Hair Today, Gone Tomorow....


I was in the tub, plucking my eyebrows (I find this is the best time to do this personally) and there it was. A freaking BLACK hair....growing right there under my chinny chin-chin. Now, it was a good 3/4" long. No one told me. I have been on the look-out ever since I found my last stray hair, (which, I might as well admit now, was on my BOOB!

I inspect my body daily for stray hairs! So, tell me how this hair got past me?!!

And, honestly, what the hell is it about age and hair? I use to make fun of my mom and sister for plucking at themselves all the time. Is this my payback? Because I never made fun of them for getting them, just that they were always looking for them. I do mine in private.

I told WG that I found it.

He said it was no big deal and he still thinks I am beautiful. (see why I love this man?)

I dunno what y'all know about body hair....but I do know my mom is in her 50's, and she told me that your pubic hair turns gray too.

Ugh, can you imagine? I told WG he will have to shave it off for me, cus I can't stand the thought of it. (And I also can't stand the thought of SHAVING!)

I watched Dr. Oz on Oprah again. Talking about diet, exercise, and how important your blood vessels and heart are in regards to aging. He said the reason we get wrinkles is directly linked to our blood vessels. If they aren't healthy the skin wont be healthy, and it will crack.
Also, how well you exercise shows how healthy your heart is. And, that it doesn't pay to kill yourself working out, he said 1 hour a week is all you need. He did go on to say, that it takes up to 1/2 hr to reach your target heart rate depending on the person, and he means 1 hour of your heart rate being at target.

My new goal in life? Keeping my blood vessels healthy. It will also benefit my heart which obviously in my family, is a good thing! (and I wont get wrinkles!)

I like to be on the up and coming for new products. I saw an ad in my Oprah magazine, for this lotion, that is to cure 'chicken skin'. What's that? SOMETHING I GOT! I have lived my whole life with these red bumps on my arms that look really stupid. I've hated them, dry skin the Dr. says. I've tried every lotion available in the stores. I lube up twice a day with something or other. Ive tried....Everything. I've even tried the stuff I use for my concrete feet (this is a patented term) on my arms. Well, now I know what it's called. Keratosis Pilaris. And, I am getting some lotion for it. It's 36 bucks for a small tube, but you know what? Happiness has no price! I would be so thrilled to have normal looking skin! I mean, live your life with something and have no idea what it is......I've looked for a term for years! My sister has it too. We are blessed with chicken skin!!!!!

Today's Question:

What was the most disgusting thing youve ever had to do?

Being the good mother that I am, I went 'fishing' for something my dog ate. I couldn't get it and she had to go to the hospital for them to get it out, but the fact is, I tried! LOL!

You know, it's one thing to tell people about your life and body, but do you have to tell everyone about my problems too?? LOL :-) A few people know who you and I are and they read this from time to time so, my secrets are slowly coming out of the closet.
The only disgusting things I can think of have to do with pets also. They are my kids and you have to clean up after them, or clean them up.

Funny you should ask this question today because I just cleaned up vomit! Noah ate 2 1/2 hotdogs at his preschool Halloween party! Not pretty!
