Alive and well -- with short hair

Thanks to everyone for sharing their comments about bad haircuts. I guess it has happened to just about everyone at some point.  

This haircut was so bad: I went to the gal who colors my hair the next day.  Her reaction, when asked if she could fix it, was that it was an awful haircut and she tried to even it up.  Still pretty awful.

I then went to my daughter's hairdresser for basically a redo.  The end result is that the cut is now bearable.  She did a great job with what she had.  My hair is pretty short now but the curls don't look half bad!  She textured it, which took out all the weight.  I've never had that done, after so many haircuts by curly-hair specialists... And I think it's the way to go.

So, hair problem sort of fixed.

Now, you ask, where have I been? No, not crying over my hair.
My daughter was without a sitter for 3 weeks between the old one and the new one's start date.  In for the rescue came Nana.  I have been watching the two darlings for the past 3-1/2 weeks... It's been fabulous, but it meant that I was doing nothing else.

I'm now back.  I will post some pictures in the next day, although Friday is Nana Day so I'm back to SF again tomorrow night.

I hope everyone is doing well and getting lots of sewing done.
Happy Valentines Day, by the way.

Love to you all,


  1. Good to know you were able to get some kind of repair job done on your hair. : )
    Have you done any sewing today?

  2. Glad to hear from you ... was a little "concerned" ... glad the hair is somewhat resolved. It will grow out ... and I, too, have curly hair that they sort of take the weight out of which allows it to behave the way it's supposed to. Enjoy the grands! Linda

  3. So now can we see your new and improved haircut?

    I am green with envy! All that time with the grandkids.......lucky Nana!

    I'm busy packing, trying to sell my house, shoveling snow. Sewing...not so much.
    5 weeks from today and I'll be in my new home :0)

    Oh happy day

  4. I'd really like to see the new haircut too!

  5. Sorry about your hair fiasco!! Last time I went, I asked for an inch trim...and 3 inches later, I was out the door!! will grow back! Happy Valentines day!

  6. Not to make light of your bad haircut, but my dad used to say that the difference between a bad hair cut and one that's just right is 4 weeks. He was philosophical that way. We live in Washington state and when we'd miss the ferry boat going someplace, he'd say "well, we're first in line for the next one."

  7. Your method of describing all in this piece of writing
    is truly pleasant, every one be able to effortlessly know it, Thanks a lot.

    Here is my blog ... very nice web site

  8. I want to see the new hair do too. Glad you got it "fixed". It might have been hard to wear a hat until it grew out. (I say that because I hate wearing hats).
    Lucky you all that time with the adorable grands. Enjoy.

  54. 3 a long time аgo I cοntracted ѕtrep.
    І reсeіvеd antibiotіcs but ѕtoρρeԁ them
    ѕimρly bеcauѕe it caused ѕevere diаrrhea.

    I didn't consider something else and my strep went away or so I imagined. A pair months later on I extracted a wisdom tooth. Did not receive any antibiotics and my jaw locked up. The whole correct facet of my face was swollen for month. I was rushed towards the ER cause they considered I'd an infectiοn.
    On the οther hand following, сt
    ѕcans and ΜRI, they coulԁ finԁ abѕolutely nothіng.
    I then dеvelοped choгeа fоllοωеd by intense epіѕodе of dystоρiа of the jaω.
    Aftеr all оf thіs strep begun сoming on a monthly basis.
    The strep spread tо my еyeѕ and aftеr
    that I deѵelοpеd the woгѕе sіtuation of eгythеmа nοdosum mу mеdісal ԁοctοrs eхpeгіenced
    evеr οbserѵed. I could not walκ fοr
    abοut twο months. I ѕtarted having superior fоlloωing a althоugh but then stгep began comіng
    еaсh othеr thirty daу periоd afteг which
    you cаn eaсh anԁ eѵеry month аfter whіch twice pеr month anԁ also expeгiеnсeԁ baԁ
    reаctive аrthritіs. Τhеn it sρreаd to your heаd of mу humerus
    bone. Foг 6 monthѕ I coulԁ not move my pгοpeг
    aгm. It felt liκe іt ωas nοt part of mу bodу.
    I'd surgery they usually found that the entire head of humerus was filled with pus and there was no bone. All that was left was a shell. They cleaned it out but could not definitively say that it was strep considering the fact that lab results came up empty. Since the surgery, I'νе expеriеnceԁ stгeр
    everу ѕingle month. I've been on very long term antibiotics for 6 months in hopes that it would kill the strep. I have to check my heart and kidneys the many time cause strep generally affects these areas. The weird detail is that i even get the strep although over the antibiotics but my docs say that possibly I just need to acquire it for prolonged adequate to see improvements. I normally wonder if I had taken the complete course of antibiotics that initial time if I might be exactly where I'm right nоw.
    I аm сonfuѕed aѕ to how to ԁеal wіth strep frоm the miԁѕt of itѕ intensе attaсk on mу body.
    If anyone hаs any adѵіce оn this іt
    could ωеll be grеatly аppгeсiated.
