My aunt was hoping for a before and after shot of Allan's haircut. I think the last time he got it cut was when he was home on spring break.
The lady cutting his hair at the barber shop told him that it's a good thing they don't charge by weight. As for Brian, I told him that I don't mind if he wants to grow it out, but that I'd like it to be styled and trimmed up a bit. He had his heart set on growing the back longer, but wanted it cut above his ears on the side. I told him to Google mullet images, and he had a quick change of heart.
The barber shop is next door to Gus's, thus the breadsticks.
I loved my five days off. While much of it was spent battling a sinus infection, driving Allan to and from Big Rapids, and shuttling kids to appointments and whatnot, I was able to accomplish a bit of online shopping and got my desk in order. Long overdue. I found a lot of July, August, and back to school at the bottom of the piles.I now feel prepared to tackle the next three busy weeks before our next robotic competition.
Still loving Mondays, I woke up this morning ready to hit the ground running. The others, not so much. Greg overslept his alarm by well over an hour, Brian has a few sinus like symptoms that had him grumbling and Wendy claimed this month to be the worst as she was printing off homework three minutes after her brother left for the bus stop.
I spent yesterday morning driving Allan back to school. We got an early start so as to get him home in time for him to get some assignments completed before today, and I beat most of the holiday/hunting traffic. Home, I took a nice long Sunday afternoon nap before getting started on writing out some Christmas cards.
This week is another full one -
- swim lessons for Mark
- diving practice for Brian
- Robotics for three of us
- a team field trip to Kawasaki
- physical therapy for Brian x 3
(his hypermobility is factoring in to his diving - doing some strengthening and reintroducing daily exercises at home)
- and more
Time to get busy with it.
