This one is odd. I saw it as graffiti on the side of a train car in Juneau, Alaska. What is means, I don't know, but I liked it enough to quickly write it down to keep.

And then there is the one in the title of this post. Lon and I were driving past Seibke Hoyt Jewelers and their big sign by the street had this baby up. "KEEP CALM - STAY SPARKLY". What does it mean? I dunno. But I thought it was kinda funny.
I took a big leap this morning and washed my hair. It has been a week (aw, come on, everybody, don't go "ewwwwing" on me), but frankly I have been afraid to. In church Sunday, a friend, Donna T., told me that a chemo patient she knew, went to wash her hair one day and the whole shebang came sliding off! Well, the good news is that 90%+ is still there. I noticed several individual strands falling but nothing too major yet. As Jenna puts it, I don't have to go "G-I Janene" quite yet. I did realize that I couldn't put on the black sweatshirt that I wanted, because with my light hair falling, by the end of the day, it would look like a small chinchilla was riding on my back between my shoulder blades.
Another FYI fact that I wanted to share: Jenna had told me that putting Vaseline on your eyelashes could make them healthier and stronger. Well, every night, I have put some on both my eyelashes and eyebrows, and they seem to be holding their own. So try it, if you want thicker lashes and brows.
I want to wish everyone a HAPPY NEW YEAR, and leave you with this important message:
KEEP CALM - STAY SPARKLY!!!
