It turns out Security State Bank doesn't have a branch near Arlington Heights, darn. Actually I can't even find a Shazam ATM around this area. In Iowa, that's what almost all the ATMs were. I had to mail my first two paychecks home to be deposited. It was a pain. So now I am determined to find a new bank. Tear. Don't worry Security, I won't leave you.
I've never really been faithful to any hair salon. I just went with whatever because I'm not very picky about my haircuts. Sure, when I lived in Cascade I always went to the same place, mostly because it was nice to have someone you know to talk to, and she gave really great haircuts for a steal, which doesn't hurt. But in Iowa City, I frequented LaJames because they had dirt cheap haircuts. How can you go wrong with a $7 haircut? Well it turns out a lot of ways, but I knew the receptionist so she always got me really good stylists. It pays to have connections. I've been researching online for a new place to go in my area, but THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE! I like cheap things. So on Monday, when I was absolutely desperate for a haircut because my hair had lost all shape and was driving me nuts, I just stopped at the Hair Cuttery. It's one of those cheap chains. Good enough. My stylist was a sweetheart and talked quite a bit, which I always enjoy so we don't have to sit there in silence.
Don't you just love getting a haircut? Someone massaging my scalp for a shampoo and playing with my hair is sooo relaxing. And the smell, oh the smell, it is so yummy. I would get it cut all the time if I could.
New chiropractor. I need one and quick. My lower back has decided it is not happy with me and has gone all wacky. I've pretty sure that huge knot/bound up nastiness I feel in my upper butt is not normal. Oddly my back isn't sore, but it feels like I have done 1000 sit-ups every day for 4 days. How odd, huh? My lower abdominals are incredibly sore. Maybe, just maybe, if I get my back put back in place I will have a six-pack now?! Oh please, please, please.
A girl can dream.
I have another announcement. I made the switch to an Illinoi-an. (what do you people call yourself?). Why do I say that my bloggy friends? Because I traded in my Iowa Driver's License for an Illinois one.
Yeah sorry, you don't get to see all my personal info.
One of the best reasons to change my license: You can still smile in Illinois. That's right, boo on Iowa which adopted the no smile, everyone looks bad policy.
Don't worry bloggies, I will always be an Iowan.
At heart and otherwise.
Have you ever moved and what new things did you have to find?
