Neglected mom

I'm sorry everybody...I know that you were all hoping that the next post would show you a picture of my ugly hair and I did try, but it broke the camera! So while I'm waiting for a new camera I realized that I forgot to say anything about my mom for Mother's Day.

I wrote a post about my dad and how much he means to me, but I didn't really say much about my mom. My mom is a strong woman who has a very gentle and emotional side. But rarely does she share that side of herself because she believes that people will take advantage of a tender heart. People who know me know that I love my mom but we also agree that it's best if there is limited weekly contact. She use to tell me that she was the alpha in our home and there wasn't going to be enough room for both of us as adults. WOW...she was so right! But all of that said, my mom makes me laugh and reminds me when it's time to pull myself together.

I know that there are parts of myself that my mom doesn't agree with or understand, but I also know that she feels strongly that only she can have those negative feelings...nobody else in the world is allowed to treat me that way. And while that is dysfunctional, I love that she always has my back! I'm not sure that this really pays tribute to my mom in the way that it is intended, but honestly I wouldn't trade my mom for the world. She loves me, defends me and supports me even when I disappoint her and I love her. here is the moment that you all have been waiting for! I know that it is bad and I am trying to schedule another appointment to have it corrected (please keep your fingers crossed that it's possible).

Okay, so this picture was taken a few months ago when I had a make over so that is why I have so much make up. But the hair is the important part. I love that blond!

OKAY...HERE IT IS AND DON'T LET THE SMILE FOOL YOU. It only looks worse when I am not smiling.

OMG!!!! WTF happened to me? I am not meant to have dark hair and it's not cute. I don't even know about the cut because I am blinded by the color. Ugh. Please keep your fingers crossed that she can change it to something that doesn't make me look old, ugly and UGLY!

i like it, and i am not just being kind... i went from blonde to brown and am now nearly back to blonde.... its fun to have change... if you really hate it get some blonde streaks and get more and more until its how you like... its not bad! I promise!

I think it looks good and honestly, I think you look younger with the dark hair.

Hmmm...I think the cut looks good and I agree with Suze, I think the dark hair looks younger. Stacey has a good suggestion about getting streaks. Maybe it was just too much change for you all at once!

Stacey - thanks for the suggestion. And I am so excited for you both!

Suze - oh friend you said the right words.

Wendy - first time I have heard anything about the cut. Thanks. It was all too much too quick.

I like it... change is always good. My hair was more blonde and now I just got some lowlights put in so it is much darker!
