I'm a rambling gal...rambling...rambling

Anyone know what my blog title is referencing? You get kudos if you know!

Anyhow, so, I make all these changes to my blog and then end up finding I really have little inspiration for writing these days. I don't mean that in a negative sense at all. Not many new and exciting things really in our world. We've been busy, but it's been the normal day to day busy. I did see a friend post a "random thoughts" blog post today and was encouraging others to share as well, so, heck, why not. Here's what I have today:

Remember the great hair debate I was having with myself several months back? Well, after a few months of sticking with my current stylist at her new prices, I found myself debating again. And with my new budget conscious approach to life in 2011, I have been debating even more. She doesn't cut off that much when I go in thanks to my pretty easily maintained short style. The last several times she was late for my appointment - and yes I did complain and yes she did apologize, but it's continued to be a problem and that was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. So, I did some research and found a lovely salon that is still not too far away AND is $15 cheaper. I went last night, got a great haircut and service for my money and feel like it was the right thing to do at this point in time. This is not judging any of you who gave me input back when I asked for it - but for me and my short mane, this is what is going to work for now!

Today is Ash Wednesday and so begins Lent for another year. Once again this year I'm cleaning up my language and giving up the more colorful words that I use at times for Lent. I'm not a huge potty mouth all of the time, but let's face it, I live with Nate and I love him so, SO much, but he is a bad influence, ha ha. (Totally off topic, but I'm never offended when certain words spew out of his mouth either - certain people just really get away with it well, I had an uncle that was like that too). Anyway, I'm also striving for less complaining in general - always a battle for me. Trying to reflect and center myself in these next 40 days - though I'm on a pretty even keel right now, it can always get better.

With the beginning of Lent and preparing for Easter, I know this means spring is not far off and I have hope that we're finally turning the corner in terms of our weather. It was originally supposed to snow massive amounts today and it did not. We dodged a bullet and I am so thankful!

We spring forward this weekend for Daylights Savings Time. I do not like the spring forward, my biorhythms get pretty messed up - BUT - my favorite coffee shop offers free espresso shot upgrades, so, at least that is ONE thing to look forward to!

I had another follow up appt for my eyes - everything is still looking great, my vision improved from the day after the surgery. I can back off of my drops in another two weeks or so and start rubbing my eyes again. Been a bit of a challenge not to, but I've been doing pretty good with that! I don't have to go get checked again until May and then likely not for another year after that.

I moved into a new office space at work this week. Sixth time I've moved in three years. This is the nicest space I've had yet though and likely the most permanent space I'll have for some time to come as they prepare to remodel the clinic below us. Added perk, I'm on the third floor now, which I'm sure some people would look at like it's a pain, but I look at as extra exercise I'll be getting each day. Until we can start running, I'll take what I can get!

That's about all for today! So exciting I know!

Ramble posts are always nice in my book! It's a great way to get everyone up to speed on thoughts going through your head! Awesome about the new stylist. I hear you about spring has to be around the corner!
