Thanks for your sweet responses to me in regards to my hair. Yesterday was a low dip in the rollercoaster journey. Today is a new day. I was in the pit, God gave me a hand. I was in the trenches, yet a ladder is there to help me step by step. I was in the belly of a whale, yet there was a great regurgitation. I am broken, not crushed.
I think I will go ahead and cut my hair to a shorter length next Wednesday. I have always liked the stacked look. Siteman cancer resource room suggested that I should lessen the weight of my hair shaft. After a while I will probably cut it even shorter. There was a little hesitation in cutting it twice. First of all I was being frugal. I don't want to spend money on a hair cut twice in the next 2 months. Think of it as being a wise steward of our money. I normally only go every 6 months if that. The other hesitation was wondering if it would still be stylish to wear the wide headbands with shorter hair. Bandanas and hats would probably be a better choice. Some have suggested I also get it cut now so the family can adjust as well as me for the lack of hair. My hair today is coming out easily. I like to refer my loss of hair as a bundle of tumble weed. The dictionary describes hair as a slender threadlike outgrowth. I would love my body shape to be described in that manner as well. Just look under Kate for that description. ha ha ha. I will keep some hair for my scrapbook for memories.
As for the scrapbook please be sure to send your pictures to Michelle Roloff. You can email her by clicking on her name to the right of the post. She will then give you her snail mail address to send the picture her way.
Carter & Cole had their first basketball game today at 11. It is fun to have them on the same team. I have always loved basketball. Playing and coaching were great. It is a delight to watch my own boys take up this sport. Saturdays will be a highlight for the next 7+ weeks.
