one week

It's been one whole week since we got the bad news.

It feels like it's been a decade. Or two.

I'm doing just ok today. I'm here. I'm surviving. I'm not happy, but I'm not distraught.

I'm trying to focus on upcoming good things. There aren't many I can think of right now, other than my hair appointment on Wednesday. I need a change. Hopefully getting a stylish new cut, as well as a dye job. Thinking of ombre. My hair is currently a bit of a reddish brown. Aiming to have it dark, dark brown, with some caramel ombre highlights. If my new stylist gives me any reason to doubt her ombre-ability, however, I'm going for just the normal dye job.

Here are some pics of what I'm thinking (ranging from least-dramatic to most-dramatic):

I wish I could put forth the kind of effort I exert looking for photos of hairstyles into my work. I am working on three projects simultaneously, and can't make any headway on any of them. Now I'm starting to shut down because I'm overwhelmed. I hate this feeling. The same thing happened to me when I needed to write my thank-you cards after our wedding.

Other than the hair thing, I'm actually looking forward to eating healthier and exercising again. I have gained 8 pounds in two weeks. EIGHT. Thank you, Ben & Jerry's. Thank you, bakery cookies. Thank you, Cocoa Pebbles. I'm an emotional eater, can you tell?

  3. I say go for the ombre. Saw this pic right after I read your post:

    I've been planning a new hair color too. In the desperate search for positives in this situation, I realized I don't have to wait until the second trimester.

  6. I like all three looks. I think pampering yourself and getting a new look is just what the doctor ordered. :)

  7. I like all of the hair choices!

    I am with you on the emotional eating. Cookie dough is my weakness, uncooked Nestle's Tollhouse chocolate chip cookie dough!

  8. ooooh nice hair, so THAT's ombre-ing. Hoping you get truly ombrefied in the way you desire.

    Long week huh, time has morphed? Its a crazywalk, but the numbness/apathy (I found, anyway) can be a real buttfuck - out of all the polarity emotions
