Writings of a teachermom, choosing to stay home with her kids, while loathing all domestic responsibilities! In late Aug. 2008, I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer. After surgery, chemo and radiation, I was given theall clear. However, in the late summer of 2008, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor, which metasticized to other areas.

I can't believe I'm posting this picture!

My hair is starting to grow back.

I mean it must be coming in pretty fast.

Because a couple days ago, while walking around the Mall of America, a guy at one of those carts came up to my sister and I, not once…but twice…asking us…

if we wanted our hair straightened or curled.

Does it look like I’m in need of any kind of styling device?

God bless you, Cari!! You are so blessedly funny and have tons of spunk and spark to go along with it. I CAN see your hair growing back! Before long, we'll be back at Juut for your first haircut, post-treatment. :)

P.S. I couldn't walk away after mentioning Juut and not thank you again for such a great morning!!! You were a blessing to me in more ways than one that day. Thank you!

I guess it proves you don't need many brain cells to work at a mall kiosk. I think it would've been hilarious if you'd pulled off your scarf and said "Yes. I'd like it curled please."

that story really cracked me up, cari. did you even bother with a smart remark? and also, who agrees to let those guys style their hair? sometimes i see people in the chairs, and i wonder what they are thinking.

YOU ARE SO FUNNY! Isn't it amazing how people open wide and insert a foot in the mouth?

Glad to see your humor is back and back with a vengence!

We love you. :)

I'm with Andrea. That must have been some wig you were wearing. Apparently, brains weren't included with the straightener (or curler). You should have gone up to any people that were sitting at the kiosk, pulled off your wig (or scarf), and said, "Get up quickly! See what they did to me!" LOL!! Just kidding!

I love the picture! You're the BEST!
Love & hugs!

I was wearing a scarf. I didn't say anything, just kept walking because well, that's just me. But I thought of a lot of great things to say later on...typical.

You are hilarous! And you have such a great sense of humor. Glad to hear your hair is beginning to grow back. Hooray!!

You look like your DAD

Now I know my dad's hair is thinning...but not that bad!

I can't tell if your hair needs styled but something must be done about your tongue. LOL

You are beautiful with or without hair.

I admit I was stupid enough to let one of the girls in the mall try the hair straightener thing with me, but it's just because I'm awful at saying no. Sad I know. She was plenty ticked when I refuse to pay a mere 250.00 for a hair tool. I have my nerve, huh?
