Some Big Hair Days

A week or two ago I was reading the insert of our local paper, showing the grad pictures of all the teens graduating from grade 12 this year. The first thing that struck me while I was looking at all the pics was, "when did big hair come back in style?". Some of the do's were pretty crazy and reminiscent of the 80's. I was inspired to go find some of my own big hair pics and I'll share them right here. Some of the best ones are in my mom's albums I think, but I did find some good ones...enjoy!

I have to take full responsibility for this one


Grade 12 grad and some very symmetrical bangs

Baby Stepping


No, I did not take this picture, but I DID go out on a kayak yesterday! Thanks again, Des! She was kind enough to give me a quick lesson and shove me off from shore in her kayak! And once I got out there for a bit, I really didn't want to come back in. It was so calm and peaceful out on the water (there was only one motorboat out on the lake...very rare for Sylvan!) and I was able to get a bit of a feel for manoevering. Don't worry everyone, if it tipped over I would have been ok because the skirt Des has is not a tight one, just loose with a drawstring so I would have slid right out! That was an initial concern of mine! But I felt very safe in it, and I can't wait to go out again! So the only thing is, now I'd really like a boat of my own...but the prices can be a little scary! I can't even buy a new car let alone a little boat! So I'll just put it out there if anyone knows of someone who wants to get rid of a kayak collecting dust in their garage for cheap or for free, you know where to find me! This was an awesome babystep for me, I always thought it would be so cool to go out in one, but I was too scared to go try it myself. For now I'll stick to the lake, not sure if I see any rapids in my future! I think my next baby step will have to be snorkeling...something I've always been afraid of too. But I think that to fully enjoy the experience, I'll have to do it somewhere tropical...I don't think Sylvan will cut it unless I want to observe seaweed, minnows, and an occasional beer can.

Broken

1952 Wienermobile

It seems that everything of mine is breaking these days. It began with my car about a week ago (well, it's been broken for a while, they just confirmed it last week). It's not really worth doing the repairs I think so I'm in the market for a new car...how does the weinermobile above look? Next it was my vacuum. It's also been broken for awhile, so I figured I better take it in. I thought it just needed a belt fixed but apparently all sorts of elecrical stuff is going haywire as well, and I was told I should just buy a new one. It's just a stick vac, but I really do need to vacuum, so that's next on my list. My cellphone has been slowly falling to pieces after a mishap at kids club, and now the only thing holding it together is the wire connecting the screen to the keypad. So that got replaced today. Saturday night, my toilet was running and I was trying to jiggle the float to make it stop and ended up snapping the float right off. So until Wed when they come to fix it, I must resort to keeping the water turned off to the toilet, flushing, then turning the water on until the tank is full again. The last straw came today. I was just leaving the mall after picking out my new phone. I was sitting in my car, trying to figure some stuff out on the phone, when the lense fell out of my glasses. Now, my glasses don't have a frame on the bottom, so there was no way for me to pop the lense back in even temporarily. So it was back into the mall, all the way down to Sears Optical. Luckily, she was able to fix them right away and didn't even charge me for it. I was so relieved, since I wouldn't have been able to drive back to Sylvan...I'm so blind without them! Anyway, that has been my last week and a half. I don't even want to think about what's going to go next.
