Have you had one of those oops moments lately? You know the ones I mean. One of those times when you wished you hadn’t left the house in quite the condition you did. Well I had one yesterday.

I was feeling quite pleased with myself as I drove home after spending several hours running errands all over town. In the process of my errands, I went into the library, stopped at a drugstore, went to the grocery store, and hit several other stores.

Then, I happened to brush my hand through the back of my hair, and felt a huge, sticky glob. A quick check revealed that it was toothpaste, and lots of it, spread over a large bunch of hair, matted together and sticking straight out. Now I know I brushed my hair as I was getting ready to leave home. But apparently in the process of brushing my teeth, I managed to somehow get a bunch of toothpaste on my hand, and rub it into my hair. Yuck!

I don’t think I saw anyone that I know…at least I hope I didn’t. So, all in all, not too bad of an episode. Definitely not as bad as my high school goof of wearing shoes from two different pairs (and drastically different colors), and not noticing it until school was nearly out. And even that pales in comparison to this classic goof from Designing Women.

My first memory is sitting with my mother on a blanket in our backyard surrounded by books and she is reading one of them to me. My love of reading was encouraged by my parents and it continues to today. I’ve gone through a lot of different genres over the years, but I currently primarily read mysteries (historical mysteries are my favorites) and romances (focusing on contemporaries, categories, and steampunk). When I’m not reading or working, I love to travel, knit, and work on various community projects.
