Ok, this might show up 5 times or none at all…I have been trying to get back to my new blog but I kept going to tumbler.com which is the Tervis website. Over and over I just kept getting the Tervis site not the cool blogger site of which I am now part of.
Continued getting the tervis site and finally gave up and had a look around…did you know they have a 16 ounce Goblet?? I did not. Anyway I googled tumbler blogs and was directed to none other than tumblr.com. I get it. Bloggers don’t like vowels. Lot to learn in this newcreative endeavor time sucker. See, on a blog you can do that, cross through words. Facebook won’t let ya! HA!
I know you are waiting for “Crazy Tennis Lady” details. Trust me, they are coming. But today was 2nd treatment day of LiceFest 2013. AFTER crazy tennis lady I had an appointment with the Lice Lady. A girl just wants to have fun.
If you find yourself heading there. (get it, “heading there”) Don’t look for a big sign displaying “Pediatric Hair Solutions”. There won’t be a marquee with a big ole bug on it. Not even a picture of anybody scratching their head! Nothing.You will see the big realty sign because that is where they are discretely located. In a real estate office. Well played Lice Lady, well played.
I go busting in for my appointment and guess what?? I KNOW THE LICE LADY!! I KNOW HER! I KNOW HER!! She used to date my hubby’s pal back when everyone was single. I remembered her, she remembered me! What a joyous reunion, at the Lice Lady’s clinic. In the real estate building.
I instantly felt better because not only is she The Lice Lady, but I know her AND she was in the medical profession from what I remembered. Nurse? Physical Therapist? Social worker? Ok, maybe I just thought she used to be in the medical profession. Don’t quote me, it’s been awhile. Maybe the last time I saw her was at a Dr’s office and we were both patients. I really don’t know.
Anyway, we get down to business and this place is the bomb! She has a microscope, she has examples ranging from nits to louse, she has these crazy awesome glasses that magnify a bajillion times! She has a zapper machine that really is what I should have just done instead of buying all the stuff and doing it myself.
I got all the loot I needed for my second diy home lice remedy. I learned that the Lice Lady is busy, realllllly busy. But also learned that the Lice Lady does a lot of philanthropy. She donates her services to foster children. She does the same for a children’s home/facility in Clinton. I really really liked that about the Lice Lady. It made me feel good knowing that someone like her was helping those who really needed it.
It made me think of my lice. Especially tonight as I sat quietly and pulled the comb through Abby’s hair while the other two sat making friendship bracelets with greasy goo on their heads. Abby said she liked me going through her hair. Caroline said it was like playing salon and could we do it every night. I think of the Lice Lady as bringing families together. Forcing us to spend hours upon hours just sitting (and combing) but sitting. Being.
I’ve done a little a lot of complaining about LIceFest 2013. When I think of all the parentless children the Lice Lady is taking care of it kinda hurts my heart. I’m going to be more grateful as I pluck nits from my amazing children. If you have to have your nits picked by anybody other than your mamma, I’m glad to know the Lice Lady is the one doing it.
