Mid-Life Crisis

I am sure, absolutely positive, that mid-life crises don't only happen to men. I'm forty-two and I feel as if time is slipping away from me. More often I feel I need to be accomplishing something and I never seem to get around to doing whatever it is I need to do.

It's time for a change. Ready to do something funky cool with my old self. I'm still doing the Weight Watchers thing, and the weight's coming off, slowly. That's how I want it to happen; slowly and steadily so that I develop better eating habits. No more crazy crash diets for me. Also, I have looked the same for several years and I'm tired of me. I've had short hair for a while and I'm letting it grow a little. In the meantime, should I have it highlighted? What color? Wild blond streaks or red or what? If not the hair, then what about a new piercing? Nose? Another one in my ear? Or ears? (That's the only choices for piercings for me.) I'm too old and too smart to get a tattoo, plus I don't like them, so that's not an option. I really don't want to mess with more than one earring in each ear, either, but I'm not completely ruling it out just yet. That leaves the hair. Hmmm. I have a haircut appointment scheduled for Saturday morning. I guess I'll ask Marka what she thinks when I see her. She's always very honest with me. Any suggestions? I'll consider all ideas!

A funky fun new color is always a thrill. I'm a "go red" kinda gal myself, but it really depends on your coloring. Never done the highlight thing, but I bet it would be good. Hmmm... not big on piercings although I've always wanted to get my belly button done.

Hang tight, sista. You'll come up with the right look!
