I went from long hair that I haven't done more than snip spit ends off of for the past 9 years,
to having a super-cute curly bob that almost brushes my shoulders.
I had been growing my hair long. But I really don't know why. Yes it was long, but I really didn't DO anything with it. I found myself pulling it back into a pony-tail or a headband almost daily. It was long, yes, but not pretty because there was sooo much of it!I have very thick very curly hair.
I love my hair, but man oh man it took forever to dry,
it took loads of work to keep from becoming a tangled rats nest.
This morning I woke up, went to the mirror and it's still cute!
It looks healthy!
It moves & is bouncy!
I still like it!
Isn't it funny how something as little as a new hair style can affect your mood?
I have a new spring in my step, I got up, got dressed, fiddled with my hair (even tho it really didn't even need it!) instead of staying in my nightgown while doing my morning chores.
I feel like Jack chomped more than just my hair yesterday, he chomped off the tired football mom/dirty farm girl-who-doesn't-care-about-how she-looks too!
Now... don't expect me to collect eggs wearing a ball gown. or refuse to run to the mailbox without full on war paint, or stop working in the garden for fear of ruining my expensive manicure. But maybe, just maybe I won't scare the mail-man when he comes down the drive!
The Man-of-My-Dreams is still unsure of what he'll think, he is working out of town and won't see me until this week-end. He, of course, loved long hair (what is it with men and long hair? I know.. It's sexy, It's pretty.... but ,at least for me, more often than not it was just in a pony-tail or pulled back not flowing sexily and cascading over my shoulders.)
I'm thinkin that having his perky wife who actually found a way out of her frumpy, funky rut will be even better!
We shall see.
Until then, I am enjoying my new do! (you didn't see it, but I said that with a very cute flip of my hair!)
So.... You in a funk? You in a rut? Do something for yourself! Change something! I'm not saying that everyone should go out and do something as drastic as letting their livestock eat their hair.... But hey.. if thats what it takes......
You'll be glad ya did!
Edited to add...
ok... ok ... OK!! after no less than 18 e-mails I thought about adding a picture of my new do.
As you know I do not like to have my picture taken, I know it sounds weird. I was on TV for cryin out loud! But thats the truth.. I hate having my picture taken.
At first I was SHOCKED that I was even entertaining the thought of taking my own picture.Then, I was kinda dazed and almost passed out.
Then I decided that I would need some courage and took out a bottle of homemade wine and drank it.. all. *hiccup* And I decided..
NOPE not gonna put a picture of my big ole butt on here.
You'll just have to deal with it.
Sorry, my site.. my rules.
