We have the honor of sharing our home with two Cats. Their names are Midnight and Copper. The way I remember how old they are is by remembering what year I ‘got’ Scott! I ‘got’ that wonderful man in 2000 💘, ( that was a great year!!!). I got my cats soon thereafter , so that means they are about 13 years old.
Lately, as I’ve been ultra focused on all my plans for the next phase of my life, I realize, I need to try to remember to enjoy the moment! This moment……..right now! I was reminded of this the other day as I was working on my client, Barbara Spark’s hair. She was talking about how she often has to remind herself to stay focused on the moment. She said that she has to stop herself from obsessing over the past or the future or things she really has no control over and embrace the ‘moment’. I think it’s a really great thing to keep in mind. This is especially true for me as I prepare to move on to a new life.
Scott’s in the process of getting our house ready to sell by February or March of next year (2013). You may wonder,” what needs to be done?”. Well, mostly all the finish work. He needs to do a lot of woodwork, cabinetry , baseboards, the exterior of the house and detached cottage needs to be painted and our front walkway is getting stamped concrete, also the backyard needs to be seriously cleaned up and landscaped.
The end of my career as a hairdresser and business owner is fast approaching,(Sigh!) . Our goal date for leaving is June, 2013 . I find myself trying to imagine what that’s going to feel like. To leave my dear little salon for the last time. To do my last haircut. What will that last day of work be like? Will I be able to see through all my tears to give a good haircut? I wouldn’t want to be my last appointment on that day, that’s for sure! Yikes! 😁It’s really quite amazing to me, how important my relationships with all my clients (Friends!) have become. I even hesitate using the word ‘client’ because that term, to me, denotes a kind of an impersonal relationship and really doesn’t feel like an accurate term when I address you all.
