Wow, I guess it has been awhile since I've blogged. Too busy I guess. Had some DRAMA at the spa. People stealing. People being fired. Lori being hurt. Ralph being pissed. Emily picking up the pieces. Same ol' deal. Mom and dad are ooked and set to come up in August. so that gives me some thng to look forward to. I really needed something. I would look forward to my trips but i never know when those are. I just know I need to get away from that store for a few days. I have the Northwest show at the end of March, so I know we'll be going to that one. And then we ahve the West oast show n April. And the TMS confrence in May and Cosmoprof in Vegas in late June earlt July... So I have those to look forward to. And L.A. is in there somewhere. I am getting some cabin fever like no one's buisness right now, so I need out. Could be that I am getting burnt out too. either way a few days in Seattle will help. Hitssome clubs, do some shopping, and go to the show. Thats what I need. Now Lori just needs to come back and we can get out of here!

I guess I have been pretty lazy about blogging lately. Not so much lazy as nothing really new and exciting has happened. I'm actuallt getting a bit bored. Cabin fever maybe. It has been really nice this past week. In the thirties. It was nice to see the sun again. We did the bridal fair on Sunday. That was ok. YThere werent a lot of people, but it was a good test run for the Women's show in a month. They had a chocolate fountain. That was cool. You can rent a four teired fountain for $400. But it looks cool. And I also sampled some pretty awful cake. I know that I am spoiled, but COME ON! there was on place that had that nasty frosting thicker than the cake. Yuck. I tell you what mom could bank major cash up here for her cakes, given the competition and the prices they charge for crap. One lady was trying to sell me this cake size, and I'm thinkin, "You dont have any idea who you are talkin to." Dont tell me this $40 cake will only serve 25 people when I know I can get at least 36 pieces out of it. Stop tryin to over charge me, I'm not even interested in cake, I just wanted to try the chocolate fountain! Anyway, that is pretty much it. I am now a certified Pureologist for Pureology. Malu and I took an education seminar on the products, which I could have taught myself. I should just look into becoming an educator, but I dont have a license so I cant. Well, I could, but it would be harder for me to compete with licensed stylists. And it is for reasons such as that, that I should just appentice and get my license, just for creditials. I just dont want to take the boards and risk Mitch failing me and purpose. I know Lori wants me to do it. She wants me to be able to do make up applications and waxings legally, b ut I really dont want to take the test. I dont want to learn how to do roller set, and the proper way to roll a perm. I dont care, I dont want to DO hair, I just want people to see that I know what I'm talking about. Cuz I do. I do know but they always ask, "Atre you a stylist?" I have to ethically say no, and there goes some of my credibility. And dont think I havent thought about saying yes. SAometime s I want to just be like, "Yeah, I used tobut now I am more involved in the buisness part." But I cant bring myself to do it. But you know what, when it comes to hare care, I sometimes know MORE than stylists. Especially about Pureology which brings me full circle to why I should be an educator.
