haircutForgive me, scissor gods for I have sinned.  It’s been nine months since my last real haircut.

I always feel like I have to apologize to my hairdresser as I sit into her swivel chair.  Explain how cheap I am, or how lazy I was, that I just didn’t pick up the phone, grab the car keys and get my dang hair cut.  This past Saturday was my breaking point…well, I guess two Saturdays ago, really.  After I felt comfortable with Ethan’s progress I looked at my hair and cringed.  I was suffering from the beginnings of a mullet…and while early on I had avoided the salon by clipping it myself (yikes!) I didn’t want to chance anything this time.  So I finally booked an appointment a week in advance and got that crap chopped off.  And boy, what an improvement.  I am now thrilled to report my hair is all one length, and I feel like I’m home free.  Growing it out will now be a piece of cake I tell you!  Not to mention I feel the exact opposite of frumpy.

If you are debating it, just go get your hair cut, ladies.  We all deserve a good trim!

Note:  This week month may feel a little weak blog-post-wise.  Sometimes (and this is one of those times) it is difficult to come up with new content when not much is really happening (especially when I rely on my own photos/life to create content).  Mostly, I’ve been enjoying my time with Ethan and focusing on his healing process, as I should.  Though I don’t want to leave you with a ton of blog silence and lose your lovely attention, things may not be as deep around here as they could be.  But I promise, when things get back to some sort of normal (i.e. Ethan can leave the house and do things with me) great posts will find their way back.

    So happy you are pleased with the new “do” and that Ethan is doing so well!!!!!

    1. Glad you approve of it too =) Thank goodness for Google Chat.

  2. I am the WORST about getting my hair cut. I literally think I went a year this last time. I was so over it I chopped about 10 inches off and feel like a new person! Def making it a point to go at least every 10 weeks from now on. Isn’t it crazy how much better a good cut can make you feel??

    1. A completely refreshed outlook on myself. I can’t wait to have my hair at least 10 inches long again 😉

  3. we’re in the same boat (and I think most women are) – I’m generally too lazy to go get my hair cut or done!!

    1. Nothing a floppy bun can’t fix! I can’t wait to be lazy with long hair =)
