Love & Hair

Two things pertinent to this post are going on in my life right now: my hair is too long and I haven’t seen Jay in two weeks. Both things are unfortunate. Tomorrow afternoon I will be reunited with my husband so I’m using that as an excuse to get my hair cut in the morning. I suppose I shouldn’t need an excuse to get a haircut, but it always feels a little self-indulgent. Maybe that’s because in order to get a haircut I have to ask someone else has to watch Dylan, so I’m putting someone else out for the sake of my vanity. I know my mom, who will be watching Dylan, doesn’t feel “put out” so its really not a big deal, but these are the things that I think about. I basically always feel guilty about something.

At any rate, I sort of want to chop off my hair. I actually want to go almost Anne Hathaway short.


But I totally won’t. Jay would hate it. He has told me on many occasions that he does not want me to have boy-short hair. I think I can grant him that one.

Earlier today I found a few styles that I like and threw them up on a webpage so that I could get Jay’s long-distance opinion. Here’s a link: Shortish Hairstyles

I was on the phone with Jay when he clicked on the link and within two seconds of looking at the pictures he had decided on the style he liked best. I then got (pretend) very upset with him and accused him of not really considering how each look would look on me. I had to remind him that his decision has to be made on what he thinks of the hair and not his attraction to the celebrities in the pictures. He then humored me by going through each picture one by one and telling me what he liked and/or didn’t like with each style. In the end, he stuck to his original favorite. Later, my sister, Kelly, also looked at styles and had the same favorite as Jay so I will go with that one tomorrow.

Jason is flying into Boston around 2 pm tomorrow and it just so happens that my aunt and uncle are throwing their annual holiday party sort of near Boston so I’m going to be meeting Jason at their house with Dylan. I wanted to get a new outfit to go along with my new hair but it never transpired. I looked in TJ Maxx yesterday and Express today but I couldn’t find anything notable. I did pick up a random blue shirt at Express but its short sleeved and lightweight so I might be cold if I wear it. All of this is to say, I wanted to look extra good when I see Jay tomorrow but I’ll probably just look normal and possibly cold.

Jason always primps before we see each other after a long stretch apart. He looks great when he picks Dylan and me up from the airport whereas I usually look airport-dingy.

This text exchange happened today:


(FYI – The movie he is referring to is this one: In Search of the Perfect Human Diet. Check it out!)

So, I bet you’re wondering which hair style Jason and Kelly both picked. Well, you’re just going to have to check back to find out!!!
