Locks of Love
Greetings, you fabulous Poopies! I hope everything in your lives is going well and that 2012 has been smooth sailing for you all. “Smooth” isn’t exactly the word I would use to describe life over here in PoopieWorld. “Crazed” or “stressed” or “nuts” even would be more accurate descriptions for us at the moment. The house goes up next week and we’ve been in what feels like never-ending packing, purging, de-cluttering, fix-it, clean it and paint it mode. Casa Poopie is so damn perfect now I wish we could stay put forever. It’s definitely unfair that someone else will be the beneficiaries of all our hard work and money. Oh well, such is the lovely market and economy we’re just trying to survive in these days. And really all of this is truly smooth sailing compared to what many others are dealing with. A good friend reminded me yesterday, PoopieDaddy has a good job we all have our health and each other. Nothing is more important. Nothing.
And this of course brings me to today’s brief blog. As you can see from the photo above, ole Poops here finally chopped off the locks! It is definitely weird to see such a big part of your physical self sitting on a table detached from your head. I had about a 10-second cringe after the scissors sliced threw my long ponytail and then I was over it. All it took for me to have this perspective was to think about the person out there who will have a wig sewn from my hair. I can’t even imagine how awful and daunting it would be to face a serious illness, but then on top of all the physical and emotional pain you add hair loss as one of the unfortunate symptoms. If my locks can make someone’s life, especially a child’s, just slightly better by providing them with real, healthy hair then it’s the very least I can give back to show how grateful I am for my own good health and the health of those whom I love. It’s such a tiny thing. Now that it’s chopped, I wish I had donated my hair every year that I’ve had it long enough to do it! And just maybe now I will.
I’ve got a lot of interesting topics to share with you all this year. I wish I could post them now, but I want to wait for PoopieMommy’s makeover. So, please bear with me the rest of the month. Starting this weekend, the blog will be going under construction. I tried to time PoopieMommy’s overhaul with the house sale since I knew life was about to get ka-razy around here and finding time to blog everyday would get trickier. I’ll try to leave you with one last MoMtra tomorrow before I bid you leave temporarily. It’s still uncertain whether or not the URL will remain the same, as we’re potentially switching to WordPress. Of course if there are major changes to how you find PoopieMommy on the web or how you receive it via email I will keep you updated. I’m hoping the redesign won’t take too long! I will miss all my Poopies! You guys are the best. I’ll leave ya with “after” pic from today’s Locks of Love cut. Here’s the new and improved PoopieMommy after the 10 inches were chopped. One day I’ll manage to put on some make-up during daylight hours and perhaps start waxing the amazon eyebrows again!!! : ) For better or worse, this is PoopieMommy. xxoo.
