Getting Older

Sophie is feeling so much better today. She's eating and it doesn't seem to be upsetting her stomach, so that is very good. I have changed where we walk so she won't be able to get to as much trash. Just a few moments ago I looked down at Sophie and noticed how much white hair she is getting. That makes me so sad. In the last couple of months she has really started to show her age and is not as active. Sophie is 10 and until just a few months ago she looked like a puppy.

Sophie is not the only one getting older. For the first time someone noticed all the gray hairs I have. The first time I noticed a gray hair was when I was 22 and it was the day I was getting married, which looking back I think that's hysterical. Since then I have only had a couple gray hairs, but the last year I have gotten more and more. I guess now I need to decide if I am going to color my hair or let it go natural.

Speaking of hair....after work I went and got my haircut. Because my hair is so thick, when it gets long I can't do anything with it and it just lays there. I had 2 inches cut off and it is really short. As I watched her cut my hair she just kept cutting and cutting. I had a moment of panic when I realized how much 2 inches really is, but now that I am home I think I am liking it. My head feels so much lighter and I feel like my hair has that bounce back. I am going into work for part of the day tomorrow, so I will have someone take a picture.

I have had some comments asking about this secret I have. Here is another hint.
