I forgot to mention that I ran into Creepy Doctor the other day. Keegan and I were out for our walk when he drove by. He stopped and asked how we were doing. I was polite and then he told us to "take care." I bet he's dumb enough to think my neighbor didn't give me the heads up.
I am leaving work soon to go get my hair done. I am due for a trim and a touch up to the highlights. Darn stylist got me addicted to them. Now I am an expensive professional coloring junkie again.
