Lice Girls giving and receiving a treatment.

Well, it finally happened, this Lice Girl got lice.  So, I had been itching like crazy for four days. Sarah and I had barely crossed paths and I kept forgetting to have her check me. Then this morning I woke up and my neck was itching like crazy and sure enough I look into the mirror at home and I have the dreaded neck rash that happens when you have lice!! OH S#$!, no way….

Neck rash from head lice infestation

This may not seem logical…wouldn’t you be itchy before your head lice was so bad that you had a rash on the back of your neck?  Well, no. Only half of people with head lice itch at all, but many clients come to us with rashes on the back of their necks. We treated a doctor who was going to start medication for a staff infection because she couldn’t figure out why she couldn’t get rid of the rash on her neck…turns out she had head lice!

I had heard about Lice Girls, a new lice removal service on the Island. So, in we went for a head check after yet another lice scare.

St. Patrick’s Day Terror

trap

The 2012 Leprechaun trap was very well thought out by the kids, many drafts and samples were made, in fact it was foolproof and I assumed we would wake up to a squirrel or some other woodland creature stuck in it. This mama can become a little too immersed in creative endeavors and it certainly backfired on that fateful night…

Women starting businesses…oh, yes we can!

we can do itLast night the Lice Girls attended the Bainbridge Business Women’s monthly meeting at Bon Bon’s (yum!). It was very hard to network with wine and truffles…no really, it was…try having a conversation with a mouthful of the most amazing truffles in the world…not easy or elegant. Being the tough women that we are, we persevered and had a fantastic time!
