Daily Diary: Feeling Like Me Again – Hello Blond(er)

Screen Shot 2015-04-17 at 11.12.43 AM

The last time I got my hair done, I asked for low lights because I felt like I looked like one big blonde solid. My hairdresser did what I asked… but it was just too dark for me. Every single time I looked in the mirror, I turned away. I hated it! But I’m not someone to go back and get it fixed. I LITERALLY don’t have the time and I also recognize that the color is always just for a few months. I WILL SURVIVE – it’s never THAT big a deal.

I looked at my calendar this week and realized that I had to squeeze in a hair appointment on Thursday. It was the ONLY day I could go because for the next three weeks straight I will NOT be HOME. Can you believe that? I called a local place made my request.

Blonder please. ­čÖé

When we were done and I saw my new color… it felt like a weight was lifted off my shoulders. There I was!! I’ve missed me! The brown is actually my natural color. I KNOW. But I haven’t had my natural color for 24 years. Let’s be serious.

Isn’t that sad that I could write such a high number like 24 and actually mean it? Ugh.

I think I’ve been a little depressed the past few months. I cannot tell you how differently I feel ever since lightening up. I mean, if I can have such a change of attitude just by adjusting the tint of my hair… I’ll take it!

So, I’m ready for summer. I’m ready to tackle China. I’m ready to tackle LA as soon as I get back from China. I’m ready to tackle Disney as soon as I get back from LA and then I’m ready to celebrate my son’s communion!!! What a crazy time I’m about to dive into!! I’m probably going to lose my mind during it all…

My husband is going to have his hands full.
