First of all, I'll start with my last Girl Scout Sock Hop as a Girl Scout leader! (unless, of course, I end up being a leader for M.... let's not think about that!) C. took some friends to Culver's (for burgers--just like in the 50's!) beforehand:
Here's a picture of C's troop at the end of the Sock Hop (They had so much fun and were very sad that this would be their last Sock Hop. Someone said that they wished there were sock hops in middle school and I reminded them that, starting next year, they'd have real dances--with boys! That was met with a mix of excitement and disgust...)
A bit about me...
As usual, I live in a perpetual state of dissatisfaction with my hair. In this latest round, I have tired of my straight, dull hair and I'm frustrated with all the hair I've been losing as I age. So here's a picture of me a week ago, followed by a picture of me after my perm:
Not fantastic...as a matter of fact, in usual fashion, I immediately declared that I would never get another perm in my life! But it DOES look thicker...
We just got back from our "Spring Break" trip. While everyone else goes somewhere warm and South for Spring Break, we headed North as usual. After four days in Northern Wisconsin, we joined G. at his Department meeting in Central Wisconsin! At least there was a pool at the hotel we stayed in. :)
While on vacation in Hurley, I went in search of something fun to include in my Sock Pal's package. I am lucky enough to have a Sock Pal who lives in another country, which is really fun, but it also means that I need to mail her socks ASAP... Anyway, I went to Art Unlimited, which is a sportswear company (they print most of the advertising type shirts you find from Budweiser to specific vacation spot shirts...) and found the coolest sweatshirt that I hoped matched the socks I knit. It even says "Wisconsin"! Tell me what you think:
That's all for now. The kids go back to school tomorrow and that gives me a chance to get things somewhat back to normal--or at least routine!
