Hair, part deux

Okay, I decided I'd post a picture of my bangs. They don't always make me happy, but I'm stuck with them til...til I figure out if I'll keep them.

One tidbit: at church a few weeks ago, a very kind friend noticed them & asked me about them. I explained how I don't know quite what to do with them to make them look good. She is a really great hairstylist, and she offered to help me with them. But I loved the look she had on her face when I told her I'd cut them myself. A little bit of horror, a little bit of pity all mixed into one. She'd probably die if I told her most of the time, my hair is cut by my husband. He can do a straight line, which is really all I require. Maybe in another lifetime I'll be more posh. But it works for me!

But, as I accepted the offer for help, I wondered if it was because they looked awful, or if she was just trying to help me feel more confident with them. She's so nice that I like to think it's the confidence factor. What can you do?

So here are a few pics. It makes me feel self-conscious to post them, but oh well.

I'm all squinty. But you get the idea.

With my dad on Mother's Day. I miss the man that he used to be. Alzheimers sucks.

Oh look so cute. I love the bangs. And, as for the woman at church, I'm sure she was trying trying to be nice.

I love that picture of you and your dad. How sweet.

You look pretty in those pictures. I am so sorry about your dad. Alzheimers does suck...bad.

I have thought every time I've seen you since the new bangs that you look so cute! I think you did an awesome job cutting them, too. I'm sure the girl at church was just wanting to seem helpful, since it's her specialty and all. I tried cutting John's hair a few times and my sister was appalled that I would do that. She acts the same way when I cut my kids' hair. I think it makes her feel like she's not needed, and nobody likes that!
