Hair and Creepy People.

So I realize that I haven't given any updates on the growing out of the hair process since I started it over forty days ago for the beginning of Lent.

The fact is, I did it.  I don't know what I'm going to do next.  Part of me wants to shave it off and continue in my normal hair pace.  My husband is hoping for that option.  He said that he feels like I never felt comfortable in my "old hair" and that this hair cut feels more natural for me.  I know that it will take forEVER to grow my hair long enough for dreads.  One of the biggest reasons for dreads is because in a few years, when my daughter is six or so, we are hoping to hike the Appalachian Trail.  I wanted to have dreads for that because I wouldn't be able to maintain the shaved head thing on the trail.  The dreads, if they were mature by then (I'd have about three years to get them there) would be much less maintenance.  So it might be worth it in the end.  On the other hand, my husband is right.  When I had long hair, I liked it in the sense that I had options when it came to style.  I didn't like it in the sense that I never wanted to take the time to style it.  I always just tossed it into a ponytail and went on about my day. 

So that's my dilemma, and I'm just going to go ahead and think about it awhile.  It feels so trite to so many blog entries about hair.  Most people could probably not care less about what I decide, so I'll stop right there.

In other news, I've been thinking about who is reading my blogs.  I know who is following, because there they are at the bottom of the page.  Many of those people I know personally.  On facebook, I can check their profile, picture, information, what have you. can read this blog any time you want to without following it.  You can follow it anonymously.  And so I'm going to be more careful about talking about where I am and what I'm doing.

This particular blog has struck inflammatory chords with folks more than once.  I'm not sorry about those entries, but I would like to keep it in the blogosphere, so I'm going to be more careful about what I say here. 

If someone was that keen on figuring out where I was, I suppose it wouldn't be all that difficult for them to do it, but inviting difficulty is just stupid.

So...if you see changes in privacy policies floating around this place, that's the reason.  If you notice less linkage to local places and events, you'll understand.

Hoping everyone's Easter was so fantastic.

Mine was LOVELY.  You can't ask for more than spending Easter with a community of people who love one another. 

Take care of yourselves.
