Hello my friends, a beautiful hot summer day today and I loved every minute of it....well almost every minute.
This morning after breakfast I headed to here, my hairdresser's. As I sat in the chair I suddenly had this strong urge to do something different. I always wear my hair below my ears, I have never colored it but have been wearing streaks for several years now.
The shop is called Hair Revolutions and my hairdresser's name is Amanda. Since my chemo and radiation my hair has never grown back the way it was and Amanda who I have been going too since I moved to Morninville has been very supportive and encouraging. She understood that a woman is devastated when she looses her hair, she supplied wigs and head coverings for me when I was ill. I have always loved her for that, and she usually works miracles with what little hair I have but today.....
Are you done laughing now, okay I will continue....
There was to be no miracle. Now she said I may not be pleased but to remember hair always grows back. Thank heaven! She always finds something good to say to me, like for your age its amazing you have no grey hair....well first, she is very young and second, you need to have hair before it can turn grey. Anyway it is far too short and I don't like it but I know, as Amanda says, it will grow back.
I am posting this to show myself that I am confident and secure and will not stay in and hide for the next six weeks. It may be severe and much too short for my chubby face but it is what it is and I will keep up with my social commitments regardless of what my hair looks like, on the other hand....I still have one of those wigs I could slip on.... I want hair like Eileen's and Rebecca's but the truth is I didn't have their beautiful hair even before my illness.
Now this afternoon I played around on the computer trying to find a template for my blog that suits my personality. Again something I have been thinking of for a week now but since I am computer challenged I realized this is a lot easier said than done. Now I kind of like the new look, I love the angel header and to me it looks fresh and clean. I'm not sure if I am going to keep this look or keep playing around.....unlike my hair I can always go back to the old blog anytime.
So today was a day of trial and errors, but I am not looking back, only forward and I have six weeks to think how nice my hair will look for Christmas! I am so looking forward to Christmas this year.
Tomorrow I am going with a friend to hospital as she is having a colonoscopy. The hospital won't release her unless she has someone to drive her home and stay with her for a few hours. Originally her son was suppose to take her but something came up and he is unable too and I don't mind at all, except for my hair...yikes oh well my friend will have a good laugh before they put her out. (Still working on building the confidence) and I think she should go to sleep smiling anyway. I bought an Internet stick when I was shopping the other day so I am going to use it tomorrow for the first time, let's see if I can possibly mess that up.
Have a wonderful Friday my friends......Good Night and God Bless and as always I send you all.......many, many hugs.......:-)
