Lauren's going back to school today, for her last few weeks before graduation. We took some time yesterday to get her a haircut and to go to lunch. It's not much, but it's the only time she really had free this whole week. And there's always something fun about some salon time, no matter who's in the chair. Our friend and neighbor, Kathleen Brennan, is more than just a terrific hair stylist. She's also a photographer, so it's a total experience to walk into her studio and see the new work hanging on the walls. You have to remember, I don't get out much. I'm so happy when I can get my hair cut and look at art too!
After Lauren was all beautified, we had some good Chinese food and just talked about nothing important. For me it's not the big parties that stand out as perfect memories, but these little times, just hanging out, that count the most. Pretty soon she'll be done with school and looking for a place of her own, rather than coming home. Of course she will. It's time for that. Still, I can't help but get a little misty, you know? More big changes. They just keep comin'...
And I want to wish a Super Happy Birthday to Susan!!! Cheers to you, my friend!!!
