Spring is in the Air...

It always hits this time of year...baseball season is starting and the weather is too darn nice out here in AZ...spring fever is upon us. Too bad I can't have a beer or a tasty frozen strawberry margarita. Boo hoo.

It's been one month today since I was diagnosed with the dreaded, stupid C word. It really doesn't feel like it's been a month, it feels like it's been longer. I think maybe because during this month I have been thru a lot. So much has changed it's crazy. I have to look at it this way though, it's one month closer to the end of this nightmare!

I'm still adjusting to my baldness. It really is quite weird. My head gets stuck on my clothes when I put them over my head...it felt funny laying on my pillow and my head feels wet, but it's really just cold. I have a cold noggin.

I was all ready to rock the baldness full on today at work, but my noggin was too cold. We all know that I can't get sick so rather than being totally fierce I wore a bandana for warmth. It totally helped. I really am not used to it at all because I keep forgetting I have no hair. I go to touch my hair, but wait, it's not there. So funny. From fellow baldies I hear that I will get used to it and I'm sure I will. I have to admit it's quite fun. I know some of you out there are jealous. If you want to join the bald-E club just let me know...

My parents have started their journey to Reno and I have been watching the beloved pet. She's a good dog and it's fun for my dogs to have someone to play with.

I have received more information on eating organic and I'm really looking forward to it. I have more research to do but I'm ready to switch out some basics. I know it'll be good for me in the long run.

Thank you all for your comments on my new do, err lack there of a do. I greatly appreciate it. The nicknames keep coming too....Dow came up with a good one today as well...bald-e-gal. HAHAHAHA.

Enough of the blabbing...just wanted you all to know I'm becoming one with my baldness.

Happy Friday!

Love, Bald-E-Gal

  1. I love bandanas, and I'm so glad they are keeping your gorgeous noggin warm. Have you heard about St. Baldricks: http://www.stbaldricks.org/
    There's an event here in SD for that organization and I was considering shaving my head, but I don't think I can muster up the courage yet. You are giving me a ton of inspiration though, I must say! Here's the link to the SD event: http://www.barbasic.com/events.html
    Just scroll down to "Bald is Beautiful" :)
    Enjoy the Spring fever!! I love that feeling!

  2. I must agree with Kelli - my cousin, (female), did St. Baldricks a year or 2 ago and she totally rocked the bald! In fact, her hair hasn't been much longer since! This year she raised almost $7k for the event! It's very cool!

    If your parents need anything while in Reno, I'd be happy to do whatever I can to help! I've got the spare time and would love to show my support! :)

    I love the new nickname! Leave it to Dow!
