Mrs. Potato Head, I Made You.

I feel like I need to start over, start fresh with myself. I had one of the epiphanies where I knew it was time for a change. This time I meant it. Over 5 years ago I quit smoking. I had started smoking at a very young age and had been for years. One day I woke up and decided to quit. Thatís exactly what I did. From that morning on, (except for the occasional drunken bar dork nights) I never smoked again. I wonder why that doesnít work where my weight loss is concerned. I guess it would be too drastic to wake up one morning and decide never to eat again. OK, Iím trailing off here Well, since I quit taking my meds 2 weeks ago I am just now starting to feel human again. DTs are a killer let me tell you. Well, as I was saying I wanted another drastic change to start a new me. I looked in the mirror this morning and thought, ďAack.Ē I told Kelly to take my picture. This was me, at 8:30 this morning.
And yes my hair IS brushed. Since I cannot drop 50 pounds over night I opted to something very drastic for me. I called a salon and made an appointment to cut my hair. For those of you who donít know me, this may seem very dull and uneventful. For those of you who DO know me, this is a VERY big deal. The appointment was for 10:30 this morning so I didnít chicken out. I have pretty much had the same exact hairstyle my entire life. And though the look went out somewhere around 1989 I remained faithful to it. I always felt I had a head shaped like a potato and short hair would accentuate that. I loved having long hair anyway. I dyed it a lot over the years though and brush it like itís a horses tail and so it has been looking mighty straw like. Well, you can see from the picture. And since Iím in Austria, I donít think Iíll be called for one of Mauryís magic makeovers anytime soon. So I went and held back the tears and the fright as they whacked away at my scraggly tresses. Wanna see the results? I know you canít wait right?
So there you have it, the first step of my BIG CHANGE. I am getting used to it, and you know what? Itís not so bad, even with my potato head.
