Day 9 Good Surprises

I don't usually like surprises.  Either they turn into a negative or they just don't live up to the anticipation.

The day started with dropping off Random at the bus stop,  which is 3 miles from our house in case your wondering why I drive him.  Then a treat of breakfast at this little restaurant that I recently found and adore, where I was surprised to notice that the owner/waitress remembered that I preferred tea over coffee.  Nice surprise.

Then I went to get my haircut.  This is usually a huge production for me because I never know what I want.  6 months ago I went with a pixie cut. Now I'm growing it out and it's at that awkward stage.  Surprisingly the hairdresser knew exactly how to cut it so that it doesn't look awful while I recover from my midlife crisis. Nice surprise.

I also needed to get my nails done. Of course I broke one that morning,  while below the spot where it could be trimmed. Turns out you can glue cracked nails.  I never would have thought of that.  Surprisingly,  I managed to not screw up my polish after I was done either. Nice surprise x2.

Then there was the meeting. The first ever spouses meeting.  This had the potential to become a serious knock down, drag out, no holds barred brawl. But it didn't.  We just talked. Like real, respectful human beings. I left with a feeling of hope. Maybe things will finally change. Really big surprise.
