My Mom was here around Christmas time and noticed that I was in desperate need of a haircut. Well, since we are low on money and I had my surgery, my hair has grown out quite a bit to say the least. I normally wear my hair short and well it is just above my shoulders so that should tell you that I am in need of a MAJOR cut. Well, I was talking to my Mom the other night and she must have thought that my hair looked pretty bad because she offered to pay for me to get my hair done. Oh, bless her heart!! I am so excited. I scheduled my appointment tonight and told my hairdresser that I want the works. I want a full overhaul. Oh, I just can't hardly wait to get my hair cut, colored, some highlights and to have my eyebrows waxed.
OH GIRLS, let's talk about my eyebrows for a moment. Do you all know who Andy Rooney is on 60 minutes? Well, I don't ever watch 60 minutes unless I am getting ready to watch something else after that, but I must admit that I never miss Andy Rooney and his eyebrows. I mean his eyebrows are just so out of shape that it is unbelievable. I sit in my recliner and try my best to listen to what he has to say at the end of his show, but I can't get my mind or eyes off of his eyebrows. Anyway, back to my eyebrows.... they are in desperate need of a wax job and are really starting to look as bad if not worse then Andy Rooney's, but that will all be taken care of come Tuesday. Another great thing is that she is coloring my hair all over and adding a few highlights to the front close to my face. That is definitely a good thing because my gray hairs are really starting to shine through. I never realized I was so gray until just recently. The last time I was in getting my hair done, I decided to go back to my normal color. I thought that if I went back to my normal color then it would be easier for me to keep up with it and not have to get it done so frequently and that way I could save more money. Well, now that I went back to my normal color which is pretty close to black or a dark dark brown - you can really see the gray shining through. Oh, I was combing my hair out after my shower the other day and thought I had lint in my hair or something that shouldn't belong in my hair.... I stood there FOREVER trying to get it out, even asked my hubby to get it out and he told me that there wasn't anything in there to get out. I asked him what the white stuff was that I was seeing and he snickered and said "Uh honey, that is called gray hair." Oh my goodness, I bent over and looked closer in the mirror and indeed he was right. I had gray hair everywhere and that is when I realized that I needed to stay on top of coloring it or start wearing a hat (lol). Yep, I am thrilled to be getting it colored and I can hardly wait to be get that MAJOR overhaul that I am in desperate need of. So, next time you all see a picture of me, I will hopefully look ALOT better and probably feel like a new and improved woman - WOOHOO, I think this is just what the doctor ordered for me. Nothing like getting your hair done and it making you feel so good about yourself and truly that is just what I need.
It is funny because before you have a child, you go from doing everything for yourself and then when you have a child you do everything for your child and never think about yourself. Ah, it will just be such a nice treat to have my hair cut, colored and my eyebrows done. I can't wait!! I am so excited!!
