Hair cut on the cheap
After my run this morning I couldn’t help but notice the nastiness that is my hair. Suddenly I just couldn’t stand the length and dryness of it. I haven’t gotten a haircut since November of 2008. Yes, you read that right. November of 2008. I’ve been putting off going to the salon because quite frankly, I’m broke and would rather spend the 50 bucks elsewhere, like the grocery store. Before I knew it I was standing in front of the bathroom mirror with an old rusty scissor and a small compact. Time for a hair cut, ladies. Please keep in mind that I have no clue what I’m doing. I parted my hair in the middle and separated in into two sides. Please don’t mind the sweaty face and running mascara.
Without so much as a measure or even wetting my hair– snip snip, snip. Okay, don’t freak out. Grab the other side-snip, snip, snip.
Definitely not even. I could use some layers.
Shit! Too many layers but there’s no turning back. Here’s the final product.
Len’s going to even it out tonight. Well, I’m certainly not in love with it but I saved 50 bucks!
I went to mimi this morning and we scratched the three category rule. I told her that it was too hard for me to start the days off accepting a binge. For next week I simply have to journal what I eat and the times. I had a hard tome conceptualizing what I eat so she wants to see it for herself. We may or may not going back to the category strategy down the road. I told her I was thinking about the no flour/no sugar diet and she said that if I wanted to try if for a week to see how it feels I should, but that it’s not the solution. She’s right but it would feel damn good to clear my system of all it’s processed toxins. The rest of my therapy was spent talking about the dysfunctions within my family. My parents just finalized a dirty divorce so Mimi has been my sounding board. I don’t care what people say, divorce is hard regardless of how grown the kids are. Moving forward.
Have you ever had a day when it seems you break everything you touch? I’m pretty sure I just broke our washer and dryer. Sparks were flying and both machines just shit then bed. Not so awesome since I have wet clothes sitting in them. Then, after doing a little more trimming to the hair, I broke my damn sunglasses!! So annoying. Good news is that the sun is shinning and I just got some goodies at Trader Joe’s. The refried bean/hot sauce/hummus combo is back in action.
Back later with my grub!
