Goodness, take a couple days off and this thread explodes!! I can't keep up with you ladies - where do you get all the great energy?
So, going backward a little bit - thank you all for your kind words! I loved having hair, but I really loved being bald (and looked pretty good doing it!) I'm 50, and have two amazing grandchildren (V is almost 8, and L is 3). They keep me young. I'm hating how much weight I gained last year during treatment, and (thanks to menopause) can't seem to get rid of it now.
I want to go shoe-shopping with each and every one of you. Now. Because all this shoe porn is making me hot (or maybe that's just a flash...)
My hair used to be straight and VERY thick...now it's a little curly and super-thin. Still feels like baby hair after a year of growing back in. I never thought I'd miss my thick, messy hair.
Love the idea of the long pants/high heels, Selena! I have short legs and a long torso so I always look weird in pants. For a long time I didn't care, but dammit I had cancer so I deserve to look good, right? I stopped wearing heels a few years ago because they were too much work, but now - I'm back on it!
Dang, back to work. I'll check in later and finish catching up. Happy Monday!
