Nate took the day off for the (cancelled) trip. He was going to go to school with S. It would have been his first time to be the parent-helper (a once-a-month obligation at our cooperative preschool), and S was very excited. Plans changed again, however, when S woke up feeling lousy. Nate ended up staying home with the boys while I went to S's school alone... it was too late to switch with another family. So, we did a lot of shuffling of plans today, and I'm plum tired out.
I have been trying to grow my hair out... I had visions of a super hip hair-do: long hair with super short bangs. However, things on the hair front have not been proceeding in accordance with my vision.
I never wear my hair down. It's ALWAYS in a pony-tail. So what is the point of having long hair that I never wear down? Exactly.
Also, my hair is thin. And a few months ago I had it cut by a man who "texturized" the crap out of my hair, which is to say he made it much thinner.
See those whispy bits? Eww. Not good. Today I decided life is too short to suffer through an unflattering haircut. Thus, the change:
I've always liked myself in a bob. My hair was kind of like this (minus the bangs) when Nate and I got married. And I loved my hair that day.
The lady who cut my hair was nice. I liked her. But when she asked if I wanted her to dry and style my hair, I didn't expect her efforts to go beyond round brush and hair dryer. She used those two tools, plus 4 kinds of volumizing hair product, a flat iron, and super-firm hold hair spray. Basically, she "styled" me for a prom in 1985.
Witness the bouffant.Oh well. The bouffant will be gone after tomorrow's shower. And I am really happy to have a cute, easy haircut again.
Nate and I are going to watch Spiderman 3 tonight. I'll report back tomorrow.
