Long time, no chat. How is everyone? Basically, I’m here today to write a post because husband has been BEGGING for one. You’d think he’d be fulfilled and satisfied with his REAL LIFE doses of me.
I’m here to tell you that he isn’t.
For some reason, he likes to READ my shenanigans in addition to LIVING them firsthand.
Sometimes I wonder if he begs me to blog because he wants to know what I’m REALLY up to when he’s not around. Then I sometimes wonder if I reveal more of what I’m REALLY feeling when I’m behind my laptop. Whatever the case happens to be…I’m happy to be here tonight…to share with you (and my sweet husband) just a smidgeon of what’s on my mind.
First up…let me get this off my chest…
The longer I’m away from my blog, the more anxiety I have about coming back. It’s weird.
Now that we’ve gotten the nonsense out of the way, let’s talk about hair.
You see, I got a hair cut 2 weeks ago and guess what…
I. HATE. IT.
I’ve been growing my hair out for nearly 2 years now and I FINALLY had it at a length that I LOVED.
Just looking at my hair in that photo depresses me.
Isn’t that RIDICULOUS?!
It’s only HAIR. It’s gonna grow back!!
I thought I was taking pretty good care of my mane…I mean, I use pretty good quality hair care products albeit, I don’t use them as often as I should. You remember…I don’t wash my hair but 3 times/week…if I’m lucky. Usually always twice…3 times if I’m on top of things.
Might I just stop and tell you that husband ALWAYS notices when my hair is freshly washed. Not because it looks so pretty, either. He smells it. In fact, he’ll get into bed at night and stick his nose in my hair…take a huge sniff and then say…”You washed your hair!! It smells so good.”
If that isn’t enough to make you uncomfortable, I don’t now what is. Sometimes I wonder how he puts up with me.
Dirty haired wife.
Alright, so in addition to using good quality hair care products, I also try to stay on top of getting my hair trimmed…on a semi-regular basis.
I think this might be where a lot of my “issues” started. Unbeknownst to me.
You see, I loved my long(er) hair. It was really difficult for me to justify cutting “too much” off when I’d go in for a trim. So, I’d tell my stylist that I wanted just a TINY BIT cut off…enough to “clean it up” and “reshape” my cut.
So that’s what I’d get…until 2 weeks ago.
I had finally had enough. My split ends had gotten to the point where my hair looked a bit like HORSE HAIR and I knew enough was enough. When I arrived at the salon and started chatting with my stylist, he recommended that it was time to cut at least 1.5″ off.
Not only that…he told me that my long “stripper hair” was “totally out of style” and that medium length hair was “totally making a comeback.”
…should I have been offended at the “stripper hair” comment? Because…the more I think about it right now…at this very moment…the more irritated I’m becoming.
Because I LOVE my hair stylist and trust his judgement I agreed to the 1.5″ being cut off. Plus, I had HORSE HAIR!! WHAT WAS I SUPPOSED TO SAY?!
Long story short…this is where we’re at today…
Much healthier…but so short.
I nearly cried over it. But then I quickly reminded myself that it’s only hair…it’ll grow back. Not only that, my mom would be SO DISAPPOINTED!! We just don’t cry over nonsense like bad haircuts.
I’m a little embarrassed to sit here and admit to you that I nearly cried over missing 1.5″ of length in my hair.
My friend Ang said it best when she said…
“Isn’t it true how much value we put in our hair? As if it defines our heart and soul. Like it holds our courage and class. Well sister, it doesn’t!”
Truer words about what I think is a bad haircut have never been spoken…at least not to me.
Not only that, but Randy Travis said, “Honey I don’t care, I ain’t in love with your hair…and if it all fell out, I’d love you anyway.”
I’m certain that the above statement is pretty close to how my husband feels about my hair. Let’s be honest…he didn’t even notice I had it cut!
Alright kids…that’s all I got for you tonight. Trust this, I’ve got a lot more I want to share with you, so stay tuned.
