New and Improved

First off, you guys are awesome! Thank you so much for asking about John. I am sorry I didn't update earlier. The infection is much better and his arm and finger are almost back to normal; it is the medication that is taking him for a ride. He is allergic to Penicillin and one of the (many) drugs included in this antibiotic is Penicillin. If that isn't bad enough, the concoction, while necessary to kill the spread of the infection, causes flu like symptoms. Poor John has to take a couple of pills every four hours and for the first hour afterwards, he breaks out into sweats, is sick to his stomach and feels like sleeping. He is talking about not taking the remainder of the medication but I think it is just talk. Kind of like threatening the pills to stop making him feel bad or else! He is actually sucking it up for the most part and counting down the days until the meds are gone.





On another note, I am sad to say that my once extremely thick and glossy hair, for whatever reason has decided to thin out on me and look like a haystack. I have naturally curly hair that I have straightened for a couple of years now, only adding to the damage. I decided I wanted to at least look like I still had thick hair and took the plunge tonight and got it all chopped off! This is the shortest my hair has been since I was a pre teenager (is that a word?). I also had three colors added. I am in love with it. It is funky and fun and I needed that. I feel like a new person! It looks much more interesting in person. John is not too keen on it, but he will get used to it. I mean he shaves his head, so how can he really complain. I went to a new stylist for the first time in a few years and am so happy I did!

I'm glad to hear that John is doing better! :)

And I absolutely LOVE your new cut/color! I'm wicked jealous of the curls...I have bone straight hair. And I actually started losing my hair in high school and I keep mine cut short to make it look fuller! :) And it takes less than 5 minutes per day to do it!!

OMG Sheri it is absolutely beautiful. You look so much more vibrant. Tell John he better watch out the men will be knocking down your door. That is the best hair do I have ever seen on you.

*John chasing Sheri around the kitchen table, trying to beat her with the ugly stick cause she is such a hottie and needs to be uglied a bit.

Faith: I installed an electric fence and got new batteries for my Tazer, should be good for now :) Bring on the Fedex Man!

You all are so sweet! Thank you so much for the compliments. For the first time in MANY years, I am in love with my own hair! It takes so little effort in the morning, I am in awe.

Brandy, I can't believe how much fuller my hair looks this short. Should have done this many moons ago...
