Shaving again

    As the title says, at long last I'm shaving again. I'm pretty distracted by the ongoing construction of Mosaic Commons, the new cohousing community we are moving to, and so more things slip through the cracks than usual. Oh, and being temporarily in an apartment until the new home is complete, with most of my stuff in storage, doesn't help.

    My usual state of facial hair these days is a full beard. It's been getting rather long and scruffy though, as I seem to have misplaced the AC adapter to my trimming razor. My failing memory tells me I did actually recharge the trimmer since being in this apartment, but I've searched everywhere that same memory thinks the AC adapter might be, and a few other spots, and I can't find it. Even when I am sure it must be in one of several spots I've already looked, and I look again. Must be gremlins.

    I do have other razors, but they are for a clean shaven face, which I have very little of, and their trimmers are poor. So I finally overcame my cheap nature and decided it was time to look decent again and get a new trimmer razor. A quick trip to Target to get a birthday present for one of my youngest son's friend's party, and I checked out the razors. Of course, they didn't have my model (Norelco G250), but I wasn't surprised as I had googled it and found few places listing it. There weren't many choices, so I went with the same manufacturer, Phillips/Norelco G370. It has a different system for trimming to a certain height, but what choice did I have. Being a cranky old yankee, when I don't want to change, I really don't want to change. Sigh.

    I didn't think of this when I bought the new razor, but once I got it home and opened the package, I realized that the AC adapter might fit my old one. And guess what, it does. Woot. Now I have 2 trimmer razors that wll be useless if I misplace the 1 AC adapter. :-) I decided to try the new razor, because it did seem like it might be a safer way to trim back my beard without overdoing it. I started at the highest level and level by level slowly trimmed the beard. And while it was kinda neat feeling all that chin hair, now that I'm back to my old length, I really prefer it, and it definitely looks neater.

    Next step? I want to see if the new razor works as well for maintenance trimming as it did for major trimming. Hmmm, with cold weather coming, and winter break at hand, maybe I should have left the beard until next year. Too late now. :-)
