So, the other day, i was looking at some blogs. There's one, it's one of my favourite blogs, 'cause the mama is so sweet (yes, i'm talking about you, lily of the valley) ~ with the long hair & pretty dresses. Anyway, she posted this "classy up-do" very old fashioned pin curls.. ."& then the next day, your hair will be in beautiful cascading curls!" So, i thought, since Neil's not home, i'll try that. i tried to hurriedly scramble it up & got bored half way through, but managed to get it all up... We had a play date later that day & my friend said to me, "wow, your hair looks... funky" ... hmmm... i was going for classic 19th century, but i'll take funky... Fast forward to the next day ~ we had accidentally slept in till 8:30... i go to take down the pin curls & they have turned into DREAD LOCKS!!

i didn't know what to do. i was in my pj's wondering what i should do with my new jamaican 'do & i hear the doorbell ring. i'm sitting there, in my pj's with half my hair up, half down wondering who is so rude as to ring my doorbell at 9am & Peyton runs upstairs, gapes at my hair & says, "mom, it's the facilitator!!" HAHA!! i pulled on some clothes, & tied the dreads back & went downstairs to what looked like a war-zone & put on my best smile. "Welcome to the loony bin". Ah, well... maybe i'll try the pin curls another time. i ended up with crazy Janis Joplin hair ~ not very homeschool mama-ish, but it was fun for one day...

Did you take a picture? Hehehe, love those aukward moments...
Hmmm, speaking of that I should go have a shower before someone comes to my door - I don't have any excuses!

No! Hence my surfing the internet for appropriate illustrations to this blog post. i should have tho, it was funny. One time, we were going to church & i tied my hair up in this big multi coloured scarf & Neil stood looking at me for about 20 seconds & then said, "are you serious?" hahaaaa. i've never ever ever been one of those people who have it all together.

Oh dear... I'm sure the facilitator has seen worse, though, ya know? :)

You totally should've taken a picture! :) Maybe, for Jen and I, you can re-do the experience? HA HA!!

My hair never does what I think it should, either.

You are hilarious, Paige! ;) I would have loved to have seen the picture. ;) By the way, most of the time, my hair tends to be downright unruly.

Oh Paige, that is sooo funny!

Ha....I went to Christine's blog to see the updo in question, but couldn't find it. Looks like you'll have to keep your fun-hair days limited to when Neil is out of town.
