This one is for you, Coco!
Today my youngest, the cosmetology student, had to do a cut, color, style and make up on a model... My friend C, who is a real gamer, was willing and available so she and I got up at the Butt-Crack of Dawn and drove through morning traffic and construction for 90 minutes to get to the salon. Of course, our little hairdresser was sure I'd be late, and was actually waiting outside the door for us, texting and calling. I cant blame her for being anxious. Years of racing across town for early morning volleyball tournaments and afternoon softball games taught her that I would certainly be late and most likely get lost on the way to any destination that required promptness.... But this isn't about me.
Anyway, we got there, with minutes to spare, and C (who you might recognize from the garden structure post) and Nik dissapeared into the salon. I was left to park and find a seat in Barnes and Noble where I read all the knitting and quilting mags while sipping coffees...and awaiting the "We're Done" call. When I got the call,
I packed up my knitting (ok, I was kniting and reading, and sipping coffee. I multi-task) and went into the salon.
I was greated by these lovely girls:
Nice work, Coco. Thanks so much, C, for volunteering. I think you look great!
