Well, look what we have here...my 100th post. I've been blogging a little over a year now, and boy a lot can happen in a year! Thanks for listening, caring, encouraging and laughing with me. I thought I'd reminisce and link my top 5 favorite posts, I'd love to hear if you have a favorite too!
What I Know For Sure
A New Beginning
(Yes, I know that was 4, be patient) So just because it's my 100th post, and I'm feeling particularly brave, I'm going to give you a special number five, a never before seen post that has been lingering in my drafts for a year and I just couldn't bare to delete it. This isn't for weak of stomach...
Did I just blog that out loud?
This is certainly the last thing I needed. But then again, who ever needs...LICE. Yes, I said it, I'm admitting it, and I'm blogging it. A bugger of a four letter word if there ever was. I really have to vent about this one because I'm about to snap! AND my friends this is the second time within a month that my child has caught this nasty time consuming parasite. As I blog, we are lice free, no worries; but it did have our plans turned upside down for weeks. Up to this point in my lifetime, I have been a lice virgin. The endless washing, the endless bagging, the endless cleaning, the endless combing. I think I pulled more hair out of my daughter's head than lice. And throw in the tinge of OCD I may or may not have to make it all transition oh so nicely. We were never terribly infested, I caught it early both times, before anything hatched...I think...however, within our circle of playpals one little bugger lived on to reinfest the masses. And yes, an intervention did have to happen to the re-infestor!
Seriously. On top of moving, selling my possessions and separating from husband, my children contracted lice!!!! They were popping around from home to home visiting lots of families at the time. The only thing I could do was just laugh about it because it thoroughly disgusted me. I may even have been heard saying at the time, this, "well, I lose my house, car and husband, left virtually penniless, now the kids get lice; we have come full-circle white trash."
Well now...is that more information than you ever wanted to know about me or what? Just re-reading that makes my scalp itch. Scratch, scratch. The nastiest thing to come along in this household EVER! And by the way if anyone has any questions about lice or the removal thereof, I'd be happy to oblige as I now consider myself somewhat of an expert. It is really not as easy to detect as I had thought. I also learned that lice prefer clean heads over dirty, now I don't know if that hubbabaloo was just written in the packaging to relieve some of my "how, How, HOW?" craziness. However, on a positive note, I think my scalp has finally recovered from the pesticide chemical peel treatments you have to use to kill those buggers! And a woot, woot for back-to-school. Wishing lice free blessings to all!
