Phone, zumba, and hair

Well, I think my phone is completely dead.  It will start up, but it turns itself off and back on, and repeats that indefinitely. So I called to get a new one.  I haven't had to replace my phone because of something I did for about 3 years, so I was super surprised to find out that the price went up from $80, to $99.  It annoys me because I've paid for insurance on my phones for years, and I still have to pay $100, that's not much less than getting a new phone when my contract is up.  I'm thinking of going with a different company altogether.  I'm not extremely happy with Verizon, but I don't know if other companies are any better.

I'm supposed to get it today, so that would be awesome.  I would love to have some music while I run, and I don't want to run on the treadmill again.

Anyway, because I don't have a phone (no music) I was trying to figure out what I was going to do yesterday.  I was on Facebook at lunch and saw "Zumba at 5:30!"  I haven't been to zumba since I before I started Insanity in April.  I was a little worried because when you don't go for a long time they change the songs and the routines and I end up looking like an idiot because I don't know what I'm doing.  However, it wasn't too bad.  I was pleased that there were about 3 songs/routines that I recognized.  I forgot how much of a workout for my arms it is.  I thought my shoulders were going to be super sore today.  I did the pull-ups and push-ups on Monday, and then zumba yesterday.  I was right, my shoulders are very sore today.

While I was zumba-ing, I thought a lot about MaryFran because I know she likes zumba so much.  I wish I was more open and could be more comfortable making friends there.  Before I stopped going in April, I had been going for almost a year, and recognized most of the faces (I still did yesterday), but no names and could probably count on one hand how many people I've actually talked to.

This afternoon I have a hair appointment.  I'm thinking about cutting my hair again.  I am tired of my hair right now, but I don't know if I want to cut it just yet.  This is one of my favorite haircuts from my past and what I'm thinking of doing again, just not blonde.


  1. Yes, Zumba is my social hour! :-)

    Can't wait to see your new 'do'. Although I think you make a great blonde!!!

    1. Thanks MaryFran. :-) Blonde is my natural color (well, it has darkened and now is a dark blonde) but I've been dying it blackish for almost 2 years now and really like it. :-)
