huzzah!

Today is over! I think this was one of the more draining days of my time here. We asked for $95,000 from the United Way today and I had to make sure the powerpoint went how it was supposed to go and make sure that my boss didn't freak out too much. Overall I think the whole thing went well and I was really really really proud of our adults in the program for being brave enough to all talk to the group. They were very nervous and it showed, but they did it without a major breakdown. Now that that is over, things will be back to normal, and by normal I mean crazy. Haha.

I mentioned in my last blog something about getting my hair cut.... now if you know me at all this is a task in and of itself. I freak out about it, stress over it, don't know what to tell the stylist, and usually try to back out a few times. Ok so that happened the first and only time I had my hair cut. This time was a little less over the top as I just stressed a bit but didn't try backing out. I guess I was just ready for a change. Tracy made Christy promise to take pictures as she was with for moral support and also a haircut. :-) So without further stalling, the anticipation I'm sure is mounting and you would like to see the new and improved Laura. :-)
Unfortunately these pictures turned out pretty dark, but hopefully you can see what's up with them if you make them big. So go ahead give them a click!

Before: The look of apprehension and a little excitement... and boy my hair was a lot longer than I thought.



















During... Valerie at Laru Ni Hati cutting my hair. Christy had the biggest smile on her face the whole time cause I basically just said... drastic. Ha.




















The back. Those curls are insane.




















The finished product. I wish this picture were better, but well, it is short. Trust me.

Laura,
Though I haven't seen you in person yet - wow! Look at that hair! Christy said you were really excited last night...you look great!
I also want to add that you did a fantabulous job on the powerpoint presentation last night!!! So much time, thought and energy went into it and I want you to know I very much appreciate it- and not only for the outcome. Your steadiness, humor and ability to be flexible helped keep me sane through the whole UW process. You are so gifted in many ways and I am very glad you were sent here!
Tracy
