Time to Lighten Up

I took a long, hard look at myself this week, and I decided it was time for me to lighten up. 

No, no, no – I’m not speaking about abdominal girth.  That will have to wait.  {Which means I can keep eating ice cream and chocolate and cinnamon rolls and feel sort of OK about it, at least for a little while longer!}

I really do need to lighten up and live a little.  Sometimes I make life too serious.  Sometimes??  Really??  Nah, not me!  But that’s not where the lightening up was needed.

It’s my hair!  And I’m not talking color.  {That’s the one thing I actually love about my hair, and it’s completely natural, even the gray.}  I’m talking about length.

Yup – couldn’t stand it anymore.  Got myself an appointment today, found a couple pictures I liked, and completely whacked it off!  Not exactly sure how many inches, but I’m thinking somewhere in the vicinity of 9-10!!

While I *think* I like the cut, my hair is in hair shock, so I don’t think it looks completely like it will.  I think after a couple of days it will look better.

And now I’ve got your attention, because you’re thinking I look absolutely freakish right now, and you think you’re going to get to see a picture.

Aw shucks!  I just don’t do hair shock photos!  You’ll have to wait a couple days until it settles down. 


  1. I can't wait to see your new 'do! Post a pic soon! :)

  2. I'm glad you warned me about the shock!! But do post a picture, I'm excited to see it!
