oh so happy!

sorry to be mia again. we're in atlanta this week because hubby is best man in a wedding in south carolina this weekend, so we stopped off here. hubby get's his mommy fix, we get to see the family, they get to see us, and most importantly..... i got my hair done today!!!!! oh yeah baby!! i've been going to this particular hairdresser here in atlanta for about 18 years now. i know, i'm in northern california. yes, i would fly out here just to see her. yep. so i got my poor hair done today, and she had to snip, snip, but it still looks, and feels, fantastic!

we got here very early saturday morning after taking the red eye (an overnight flight) friday, and my body didn't handle the flight very well, so i'd been out of commission 'til yesterday really. there weatehr has been just awful! there were at least 4 tornado warnings today, and it's been raining since we've been here. poor ladybug. there's a pool in my sister in laws (sil) gated townhouse development, and ladybug has been begging to go swimming since we've been here.

i miss this town. i used to live here. for almost 8 years in the 90's. it's were i finished my degrees. met dear hubby. learned how to be me. glorious me. i loved this place. it holds very sweet spot in my heart. but it's not how it was anymore. it's changed so much. and i'm not sure if i like it. don't get me wrong. it's still HOTlanta! great night life, restaurants, shopping. for sure. but, so many people have come to town from all over, and it's just changed. and i don't it necessarily for the good.

i haven't had a chance to get out and explore my second home yet. i havn't been back for at least 2 years, which is a very long time for me. i used to come back 4-6 times a year. or more. so it was like i had never left. i lived in midtown. steps from peidmont park, and it was so ideal! i had a great apartment! the neighborhood was beautiful. all you had to do was open your windows in the spring to smell magnolia's, dogwoods, daffodils, and otther great smelling flora. then, in the fall, the leaves would turn golden brown and you'd think you're in vermont. and the rain! i loved it here!

well, i know i'm rambling on adn everything is disconnected. it has taken me 3 hours to write this due to major distractions - hillary clinton has been speaking, then i got a piece of cake, then ladybug came downstairs to entertain us. then i fussed at her to brush her teeth and go to bed! then, we had a small thundershower, which i just LOVE, so i stopped to take that in from out on the porch. plus, i'm in a fog myself. still trying to recover from the flight. it knocked me on my butt for some reason.

so, off i go to rest now. hopefully i can sweet talk hubby into driving me around tomorrow so i can see our city. he's a sweetheart. hey!! a dear hubby story.... he took me to my hairdresser in a driving rain storm (under a tornado watch-seriously!), then stayed there with me. yep. the whole time. chatted with the ladies a bit. helped my stylist, who owns the building too, with an unexpected minor repair til the repairman came out. how sweet is he?

i love me some him!

be well :)
