Hair Update

Becky warned me it would happen, but I completely didn't believe her. Monday, however, as I was on the elevator at the hospital, two separate ladies joined me and completely raved about how fantastic my haircut was. How brave I was to cut it so short and they wished they had the face for it like I do. I decided not to embarrass them by telling them that actually I have cancer and it's just now growing back. That it's complete puppy fluff and I cannot even comb it because it just does whatever it wants to do. Now I expected my friends and family to like it, mostly because they love me and partially because I think I probably look a little healthier with some hair on my head (fluff or not). But random strangers?

It's been 2 weeks now since I stopped wearing scarves, and I have gotten WAY more stares with this little bit of hair than I ever did when I was wearing scarves and I have to say that it's a little disconcerting and makes me more than a bit self-conscious, but whatever.


And proof that I'm feeling better, I've been a scrapping fool in the last 12 hours.
