I guess moving what 8000 miles away from home, and selling our house, and up rooting our family didn't really satisfy my need for change. And because I can't wake up, after thinking about and wanting to be, 20 lbs thinner. I decided I needed a change. So Bethany and I just went to the salon and I said " I need a change."
I am not sure what I think.
Though Bethany said "You look like a Grandma." To which I said "Is that good?" And she said, "Yeah you kind of look like our grandma." I must remind you as well that she thought a picture of Grandma was the guy from Blades of Glory...so I can 't rest my judgement solely on her, though in her defense my mother in law's hair always looks great and styled.
Then my sweet husband, said "it looks nice, but is that all your hair?"
"Um yeah its my hair. What do you mean?"
"well you know how sometimes they style your hair, and it looks different after you wash it? When my mom used to get her hair done we'd tease her on how it looked when she got home, because of the way the hairdresser would do her hair. Then she would wash it and style it her self and it would look normal again."
So I wonder if that was a compliment or a way of getting out of saying "I don't really like it."
I don't know what do you think?
PS. these pictures I took tonight after I washed it, and let it dry as i went for a three mile walk, in the wind and drizzle. And I do love that more than half my hair is gone, the stylist- like most- kept saying "wow you have a lot of hair" as she took the thinning scissors and chopped away.
