A girl only needs a couple inches to be happy

I was dreading today, the day I chopped off my hair..all 21 inches of it. The funny thing is, I was growing it so long to donate to locks of love...little did I know that I was being drafted into that unwitting army at the same time was I volunteering for the other side. I decided to make a partial wig for myself since I had so much hair. It's ridiculously expensive, but I know it'll feel like home, or some place familiar when I'm walking alone in baldland. Until I get it, I have my fluorescent pink Cleopatra wig and my "I'm trying to look like I don't have cancer and am really normal like you" wig. It may only stay in my head for another week or so, but the couple inches they so generously left behind are much appreciated. After the carnage was cleared away and Charly had a chance to see me, styled and all, she said "you look even more like mommy". I love that child. Maddy also was fine with it, she just looked up at me and said "they take your hair off mommy?" followed by a big hug. I think she's getting used to "them" taking parts of mommy off. Hopefully we'll get a little reprieve!


  1. What a great hair style on you!!!! You look so beautiful! Speaking of "eyes" yours really show up now and they are so pretty. Love your subject title today ha ha :) Our love B & B

  2. OMG I love your hair!! all of them.. the real stuff, the pink stuff, and the sexy "who has cancer?" stuff!! all super cute. and thanks for giving me something to do on a Friday morning in lab ;)


  3. O God! Refresh and gladden my spirit. Purify my heart. Illumine my powers. I lay all my affairs in Thy hand. Thou art my Guide and my Refuge. I will no longer be sorrowful and grieved; I will be a happy and joyful being. O God! I will no longer be full of anxiety, nor will I let trouble harass me. I will not dwell on the unpleasant things of life.

    O God! Thou art more friend to me than I am to myself. I dedicate myself to Thee, O Lord.
