Margo asked...

"Is your hair pulled back or did you really cut it off?!"

It is really cut off. Fun Story: It was not my intention to go that short. You see, I decided that I could do an ok job cutting my hair myself b/c I always come home after a haircut and trim it up a bit anways. (And, ironically, I didn't want to spend the money.) Well trimming and full-blown cutting are two very different things. I screwed it up. I wore it like that for a week or two b/c it wasn't that bad. But then, one Friday morning I decided that I should really get it fixed. A friend suggested Wondercuts b/c it was cheap and they did a good job on her hair. So I went. I came home with an even worse cut and, of course, a shorter cut. I tried to fix it up a bit myself - didn't work. Just got shorter. It looked so bad that Saturday morning I "splurged" and went to the JC Penney's Salon. It's still not something I would have chosen in the beginning, but I am no longer embarassed to go out in public. And, I'm liking it much better now that I have discovered the magic of bobbypins!

I'm thinking that I might just let it grow back long again...This is too much stress!

Lucky just to get all three on the couch and not crying!

Hot Date!

I had a hot date this morning! Drew stayed home w/ the girls and Jed and I got to go out. We had breakfast at Burger King and then went to Girard Park. It was possibly my best 2 hours with Jed ever! It was just really rejuvenating to spend the time with just him, doing just the stuff he wanted to do. (As opposed to running errands.) I've been wanting to start doing this for some time now, and he is now at an age where he really appreciates doing stuff like that. I keep trying to figure out how to describe how cool it was to spend this time with him...he wasn't the tormentous older brother or the crazy chicken-with-his-head-cut-off kid. He was such a joy to be with. It was a great reminder that I really am raising a little man...with an incredible personality.

If you'd like to 'date' Jed sometime, just let me know. I'm sure he'd love it.
