Wallet? Check. Eyebrows? Check.

We all have our habits prior to leaving the house…whether it’s to fly out in a flurry of outerwear, check that the oven is off or to turn off all of the lights.



I make sure my eyebrows are done.


Last fall I finally sucked it up and went to my local beauty boutique with what ailed me…eyebrows that aren’t just sparse from overpluck-age when I was a teenager, but are nearly non-existent due to lupus.

(Read about “Hair Loss and Lupus”, from

As in, I likely only need my two hands to count how many follicles I have on each side. 🙁

So, I entered, I sat and I left…much poorer in the pocketbook and much richer in the esteem.  They taught me a new skill that would improve my appearance, thus my self-esteem would step up right alongside.  (note: the girl made me look like a goddamn gorilla…but I went home and did what every woman with a bad haircut does…started from scratch)

Dude, you thought I don’t leave the house without makeup?

1. Wallet

2. Keys

3. Eyebrows.

My question to you is….


Favourite gloves?  Particular purse? Lip balm? Mp3 player?

Eyebrows? 😉

    I don’t know… cause at some point I have left the house with anything I would name. Wallet, phone, lip gloss, water, sunglasses, and yes several times keys. I seriously need a list by the door and have no idea why I have never put one there…. oh wait, cause I just forget to look at sticky notes on the door, take things hanging on the doorknob to come with me, or on the floor by the door. I don’t know how I get anywhere or get anything done 🙂

      I even have a dry-erase little board, fun-shaped flower at that, at the front door. Dunno where the marker went to. Never remember to look at it, either…sheesh…and my keys hang right freakin’ beside it!! LOL 😉

    Yeah for you! What a difference eye brows make and I’m glad you did this for yourself. Why is that store make-up artists always have to take every make-up application to the max?!? I always tell them to use a “light hand” and I still look like I’m painted up for a 1970s disco when they’re done 😉

    Me, I suppose I won’t leave the house without under eye concealer to hid the dark circles from fatigue. And my wrist guards– Those are a biggie especially if I need to carry anything.

    I’ve had a couple of hair falls – but mostly what I have is extra hair from prednisolone. So I not only have eyebrows, but a moustache and sideburns as well. I go through a lot of wax!

    What to I never leave the house without? Depends on how bad “brain fog” is…. I’ve pretty much lost everything it’s impossible to do without!
