Say goodbye locks...

Say hello locks of love...today was kinda hard. Today is the last day that I will have my beautiful long hair before I get it chopped tomorrow. It hit me this evening...and as I was getting ready to go meet my Loco girls. Wow, this is the last time I will be straightening MY long hair. Seems surreal. I haven't had hair this long since I was a kid and the fact that I worked so hard at it and I have to lose it and it's NOT my choice really hurts, but hey, I gotta face it. I'm looking forward to a drastic change tomorrow. It's going to be great...I'm sure tears will be shed...but what's done will be done and I'm sure in the end it will be liberating. I mean who wants a long mop hanging down their neck when it's 110 out? Not me...I'd prefer to be bald. HAHA.

Today was the best I have felt since one week ago that I started treatment. I had great energy, I actually made coffee this morning, I got a lot done, ran some errands and fit in a couple zzzz's too. So, overall it was a GOOD day...just a little emotional.

Spending time with the Loco girls tonight was amazing. I wish we could do it more often, but we can't. This was a special circumstance and I'm so glad we were all able to get together outside of work and just have fun. I needed that. It was a great way to end an overall great day. :)

So, tomorrow is a busy one...probably the busiest day I have had in a long time. I mean I have to set my alarm clock to get up tomorrow. I don't think I have done that in a few weeks...what a life, huhh? I'm ready though...hope it tires me out so I can sleep like a baby tomorrow night in preps for surgery bright and early tomorrow...

I'm off to sleep with my long hair one last time....

Till tomorrow....

Love, E
