New ideas, new decor, new career, new friends

and a renewed sense of self worth!

I have finally made the decision to give up nursing for real.

That really wasn't a hard decision, actually!

Yes, nursing has it's moments but the field has really changed
in the past 12 years that I have been practicing.

Nurses are nothing but paper pushers (even in this day of computerized medical records, trust me it's easier to write down a quick statement/note on paper)

and we are also the complaint department.

Having spent this whole year in a cardiology office, I couldn't begin to tell you how many phone calls that I have recieved. When I checked my voice mail in between patients, as I am the only nurse, I would have as many as 16 voicemails! OMG!!!

Any way I looked at it there was NOT enough of me to go around.

My stress level was/is at it's highest in my whole life!

So I decided that I had to take care of me!

Hence the decision to use my resources and fall back on my first career/degree which is cosmetology. Of course I have been up and running in my little salon in my yard for a couple years now working very part time at it.

However I have owned much bigger salons in the "city" in the years past but I am ready to settle down here on the farm and plow away at making friends, family and new clients beautiful with each service that I can drag them in here for!! LOL

I know that I have posted my salon name in the past as "Another Wild Hair" but I did not do enough research on that name and I have decided on my new name for my new salon to be

"Hair In The Country"

I think it fits perfectly since the location couldn't get much further off the beaten path!

Hey don't judge, we farmgirls like it that way, right?

I offer hairstyling while specializing in coloring. I guess that's the artist in me!

I am also offering Facial Waxing and Natural Nail Care....

think Tea Tree Oil Nail Soak and a Lavender Mint Manicure.......

Sound Yummy???

I think so and would like one of those myself. Maybe I could talk my girls into treating me as a client in my salon! I am sure they will partake in my services!!

I think I will top it off with a Hot Paraffin Wax Hand Dip in Grape Seed Oil Wax!!

Ooh Laaaaa Laaaaa!!

Would you take a drive to the country for this type of service?

Would you "stay" in the country instead of driving into the city for those services?

Gasoline is only $4 a gallon my friends!

I guess we will find out on or after June 1st!

That is the day scheduled for opening day.

Wow I have a lot of work to do before then.

Oh I also have to work out my 30 day notice at work, three more weeks to go and then I am my own boss again. I can set my own hours and work at my own pace.

All that right here on my farm, just exactly where I need to be!!!

Here's to a new me!!
