Flashback to the 1980's

After, shopping for clothes I've come to the conclusion the 1980's are coming back to haunt me.  There are acid washed jeans and florissant colored tops.  I wanted to go running with my arms in the air out of the store.  At the time it was cool to dress like that and use an entire can of Vavoom or Aqua-net hairspray on our hair.  I'm talking about an entire can in one day. Hey, you can't get 6 feet hair without a lot of hairspray and teasing. Add a perm to it and you'd be cleared for take off on a windy day. Then there's the 6 inces of makeup on our faces.

I am still trying to figure out how I spent so much time doing makeup and hair that I actually made it to school on time.  Then once in school touching up hair and makeup again I'm surprised I learned anything.  But I must have learned something because the school gave me a diploma on graduation day.  

So the next time I go shopping I'll just avoid the 1980's clothes and stick with my plain clothes, little makeup, and flat hair. That way I won't look like Animal from the Muppets when I run out of the store.

Speed Limit Sign Birthday

Two days ago I turned 45. Yes, my age now equals a speed limit sign. While I worked both jobs that day, I still enjoyed it. I am blessed and grateful to be able to still work among other things. Of course I'd rather be off that day but it wasn't in the cards. So I made the most of it and smiled all day.

I will of course have lots of dinners coming up because it's hard to coordinate all the family and friends. I figure it's a great way to stretch out the birthday celebrations.
