I wonder who else isn’t reading my blog

I already know which of my offspring doesn’t and have stored that information along with my Christmas shopping list and will revision. I know my doctors don’t because none have dropped me from their practice and/or apologized for prompting me to complain in what was going to be a positive blog about journeying through breast cancer.   My husband would probably read it more often if I added some obscure music facts and/or video.  Yesterday I found out someone else hasn’t been keeping up with me. Paula Young Wigs. I got an email asking why I hadn’t made a purchase in a while and offering me incentive to come back.  I immediately started to fire off a reply that I no longer needed a wig because my hair had made a triumphant return!  Luckily before I hit send I realized the people at Paula Young not only don’t care why I needed a wig to begin with, but would be even less interested in why I don’t.  Then I started wigging out (see what I did there?) about the so called quality of these wigs if they expected me to have replaced them already.   I mean, I had one freebie from the ACS and bought two myself so I would have some variety. How many wigs does the average wig wearer own and how often do they need replacement?  If I sold wigs I would sell them in days of the week packs like the panties we used to get as kids.  I’m telling ya, nothing could screw up your day more than wearing Thursday’s underwear on Monday.  Maybe that’s not such a good idea after all.  Women who are wearing wigs because they’ve lost their hair to chemo or other medical conditions have enough stress.

Back to the panties for a second.. I always figured they were a good idea for kids.. reminds them to change every day.  Now I see they make them for adults too and I’m entertaining myself with possible reasons why.  If my underwear say Monday I am supposed to be at the office….

Oh! They also have them for men. Now that’s probably a good idea.

    I’m reading your blog, although my offspring do not read mine, either! Love your wit and humor (and sarcasm?) and yes, days-of-the-week undies for men, “GREAT IDEA!” 😉

    Yeah, I feel you (again). How many friends have asked me how I’m doing – when if they’d check my blog every week or two, they’d know? If you actually care about someone, how hard is it to go to a site and spend five minutes reading?? Or even easier – get posts by email. And it’s considerate in that if they’d read my blog, I don’t have to recap something I’ve already composed and posted. In the last few months, if they asked in an email, I started just sending a link to my blog.

      I’m not really upset if someone doesn’t read my blog. I was kind of making fun of myself for thinking Paula Young would be excited for me 😉 I get what you are saying though.. it gets tiresome repeating yourself over and over. Good idea to link up the blog in emails!

    Funny, I was just deciding what to do with my 3 wigs when I got your blog post! Thanks for making me laugh! I had 3 wigs as well. I am going to donate one, keep one, and sell one! Hmm, I had those panties as a kid, too!

      First.. love the new picture! I was thinking of donating mine too. I will never wear them again and in fact, hardly wore them at all. They really are nice. Thanks for the reminder 🙂

    My sister does not read mine since I put something in there that annoyed her, oh well. As for the panties..too funny!

    I saw it! 😉

    I haven’t told anyone I have a blog. Still not sure if I want anyone to know!

    I just found out that my mom isn’t reading my blog. I originally made it for my family and friends. Apparently my English is too elaborate (for them home in DK), I just wonder why no one has made me aware of this, instaed of letting me rant on an on, thinking I was giving them information. But maybe they were just trying to be polite; at this point I guess it doesn’t matter 😉

    None of my family or off line friends read my blog.. ever!

    Wow and here I am mad that everyone is reading mine and I am kinda seeing the other side. I was upset because I felt my family should call and see how I am doing instead of going by my blog like everyone else..oops! Guess it’s a good thing?

    My husband has days of the week socks which he loves… but I don’t think he wears them on the right days. I could do with some as since I’m not working I’ve completely lost track of what day it is. Monday is chemo day, Tuesday is lie in day etc…

      I hear you.. time had no meaning for quite a while for me. Days of the week socks for men is hilarious to me for some reason 😉
