Clean Shaven

The beard comes off!

Friday night, I got home around 10pm from our last performance of our Last Supper drama. I came in and talked to Anita for about 20-30 minutes and then I said, "Okay, that's it.. I'm going to shave." I went and got the clippers and got started right away. I decided to shave it down to just the goatee first to see what it looked like. It looked like I still had too much hair, is what it looked like!

The variation between the shaved part and the bearded part was so remarkable to me. It was hard to believe how much hair was there.

After I got it down to just the goat, I took a few pics for the heck of it, and then off it came as well. I then got in the shower and took a nice soothing 20 minute shower shaving very slowly and methodically. I had a new razor and brand new can of shaving cream out for it and everything. It took me so long to shave one side of my face that I had to rinse off the lather and reapply when I got to the other side because it had dried up too much.

When it was finished though, it was VERY smooth. It felt very odd and yet refreshing all at the same time. I definitely enjoyed sleeping on my pillow with a shaven face that night.

Saturday I went and got my haircut. Conner got his cut too for the first time (successfully) at a barber shop as well. I'm using the phrase barber shop loosely.. it was a Supercuts. Anyway, Conner did great and his haircut looks really good. It's basically the same haircut he's always had but we let her feather it some so that it would have a softer line around the edges and not be quite so thick. I'll post pictures of the haircut later.

Anyway, here are some pics of me without the beard and with a haircut now. I feel so much lighter and cooler :)
