Every day I learn more and more about....

....me. Like today. I realized I have "3-week hair". Does anyone else?

My hair is short, so week one - after the salon, too short.

Week 2 - growing out just a little and PERFECT! Love it even when I first get up in the morning!

Week 3 - just TOO long enough to be BAD. Can't lay right, has the cow-lick things all over. Won't stand up right.

And Heaven forbid I should look at it from the back! ICK! Looks like I've slept on my back for days!

Geesh.

But, being the frugal girl I'm trying to be...I wait..

3 weeks, 3 1/2 weeks, 4 weeks...then when I can't stand it one more minute - I get it cut....

...too short. And the cycle continues.

Oh well. Even bad hair days beat no-hair days!

Mr. B used to say, after I had colored my hair the umpteenth time, "I'd like it even if you were bald"...

Poor guy. Guess he never thought I'd make him prove it. But I did....and he did. Like me bald. Won't go there again, but it was good to know he liked my bald, round head.


Note to self: call the hairdresser TOMORROW before it gets to be a disaster!

PS: can you tell who is the REAL Cabbage Patch baby??




Have a hair-raising good day tomorrow, will ya??!!

Yes, you looked like a sweet cabbage patch kid. I always thought they were adorable! I, too, get my hair cut every four weeks... and have the same feelings about week one, week two, etc. I think we were cut from the same fabric! I'll email you the pineapple cake recipe later today.

Oooh, you have one of those really pretty heads...you know, the kind some actresses are willing to show on camera...like Sigourney Weaver in the Alien series. You do have a nicely shaped head! Betty

I will just say Amen to all that you said. It is me to a tee. I don't know why we can't stay in second week mode.

Well, I have -0- week hair...I lost so much of my hair due to an illness when I was 13 and it never grew back. So, even after it is cut and styled, I still see my scalp shining thru. I am grateful that I do have SOME hair, but envy those who have thick shiny hair.
Hugs,
Penny
