Where have all the long curls gone??
Long time passing...
:) That old Peter, Paul and Mary song just popped in my head as I was making these pics of my new hair cut! (Well, with a twist, naturally!)
Today I took the plunge and went and got my long locks trimmed. It has been a long time since I cut my hair at all! I'm not your usual modern day lady who frequents hairdressers. It's my least favorite thing to do!!
Really weird - I know!
Actually, I like my hair long, except in the summer when I have to use hair clips a lot to keep cool! That makes me have headaches!....so...finally I break through my resistance and just go for it!
I don't like big changes in any part of my life. If something is comfortable I usually want to stick with it...That goes for almost everything in all parts of my life!
LOL- The only way getting old has been tolerable for me is that it has happened so gradually...
Imagine if it had happened suddenly!!! haha- I'd be in a tizzy! Lucky there's a good master plan in place, eh?
....And the part about trading my petite figure of my youth for this old bag I'm in now (ooops ...I meant to say this more mature shape) hasn't really been that bad either- because it happened gradually, so as to give me time to get settled in!
I DO wish I could have kept my original medium brown hair, though. As I got older and the gray was taking over I began lightening my hair. The gray blends in better with the blonde. and I don't have to color it nearly as often as I would need to if I was trying to keep it my original color! (Does that make sense to anyone?)
...But-I DO find that being blonde is fun! It's been a few years now and I'm quite in tune with it by now!
LOL- and let me tell you...having Blonde Moments combined with Senior Moments is a force to be reckoned with! lol!
