Take that, life list!!
I finally did the deed on Saturday. It was hella expensive, but I'm thrilled with the results. And given that I've saved jillions of dollars cutting my own hair for 2.5 years, I was probably overdue for some hair expenditure. What's crazy is that I can already see like a millimeter of dark roots, and I'm actually totally intrigued to see how fast my hair really grows. I always thought it was slow. Maybe it's completely average.
More than one person (including my mother) has told me "it just looks normal," which I think is a pretty great reaction. I feel funkier, that's for sure, but still like myself. A self that looks a bit pinker and wants to put on a little powder to mitigate. So a slightly more high-maintenance self.
So, one more item checked off my Ultimate To-Do List (I prefer this to "life list"). Speaking of which: auditions for Miss Hannigan in "Annie" came up in my blogfeed today. Unfortunately, it's for a production in a way-out suburb during a time I'm contracted to be teaching in Iowa. But it means the universe is listening.
