This is Wednesday leaning out of her cat tree. She may look like just your average gray tabby cat, but she has many skills. Most of these skills, she uses for The Good. Okay, 'most' might be a slight exaggeration. Wednesday is a good little kitty, though, at heart. She loves her family, loves her sisters, loves annoying those sisters and she also loves to grant wishes. Every Wednesday morning, I will rub the side of the cat house and summon our magic cat!
My Wednesday Wishes for the week:
1) More time in a day! Just a few more hours should do it.
2) Venti Shaken Green Tea (iced) with two splendas! My newest obsession. My wish is that I will be able to recreate a fairly similar version here at home to save myself the $2.30 a day I would be willing to spend on it (but the hubby certainly isn't willing to let me spend on it).
3) Stunning hair color. We'll see how this works out. I have an appointment today for color, but my stylist fights me. For example, two months ago, I wanted to go red with copper highlights. He had done this for me a decade ago. He won't now. I get lectures. He reminded me how hard it was to maintain; how I whined and complained about how often I had to come in for touch-ups; how a mere eight weeks after he had colored it, I came in insisting to be blonde again at which point he had to strip the color out of my hair and it took my hair six months to recover and him at least eight months (he's very dramatic). He flat out refused. To make his point, he gave me a touch of copper highlights in my hair. He was right. It was gone in less than three weeks. My hair is thin. It doesn't hold color. I bring in pictures of styles I want and he laughs until he cries. Then he shows his employees and they laugh, though not as hard. My hair will never be thick. I get what I get and I love it. But trusting someone that completely is hard for me. He won't color my hair dark in the Summer. He will do it in the Fall. I have color in mind, but there is a chance what I think is stunning, he will think is 'tacky' and refuse to do it. He'll give me a less tacky variation. I can't fault him, though. There are so many times he has made me the talk of a party when I worked in television. I would go before the party and show up with a 'do that I didn't feel confident in until the first person gushed "OHMYGOD, I LOVE it!" His view is - if I don't look good, he doesn't look good. Which I get. But it doesn't mean that I always like it! So...stunning hair color of my choice (please please please).
What are your wishes this Wednesday? Remember if you can say "Wednesday Wishes Wisely" five times fast without messing up, you get an EXTRA wish!
