There's a brand new lice removal joint in town!

Posted on 2016.05.15 at 21:28
Parts of this week were full of trials!

Like Monday:
I planned on working from home but was an idiot, so I had to go in. Then at 3:00 I drove from work to  Hawaii's school, daycare, home, piano, forgot the sack dinner, back to daycare, back to piano, ok now really to t-ball, back to piano, and then home around 6:00. Then we found lice in Hawaii's hair. I had a big anxiety attack about the lice.

But other days were like Tuesday:
We went to the new nit-combing place in town. Pokey and I got lice-checked (both negative).  Hawaii got a thorough comb-out. It took two hours. They went strand by strand. There were snacks and ipads and we paid $320. It was worth every penny.


I cut my hair off on Thursday:

Looks pretty good for spending the day puking and having digestive failure! (today was rough.) "It doesn't look like a Mom cut!" one friend said unconvincingly, thereby planting the idea in my head.

Here are the pictures I pinned to my Pinterest board and showed the hairdresser:

The hairdresser told me that I have much more hair than those women and that it would not look like that. He spent a lot of time thinning out my hair. Anyway, I like it.  But I think he was supposed to make my neck more elegant and swanlike?


There was a tardy mother's day card from Rascal, after all:

It really sets up a fork-themed pun on the inside, doesn't it? "My mom is the forkiest!" or "Best mom of all tines!" or "you're the salad-est!", right?

But on the inside, nothing fork-themed. They were just forking with us.


On Saturday, we performed "Let's Go!" by Matt and Kim for a talent show. Like, we have a family band! It was our maiden performance! I played piano, Jammies was on drums. Hawaii and Pokey were vocals.

There are exactly four chords - it's a very simple song.  On the other hand, Hawaii hid behind me and clutched my hand and Ace clutched my feet and rocked back and forth, so I don't think I could have handled more than four chords. All in all we rocked pretty hard.

Hawaii freaked out a couple minutes before showtime with terrible stage fright. (The compromise was that she got to hide.) Next week is her piano recital. If you recall, her last piano recital was two years ago, and it was a stunning disaster.  We shall see what happens!


Hawaii named her boat The U.S.S. Food:

Hokey Pokey named his catamaran Kitty:

Ace named her tugboat Sadness:

Rascal named his boat Unhnnh? with his palms upturned, indicating confusion:

That all happened with E. Messily's direction, obviously.


Ace bit her tongue and it bled. I comforted her and she said, "Mom, are you going to fill out an incident report?"  That made me laugh.

All my children bite through their tongues, and I do too - it hurts like fuck. It bleeds and there's not much you can do about it. It turns out that other people do not do this. I'm not sure why we are unable to keep track of our tongues.

Haircut, tongues

I also love your haircut. Very cool!

But... other people don't bite their tongues? This can't be so. Everyone in my family bites their tongues, often hard enough to draw blood. Dr. Skull does too.

Who are these people who don't bite their tongues?

Re: Haircut, tongues

I know! Not everybody does! I don't think Jammies nor E. Messily do, for starters.

Re: Haircut, tongues

I don't bite my tongue but I DO think your haircut looks grand!

Re: Haircut, tongues

What! I do so! I'm just not effusive enough, apparently. I'll try to fawn over you more in the future. And check your blog more often.

Re: Haircut, tongues

HAHA I totally thought this was a response to people loving your haircut. You're right, I don't bite my tongue until it bleeds. Ever, I don't think. The insides of my cheeks, every once in a while.

Re: Haircut, tongues

Me too.

I think on the tongue, it's a function of having some edge of a tooth which is razor-sharp from one unlucky angle. It's not about chomping that much harder than anyone else does, so much as slicing through. It still hurts like the bejeezus.

Also yes to the haircut! I'm going to get mine cut in something I hope cooler and definitely that doesn't look exactly like my dad's, which I'm afraid is what I have going on now.


(It's telling me to confirm I'm a human and not giving me any way to do it. Stop, lj!!!)

Yeah, it's super obnoxious. They are often plagued with all these crazy Russian attacks.

You definitely don't want a haircut like my dad's which is bald with the thinnest of combovers. Actually, he sported the 1960's era mod sidepart and the balding just ate it away from underneath, so it was sort of unfair that it resembled a combover.

But your hair looks great short! Post photos.
