So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Norman Bates is my hairdresser

Well, not really, but if you would have seen the tub after I dyed my hair, you'd think so.

Note to self: don't dye your hair red while taking a bath. It was nasty. First off, the little glove things looked like they had menstrual blood all over them. I thought I was going to urp before I was done. Then, when I rinsed my hair, the tub looked like A) what I imagine those water births must look like when the afterbirth spews out or B) a scene from Psycho or C) a low-budget horror flick featuring shark bites.

My hair hasn't been this dark for about five years. Last time I went dark brown after Child No. 2 was born. Post-partum depression isn't a good time to make decisions about your hair style or color. But, we'll see how this goes. Will be weird to see dark hairs all over the place instead of my formerly blonde ones.

Another note to mention, Ultresse "medium reddish brown" should be named "super fucking auburn." On the up side, it was only $4.81 at Drug Emporium and promises "100 percent gray coverage" which is a plus for me.

Do you realize, I'm going to be 36 in less than two weeks? Yikes. 36. This one is hitting me the hardest of any birthday so far. 29 sucked, but wasn't THAT bad. 30 wasn't too bad. I took 35 in stride, but 36 is so close too 40 that it is really bumming me out.

Oh well. I'll have red hair for it.

    I forgot to mention the nasty smell of hair dye. Eww. I'm not sure how much I like my hair like this. I'm sure Army of Dad will hate it. I know my mom will hate it. *sigh*

    Don't sweat 40. 40 looks marvelous in my rear-view mirror.

    Cheers... homebru

    Ok, I did the dye thing recently, did the tub psycho episode thing too - your hair will lighten - keep washing it and it will look better. Also 36 isn't that bad - been there for 7 months and it's not so bad - really. Not much difference at all that I can tell - well other than that tooth that fell out. Just kidding.

    Later, Mom of 2 Boyz
