I remember sitting on the edge of the bathtub and watching my mom get ready to go out. She always wore lipstick and was also adept at putting it on in the car while driving (and talking on her cellphone). She also wore these little blue saphires (Are those the blue stones) in her ears. That was when her hair was permed and curly and maxi skirts were in.
I miss my mom. She lives in Kazakhstan with my dad while he teaches and I hardly ever see or talk to them (except on skype every couple days, now that I have the internet.)
