Paul will be busy grading papers and calculating percentages this weekend as report cards are being sent home on Monday. In a way it's difficult to believe that a quarter of the school year has already passed. Paul was just saying to me "what was I doing a year ago today?" and we realized that he was still a janitor at the church. A lot has changed in a relatively short amount of time.

So, I went to get my hair cut yesterday and left the salon looking like an early nineties version of Jennifer Aniston's character "Rachel" on that show Friends. Not exactly what I had in mind. So I decided to take the matter into my own hands and spent the evening hacking off all of those funky awful layers. And I have to say, I now know why kids like lopping off their own bangs. It is such a cool feeling to take a big section of hair and slice into it, and it makes the best sound! (sssh-YAWK! - if you can hear that in your head.) I got lots of compliments on my hair today too, so it must not look too shabby. You can judge for yourself, but take off your glasses first.

Have we become "cat people?"
