I was talking with Jenna last night about new hair-dos for me and we may have come upon a permanent (or semi-permanent) solution to my hair loss. Magic markers!
Why not? She suggested that we could do the wavy swirls on the sides like the girls in the 'hood do. Just think, I can make any kind of pattern I want in any color I want. I've never been a redhead. I wonder if Crayola Crayon Magic Markers come in a natural looking red - not the fire engine red. that might be a bit showy. A nice smooth punky look would be in Smurf Blue. I've seen markers come in a "turd" brown color that could be used for general purpose days. And if I want to look like I'm wearing my natural color, I could combine Sunflower Yellow with some liquid White-Out for that "streaked" look.
I may just start a new fad.
The other day I posted a silly comment about one of my sister having some health problem, but then deleted it because it was a little graphic. I talked to sister Sa . . . uh, I mean one of my sisters that I will not name, and found out that she had been to the doctor and has several major health issues. No wonder she was feeling horrible. On top of most of the serious stuff, she has kidney stones. OUCH!!
Tomorrow is the day that our dad will be entering a wonderful care center. None of us know just exactly how things will roll, but PLEASE . . . everyone - think good thoughts for us. Prayers . . . hope for good ju-ju, . . . even crossing of fingers might help. We are gonna need every bit of good luck we can muster up.
A few chemo after-effects have been occurring. The most annoying one is the dizziness. The forgetfulness is coming in second place. Sis-in-law Jill and I were out buying stuff for Dad the other day, and it must have looked like she was with a drunk. I was a little unstable, but then I was suddenly exhausted, so we called it a day. I'm sure she was pooped, too, since she gets up a 3:30 AM for work, and had already had worked a full day.
Everyone in the family has pitched in and we have accomplished so much getting stuff around for Dad's "new adventure". Everyone had some kind of a job and it has worked out pretty smoothly. It may be that we will have the essentials in his room by tomorrow, and then can complete stock him up with the rest of the stuff that will be needed, when he gets there. It's a little tricky, since we want to take his nice dresser for him, and we certainly can't do that ahead of time.
So. Everybody ready? CROSS THOSE FINGERS!
And once again, DEAR GOD, HELP. WOW. THANKS!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
