I did something today that I haven't done in a really long time.

Well, two things, if you count deep cleaning my bathroom (deep cleaning = on my knees scrubbing tile).

The other thing I did was curl my hair. I don't know what really prompted it other than I had time to kill and a piqued curiosity. I haven't curled my hair since college. Unless you count my sister's wedding, but even that day I wasn't the one to curl it and actually I wouldn't consider those curls so much as a mane.

Anyway. I used to curl my hair every morning before school. Because I have such awesome priorities and wanted to sleep in as late as possible (actually, my curlers took all freaking morning to get hot), I would wait until the very last minute, after I was dressed and all but ready to head to school before I would put the curlers in. If I had time, I'd eat breakfast at the house. If I was running late, Mom would fix it to go and I'd eat on my 4 minute trip to school. I would have breakfast finished by the time I got out of the neighborhood, and then without a second to spare, I'd take the curlers out on the quarter-mile drive between my neighborhood and my school. The last one would be coming out as I was pull into school parking lot. I had it to a science, I tell you.

Looking back, this whole routine was probably not a good idea. I'm surprised I didn't get made fun of (to my face at least). But it did teach me one valuable lesson - the art of driving with my knee.

Off to school I go!
