Hair Freedom

Hair Status: Most of it is shaved. Around 95% of it is now my natural color. I have some blond highlights left and although I love my blonde friends, it’s never suited my complexion so I’ll be happy when it’s all cut out. We are thinking 2 more cuts and I’ll be completely natural. I’m hoping it’s totally white but you just don’t know until it’s all done and it literally changes everyday.

I’ve been coloring my hair for at least 25 years and it got to the point I had to touch it up every 1.5 to 2 weeks. I mentally couldn’t do it anymore and with my crazy health, who knows what all the chemicals were doing to my body.

People have asked if I feel free with it shaved off and I absolutely do. I also feel free and more myself not dying it all the time.

My husband told me not to even grow it back but we’ll see. It all depends on what shade of silver it ends up being.

I’m thankful for the support of a group of gorgeous ladies that encourage each other to be natural. People discouraged them to go silver and some have become print models because they didn’t listen to what others had to say.

I’ll always have positive things to say about your color if you have positive things to say about mine. 😉

P.S. If you don’t want to use a filter, take your selfie by your stainless steel fridge. Lol

From me to you

De Soave’s advice to you if you are 49 1/2 years old or older…

Buy Cheater/reader glasses in bulk at Sams Club. 👓 👓 👓 👓

Taking Glucosamine may or may not actually help joint pain but all that matters is you think it does.


Unless you enjoy heartburn finish eating 2 hours before bed. 🍕🍔🍟

Otherwise, you will constantly be googling the symptoms between heartburn and a heart attack.

Strange limps upon rising will disappear 30-45 minutes after getting up OR you can google stretches that you can do from the comfort of your 🛏.

Your lower back will most likely hurt on and off (even when you do your physical therapy exercises) until the day you die. I have no advice but I thought you should know.

Last but not least, being in a relationship with someone close to your own age is better for your psyche at this stage in life.

Together you can share cheater/reader glasses, Glucosamine, stretch routines and Tums.

Remember…sharing is caring.

Waiting for my ENT app yesterday…
Cutest little elderly man on earth: I’m here for my appointment (extremely loud).
Receptionist: Sir, I don’t see your name on our list. What are you here for?
Cutest little elderly man on earth: Huh? I can’t hear you?
Receptionist: (much louder now) What are you here for?
My thoughts: I’m no doctor but I can tell you why Richard is here.
Cutest little elderly man on earth: You have to look at me so I can read your lips.
Receptionist: WHAT ARE YOU HERE FOR?
My thoughts: Doesn’t matter how loud you talk Trish, he’s not going to hear you.
Cutest little elderly man on earth: I’m here to get my hearing aids fixed.
My thoughts: Maybe I should be a doctor.

Anyway, I couldn’t stop laughing but thankfully he couldn’t hear me.
