There is hair everywhere!  I can’t handle it.  I just can’t!  I am in the post pregnancy stage where one begins to shed their hair.  I am scared I am not going to have any left if it keeps falling out at this rate.  It is everywhere.  In the bathtub, on the bathroom floor, living room floor, well, on every floor!  I also find them in annoying places, like wrapped around Maisie’s little hand.  I am scared one will get wrapped around her neck and strangle her during a nap.  Ok, not really, but I swear these hairs have a mind of their own finding themselves in all sorts of places. 

I have never been much of a shedder.  My friends in college, now THEY were shedders.  No offense girls if you read this!   But seriously, they would shed something that looked like a dead mouse.  Ew.  Mine is still not that bad, but bad enough that I have to clean out my hairbrush everyday and do a wipe down of the bathroom floor a few times a day. 

Speaking of gross stuff on the floor.  I have never lived in a more dirty place as the place I live now.  We have the worst dust ever.  People come parading in in their shoes that they have walked the city of Paris wearing and I will NOT go into detail about what types of nastiness could be found on any given shoe that has walked the streets here.  Anyways, I am finding it impossible to clean.  When I get in the bath I have to let the water run, just to wash the grossness off of my feet from walking barefoot in my own apartment.  I feel like a dirty person.  Maybe I am.  I just find it impossible to clean.

Ok, seriously, I know this is a boring post, but I just felt the need to write something and this is what happens to be on my mind at the moment. 

If I am bald or balding pretty badly the next time you see me, deal.  Maybe that will be my new "ish" to share.  I think it is just about time for another hair fiasco.  Don’t you think?

    I’ll just assume you weren’t talking about me. I don’t remember any dead mice coming out of my head! Yuck!

    No, it wasn’t you Jamie. I would have said roommate if it were you or Anna. I think we all know who I am talking about here…

    Isn’t it amazing how having a little child can make one realize how much stuff there is on the floor? I agree though, Jen. Your place is pretty dusty. As for the hair, hmmmmm. Guess you won’t have to worry about how to style it if it all falls out! JK. Not very encouraging, am I? I love that you post about strange random things. It makes reading your blog fun! Love you!

    Your funny! Katie is so glad her hair is falling out she had so much during the pregnancy and now its finally going back to normal for her!

    That is funny Bandna because I actually liked my hair during the pregnancy because it wasn’t so thin!
