Since I'm trying to use this space to journal (thanks to my sister Pam's posting) I thought I better enter the real story about the hair cut. Okay, so after 8 years of long hair, same style, same length, I thought I should change it a little, give it a little more shape. So. . . I tried to give myself some layers. I have since learned that you pull the hair out to the side of your head and kind of slice down it to do create long layers. Like I said, I've since learned that. What I did was take a few random pieces and cut them off - straight off. My hair was wet when I was doing this and I thought it looked pretty good. Well, when I styled my hair, I quickly disovered I had created a shelf. Essentially, I had one length of hair - about the length you see in the pictures, and then the length of the rest of my hair. Ridiculous was all I kept seeing. I looked Ridiculous!! This was on Friday night. I tried to just ignore what I had done and carry on with my day on Saturday. As I went through the day, however I kept feeling Ridiculous!! So, Jeff said - you'll just call Raquel and she can fix it for you. Well, upon calling Raquel to see if she could fix it, she wouldn't be able to do it until Thursday. Sunday morning as I was getting ready for church, I felt like an idiot. I couldn't do it. I told Jeff he'd have to cut it all off. So he did and this is the result. I did have Raquel trim it up for me on Thursday and she did a great job giving it more shape. Lesson learned - when you want a new style - let the professionals do it (no offense to Jeffrey).
