the fine line

I have my Mom's hair... straight... fine... limp. After all of these years, I have accepted it... I guess. I still look longingly at ladies, long curls... and dream. I have considered perming my hair again... just a little.. to give it a little lift- but Eric said NO (not that his opinion matters that much)but my hairdresser also made quite a face- so I abandoned that notion... at least outloud. And I continue to try to use whatever I can find to give me that extra... bounce. But oh, how I wish for those curls. If I had curls, would I hate them like so many that possess them? I hope not- and I don't think so, because I don't hate my hair now. The other day I noticed, once again, that my sister has curl (real curl!) in her hair. I guess nothing is ever fair... but, as Mom always says It may not be fair now, but it'll always even out in the end!

We always want what we don't have. Right?
Now that my hair is cut short...TOO short. I forgot that I DO have curl in my hair...but only in the back and it is unruly. ;)
I have to blow it out straight anyway....never happy. never. ;)
I suppose bald would be worse.

I thought your hair was cute- and it looked good in your birthday picture! But I know... if we don't like it, it doesn't matter what anyone says...
