A Bad Hair Day

Hannah and I got up a little early this morning and headed out to Webster for some shopping. We stopped in Walmart first for cat food, laundry detergent, soap, toothpaste and other various and sundry items. From Walmart we went to Wegman's for a few grocery items and then stopped for gas before going to Dave's house to pick up Lucas. We still had a little over an hour before noon, when I have to get Troy from preschool, so I thought maybe I could squeeze in a haircut. I've been wanting to get it cut for weeks now. (The top photo is from a week or so ago. It's my wild hair.)

The shop wasn't too busy but the hairdressers weren't in much of a hurry either. By the time I got in the chair it was 11:15. Not too bad, but I am a little indecisive when it comes to what I want done with my hair. We decided on trimming up the layers (what little there were...), taking a little off the length, and cutting my "bangs". We chatted away as she cut. I watched the clock and eventually became a bit concerned at the time. It was apparent the cut would not be done soon enough for me to pick Troy up on time. Since I know the hairdresser from high school we decided that I would take my half-cut hair, run back to town, and retrieve Troy (Hannah went in to get him), and then I would return and have my haircut finished. Of course, by the time we returned Lucas had decided he was hungry, so I made him a bottle, and Hannah took Troy into the grocery store to find him a yogurt and some pretzels.

Finally my hair was done, I paid for the cut and we headed home. I don't like my hair. It looks chopped. I wet it down and blew it dry. I sprayed it with a half gallon of "Instant Freeze". I am afraid to go near the wood stove. I think it looks a little better but now I can't relax. If I lay down or lean my head back with hair this crunchy, it might break off.


  1. Part it on one side and let your bangs fall in your face a will make you look sexy...and make you feel like you've got a bit of style instead of just eh. I like it with it or tie it back if it doesn't work and then get it cut again in a few weeks ;-)

  2. Don't whine, at least you have hair to cut! As you get older, well, as I get older my hair doesn't grow as fast or as thick. Good to know your hairdresser. :)

  3. Nothing worse that a bad hair day... You look rather cute in your wild hair!!!!

    I finally found someone close that gave me a cut and perm for $40 that's much better than the last one.

    Now I can do it myself for another six months.

    I love long hair, but just can't manage mine when it is!

  4. You make me laugh! Think about that, ...your bad hair day was good for me, because it is good to laugh!

  5. Gudrun, that makes everything better. ;)
