Having posted my Observational Twitter yesterday, and not happily anticipating a haircut that was WAY overdue because of a less-than-favorable outcome last time, my daughter called and asked me if I wanted to go for drop-in hair cuts last night. I had been at a funeral earlier in the day and spent the afternoon with my mother and stepfather at the hospital. (He has been ill for years and took a turn for the worse.) I was in need of a dose of joy. Did I need a drop-in hair cut? Do I dare after what I just wrote?

All I have to say is, "Chim, my little hair dresser? I love you. What a great job you did. I actually felt GORGEOUS when I left. (Of course, Cinderella woke up this morning but the Ball was fun while it lasted!) And I had a date night with my daughter who IS actually still gorgeous this morning. And we talked and lingered and life was rich, even after a haircut. Maybe, even because of it.

Dinner with your daughter on a coupon? Affordable

Drop-in styling salon? Inexpensive

Sitting at dinner with someone you adore and both of you basking in the glow of a hair cut gone right? Priceless.

  1. And this post? PERFECT!!!!!!!! You bring me such joy with your writing! Always!!!! So glad that your haircut and night out proved the exception to your Observational Twitter Rule!! You deserve that!! Love to you, my dear friend~Janine XO

  2. Well! This does mean we get to see it, doesn't it? Have daughter take picture if possible. Or take the camera and turn it around and point it at yourself (these always turn out really horrible though, don't they?). Smiles and giggles for the post.

  3. Ahhhh!! That sounds like the Perfect Way to spend the evening. Now... we need the picture! xxxxxx

  4. What joy to hear from you again, no mention of anyone being sick..YEA!!! Only question, though ... where's the picture, Cinderella?

  5. We didn't have haircuts but the DD and I just had a dinner date with a coupon at IHOP the other night!

    What fun to sit and talk and giggle. My DD is at the stage where she is just starting to notice boys so I take great pains to tease her about the potential perils of dating and the strict requirements that her father will put on all potential suiters through upon showing up at the front door.

    she has just seen "Twilight" (over and over again) and still has the scene of Bella's father with the shotgun fresh in her memory.

    Those special times are just that, SPECIAL!


  6. Glad you liked your haircut and you were able to visit with your daughter - sounds like a perfect day!

  7. Getting a good haircut does lift the spirits a bit doesn't it?

    Sounds like a perfectly wonderful evening!

  8. What a delightful daughter! Thoughtful when her mom's having a bad day, and making it a good hair day!

  9. That is truly one of life's best moments - a "haircut gone right"!

  10. What a special night you had. Time alone with your daughter and a haircut too. It doesn't get any better than that.

  11. Awww.. lovely! I'm sure it was the company that made the haircut wonderful!

  12. How fun. Yes, I'm sure getting your haircut WITH your daughter made all the difference. You'll have to remember that next time you are due. So glad you had a happy outcome and it sounds like you're all better?

  13. It doesn't get much better than that... does it? :D
    I'm so glad you had such a special time with Bo, because you truly deserve it after all you've been through lately.

    Now where's the pic???

  14. Love a new haircut!
    I wondered how far away BO's college was and how often you got to see her. Hope you are feeling better and the PIG (that pig picture you used in the sick post is scary)is gone!

  15. It does sound like the perfect evening.

    I went for a trim a while back and when the lady twirl me around in the chair I was wondering who in the world is that bald headed woman in the mirror?? It was me of course.
    It grew back(after a while).

    Your hair cut sounds a lot better!!

    Have a great day.

  16. Hi Robynn, I've been so busy with my two jobs that I've fallen way behind with blog reading. trying to catch up tonight. If you don't hear from me for a few weeks don't worry,... you are still on my list and I'll be back on a normal schedule by mid-Nov. Luvya!

  17. A good hair cut can work wonders for the spirit!!!!!!

    It is wonderful though to spend time with our children one on one and just talk...I know I enjoy it!


  18. Love this post! So glad that you not only got a fabulous haircut but that you got to enjoy time with your daughter in the process. :)

  19. I'm glad you like your haircut! Which reminds me - I need a haircut! LOL! And time spent with daughters - there is nothing better!

    I hope your step-father is feeling better. Hugs and Blessings.

  20. I'm glad you got a haircut you're happy with. I've had many bad ones!

    I hope your stepfather is doing better.


  21. What a wonderful thing to be able to say. I'd love to see the photo and I'm so happy your feeling fabulous.
