ahhh....

I'm trying to figure out which came first... the chicken or the egg.

The beginning of this pregnancy was very difficult for me. I know there are those of you out there who are puking for months and months, and though I'm sorry for you, that was not the trial I have. For whatever reason, I've been really struggling with my mood through this pregnancy. Especially during the first several months, the fatigue and nausea really complicated everything. Now that the nausea is past, (the fatigue never goes away-I'm a Mom! LOL) I've just been feeling rather "blah". I complained to my husband the other day about how I don't feel very attractive, people are telling me I look huge (see 2 blog posts ago), etc etc etc. Poor me. I have to admit, I really wanted to hear from my husband how beautiful I look, however what I got was: "well, what are you going to do about it?".

Today I took his advice, and went and got my hair cut. I have to admit to being VERY delinquent in this part of my life. The last time I had my hair cut was before my sister's wedding last JUNE! Although I've had a few good hair days: I've had a lot more bad than good. But when you aren't feeling good anyway, what does it matter?

I'm so excited to feel good about my hair for the first time in a long time. I love short hair! It is SOOOOO much easier than long hair to manage. I was feeling so good today, I got a bunch accomplished! I framed 2 of my pictures and got an order of cards ready to go. That is on top of the laundry and dishes and all the other must do's. So, the question remains, do I really feel better because of my haircut, or was I beginning to feel better and wanted the new haircut to mirror how I feel. hmmm... Anyway, what do you think?

very cute, Cheryl! i like! there's nothing like spending a little time/effort on oneself to lift the spirits, especially when pregnant! (except maybe the hubby noticing and appreciating...) :) hope your mood is better than passable the rest of your pregnancy!

Cute Hair! I love short hair; it's just easier, especially with little ones. Who has time to spend in front of a mirror all morning doing hair that will only get "moused up" with chocolate pudding, gogurts, and crackers?
