Instant Gratification

I am 42 (almost 43) years old, and have NEVER had long hair. Even as a kid. Many futile attempts to grow it out has always ended in a very panicked call to my hair stylist with the words "I NEED MY HAIR CUT IMMEDIATELY!"

Then last year, a little over a year ago, I knew I was going to have a hysterectomy, so I knew I wanted to change things up a little in my life - I was questioning my mortality - so before I kicked the bucket, I knew there where a few things on the "to-do list". So

a. I got a tattoo and
b. I decided to grow my hair out for once........really...

And now at this point in my life - one more thing on the list I am working on - GET HEALTHY, LOSE WEIGHT, and try to regain some semblance of the once 20 year old body I had.........

Well my friends - that is taking a lot FRIGGIN LONGER THAN I ANTICIPATED.

But now that my hair is long(er) I can find instant gratification in changing up that look. I have never had curly hair either - or straightened - or a pony tail or what have you.

How fun for me now..................while I wait for the lean, (gulp), sexy, (choke) healthy (sniff) body to appear.

I'm waiting!!!!!!!...............

Carissa - you are so funny, because I started Photoshopping out my freckles and it wasn't working too good!!! Ok, my tattoo - I read Angels and Demons and became fascinated with ambigrams. So I found a tattoo website that had the word "love" ambigram-style. And there you have it - well, no, I have it - on my lower back.
