itchy progress

As predicted, several days out from my 2nd chemo treatment I have begun the losing of hair. Given the short length and color of my hair, I keep looking down and thinking that my departed cat Lulu has come shed on me. (I buzzed it all three weeks ago, but my hair grows *fast*. I buzzed it again just now and it will be interesting to see how often I need to keep doing that.) I am somewhat hoping I will be one of the people whose hair comes back a different texture, since the factory-installed hair texture is pretty useless.

I kinda hope it works on my PCOS-generated mustache, but it apparently isn't consistent on whether it takes out facial hair as well.

R is safely arrived in Santa Fe, and has begun adjusting to the altitude and unpacking. The dog is disconsolate; once we get to Phase 2 of the stay at home order in King County, I am hoping he can go back to having a day at doggie day care regularly because it made him a happier doggo to get that kind of social time.

I have a five pound bag of cinnamon bears; it remains to be seen if I have the strength of will to not eat all five pounds in the next three days. This entry was originally posted at Please comment there using OpenID.
