I got a new haircut a few weeks ago, and I love it, but… it has thrown off my whole routine!
Who would think a haircut could change the course of one’s day?! Laugh at me if you will (because this maybe does sound a little ridiculous :-)), but I can assure you that my haircut has messed me up. Suddenly I’m styling longer, serving breakfast later, schooling whenever… and it’s at least in part because my new do requires a morning shampoo.
Back in August, when we first added homeschooling to our daily routine, I discovered the joys of showering at night. I could go to bed refreshed and relaxed, and I could wake up ready to go. My medium-length hair was long enough and heavy enough to ward off bed head, and fixing my hair for the day was almost effortless. Cutting down on my getting ready time meant completing the breakfast routine earlier and starting school in time to be done well before lunch.
However, now that my locks aren’t as long, I wake up with some seriously wild hair. Apparently, sleeping on short hair, whether freshly washed or still containing the styling products that made it look cute during the day, is a recipe for not-so cute hair in the morning.
So… re-enter, Morning Showers and Blow Drying! Back up, Breakfast! Hang tight, Homeschool! Mama’s got a new do, and she hasn’t quite figured out how to work it… and still work it….
