Ok, now that the news is out of the way, I can give you some background info.
I have always had a weird "thing" with my hair... I don't really know what it is. I have always looked at long hair as an accomplishment. I thought deep down that people would look at me, with my long tangled locks, and think "Wow, look at her long hair. Isn't that great?!" I felt like my hair was a bit of a security blanket, something I could always count on. Even if I knew it was going to be huge, frizzy, and a bit like a lion's mane, I felt like it was part of my personality. I told you, it was weird.
So, for some reason, I decided it was time to cut it all off. I stressed and worried and researched for way too long and then, just did it. Without even telling Ross I was going to. I went to the salon, chopped of close to 6 inches, and when Ross came home from work... POW! I had short hair.
And the big surprise.... I actually love it! It takes a fraction of the time to comb it out, it is hardly ever tangled, I use a TON less shampoo/conditioner, and my neck and back stays about 10degrees cooler without all of the extra weight.
So here it is... ta da!!!!!!!!!!!!
