Does that mean no one is feeling stress?

The usual suspects -- money, health, holidays.

Right now I am stressing out about money (hah). A freelance writing gig fell through (which is probably a blessing in disguise since apparently they might take a lot of time to pay). I have an interpretation assignment in a couple of weeks. It's not what I like to do at all, it's in a language I haven't spoken regularly in 3 years (Italian) and a subject I barely know anything about (hair), but I am doing this as a favor for a friend of mine and of course the money is welcome. So now I am brushing on my Italian and Indonesian and learning about hair colouring and hair cutting in both languages!

I had initially wanted to tell him to throw in a couple cut + colour + highlights and we'll seal the dea, but at dinner I found out yesterday that he's very sweet. He charges us a sixth of what he's charging this pop singer for a cut, colour and highlights. The other day he didn't even charge me for the cut.

I'm just tired from lack of sleep with Rascal, our new puppy.

Wow! What a deal on the haircut and the discount he's giving you. :)

How fun to be reacclimating to a language you've not been practicing and learning new things too.

Sounds like you'll have your hands full this holiday! LOL Hopefully it won't be too drama filled.
