Update on the hair

I went and got the hair pixied.

You can see that there are still some highlights left. This tells me that there is no point in trying to grow my hair long. My longest hair is not long and that means in the three months since I got my hair cut, it barely grew an inch. I can’t even imagine how long the annoying in between hair stage would be, if my hair can even grow long at all. After my trip to DC in March I am tempted to turn it platinum blonde like veganhothead suggested. Then when the dark roots start growing in, I’ll put fun colors like purple or blue on top.

I meant to weigh in this morning but got sidetracked. I’ll try to remember to do it tomorrow morning. So far this morning I’ve hand juiced three packs of blood oranges and added lemonade. That topped off a heavy bag of trash which I lugged across the lot to the dumpster.

Right now there are potato cubes roasting on one shelf while there is lasagna baking on the shelf above. I am really liking the fake ricotta and will get it again. I won’t do too much after that and hopefully my back isn’t too argumentative. I did get two long kitchen comfort mats to stand on for food prep yesterday. In fact I wore myself out running lots of errands and such then.

It looks very nice.

Thank you! It feels better

Lookin' great!
Jan. 13th, 2019 09:53 pm (UTC)
Thanks! I’ll play with it sometime and make it spiky

I like the hair, but that's been about how short my hair has been for years. I love it that short. Wow, my hair grows like mad. I have to get it cut every six weeks to keep from looking like a wild person. Wanna trade?

I'm glad you got your mats. Tell me how they worked out. Were they from Home Depot?
Jan. 13th, 2019 09:55 pm (UTC)
I wouldn’t mind trading for a little while to try long hair to pull up in a pretty clip. Those days are long gone. So I’ll play with the color instead

The mats are pretty good. I’m still sore but I did a LOT today. I got them from Lowe’s

I used to have it down to my waist. What a freaking hassle it was. It's human nature, though, to want what you don't have. :D

I think I need some new ones. I had to wash mine and it curled up on the ends. I keep tripping. It'll have to be later, though, like when I go to see my NP next Friday.

Like you, I'm sore, too. I've been trying to move more. Between that and giving up on fake sugar, it's been interesting...

These are wayyyy too thick to put in a washer. I can wipe them down if they get grungy, though.

My sister is probably chuckling to my BIL that my hair looks (and pardon this) "like a dyke" now. That tells you even more about her. She says it to my Mom too when Mom wants more hair cut off.

Why are you giving up fake sugar? If you think you're doing too much of it, you can swap to another kind for a while. There's no evidence that any of them are actually harmful unless you're having so much that even lab rats are going DAYYYUM.

Unless you count the way it sucks calcium out of your bones (https://www.health.harvard.edu/blog/artificial-sweeteners-sugar-free-but-at-what-cost-201207165030). I don't need that, not at my age. I don't use so much of it that it was a heartache. And I'm also trimming refined sugar, alcohol and caffeine. I just decided it was time to start taking care of things, since retirement is looming and I want to be around for it for a while.

I will have to check them out. We could use something new in the kitchen. I just need something cat proof.

I've not heard the calcium one before. Though looking it up, it seems that it may be the carbonation in soda, not the sweetener. Also, the bone density issue only occurred in those who drank a large amount of soda. Less soda in general is a good idea, be it sweetened or artificially sweetened.

Also, the only study I found about the increase in excreting urinary calcium had a whopping total of seven test subjects. I'm surprised a study that limited was accepted for publication.
Jan. 14th, 2019 07:29 pm (UTC)
Either way, I'm still giving it up.
Jan. 13th, 2019 09:57 pm (UTC)
You look ADORABLE !!!!!
Jan. 13th, 2019 10:07 pm (UTC)
Aww! Thank you!

I was musing the other day that since my sister was such an ass, that the next time I go to Ohio, I won’t feel obligated to visit her so we will need to meet!
Jan. 13th, 2019 10:56 pm (UTC)
You look smashing!!! I LOVE it! It's so clean, so fresh.
*omg *lol* I just turned the laptop around and showed my man and he said:

"Oh, shit! That really suits her!"

*LOL* Coming from him that is super high praise ^_^ Normally I show him stuff like that and just get a shrug XD

Mmm...fake ricotta...
Jan. 13th, 2019 11:26 pm (UTC)
*BLUSSHHHHHH* Thank you both! I did have to request for my stylist to cut it even shorter than she did at first. I can still play with it if I want

This is the faux cheese. It was expensive but worth it since it definitely takes care of dairy cravings. It is more dense than regular ricotta so I thinned it out with some oat milk. Though I don’t mind having to do that since i only needed the one small container for a lot of lasagna

Welcome luv!! ^_^

Ohh it looks scrumpdilly!! (I realized after that my comment looked like it was ragging on the fake cheese but I was actually being sincere!)
Jan. 14th, 2019 01:41 am (UTC)
Ah, didn’t think,you were ragging. I took it as being intrigued.

The faux mozzarella I got yesterday had better be damned good. It cost $10 for half a pound. Though a friend of mine said she put it in a calzone and her mom had no clue that it wasn’t the real deal
Jan. 14th, 2019 02:02 am (UTC)
Awesome then 'cause I was/am ^_^

Cheese is hella expensive here -_-

Lookin'good D!Platinum would look great, and so would blue.

If you want fast hair growth, get bangs. I have to have them trimmed before they completely hide my eyes.
Jan. 14th, 2019 01:43 am (UTC)
I just had bangs and I trimmed them myself in early November and they decided to stop growing too.

As long as my hair doesn’t fall out completely, I’ll be fine. I don’t mind super short but I’ve a feeling my bald head woundnt be attractive
Jan. 14th, 2019 02:43 am (UTC)
Three words: Lace. Front. Wig. I'm thinking of getting one myself, for days when my real hair is being useless.

Really? My bangs are hitting my eyelashes after just over a month. I'll have to get a trim before the big trip.
