Nu Do

So I got a new haircut today. It feels really good but I don't quite recognize myself in the mirror yet. I was told it might be a while before I can lift my hands above my head after the surgery, plus I thought I would transition myself to the possibility of chemo effects, so I thought, "Why not?" and before I knew it my tennis buds were scheming with the stylist over some very scary ideas. This is what we ended up with. But we'll see what it looks like tomorrow after I wash it.

How cool was it that my stylist "happened" to have have gone through all this with her mum, who is a 16 year survivor at 75 years old!

Love your new hair do. Now that you have a taste of short hair you may never go back to longer hair. I had mine cut that short and it was down to my waist at the time. It took a few days for me to get used to it. When I first had it cut I came home and stood in front of the mirror and tried to brush it and make it longer (crying and saying to myself "what did I do").
This makes me think of the time you were little and got Mother's manicure set which had an electric brush in it. It was the size of a pencil. You got a hold of it turned it on and put it in your hair and it got all twisted up and Mother had to cut it out. She was so afraid to tell you mom and dad. At this time your hair had never been cut.

love and hugs

It is soooo cute and not as short as I was expecting after talking to you today. It is definetly a good style for you and a great idea! As Becca said today, "She is always cute and will be no matter what hair style she has". By the way, the cup thing went right over my head! I just thought it was a beautiful sentiment. Love you, Debbie
