Wee! I cut my hair! Huzzah!

You girls were absolutely right: I don't regret it at all! I feel a couple pounds lighter (this might help with the neck pain I've had, me thinks...), and this is going to give me a nice fresh start on maintaining healthier long hair. To top it all off, it's a wonderful feeling to know that, in any case, it's going to be doing someone some good.

More than regretting it, or anything, it just feels STRANGE. I'm so used to keeping track of where my hair is at--i.e. not being stepped on when I sit on the floor, or getting slammed in the car door--it feels like I've lost a limb or something. I just braided it, and when I came to the end of my hair it was unnatural to just stop there. It felt like it should keep going... Rather freeing, actually. ^^ Washing it is going to be so much easier now, too.

Yes, I'm quite euphoric about it. Thanks again for the emotion support you all provided, there, in my dilemma. ;-)

And...*drum roll*...Cami did it too! It was wonderful to do it together, like we do pretty much everything. *huggles her* She didn't have any time to accustom herself to the idea (she decided on the spot after I had it done), so I know she's having a bit more trouble than me coming to terms with it. But now we get to grow it back out together, and maybe donate again. *grin*

To top it all off, it looks like our bathroom might be finished as soon as tomorrow! *in Kusco-voice*: I'm so happy...

*is definitely on her "groove"*

*boing*

I always think that's the weirdest thing about getting a lot of hair cut off at a time. I'll be brushing it, or combing it, and I'm so used to going farther that I keep overcompensating--kind of like picking up a jug of milk when you think it's full, only to find that it's actually empty.

I am glad you like it, mellon-nin! And I hope Cami grows to like hers too. :)

Oh, I know! The milk jug example describes the feeling exactly... I am getting used to it, though (and I still haven't broken down crying, or anything, so I think that's a good sign, lol). I think Cami's getting used to it too. ;)

Like I told your sis, way brave of you! I'm glad you did it for a good cause. Gives me warm fuzzy feelings. ;D

Have fun with more manageable hair!

*strikes heroic pose* =P Honestly, though, I didn't think it would feel as good as it does to have donated my hair. A young girl at our church lost all her hair during chemotherapy, and it does give ya the warm fuzzies to think of someone like her benefiting. ^^

W00t, w00t!!! *dances a jig*

*slips and falls* Ow. :P

Oh well, congratulations, Neffy! :D See? It's not so bad, is it? Just takes some getting used to. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. And way to strike up the courage! :D

Heehee... *dances along with Niro* Thanks, mellon-nin, it has been a terrific expirience all 'round. *hugs*

Congratulations! I went to get my hair trimmed and the hairdresser took 4 inches off while I was telling her how many compliments I was getting on my longer layered hair. I kept towels over mirror for weeks! I'm glad you didn't have any regrets on your new 'do'.

Aww, nautika, that sounds like a nightmare! It was scary enough getting inches (plural *gulp*) cut off, and I had time to prepare myself for a change... *hugs* And to think, haircuts are such casual affairs for some people. ^^
