The woman with the missing eyebrow!

Way to start back right (get it..."back"...a hairy one at that!)  London took Cosmetology in school this year so she had access to buy professional products at wholesale price.  So we went shopping and I saw the professional wax pots for sale and immediately thought of all the money I could save with 3 women needing eyebrows done regularly.  Since I have been getting my eyebrows done for years.....I am an expert and know what they are doing right?

Well, we brought this home ready to experiment and none of us girls were willing to go first so I coaxed Sean into being our helper.  He has hair to spare, so he agreed.

Look at those expect hands!

With the practice done, I am ready to attempt to do London's
Woohoo!  Not half bad.  Look at that cutie.
London wasn't confident enough to do mine so I gave Sean a class on how to do it and he was willing to try!  He did amazing the first time.  He is very meticulous and picky so he carefully stayed in the right spots and I was very happy with his job and saved $15!
Skip ahead a couple of months and it was time to do it again.  I just assumed he would remember all the things I showed him the first time so we didn't have a re-fresher course. I just let him go for it!  Well, the first eyebrow was good and on the second eyebrow he forgot to get out new strips and I told him to hurry up as it would dry on he grabbed a used strip and pulled!  Well you guessed it. The unthinkable happened.  The used wax pulled out half of my eyebrow!

FYI:  The next day was the first day of my new job!  The only reason Sean is still living is that my bangs were long enough to hide most of it.  Also thank goodness for eyebrow pencils.
So here sits my wax pot.....would you try again?  I know Sean will never do it again.  I don't think I can do it on my own.  Do you?

I AM ALIVE!!!  I know that most people have given up on my blog but I just wanted to say I am still here and plan on blogging several times this week.  I have a really hard time with January and February because of my Seasonal Depression.  If you look back in all my years there are hardly any posts in those months.  This year was especially hard as we are struggling to become a family of 4 instead of the original 3 of us.  I am starting to feel hope return into my life and I feel a need to record the events that have happened over the last few months.  I have missed this.
