I did it. Eeek!

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Misc. life

Here’s a pic.

As I sat in the chair I was writing this post in my head the whole time. But it didn’t have an ending. As she razored the ends of my hair (oh, I hate that feeling) I wondered if I would be writing about what a horrible mistake this was. I imagined the comments. I imagined myself wearing a toque on the set. I remembered the time I got such a bad haircut I ran home and blindly lopped off the rest of it with a pair of scissors, because even totally butchered hair would better than that.

Happily, the haircut turned out well. Now my thoughts turn to tomorrow, and more serious topics. Like, what on earth am I going to talk about?

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
