Happy Friday! I’m taking a break this week from my Fartlek Friday posts to share some updates over coffee. It’s been awhile since I did this, and I felt like I just needed to chat! I’m still drinking coffee at home, of course.
Back to the office
Well there is one exception to drinking coffee at home. I’ve been going back to the office 1-2 days a week. Last Monday was my first day back. Our staff is split into 2 groups, so half go in on Monday/Tuesday and half on Thursday/Friday. I really didn’t want to go back because we are still doing everything virtually, so I’m basically sitting in my cubicle wearing a mask on Microsoft Teams. But once I got back it wasn’t so bad.
My schedule will be all over the place for the next few months. I’m looking forward to eventually getting back to a regular routine. But who knows when that will happen.
Getting my hair cut
Last week I finally got my hair cut after almost 2 years. I really needed one before COVID happened, and then I didn’t feel comfortable going. Once I realized I wasn’t going anywhere or seeing anyone, I really didn’t worry about it. But then it got BAD. It would take forever to comb or brush it. It never looked decent. I trimmed it on my own a few times which probably made it worse.
When I got it cut I said I didnt really care how short it went as long as I could still wear it in a ponytail. Since I was cutting so much off I decided to donate it. I chose Children with Hair Loss because they donate all their hair, they accept donations as short as 8 inches (compared to other places that ask for 10 inches) and they are ok with a little bit of coloring. I haven’t had my hair highlighted in 2 years but I wasn’t sure if it would be as issue. Even though I donated about 10-12 inches I know some of it may be damaged and they made need to trim some of it off.
I was pretty lucky to get my vaccine so easily through work. My parents had said how hard it was to get one for my dad who is eligible. Last week I decided to do some research. I joined a Facebook group and started getting alerts on Twitter. This process is a full time job! I was somehow able to get him an appointment pretty quickly, but its crazy what people are going though. And the guidelines are so unclear, its such a mess.
I’ve mentioned this before, but Grayson’s sleep has been awful lately. I hope by the time I post this it gets better. He’s skipping naps or taking hours to fall asleep. Waking at 5am or earlier. Taking a long time to fall asleep at night. When I go in, he basically tells me to get out, lol. Like he knows he is tired and just can’t fall asleep. I’m going to blame teething and call it a sleep regression, and keep crossing my fingers that it passes quickly.
Brooks Glycerin 19
Recently Brooks sent the Run Happy Team a pair of the new Glycerin 19s to try. They are so comfortable! Last year when I got to try the 18s I fell in love, after never trying them before. I bought my second pair last fall. I never thought I liked a cushioned shoe but these have really changed my mind.
Still drinking coffee at home
Other than that, there’s not much new going on. For the most part I’m still drinking coffee at home. I actually haven’t bought a coffee since before last March! I’ve definitely saved money on that and getting my nails done. However, I’ve probably made up for it in Amazon purchases.
If you were working from home this year, have you gone back to the office at all?
What was the longest amount of time you went without a haircut?
Have you heard about vaccine chasers?
