Financial Fitness: An Update

I'm happy to report that we are ahead of schedule with our debt payoff plan. Pending any major catastrophes, we will be consumer debt-free by April, exceeding our goal to have all unsecured debt paid off by May of 2012!

Here are is little chart to visualize the progress that we've made:

 If you're interested to see how we did it, reference blog posts one, two, three, and four.

Note: This is a series on the blog to share our path to financial fitness. We are no experts in personal finance. We are, however, on our way to becoming smart{er} consumers.

In desperate need of a change

So last weekend in an attempt to change my hair back to blonde, I had what will forever be referred to as "haircastrophy of 2012". My hair did not agree with the attempts to remove the copper tones. Instead, it decided to break off on the ends, catapulting into a "I'm going bald" panic. Well, I'm not bald - but I am sporting some very stringy strands {which I treat with a Fekkai Rx deep conditioner every evening slapping on my trusty shower cap while I sleep}.

So now I'm left with the question: Where do I go from here? I've been attempting to "grow" out my hair for the past few years. I've enjoyed having longer locks. I'm now wondering if I should start from scratch with a shorter do and start all over again. I've always enjoyed changing hairstyles, and throughout my high school and college years experimented with different lengths, tones, and textures.

This is what I'm considering {perhaps with a little more length in back} ...


Usually, I get quite impulsive about my hair. This time, I want to make sure it's what I want - because it will inevitably take me years to grow it out again. Decisions, decisions ...
