Yes. I have been given doctor's orders to wear a mask. It was super fun getting my prescription in Rite Aid, looking like death AND wearing a face mask. I was not making eye contact with ANYONE and I'm pretty sure everyone was running in the opposite direction from me.
This is probably a more appropriate post for the other blog but I'm too lazy to log in and blah blah blah. I have the flu. Just the regular flu, not swine flue (although they don't really do the "test" anymore to see if it is or not) so really it's just a guess, but I'll go with it. I have to say it's pretty miserable. I don't think I've ever had the real flu before so it's a new experience and one I hope to never repeat. But I probably won't ever get the flu shot so it's a real possibility I'll get it again....but I've gone this long, right???
But for reals, I DID get a new look!
I've been long overdue for a hair cut (try a YEAR) so I finally had a chance to do it last week. I thought about doing Locks of Love but I chickened out. (I've only had shorter hair once in college and I totally regret it. even though this would have been for a totally worthy cause....)
I can't wait to actually fix it myself. Haven't had a chance since I've been "mostly dead" (name that movie!! a true depiction of my state....) since Saturday. Hopefully tomorrow! Here are a couple terrible and horrific before pictures. I wanted to take them when my hair was wet right out of the shower but I got to doing "mom" stuff and it was partially dry without any product in it....not a pretty sight. But oh well.
I realize now that I could have done the Locks of Love thing, but I figured if I started out by saying "10 inches ONLY, please" it would end up more like 15. SO here I am 10-12 inches later (and lighter!) anyway:
The base is my "natural color" (you can never really go back...) with full highlights throughout. It's fun and my pony is SUPER short....I don't remember the last time my ponytail didn't touch my shoulders! Big step, but I needed a change. That and my hair grows like a weed so I'll be back to long before I know it! :)
