Today a couple of serendipitous things have happened.
First, a long, "lost" friend invited me for lunch (along with one of my other business partners). It was soooo good to see her.
You don't want me as a friend. Although I'll love you deeply and think about you all the time, I'll never call or write. Difficult to maintain a relationship like that. (Exception: one of my friends reads my blog and I read her blog and we stay in touch through comments. Works for me!)
Susan is one of my wackiest friends. She laughs easily, is incredibly creative and a great, GREAT hairdresser. She invited me and my girl out to her house Friday (I'll gladly sacrifice the gas to drive that 30 minutes to her house.) I always get so inspired when I see her house. She is a great, but offbeat decorator. I'll try to get some pics and preserve that inspiration.
I've smoothly sailed through this morning's schedule even while accommodating a client who showed up and hour later than her scheduled time. I never told her differently. Even though she arrived about 10 minutes before my next appointment who actually did have an 11:30 appointment! Thank God for my assistant who shampooed while I cut.
As if that weren't enough, 4 pm rolled around and I went to the waiting area where I found one of my clients (not the one on my book, though) ready for her color appointment---which was 2 weeks ago. I'd been wondering if she had rescheduled but didn't see her on my book yet. In the spirit of "can do", I said come on back! My 4 o'clock appointment never showed, and when I got the bright idea to check the messages on the phone, I found she had canceled. (Thank you, Jesus for filling that gap!)
After all that craziness, I needed a little "therapy" and sent the assistant down the block to the new bakery for a red velvet cupcake and a cup of coffee.
Made it all better, it did.
