Only problem was, they don't keep the color on stock. I *might* be able to special order it, but she's going to have to check with her manager.
So I ended up with a darker, richer brown with reddish highlights. Except the highlights are so finely done, it just looks like another dimension to the brown. It's pretty but it's much darker than I'm used to. It's going to take some time to adjust to, I think.
None of this helps my mood, which is not good. I've been a seesaw lately, but I'm not going to whinge here yet again. It's all the same old issues, with all the same old inadequacies, and none of the means to resolve any of it.
