New #1 and #2

The old #1: Grow my hair down to the middle of my back. As I mentioned in my last post, this feels like it will be impossible for me to do, as I am on the verge of chopping it all off and starting over again.

The new #1: Stain our bed and picture frames.

The old #2: Deep clean our bedroom. I did do a thorough deep clean. I just didn't get any pictures right away and the spic-and-span-ness has faded.

The new #2: Read a book. I haven't read a whole book (that's not a children's book) in quite a while. I know I have Read through my Bible on here, but this is different. :) I'll tell you what book I end up reading when I finish it.

Next Thing #1= IMPOSSIBLE

Growing my hair down to the middle of my back has been one of my next 5 things since I started this blog. At this point my hair is down to my shoulders (when it is wet).

One thing that I didn't know about breastfeeding is that when you wean your child it can cause your hair to fall out, again. When Haven was about four months old, right around the time we came to Thailand, my hair started falling out because of the postpartum hormones. This last December she stopped breastfeeding, and since then my hair has become SO thin!

After Hope was born and my hair fell out, I went and had it chopped really short. In like manner, once we came to Thailand and moved to Chiang Mai, I chopped my hair again. That was right before I started this blog. So, now that I have the thinnest hair ever (again), I feel like chopping it all off. Or shaving my head. 

At this point, I don't know how much longer I can stand it. I am removing this as my #1 of my Next 5 Things and putting something a little easier to accomplish.
