Good luck with that! If hubby thinks and knows you're a beauty, then just chuck the mascara!!

Hair No news.

Other Well, the mascara strike is ongoing; this is day 2. I admit I'm already struggling. I'm quite the pale gal, with light brown hair and matching lashes -- my lashes are also quite sparse. I also have beady little eyes that hubby teases me about. LOL So I do feel that the mascara helps my baby blues stand out more, which I like. --I've just checked my image in the mirror and honestly think I look a bit sickly w/out mascara! LOL So I'm not sure I'm going to make it an entire week, but I'll see what happens.

Someone at another site suggested a product called Blinc.
http://www.blincinc.com/#mascara
The Blinc product looks interesting but a bit too pricey for my pocketbook. --Still trying to wrap my head around the concept of eyelash "tubes". Shocked
Someone else suggested Latisse. The Latisse product, I've seen it advertised and, while I'm sure it's a godsend for some, I think it's too far into the chemical realm for me. Since the cancer episode, I try to err on the side of caution and am very careful about what I put in and on my body.

One month, one week and one day until Spring!! Cheesy

p.s. Just found out that the wellness screening tests ARE still free, woot!  The text was simply worded badly.   Angry

I think you're wise to be wary of that product. One of the side effects listed in the commercials I've seen is that it can turn blue eyes brown. I like my blue eyes, thank you very much! I'm also very fair with blond eyelashes, and I think I'll just keep using liner and mascara to emphasize my eyes.

I think of some of those medieval paintings of women when I think of pale complexion and light lashes and brows.  I think it's very beautiful but you rarely see it today.  Why anyone would want risk changing their birth given eye color is beyond me.  Yikes, I wouldn't risk it either!  Cancer risk is of course much more serious.

Hair  Did a vinegar rinse this past weekend and did w/out mousse.  I think that will be my plan for now; using mousse Monday through Friday, vinegar rinse on Saturdays or Sundays. 

Other  The mascara challenge is officially over today.
Smiley  I must say, it was quite refreshing not having to put on mascara every morning and taking it off every night. However, as I mentioned, I think I look a little sickly without it. LOL So I've decided I will continue wearing mascara. I've also discovered that there's a big difference between vanity and taking pride in one's appearance.

Good grief, how utterly sick of winter am I?   Angry  I *so* wanted to take a walk over the lunch hour today but I know darn good and well that it's simply too, too cold.  Ugh.

Not really. It's just a question of how inflated that pride is. Roll Eyes

Sad Sorry to hear it. Isn't it kind of an ironic joke of Nature that you hate winter and it seems perpetual where you live, yet it's my favourite season and basically nonexistent here. The grass is always greener, eh? What a terrible analogy. Lips Sealed
But speaking of our green grass, I was thinking of taking off to the coast today to grab a few pictures of our 80 "winter". Now I wonder whether it would make you feel better or just be salt in the wound. Undecided

Angel  Some "photo therapy" would be much appreciated right now.   Smiley 

Yesterday was long and stressful.  One of our kitties, Tigger, the grey tabby, stumbled when he walked, wouldn't eat or drink, was lethargic, and his eyes were doing that rapid back-and-forth thing.  We immediately thought stroke.  Took him to the vet, who drew blood and ran tests.  Ironically she says that, according to his blood work, he's a very healthy cat!  She says his symptoms could be caused from a light stroke or some sort of seizure, but can't be sure.  She put him on some drugs, one of which is a broad spectrum antibiotic.  I stayed home to keep an eye on him and just let him nap all day. 
Now this morning he seems to be doing better.  He ate some soft food last night, some hard food this morning and he used the litter pan.  He's still a little uncoordinated in his gait, but his eyes are no longer doing the twitching thing.  So now we wait--that's the hard part.  Send up some prayers, healing thoughts, positive vibes, etc. if you're a mind to.

Oh, no!  Poor Tigger!!  Poor Tigger's mommy, Trisha!
I am praying for you both right now, and later.
May Grace see you through this day, and Peace be in your heart and mind no matter the outcome.

Oh Trisha!  I'm so sorry about Tigger's health situation.  I pray for a speedy answer from the vet to you and an even speedier recovery for the kitty!

Friday 19 February 2010
Hair  I just didn't feel like washing this morning, so I didn't.  I brought my curling iron to work and worked a little magic in my office.  *waggles eyebrows*  Surprisingly, it looks very decent! 

Other  Tigger says thanks for the prayers, ladies.   Wink  He seems to be getting better day by day, but I don't want to say we're out of the woods yet.  I think the term is "cautiously optimistic".  We're wondering if this isn't an inner ear infection.  Brother in law says when he had a bad inner ear infection years ago, he waddled and stumbled just like Tigger.  --Think drunken sailor on dry land (what?  hasn't everyone seen one of those?!   Huh  tee hee)  In any case, Tigger is eating and drinking well, he's using the litter pan, his eyes are no longer twitching, and he's even venturing outdoors again.  Amazing what 24 hours and a good antibiotic can accomplish.   Smiley

Hair Today is my 5 year member anniversary here at LongLocks! ... LL is one of the few forums where I truly feel at home. Smiley

Other I'm now convinced that Tigger did not suffer a stroke or seizure but instead has something called vestibular disease.
http://www.cathealth.com/vestibular.htm
His symptoms and subsequent quick recovery fit the description to a tee. I printed the article and dropped it by our vet's office Saturday, but didn't speak directly to the vet. Anyway, I'm just thankful Tigger is almost entirely better; his walking is still a bit crooked but that's all. Whew, what a relief! Thanks ladies, for your concern and prayers/healing thoughts. You're the best! ...

I hope things continue to go in the right direction with Tigger.  The waiting and watching is the hard part when loved ones, pet or others aren't well and so many people can't afford treatment for their pets these days if the pet gets sick.
