It is more important to know where you are going, than how long it takes to get there.

Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow...

I have not lost any hair, yet. Today I realized that I haven't shaved my legs in a long time. In the shower this morning, I shaved a small nubble off my legs, and they are smoother than a newborn baby's behind. I don't think they have ever been this smooth. I am guessing that my hair has stopped growing, and that the next phase will be it falling out.

How many times have I mentioned that I am not wearing a wig? I just couldn't imagine putting that on my head in this heat and humidity. I tell everyone that it would be like wearing a fur hat in the summer. I probably am repeating myself because although I have not lost any hair, I feel like I am losing my mind. I forget stuff like orthodontist appointments that are written in bold Sharpee on the refrigerator calendar, even with a phone call the day before. I repeat myself unknowingly, telling the same stories or asking the same questions repeatedly to the same people. (My poor neighbors and family have several months ahead of the same things being repeated over and over by me.)

Stay tuned for the head shaving party...

Whacky thought for the day...
I don't understand the saying, "...slept like a baby." It usually means that someone had a great night of sleep. Babies don't sleep through the night! They barely sleep 3 hours at a time. After a restless night of sleep, then I say that I "slept like a baby."

"Slept like a teenager" is a much better phrase to define a good night of sleep.

  1. I LOVED not having to shave my legs.

    When my hair started falling out, I buzzed it so that it would be less noticeable. I looked like GI Jane. Well, that was actually worse, because I started shedding like a cat - little tiny hairs EVERYWHERE. I didn't want to shave it off because I knew it was dropping out at the root; it needed to come out. So I took duct tape and - yes - defuzzed. Sounds strange, but it didn't hurt at all because the hair was all loose anyway. Within a couple of days I was 90% bald, and then shaved off the rest.

    I actually enjoyed being bald. I know it sounds weird, but it was cool, comfortable, and easy, and everyone said I had a pretty skull! Hairstyling involved sunscreen and a little bronzer to even my skin tone between my scalp and my face. Easy peasy.
