The State of the Blog

Coyer is coming along and I have finished a grand total of 2 (that's right, count them!) books thus far.
I will be participating in the Sharknado Read-A-Thon from July 7th - July 13. The criteria is to only read physical books. This will especially be a challenge because I greatly prefer ebooks, but I have a bit of a physical backlog from ARCs and gifts! (Plus I've added a couple of library books that I've had trouble getting the overdrive versions of purchased.)

I'm also going to attempt the 24in48 challenge. This fortunately falls on a weekend I had already requested off for other reasons. I will be honest and say I don't think I'll be able to make it to the full 24. Partly because of my current reading track record and partly because I do have a family event to attend on the 20th. (I may be able to squeeze some audiobooks in on the way up there and those count, so... hmmm.)

Life

.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.~*.*~.

Things have been pretty busy. Not particularly in a good way. I'm just trying to remind myself that it's temporary and the end is in sight.

At work we were given what will be our "set" schedules (barring vacations). I absolutely LOVE mine. Just 2 more weeks and no more schedule hell!

I finally got a hair cut. My last cut was a family-favor trim. It cut the ugly dead ends, but my hair still looked like kind of a mess. I have bangs again, which I like, but I don't love the overall shape of my hair, but it looks better than it did. And sometimes I do like it, but other times I think I should have gone shorter. I'm glad I sucked it up and went to a local hair salon because I found out there is tons of chlorine in the city water and part of why my hair looked so terrible was because I needed to be using a clarifying shampoo at least twice a month!

I also dyed it with box dye. It turned out different than I wanted, but it looks good. I've weirdly gotten many compliments on it.
I wanted it to be closer to my natural hair color (almost black), but sort of tinted purple so you'd see it in the light. Instead it's a color that is basically an unnatural dark auburn. It actually lightened my hair, though not drastically, which I haven't been able to do without bleach since Herbal Essences stopped making their hair dye.
