I need a hair cut and color every 4 weeks.
The key word is
it only happens about every 8 weeks.
when I decide I can squeeze the 2 plus hour appointment in,
I make it with some urgency.
The kind little lady asks,
"and when would you like this for?"
and I always want to say,
You are probably wondering why I just don't pre-book...
because, I'm afraid I'll forget.
just isn't as good as it used to be...
and I'm really bad at keeping a calendar,
I loose the little appointment card in that amount of time...
So a few days ago,
being almost blinded by the glitter of the grey hair patch,
that resides on the right side of my head,
in my rear view mirror,
today was the day
to make thee hair appointment.
The soonest I could get in for a hair cut, color & foil was July 20th...
I screamed, literally.
The poor lady on the phone sensed the urgency,
and said we could possibly squeeze me in for just a cut tomorrow (yesterday),
the color will have to be done at a later date.
So, I opted for a 2-part deal...
Now, I would have to find another day
to squeeze this in.
Barb, my beautician,
introduced me to something
to hold me over until my color appointment...
It will be my savior until my hair color appointment rolls around.
It is amazing and well worth the 12 bucks!
Have you ever tried this stuff?
It is a miracle on a wand!
Comes in all hair colors,
says it's even safe to use on mens beards...
now, that makes me laugh!
For some reason,
I'm having a hard time coming up with a visual
of my darling husband using such a thing...
You just simply apply like mascara to the grey hairs
and they are gone...
until you wash your hair,
then you reapply.
Hair appointments used to be fun.
I'm just realizing that they have become work
because when you are a "50 something year old" female,
you just hope that while your head is wrapped in tin foil
your torso is draped in plastic,
while sitting under a hair dryer
you don't have a hot flash...
sucks to grow old!
And since we are on the topic of hair,
or lack there of...
let me share a photo of the two grand darlings,
and a cute little incident.
Their daddy was in Holland on business for 10 days,
and during this time frame
he celebrated his birthday.
mommy wanted to send him a photo of the kids
along with a birthday greeting.
I was there when this little photo shoot took place.
See the sweet smile on big brothers face?
The baby sister started the photo session
in a more upright position in big brothers lap,
which made him giggle...
her little fluff,
of what hairs she has,
was tickling Beckham in the chin,
the sweet smile on his face!
It was such a cute moment
and the photo now graces my computer screen,
Hoping you are all having a good "hair day",
