I am slowly but surely getting into the swing of things around here. I had my second week of our Esther bible study today. I am enjoying it more than I can say. I was never really able to take advantage of the studies at Frazer because I worked full time, so I have loved being a part of that here.
I also joined a group called Building Better Moms. I went yesterday to their luncheon. I was terrified walking in. Yes, me. My Mom said that she had never seen me so shy, but I was definitely intimidated. This was a well established group who had been friends for years, and it was still hard, but I made myself do it. And I had a great time.
We have had dinner with some co-workers of Robs, hung out with our friend Mary, and I had lunch with a dear friend from high school who lives in the area. So, things are falling into place.
I will say though that my hair is a mess. Even though life is calming down, my hair is acting up. All of this dry weather has made it more "static-clingy" than ever. I walk around KC like I just stuck my finger in a socket. I read online to use some leave-in conditioner, but we have a water heater the size of a can of soup, so getting the shampoo out is all I have time for. Conditioner is a luxury. Then I read to use a dryer sheet on your hair. Really? Can't be. But it is, and so I tried it. It actually works. But then I was in the bathroom of the church yesterday about to walk in to meet a bunch of girls for the first time and I was busted by a very elegant woman who witnessed me trying to rub a dryer sheet all over my head.
I hope I'm invited back next week.
The ghosts that haunt us
