Eyebrow Disaster

So. As anyone who has seen me recently knows, I've sorta let myself go in the eyebrow department. It looked like I had two caterpillars crawling across my forehead. Well, let's call a spade a spade. It actually looked like I had one long caterpillar crawling across my forehead. It's because I refuse to pluck between waxings! I HATE PLUCKING! I'd rather wax all the hairs every single day than pluck one hair one time. I really hate plucking! But, I also get pretty lazy and forget to go get them waxed. It's not like I'm 'dashing' in anywhere with all these kids. And I bought an at home wax kit once, and smeared it all over those suckers, but then I chickened out and couldn't go thru with it. So I walked around for days with dried up wax up there.

Anyway. On my way to the grocery store yesterday, I finally broke down and dashed in to a nail shop right around the corner to get it done. The little lady actually giggled and said 'oh, you need lotta wax!' in her little accent!!! So I laid down and closed my eyes and tuned out because, truth be told, it really hurts. I mean, REALLY. I sort of thought it was weird when I felt her smear wax on TOP of my eyebrows, but I just figured, eh, maybe I've got eyebrows growing up to my hairline or something. Who knows?

It wasn't until I got home that I really took a good look. This lady has LOWERED MY EYEBROWS. How is that even possible? She like, took tons of hairs off the tops, and not a lot off the bottoms...it's really strange! It's like, eyelashes, tiny strip of eyelid skin, then eyebrows. And they're in a perfectly straight up-and-down line next to my nose, they're not tapered in towards each other, if that makes sense. And no, I'm not including a pic. What am I supposed to do now? Let them get all crazy for a few months and have them totally redone? Take off the bottoms and have super skinny eyebrows for a few months? Who knows?!?!? I just don't get it! I mean, I've been doing this for uhh, well, probably thirteen years. No, that's assuming I'm twenty six, I'm more like twenty eight, right? So that's FIFTEEN YEARS! And out of nowhere, someone has gone and lowered my eyebrows. Huh. What're ya gonna do, right?
