Three years ago, my hair was below the shoulders.

Two years ago, after I lost 40 pounds, I got it cut in a chin length bob.

Last month I got it cut in a kind of bushy mid-short cut that I couldn’t really get used to.

So tonight, I went and got it cut very, very, very short. I’m very excited about it.

My husband, always a long-hair man, said, “What makes you think that’s even remotely attractive?”

Luckily I don’t depend on him for validation.

    Indeed. I, myself, like the ‘Jamie Lee Curtis with a finger stuck in a light socket’ look and would have it RIGHT NOW if a snow storm hadn’t stopped me in my gimpy tracks today.

    Oh, yeah!

    When I washed it and just let it dry, it came out kind of bushy, but Bedhead something or other to the rescue!

    I gotta get someone to take a picture.

    Sounds like your husband should grow his hair out ;-)

    Congrats on the haircut, and sorry about the insensitive comment–I’m glad you don’t get your validation from him!

    He’s a trip. I’m giving him a hard time, but reminding him that in the dark, he doesn’t have to see the hair…

    Whoa! Although I have been known to hand out pretty severe penances for insensitivity, blinding him sounds a little extreme…

    I like it! I’m a short haired girl myself. I think it just takes time to get used to change and maybe he’s just not quick on the uptake.

    The dog is pretty damn cute too.

    She is adorable, isn’t she? And she knows it.
