Dear Hands,

Dear Hands,

I finally have some eyelashes growing in long enough that they don’t poke & itch. Please leave them there. I like eyelashes…on my face.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter Everyone!

We weren’t able to be with family this year, so it was a very low key holiday for us.   A little to much for my taste.  I had more time on my hands than is good for a person who uses said hands to pull hair.  I tried to keep my head covered though and did pretty well, I think.  I did quite a bit of baking yesterday which kept me busy.  Today I was getting fidgety & wanted something Easter-y to do so I decorated the cookies I’d made.  The bunny shapes didn’t turn out so great, so we ended up with Easter Kitty instead.  I wonder what our cat thinks of that!

I hope you all made it through the holiday okay, especially if you were lucky enough to have a long weekend (many schools around here had Good Friday off).  I hope that for those of you who struggle with family get togethers, you had positive experiences.

I’m working on being gentle with myself and just trying to give myself some grace.  I always feel like I should be doing something different than I am.  I’m trying to be okay with the fact that while I should get priority items knocked of my to do list, there are a lot of things that just don’t matter.  Relaxing without stress or a guilty conscious is more important than what others think.  Not to mention, most people don’t look far enough past the end of their nose to know what I’m doing or not doing anyway!!

PS  If anyone wants to make those gluten free sugar cookies, they are fantastic.  Gluten Free Gobsmacked has the perfect recipe.  I like them better than any other sugar cookie I’ve ever tried, gluten full or free.

Wow! 10,000

I’ve surpassed the 10,o00 hit mark on this blog.  That’s hard to believe!  More so when I consider I have slacked completely on posting.

I’ve had a really busy and stressful month.  It is definitely showing via my head & eye lashes. I really have very few top lashes left, which makes me quite sad.  My scalp just keeps getting thinner & thinner.  I’m not even sure the long bandana style scarves are really useful anymore. They certainly don’t feel professional or stylish.  Part of me feels like I should return to the wigs, but it would be just in time to be HOT all summer long.  Yuck.

I have an important work meeting this week & I’m struggling with whether to go comfortable in my scarf & risk looking slightly less professional, or to take a wig along that day just to wear for the meeting.  Somehow that feels more fake than the scarf.  I guess I do have one head covering that looks a little more stylish & coordinated with my outfits than if I just wore my regular black one.  Maybe I’ll do that.  I don’t know.  Really, I wish I could just skip the meeting and talk to them on the phone to save us all a lot of time (and gas money!)

I have no focus right now.  My hair is not a priority, which is why I’m not writing.  I hope you’ll bear with me.
