"We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are." - Anaïs Nin
I came across this quote twice today in two different books. I think the universe is trying to tell me something. Maybe, I'm not really a dork. It's just how I see things. Honestly, I think the evidence is weighted against that theory, in my case anyhow.
I was supposed to go to a Christmas party tonight with Kevin. I was really looking forward to it. I even bought a new top to wear. Did I go? Nope! Instead, I'm sitting here with a face that feels like it is on fire. You see, I went and had a facial done today. No big deal. At least not in the past when this woman has done it. Today, I had a horrible reaction to something she used on my face. I have allergies and very sensitive skin, especially on my face. I felt it the moment she put the toner on my face. It began burning like I had stuck my face in a bed of hot coals. I blew it off and said it must be the alcohol in the product. She put a lotion on afterward and it felt a bit better as she tortured me some more with hot wax and tweezers on my eyebrows. I came home and laid down for an hour so I would be rested up for tonight. I woke up at six to get ready and that's when I realized what a mistake I made in taking the cheap route. Never again. I am going to the full-fledged spas to get stuff like this done. It costs twice as much but the hell I'm going through tonight is not worth the savings.
Now, I'm wondering if I'm jinxed or something this month. And, I'm fearful. I have a perm scheduled for tomorrow. It's been years since I've had one done. But, my hair has grown quite a bit since I got it cut in October and I need to perk it up some. I'm going to the same woman who cut it then and she did a good job. So...here's hoping whatever is plaguing me will stop tonight. Or else, I might be writing tomorrow about how I have a pain in my back, my face is burning, and I'm bald. Yikes!
