A day in the life.....
Today's vlog is a video diary of the things that I did at beginning part of my day. I hope that you enjoy it, and feel free to leave questions or comments in the comments area below.
Spring is in the air....supposedly! Well today is the first official calendar day of spring. I have seen Some signs of it. Outside there are green shoots of various bulb plants sprouting from the earth, and I have spotted a robin or two. Which I hear tell, means spring is just around the corner. Another sign of spring for me at least, is the sudden desire to deep clean, shed things unused and reevaluate life. I have found myself becoming more organized. Especially in the fridge and the pantry. But there are more personal and deeper spring transitions occurring in my life. We added Gracie recently which has shifted the balance of things somewhat. Adding a whole new dimension, and some extra work to our family. I have also found myself weeding out time suckers. I am trying to be a bit more conscious in how I am living.

Thanks to minoxydl, I have hair on my head and tho sparse, My lashes have returned. I have told myself to be grateful for what I have. Yet there has been this little part of me that feels less feminine without brows. Less expressive, less myself. Yes, I do draw them on, but that is such a ordeal. I know, I know, First world problems, right. Well, no brows is just another insult to my scarred, breastless body. I made a call a week ago to Chicago microblading, and spoke with a lovely woman named Tahm. She asked what I needed this done, and I shared a bit of my cancer background and told her about being browless. She shared the procedure process with me and then went over cost and care. I told her that with all the medical bills I just didn't think I could swing it now, but said If I were able to…
