I’ve forgotten how physically and emotionally draining the first trimester of pregnancy can be. I have been so exhausted lately that when I exit the bath or shower, instead of battling my long hair, I just swirled it into a bun atop my head without brushing it, and left it like that until the next bath or shower.

I chopped it all off a few days ago.

My hair stylist is one of my best friends, and when I went to the salon and told her what I wanted, she laughed. She thought I was joking. Then I almost grabbed her shears and did it myself. THEN she took me seriously.

And gave me a cute cute that is virutally maintenance free, although I still have to wash it every now and then. Sigh.
