Well, I got a recommendation and am taking a chance on a new hairdresser next week. I hated to ask on fb as my hairdresser is a friend, but he's out of town all next week and just can't fit me in before then. I hope she does a good job. I'm sick about how much money it costs, but I hate looking like an old lady. I have tried for the past four months to just let the gray grow in and see if I could live with it, but I can't. There's a nice wide streak right at my widow's peak which would be fine if that was it, but there is also a fine sifting all over that is depressing to look at. I wear pigtail braids to keep my hair contained when I ski and gray just doesn't go well with that look. I feel so vain and very first-world-problem right now.
And we do not get to bring JoJo with us - we are not paying, the winery is, so they only paid for the two of us. JoJo's staying here with my my mom for half the week and with her aunt and other grandparents for the second half of the week. There's a possibility that we will go to Sicily for two weeks next year and I think we may be able to bring her with us for that one. I hope so - I hate leaving her here for so long.
I am a little worried about leaving her - there is an actively erupting volcano about 500 km south of where we are skiing and then last week there were riots in Santiago about the cost of education. I checked on the state department site and there is no travel advisory for Chile so I will hope for the best.
