I’m quite pleased to be able to say that I found a wig.  I was sitting in my office yesterday afternoon, and it occurred to me that I needed to get up and go to the wig shop.  I had been putting it off, and it was really stressing me out.  So I went to The Wig Shoppe in Des Peres.  The ladies there were super helpful, and I found something really cute.  It’s a bob with blunt cut bangs.  It’s pretty flattering, I think.  They didn’t have it in my color, so I had to order it, but I put a rush on it because well…OMFG my hair is going to start falling out next week.  I should get the wig in a few days. Yay.

Speaking of hair, Eason asked if we could have a “Shave Jenn’s Head” party at the office.  He would bring in his clippers and buzz away.  Then he would do the boys, who are going bald with me.  (Eason is already bald by choice.) I’m thinking it might be a good idea.  The alternative is doing it by myself, at home, and probably crying about it.  The boys will make me laugh, and Kristie will be there.  I think I’m leaning that way. Plus, I’m pretty sure there will be pot brownies.  That’s a good enough reason right there.

Other cancery things that make me happy:

  • I have been assigned a breast cancer mentor, and she’s great.  I really like her based off of our email exchanges.  We are meeting for lunch next week.  Having someone around my age to discuss this stuff with has been great.
  • This wouldn’t normally be considered a cancer thing, but it is to me.  I have been complaining about how difficult it is to find cutesy lingerie when you have expanders, because you cannot wear a bra with an underwire.  Well VS just came out with a super cute line of bralettes.  I got the email yesterday and I’m super excited.  

I have a slight cold, so I am back to sitting at home.  It’s okay though, because it’s Friday, and I’m in a really good mood.  I have Jax this weekend, and I have fun stuff planned for us.  Also, Sunday is my first knitting class.  Plus, shopping!  I need bralettes and new jeans.  My jeans are so big now. I look ridiculous. 

Sorry this post is so cancer-iffic, but this is my life now.
