I promise you that after this post I will no longer bring up the bangs.
But, really I shall try not to talk about it because I realize that it’s uninteresting.
This morning I decided that there was still just something about the bangs that I didn’t dig. I think it was that they were just a tad too long to wear straight across, but just felt funky doing the side swoop.
After a text from my hair stylist (not the bang cutter, but my life long hair stylist who saw my post on facebook) that read: “BANGS !!!!” I knew that I needed to go in and see what she thought.
Luckily she didn’t hate me for getting bangs behind her back. Phew. And when I was there I decided that I wanted them to be just a tad shorter so that I could wear them straight across.
And voila, there you have it, the whole “new” look that I was going for. Although I am not sure I ever imagined I would do something so drastic.
I still don’t recognize myself when I look in the mirror. Here are a few things that I have heard today after people see me with my bangs:
Co-workers: “You look younger!”
*Yes please. I’ll take that as a compliment.
Husband: “Can I call you Samantha?”
*Ummmm, I suppose husband. But I do find that strange. Maybe he has something for Samanthas? I guess I’ll just start calling him George.
P Man: “Are you my mommy?”
“Your a stranger.”
“Take your hair off.”
And last but not least, I think I frightened the h*** out of Bents. He just looked at me like “who are you and what’s that on your forehead”.
At least this way I can wear them straight across OR to the side. I like options people. They are starting to grow on me some, but it’s gonna take some time for me to get use to them.
Also, TODAY WAS MY LAST OFFICIAL DAY OF WORK! For real.
I am staying on per diem in case they need me to come in and help in the future with education, but for now….I AM FINISHED! It kinda feels nice. I will miss my co-worker’s dearly, but I have promised them all that I will come in to hassle them frequently.
Letting go of all the stress that comes with my job feels so freeing. My only stress now will be my 3 little rug rats. We all know that they are enough stress to send me to the looney bin so I should be good.
Speaking of stress reliever, I am leaving on a girls shopping trip tomorrow with 2 of my besties, Katie & Kelly! No kids. No husbands. Just women, food, and shopping. Hello. I will be in heaven briefly. I plan to report back with lots of good finds!
And thank you all for leaving such sweet comments and personal bangs stories on my last post!
