Virtual GNO - Not Ready For The Bikini

`
I'm having low self-esteem issues.

I've been exercising like crazy but the numbers on the scale aren't going down. Boo. Yesterday my 9 y/o was going to be in her school's Talent Show , but I didn't know about a rehearsal that happened on the previous day. Missing the rehearsal threw her for a loop so she didn't want to be in the show any more. Boo. Then, while I was taking some bowls out to make healthy, air-popped, lightly buttered popcorn (who am I kidding, I was going to make cookie dough for us) my 2 favorite bowls dropped on my big toe, breaking into pieces, fully expressing how I was feeling about myself in the first place. Ugh. Know what I'm in the mood for? A Virtual Girls Night Out!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…
