Is This Nasty or What??

So you've heard about how I'm losing my hair, right? Well, Saturday I decided to do a much needed thorough floor cleaning at my house. It's funny how even if nothing else is clean, if the floors are clean everything else seems cleaner too. So, I vacuumed all of the wood floors with that attachment (we have a central vac) and then switched to the carpet attachment. I vacuumed the kids' rooms, then my bedroom and bathroom rug. When I got into the den to vacuum our rug, the vacuum started making this noise like it had something stuck in it and it was kind of banging around. I turned it off and turned it over and saw hair, EVERYWHERE! It was wound so tightly around the little bar thing that I had to cut it off and pull it out. I had to take a picture just because I've never seen so much hair in a vacuum....and it's all mine! Please tell me how I have any left if just this much was in our carpet...and we only have carpet in the bedrooms! At work, it's collecting on the entry mat. The mat looks like it's growing hair and it's navy so my blonde really shows up well. I tell you it's everywhere and it's grossing me out! When will it stop?!
I have major hair issues...I hate it. I don't want to touch it, don't want it to touch me, mine or anyone else's. It totally grosses me out! I always loved those folks who like to play with hair because I liked that, but please don't ask me to return the favor. When I lived in the sorority house in college, there was one bathroom that 12 girls shared. There were 2 showers in there, but only one drain for both. You can only imagine the hair that collected on this drain, but probably none of it was mine. I'm typically not a heavy shedder. Anyway, one of the cleaning duties was to remove "the beast" from the drain. Seriously, that's what the job was called! That was the nastiest thing. I get nauseous just thinking about it. Don't think I didn't put two rubber gloves on and wrap my hand in toilet paper when I got assigned that job. Disgusting! Enough about my hair rant.. I just had to explain how much I really do get grossed out by it so just imagine me losing it in clumps now!

  1. That is a LOT of hair!!! The cleaning the drain thing is pretty nasty! I hope that the hair loss ends soon. I just about went crazy with mine this last time.

  2. That's funny because just last week I had to do the same thing. So don't worry your not alone...We keep a swiffer vac in our bathroom for my hair issues.....

  7. You weren't kidding about your hair loss. I vacuum several times a week and I have a rainbow and I have a wad of hair/lint each and every time. I can't blame my hair loss on having a baby though!
