Here is Why I Hopped That Jet Plane

Remember last Monday when I shared all about hopping a jet plane – I was OUTTA here. Well, I’m home again and happily so; however, my week away was AMAZING. I couldn’t share specifics (at that time) about why I hopped that jet plane but now I can and plan to do just that. (my niece, me, my brother, and sister – Fort Christmas, Florida) Here is Why I Hopped That Jet Plane I was adopted at the ripe old age of 6 weeks, placed into a wonderful … Read more…

Video: Full Length – Shaving My Head Bald

Hair It Is

Full Length Shaving My Head BaldI am so excited to be bringing you the entire (minus several minutes of silliness and fluff – you’re welcome) full length video of me shaving my head bald. Though it took a couple weeks to get everything in order, once I get these initial videos posted, things will be a lot smoother going forward. Learning a new (to me) video editing program, finding out some ins and outs at Vimeo, and having to deal with some personal issues didn’t help matters BUT we are here. Finally. YAY!

What can you expect in this video?

  • The entire weepy intro plus the cuts.
  • Shaving my head with guards #4 and #2.
  • Shaving my head bald with no guard.
  • The wrap up and end.

If you aren’t familiar with my style, you should know… I don’t script my videos. I also haven’t made any (besides my Ice Bucket Challenge Vid) in quite some time, so I’m a little rusty. Add to that the fact that this is also emotional for me and…well…as the hubs is fond of saying one of reasons he fell in love with me: I say what I mean and I mean what I say even if sometimes it comes out sideways. Tis what it is.

Full Length – Shaving My Head Bald

So yah. There’s that. I make no apologies. Later on I’m sharing this whole thing split into 3 parts and then seriously shortened and sped up, for those of you who want to watch it really fast and furious. I’m proud of all of it. The cutting, shaving, filming, editing, and now the building of what looks like is going to be a wicked awesome series of growing my hair out.

I hadn’t really thought it through when I decided to shave my head bald.

I hadn’t really thought it through when I decided G should film it.

I hadn’t really thought it through when I decided we should put it up here.

And now it’s become this whole big thing.

Well. Just a lil series of me shaving my head bald and then growing it out again.

I hope you enjoy it and I truly hope you’ll come along for the weekly progress updates throughout the grow-out process. Shaving it and shaping it is going to be just as fun as what you see above (minus the tears, I promise).

YAY! Thanks for watching and “see” you soon!

Video: Intro – Why I’m Shaving My Head Bald

Hair It Is

Why I'm Shaving My Head BaldBack on October 5th – no wait, let’s go back even further…because I’ve been planning this for quite some time – shaving my head bald. I just hope I’ve explained why I’m shaving my head bald, well enough. Or why I did it; since it’s done, already. I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to explain it exactly right for everyone to understand. And anyone who watches the video (coming later today with all the versions – I went a touch crazy with editing several different…) may or may not understand the why. That’s okay. I know why I did it.

The why of it is important to note, even if you cannot understand it personally. At least you may accept that I needed to do it for me.

And this intro – why I’m shaving my head bald?

I’ve got to warn you. It is WEEPY! Filled with tears as I try to tell you a tiny bit of what we’ve been through (as a family) over the last year. It doesn’t matter, though. Not right now. You are here to watch me shave my head bald.

This here is the intro to that. The rest will follow.

Introduction – Why I’m Shaving My Head Bald

It has taken just over 2 weeks to pull all this together and get everything organized properly (the way I want it, honestly), due to physical and technical issues beyond my control. And perhaps a bit of self doubt, as well. But I am determined to tell a story here. Shaving my head bald and growing it out again – we’re going to film the entire process – is all a part of that.


I do hope you’ll come along for this hair raising adventure!

~ Cheers

18 Photos: Shaving My Head Bald

Shaving My Head Bald

Finally. And only a week late. The 18 (plus one) screen grabs of me shaving my head bald that I promised you all last Wednesday. Which must mean the videos aren’t too far behind.

