It’s Not A Pretty Subject…

Some of you will not want to talk about it. Others see it happening, but choose to ignore it. Then there are those of us who need to ask someone…what’s up with the HAIR?

Part of the blessedness of being 49andcounting is hair…loss, graying, thinning…and to my surprise…growing!! What? No one told me about the hair growing business. I’ve got to say, I wasn’t quite ready for this!  Am I the only one that with age came hair growth?

I looked forward to the day that I would be old enough to have thinning leg hair. Ahhh, fewer shavings. And that is news to my ears when it comes to bending over to shave.  Thinning eyebrow hair…well, that can be remedied with a pencil if I really get desperate. So…not a problem.

I was born with a thick head of black (yes, I said black) hair, so I’m not really worried about the head. Graying…well we all know what to do with that.  A trip to Walmart and $7 bucks later and waalaa….beeaauuttiifulll!!!

Here’s the deal…facial hair!!! At 49andcounting those are becoming dirty words! Suddenly I had to purchase a good pair of tweezers, because these little hairs started growing on my chin! (Yuck, I know, I hate to say it, but let’s get real and talk about it!)

Then if that’s not bad enough, just recently I noticed all this “peach fuzz” on my face, like soft white hair…only, I can grab it! That says…”it’s long”!  I swear to you I have never had all this peach fuzz before.  What am I to do? I absolutely refuse to shave. Snip? Clip?

Now that I have this whole ‘facial hair’ issue to deal with, my eyesight is getting worse! My greatest fear is someone in the grocery line staring at a stray chin hair that I’ve missed!

Thank goodness for sisters and pinky promises that if I’m ever “not of sound mind” or “in a coma”, she will take care of the job! That’s love!

I know, I know…the  “of sound mind” is a matter of opinion.  But I’m trusting her on this, because the promise works both ways…and I know she doesn’t want to go out with chin hairs 🙂


About 49andcounting

Hi! I'm a mom, wife, grammy, sister, friend at that ALMOST 50 age!! (Okay, since I started this a few years ago...well, add a bit to 49andcounting!) How the heck did I get here so fast?!? I love, love, love- my girls, antiques, rural America, history, Jesus, junkin,the lake and my Big Boy...not particularly in that order. It's about time I change this profile a bit. After a year or living in our 5th wheel in beautiful Pennsylvania, My Big Boy and I are back to the Kansas Prairies. And there's just nothing like "Home Sweet Home". Hitting the Big 50 has its own unique, well...let's say...blessings :) So come along, laugh with me...cry with me...praise God with me...and let's do this 49andcounting thing, together!
