okay this morning. I woke up this morning, felt how short my hair was on the left side, and thought, "Oh, shit, I really did do that, didn't I?" But I like it. I'm glad I mixed it up a little.

Saturday I changed my hair. Just the cut, not the color. I hope that Sunday morning I can recreate the look. That's always the concern when you change your style, isn't it? And how will it look when it starts to grow out?

Oh, Gal, calm down. It's just hair.
