Hairy Holiday!

Whew…… I can’t say that loud enough… The Holidays are over! I stopped long enough to figure out the last time I cooked a turkey meal. The last time I cooked the whole kit and caboodle was Christmas 2008. It was like riding a bike… tasted good and I didn’t miss a beat. Turkey was good, but the soup was better!!!! The whole reason I make a turkey is for the soup. Yeah, sure the stuffing and gravy are good, but for me it’s the soup.

Now for the hairy situation…

no it’s not the weather

or the dogs…

its me… longhair sm

I have a habit of just letting my hair grow. Once just to see if it would stop growing. It doesn’t. In 1996 my hair was down to my ankles. Really! almost to the floor. That would be really long if I was 6 feet tall, but I’m not… I’m just a hair more than 5 feet…. The last time I had it cut was 2009…. since then it has grown… down to my butt.

braid sm

I keep it in a braid, which is then rolled up on my head. I was sick of the long hair and the amount of time it took to wash and dry it. So today I got it cut…. I gave it to ‘Wigs for Kids’. I have donated to Locks of Love, but I haven’t heard good things about their program. Today I left a tail close to 20 inches long.

I need to remember to cut it….. new hair sm

again before it gets long again.

Next I need to find a place to leave 20 pounds.

 

More Later- Beth

It's amazing how much lighter you feel isn't it.

I had forgotten you had long hair but then I wouldn't have know how long it was if it was up in a braid. I think you will be happy with the 'less care' part.

Wow, bet you lost some lb just by cutting your hair. Will you keep putting it up or let it down? <3

Wow and here I always you with short hair! It must have been a real shocker to wash your hair the next morning. Now you'll have more time, no braiding!

Wowwee! The length is fun - still long enough to put up if you want. Nice!