Could be. Hard tellin’, not knowin’.

For now, I hope you enjoy these images below and let me know if there is anything you’d like to see me do differently as I work on growing my hair out into my intended style.

I know I haven’t even shown you the videos of the actual shaving my head bald, yet; but I am getting to it. And as we progress through the entire process, I hope you’ll come along for the ride.

Alrighty, I’m off to put the finishing touches on the 57 videos I’ve been editing and get those ready to post (just kidding, RE: 57…sorta). Then I’ll head over to YouTube and say hi (hopefully they remember me over there, yikes) to a few friends and fans.

Remember, I’ll be updating and/or shaving/cutting weekly with vids throughout this entire process, so if you don’t want to miss a thing, be sure to subscribe to our Newsletter (right at the tippy top of the page). We don’t spam your inbox and right now you can expect an every other day (approx.) kind of thing in regard to your one daily email via Mail Chimp from Informed Sharing.

Okay, now I’m back to editing…”see” you soon – I’m so excited to share this with all of you! 🙂

I have a style in mind as I grow my hair out but would love to hear from all of you. What would you do with this head of mine? As you can see, I’m open for any and all suggestions…

Just Chill Today…

Just Chill Today

Today is officially my one year “anniversary” from the day I woke up and discovered that my life was changed. I had planned to mark this day with three posts – the last an awesome slideshow of screen grabs from Sunday’s video shoot of me shaving my head bald. Unfortunately, we’re just (gonna) chill today. I know I may be confusing some folks with all this and I’m sorry for that, truly. I am trying to be here to start telling the story about my condition and all … Read more…

Amazing Love and Support

Amazing Love and Support

Today, I want to remark about the amazing love and support that’s been happening since this September Month of Giving began. Here we are with only 6 days left in the month and boy HOWDY what a crazy ride of a roller coaster… But the love and support of so many has been simply amazing. You may not know about any of it other than having to read me go on and on all month long but there has been an outpouring happening all over the place for … Read more…

Do You Have $5 I Can Borrow?

Do You Have $5 I Can Borrow?

How many times has a friend asked you that question – “do you have $5 I can borrow?” Or have you asked it of a friend – “hey, can I borrow five bucks?” I don’t know, can you? …hee hee. Oh, but I giggle. Anyway, many times I’m sure, you haven’t given it too much thought. You’ve either had it to lend, or you haven’t. Your ability to give it depends on the first part of that equation. So today, I’m asking, without any trepidation, since it’s been … Read more…

It’s HARD to Ask for Stuff!

It's Hard to Ask for Stuff

Depending upon how you look at the title, you might find it right or wrong – it’s HARD to ask for stuff! Maybe you find it quite easy to ask. I know my kid has no problem asking for what she needs or wants. Sometimes annoyingly so. I think that’s part of growing up, maybe. As we get older, however, it’s sort of expected that what we need or want isn’t just handed to us or given without some effort, in any case. If we want something, we … Read more…

A Broken Leg, Not a Broken Spirit – Meet Lisa

A Broken Leg, Not a Broken Spirit

Recently, my FB friend Lisa broke her leg rather badly while running a race for charity with her daughter. Her mother, in an act of true love and support, set up a Go Fund Me campaign to try and raise funds to help her and her family through this difficult time. The following is my understanding of this story about a broken leg, not a broken spirit. Lisa Mason and I are Facebook friends and yet I barely know her. You know how that is sometimes. You hook … Read more…

What a Roller Coaster – Meet Briana

What a Roller Coaster

This WHOLE THING began because of Briana. This September Month of Giving. And what a roller coaster it has been. Up and down and all around – the stress alone is enough to… …perhaps I had better start at the beginning. Briana is another dear friend of mine who recently found herself (along with her husband, cat, and bird) in a situation beyond their control. Seriously beyond their control. To the point where they were looking at possibly being without a home or having to move to another … Read more…
