Why I Cut My Man’s Hair And Other Random Things

I’ve neglected my blog. I’ve been away and if I could I would give you a long detailed excuse for my absence, but that would require lots of typing. And typing requires the use of my hands, and my hands hurt. So quickly I will say first, I was without the internet, due to us cutting the wire while installing our sprinkler system. But on top of that I’ve been battling lots of crazy aches and pains the last few months. Bottom line is my hypothyroid decided to work even less, causing my meds to become ineffective. On top of that my B-12 dropped to dangerously low levels causing a whole other set of issues, most significant is my hands going numb, and crazy pain when I try to use them for more then a few minutes at a time. This includes holding the phone. I’m not sure what a gal like me is to do when she can’t type and she can’t use the phone!

Anyway, I have real cool interviews, book reviews, and many Conflicted Chef posts piling up in my head. I’m thinking of hiring my oldest daughter to type for me so I can catch up. Well, I will do that as soon as she gets back from Hawaii in a couple of weeks. Yes, the little stinker is in Hawaii with her grandparents for her 12 year old trip and I’m hopelessly lost without her!

So I apologize for my neglect and I hope to be back on track soon. And I’d like to leave you with a marriage tip, haven’t had one of those in awhile.

Marriage Tip 267- Cut Your Husband’s Hair- When WB asked me to start cutting his hair soon after we were married I was terrified. I had no experience in such things. But then I remembered that scene in Her Alibi with Tom Selleck and Paulina Porizkova.

And I thought, this could be fun! So spice up your marriage a little and cut your husbands hair. Believe me, he’ll overlook your lack of talent in the hair styling department and you may find yourself cutting his hair for years to come.

I tried it once and my attempt was so inept... uh, let's just say I haven't braved it again, although he was very nice about it! It wouldn't be hard now, since he wears it buzzed - I'd just need a good razor. But now I'm at the point of, it would just be one more thing to add to my crammed schedule, so as long as he's fine with going to the barber, it's fine with me!

As for you, take it easy until you get your pains worked out! Perhaps dictation software would help? I've heard Dragon Naturally Speaking is a godsend for authors with RA or other pain issues. If we don't see much of you, we understand!

We've missed you Kara!
My husband shaves what's left of his hair, but sometimes he asks for help cleaning up the back :)
Here's to you having a speedy recovery!

Oh my gosh...I tried to cut Chris' hair once and it was awful!!! He wanted me to try again, but I never would! I don't cut the kids' hair either after I made Nathan's ear bleed when he was little...we all go to professionals!

Hope you're feeling better!!
