I think I've created a monster! A texting monster...that is.
DS has been begging for texting on his phone. He has been going off on trips with school, church and now the National Student Leadership Conference in Washington, DC. They use text to communicate when they are out in large groups and so last weekend we changed our phone plan to include texting. However....I think the only one he has been texting is ME! Ok, I don't have a qwerty keyboard on my phone, which means I have to punch a multitude of letter combinations to send out a text. *sigh* I can't wait for my new phone!! We just dropped DS off at the American University for this conference and I kid you not, in the last hour I've gotten 16 texts!!!!!!!! I finally told him to stop texting, I was going to take a nap.
I headed for my room, and before I knew it I was joined by a snoring husband and a loudly purring cat. My phone has quit buzzing, but now my room is. Is there no rest for the weary in this house? I think not!! LOL
So here I am...and I decided to try on my wig for the first time since I brought it home. I actually wore it to an appointment this morning, then down to drop DS off at the conference. We stopped at a Subway for lunch and ran into someone who I know that doesn't know I have cancer. She never even batted an eye when she saw me. It was comforting to know that she didn't stop or do a double take, so must be my hair looks like a little bit longer version of what it used to be. I feel much better now!!
It is a mild day, considerin...though very high humidity. I'm pleased to say the wig is not too hot, thank heavens! I think I can wear it during the summer, though not too long at a stretch. It is comfortable for a while, but does seem to get tighter as the day wears on. Wimpy aren't I? Actually, to tell the truth, my scalp still aches a little. It's funny how sensitive your skin becomes during chemo. But, I managed to get a quick picture of it this morning. Let me know what you think.
I'll be heading into Baltimore Wednesday for a proper wig fitting, and a little trim to make it look more like my hair. DH and DS seem to think it looks good on me but I value a lady's opinion. You can be as honest as you like. I still have to do a double take when I walk by a mirror. LOL
Hopefully DS will be too busy in the next few days to text, and then I'll have a proper qwerty keyboard for texting then. I'll let you know how that goes! Till then, keep smiling! *Hugs*
