A pretty productive day. :)  
I can't believe it, but I FINALLY made an appointment to get my hair done! :) If you've been reading my journal for a while you'll know that I absolutely HATE getting my hair done and it's almost like pulling teeth to get to me visit my hairdresser. The only time I'll endure it is if I have a big trip coming up (like NYC in a week) or I get SO disgusted with my hair that I just can't stand it anymore (like I am now!) So, I have an appointment this Saturday and I guess there's no backing out now... :P

I also made reservations today to board Sydney for our LA trip later this month. :( We really feel bad that we have to board her, but my in-laws, who usually watch Sydney during our trips will be out of town that week and can't dogsit like they usually do. It's not too bad though because the place where we take her is very clean and the staff there is wonderful.

When I called today, the girl taking my reservations asked me, "Is Sydney still 19 pounds?" I hemmed and hawed a bit before I admitted that she had gained a little bit of weight since then (not wanting to admit that she hadn't been 19 pounds for a couple of years). "It was holidays - they were bad for all of us!" I told the vet assistant. :P Not only was Sydney's weight gain a bit embarrassing to admit, but the boarding rate is based on the weight of the dog and it's going to end up costing us so much more to board her than it did before! Next time, we're definitely putting Sydney on a strict diet and exercise plan before we go away on our next trip! ;) ;)

And speaking of traveling and NYC, why is something fabulous like this happening on the evening of the day we're flying home? :( My NYC timing always stinks, I tell you! :P

I'd better run and grab a shower before I fall asleep on the keyboard... Hope you all have a nice evening. :)

Are you getting highlights again? They always look so pretty on you.

I'm glad that the place we board the huskies doesn't charge by the pound. LOL. Sasha almost outweighs me!

Thanks! I am planning on highlights again... I don't think I could ever go back to my natural color - it would look waaaay too dark and unnatural on me now! ;) I'm also thinking of cutting it short... How short will depend on how much courage I have when I get there. ;)

I'm not too sure why the kennel charges based on their weight. In any case, we're thankful we don't own a great dane! ;)

I LOVE NYC! I can never seem to get enough of it - every time I go there I feel like I don't have time to do half the things I want to. Have you been there before? You should definitely go! :)

Yes, that always is also my reason to visit the hairdresser. And that even if they never did something wrong with my hair. I wish I could see you after you visited your hairdresser. :)

Do you know why the boarding rate is based on the weight? From the home for animals where Monika's sister helps I know that they take ? (I don't know how many) euros/day.

I hope you had a nice day. :)

Big *hugs* to you Sheri

Ah, you're just like me, Sabine! :) I only end up going maybe twice a year... And my hairdresser will always scold me for cutting my own bangs in the interim. ;)

I'm not too sure why the borading place does that - I think it may have something to do with the size of the kennel that they keep Sydney in and the amount of food they feed her? I'm not too sure, though.

Big *HUGS* to you. I hope you're having a nice week. :)

I love getting my hair done! If my poor little hair (and my pocket book) could withstand it, it'd be done ALL THE TIME. What are you having done during your appt?

I'll probably get highlights again since I just can't see myself anymore with my natural dark, DARK brown hair (looking back at my old pictures, I can't believe my hair was ever that dark!!) :P Hopefully my hairdresser won't scold me too much for mot having gone in since July! :o

Gill and I also seem to have terrible luck with missing things in NYC like that! It's always the day before we get there, or the day after we leave or something. :)
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on January 5th, 2006 09:02 am (UTC)
It always seems to happen to me! :( The only thing that we actually didn't miss was Broadway Bares in 2004 - but we ended up leaving early because we got stuck in the back and couldn't see a thing!
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: (nyc) times squareaudienceawaits on January 5th, 2006 12:13 am (UTC)
Oh god, that always happens to us! Things always happen just as we're about to leave or the day after. It's so upsetting.. :(

*SIGH* Just once I'd love to be able to be there for one of those shows! :(

Sydney will be fine :) Abby and Bailey did well their first time. Hey, I just posted a little video of Abby if you wanna see it! :)
