Post #2 for the Day - A Slight Change

Ever noticed how, in the midst of a life-changing event (i.e. a break up), girls always want to take their stress out on their hair?

Yeah, I'm no different.

So I went and got a fancy new haircut.

And bangs.

I had enough sense to not drastically chop it all off - at least today.

Can't decide if I am yet sold on this concept, but at least it's taking my mind off the pins and needles feeling in my abdomen.

It looks supercute! I think your coping strategy needs to be treating yourself to pedis or manis or whatever makes you feel good until the grapefruit is gone :-)

Benson said...

Very nice and kinda sassy.

Pins and needles huh?
Are you in stitches?

(sorry, I couldn't resist)

Hair looks great - nothing like having a haircut...

You know Megan, I can totally understand why you would be depressed... and not only because of the pain, because you know you will get over that.

You just spent the last two years of your life working towards one goal... becoming an ironman. You did that, and damn woman, you should be PROUD. You are entitled to months and months of secret smiles when you remember you are an ironman, accepting congratulations and admiration when "normal folk" tell you how wonderful you are that you have completed ironman... etc... and instead, you are "in pain woman that gave up a kidney"...

I totally get why you would be pissed, feeling a bit cheated of your glory time... you earned it baby, and now you don't really get to enjoy it.

You did such a selfless and courageous thing, and as you said, you did the right thing... but it is OK to acknowledge that you are a little mad (or a lot) that you had to give up your post-Ironman glow, and your post-Ironman body. I know I would be pissed!

Hang in there sunshine!

Just remember that you may have introduced the concept of organ donation to a lot of people. We'll never know how many people you've done that for -- we'll never know how many people you've influenced... But there is no doubt that there are many out there...and for that you are a hero.

Every story causes people to talk...and the more people talk about it, the more lives are saved. You did a great thing...

Oh, and your hair looks really nice. I would have noticed if you wouldn't have brought it up.

LOVE the new haircut, Meg. I've always thought good hair was essential to self-worth. ;)

Plus, it's a great way to start your weekend--in fact, I'm doing the same tonight.

I have a comment on that last post; I will email it to you when I get a chance. Oh, and I totally wish I had your arms. Sigh.

(Even though I know I still win.)

Eric said...

Cindy Jo said...

You look GREAT Megan!!! I'm catching up on your blog and can't believe how well you've been handling things - seriously. I know it may not feel that way, but you really are. And you are entitled to all of your feelings - good AND bad.

Danni said...

LOVE the hair!
Rock on girl!

Prin said...

I hope you're ok today. :)

KrissyGo! said...

Dude. Hair = SuperCute.

Like, Super. Cute.


And you're right...there will be a time when this is all a memory -- sans pain and discomfort.

btw: you're _always_ IronMeg no matter what happens next.

my hair has too much body for bangs...I forget that about every too years and cut them anyway.
Hope you have a good weekend!
take care
