Patience is something that you have, that you don’t have, that you are constantly trying to obtain or better yet, realizing what it takes to extend the length of it in your own mind! Let it be from the mice running around the office, to understanding the leadership abilities of some, or the incompetence when it comes to splicing together internet cable lines that were inadvertently cut!! Yes, for a whopping eight days, internet was down here at our compound — not the gvt. internet, only for all the folks in their private quarters. SO, do you go into the office at night, put your feet up and try to ignore the sounds of little feet scurrying about while avoiding the peanut butter filled traps, or breathe deeply and know that some day soon I’ll be able to update my blog in the privacy of my own room? I chose the latter and am happy to report that the internet is now up and working 🙂
There are many changes taking place here around the compound and one of those is the addition of a beauty shop! Yes, a beauty shop that offers mani/pedis — for a whole 20 bucks for both, more if separate; massages, facials, hair cuts, hair coloring/highlights (and boy do I need some to hide some grey but am a bit apprehensive), eye brow shaping — not with wax, but string — 5 bucks! I have to say that I believe I lost a pound when I went and had my caterpillars tamed! Francine says they look nice and I too think so but they are a bit too thin. After talking about the string and wondering if there was anything tacky on it to stick to the eyebrow hairs or does the string just rip the hair out of its follicles, we both decided that yep they are a bit thin for my face. For now, glad to have lost a pound of eyebrow hair and for the cheapest I have ever paid to have them maintained — 5 bucks!!
