Literally--that's what I have! My grandmother used to say, "Don't ever get old." I used to reply that getting old was a heck of a lot better than the alternative. Today I'm not so sure. I did something to my neck! You know that feeling when you get the proverbial "crick" in your neck, well, my neck started feeling like that non stop sometime last night! I can hardly move! Hopefully some heat and muscle relaxants will take care of it. Bottom line--I need to get back to weekly massages. It was amazing how therapeutic they were. Speaking of therapeutic--I signed up for a free yoga class at the Yoga Center of Columbia. They offer free classes the first week of January so that you can try them out. I signed up for Gentle Yoga which is good for people with pain issues. It moves a little slower than Yoga 1 and individualizes instruction to each person's needs. If I like it then I will sign up for the session which goes until April. I think it will be good for me!
Meanwhile, I made my first New Year adjustment--I got a new "do!" I decided I needed to change my hair. I was actually tempted to go short again as I found some really neat cuts in a magazine. I found a photo of a longer heavily layered cut so I figured I'd try that. Cathy decided that it would do better in a blunt bob shape with the crown razored into heavy layers and heavy bangs. She also put a little more copper in the color. I wanted to have enough hair to be able to put it up when I want. I may go shorter in the spring, but I'm happy with what she did!
The hair took a large chunk out of my day. This evening DH and I went to the 2007 SAR Patriot's Ball. I had gone to Neiman's yesterday to find a new bustier to wear with my black silk evening skirt, but I had no luck so I wore the Nanette Lepore one that I wore last year. I wasn't in the mood to wear a gown. DH wore his Rev. War uniform since he is the fifer in the colorguard.
We had a good time though we did very little dancing since I could hardly move! That was a bummer. Tomorrow will be shopping and preparation for our holiday open house on Sunday!
Hopefully the rain we are having will turn to snow!
Bushism of the day:
"I've been to war. I've raised twins. If I had a choice, I'd rather go to war." —George W. Bush, Charleston, West Virginia, Jan. 27, 2002
The lump that usually appears on our bed, appeared on the sofa! I guess it beats getting black cat hair on the slipcover!
(Yes, there is a kitty there!)
