Good morning everyone, I hope you all had a great Easter weekend. I started sharing my thoughts regarding working from home in a series of Work from Home Diary posts. Feel free to share your work from home feelings in the comments section below. For today’s update, I wanted to share my experience getting a (quarantine) haircut at home. I included many photos below.
This is the start of week 6 of working from home for me and week 5 for Laura. We have converted our dining room table into a (sometimes messy) coworking space and I am proudly drinking from my favorite mug. If you can’t see what it says, it say “I don’t need Google, my wife knows everything.” I haven’t decided if it is ironic or accurate, but it is a great mug (and was on sale). When we are not working from home, we like to go on a short walk around the neighborhood to stretch our legs, get some fresh air, and maybe see a few birds by the lake.
If you want to see my before and after haircut pics, please keep reading.
As I mentioned in last week’s post (Work from Home Diary 6: Spring Cleaning with Marie Kondo & My Strange Amazon Purchases), I bought a Philips Norelco Trimmer ($20) and said Laura would *attempt* to cut my hair. I have had many haircuts in my life (so many, I can’t keep track) but I was really impressed by Laura’s hair cutting skills. For her first haircut, she did much better than I hoped / prayed / anticipated. With some encouragement and directions from me, the haircut looks pretty good.
I am really not very picky when it comes to my haircut, so maybe I will get more quarantine haircuts at home in the months to come. Considering that an average haircut costs about $20 including tip, that comes out to $120 – $160 in haircuts during the year. I would much rather save that money and spend it on a dinner or travel somewhere. Have you considered getting a quarantine haircut at home? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section. Have a great day everyone!
