Do you realize that? Yesterday was the first day of winter, which means today, we'll have more sunlight than yesterday. Chris laughs at me when I note things like that (it actually frustrates him when we're sitting on the beach in the summer and I tell him I smell autumn in the air, but many times I do). But now, while in this teen degree weather, I do not smell spring coming, I do take comfort knowing that today will be longer than yesterday and tomorrow longer than today.
And with that, I shaved my head yesterday. Not a number 1 but a number 6 and I didn't do it myself, my friend Alison came over and did it (the strength and support of people continues to amaze me). It's actually more comfortable because one of the things I didn't realize, when you lose your hair, it actually hurts. Every time I would touch my hair, it felt like someone was yanking at the roots. Every time I rolled over in bed, the pain woke me. Last night I slept soundly and deeply because I was just more comfortable.
It's such a hard decision for women but for me, who already had short hair, and never cared for my hair (more of a nuisance than anything), it felt right and I feel better about this decision with each passing moment. I am wearing my wig this morning though, only because I need to get used to it, and in the hopes of freaking Sammi out a little less (Becky was cool with my decision and was actually the photographer for it but it freaked Sam).
So without further ado - the buzzing of Kim.
We Started With a Number 8
Then We Moved on to the Number 6
And Ended with a Number 6
Oh, and don't worry about those bangs, Al trimmed them with scissors.
