I just wanted to do a little clean up while
I have nothing better to do I'm thinking about...
- New Year's Eve was fun! Sidnei's family came in
completely unexpectedfrom out of town, so we had a big churrasco. (Of course, it didnt' start until almost 11 PM. Now Sidnei knows not to make me wait so long to eat. I am quite grouchy when I got almost 12 hours without eating.) I sucessfully put myself in a red meat coma and promptly fell asleep just short of 3 AM. Everyone else made it until 430-5. Including my neighbors, the loudest of them all. Gracie survived all the fireworks..but just barely. I think we need to get her some medication...
- I did not make any resolutions. I just want this year to be happy. Full of happiness. That will take a little work on my part as I have been quite the complainer as of late. I'm working on it. But 2008-2009, we very much down with a little up. We need a year of up, I'm betting that this year is it!
- I got my hair cut. I showed the lady the picture. She did the exactly what I DIDN'T want. So that was fun. Basically I have a short bob now. I was NOT happy. On the upside I won't need to look for another crappy hair dresser for quite some time. In fact, I think I'll just wait it out until August when I'm planning to go home. That should give my locks some time to recover. There will be a picture one day. But probably with straight hair, because when my hair is straight it looks a little better...despite that it's not exactly even. When its curly, I look like a 10 year old girl. And every Brazilian within a 50 mile radius will tell me so.
- Tomorrow I am leaving for Belo Horizonte. With my MIL. By myself. Until Tuesday. I'm only slightly worried. And I am leaving Sidnei for the first time since I have arrived here, which I know doesn't sound like a big deal to most people. However after spending a year apart, it's causing me some slight anxiety. I just hope I have a good time. On the upside, I get to meet Corinne!! Hooray for a friend!
