Before I cut my hair I wore it in a ponytail every day (for years). No matter what. Even if I took the time to do it in the morning (instead of the shower and go thing that happens way to often!), even if I thought it looked cute down...without fail it would be in a ponytail within an hour. It was kind of ridiculous, really.
On the rare occasion that I would accidentally leave the house without a rubber band, I would would be frantically looking for one under the seats in the car, in my purse, my pockets etc...I've actually stopped to buy one when my searches were unproductive. It was borderline psychotic.
Now it's too short for a pony tail. In fact that was my only request to the girl that cut it. NO PONY TAIL. I'm not completely sure that I love the haircut itself, but it's freeing not to rely on a rubber band to keep me sane.
Plus, it has some style now which has prompted me to wear a little more make-up, buy some new earrings and care a bit more about my appearance.
It feels good to be a little girly.
Maybe I'll post a picture tomorrow.
In some totally unrelated news:
I spent way too much money at Target today.
Saw Dan In Real Life tonight. I enjoyed it. It's been awhile since I've gone to a movie. I had fun.
I'm trying to figure out something fun to do with the kids on Monday since there is no school...
