My Hair May LOOK Brown...

Hello!  First of all, thank you to everyone for all of your sweet comments, texts, homing pigeons, etc. about my new brown hair.  I really like it.  It is funny -- people are either totally shocked by it, or they completely ignore the fact that my hair is a different color.  I guess they are going by the old saying of "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all."

Anyway, as my title states, my hair may look brown, but I am still totally a blond.  I have pulled some really stupid moves since we got home from Peter Island, and I could just kick myself when I do stupid stuff. 

The really big one is I completely forgot to show up for jury duty last week!  I didn't realize it until last weekend, and when I did, I had that horrible, sinking feeling settle into my stomach like I was going to get into trouble.  I called first thing Monday morning, and the lady who answered the phone told me that I would be visited by a Sheriff's Deputy who would serve me with a subpoena to appear in court next Monday to explain to the judge why I didn't show up -- yikes!  Those of you who know me in real life know that this would be my worst nightmare -- being the put on the spot, in the center of attention, for something I did wrong?!?!  No, thank you!!!  As of this morning when I left for work, I had yet to see said subpoena.  Why hasn't it shown up?  Did that lady know what she was talking about?  Can the Sheriff's Deputy not find our house?? (I know we live in the boonies, but that is a scary thought if we ever had an emergency...)  Now I am wondering if I should call back.  I am definitely not begging to go to court, but I don't want to fail to appear again.  Ugh!  Stupid, stupid Christie!!!

The second thing I did was show up to drop off the girls at ballet Tuesday ready to buy tickets to their Christmas recital only to see that all tickets for both shows (yes, they have to dance two nights) were sold out.  I thought they went on sale this week, but they went on sale last week.  So I am sitting there thinking that I am going to have to bring the girls to rehearsals, bring the to the recitals two nights, and not even get to watch them?!?!  Thankfully for me, the teacher had two tickets for each night saved for someone else who already had tickets and was willing to sell them to me, and I was able to scrounge up another ticket for the first night.  So now I just have to figure out who is going to use those tickets.  And, evidently I wasn't the only parent who didn't get tickets -- some parents got more then their allotted amount, and the theater is really small -- so now the teacher has added a third show that all dancers must attend.  Shoot me now. color?  Brown.  Common sense?  Blond.  Definitely blond.
