Hi everyone.I am leaving for my cruise in two days.wow.i took the big step and got my hair cut real short today.Dr. said I would loss it in a short while.So now I don,t have much to loss.And I went to an American Red cross wig bank.And you won,t believe this but they had a wig the same style and color of my hair before I cut it today.I put it on and my daughter didn,t know the difference.I can,t beleive my luck.I usually am not that lucky.I have had a hard time with lossing my hair like I know allot of you also have.So I listen to the advice some of you gave me.And so glad I did. And my hair don,t look to bad this short.I also got my heavenley hats yesterday.I would not have known about any of this stuff if some of you didn,t pass the info.Thanks everyone.I love you all.(Pat)

    Can I go?
    Pat,
    How awesome to be going on a cruise! Where 2? Hope you have a wonderful relaxing & peaceful time away! I'm on my 4th day of short hair. It's so different!! But,I'm adjusting. Just happy to have hair for now. I don't believe that was luck that led you to the wig bank and just so happened to of had your hair there! What a blessing!
    So are you packed and all ready to go? Are you forgetting anything? Be sure to tell us all about it when you get back!

    Pat,
    Have a great time and I know you will.
    Maybe we should all plan a cruise together sometime somewhere. We should all start savings a little extra so we can do this. Those of us who have or are trying to stop smoking put that $7.00 a day aside that a pack of cigarettes cost and then we would each have $2,555 in one year.

    Pat I am so happy that you were able to find a wig that is so close to what your natural style and color is, how wonderful! I know you will have fun on the cruise and look forward to hearing all about your adventures when you get back.

    What a great idea! That would be so fun! You are paying $7/pk? Or is that for two? Whew...it's "only" like 4.50+ here so far. I keep saying ok one more pack, several packs later here I still am smoking! I'll keep trying though.

    I don't
    I don't smoke anymore but I have noticed that the cost here for a pack is about $7.00.

    Have you talked to your doctor about Chantix--it really works--or it worked for me.

    Hi Pat,
    Aren't you 'spose to be on a cruise? You are not allowed on here until you get back! (jk) Go...have fun! See the sites, taste the food, watch other people drink, (lol) shop, treasure all the moments, and don't get sea sick!
    Hugz,
