it's not exactly what i wanted. i was hoping to preserve more length. i was hoping to only cut off four inches, but the scissors were not in my hands. thankfully my hair grows fast. the other thing that was hard to deal with was the way she styled it. she used a small round brush to dry it and it was very boingy, reminiscent of curling your whole head of hair under with a 2 inch curling iron. not flattering. anywhooo, i guess i am stuck with it for a while.
in other news, i was slightly annoyed with one of the comments from the stylist. she asked me what i "do" and i said that i take care of my children. she then replied, "oh, i want kids but i could never do that." is this annoying to anyone else? i know she wasn't trying to slight me, but it doesn't sound like a compliment either. this is not the first time i have gotten that reaction either. if a person thinks that staying home with your children is a difficult job, they need to just say that. don't make a remark that sounds like what i am doing is boring, unfulfilling, undesireable, _________ you fill in the blank. sure, sometimes i am bored and sometimes i really don't like cleaning up messes. once in a while i yell. and i don't like waking up early. occasionally i really want to wear dry clean only clothes and go off by myself and sit in an office and prove to the world that i am smart, accomplished and important. but i'm not here to prove anything to the world. i only need to prove things to God and my family. that is all. what i really wanted to say to the stylist was "fine, if you don't want to stay home, then don't have kids. kids are not an accessory. they are not trendy. we don't have kids because they are the latest thing that hollywood is doing. kids need you more than anything or anyone else. " ***
but i don't, i just smile and grit my teeth and think evil thoughts.
