Tattooed not much longer

I’m having plastic surgery tomorrow morning to remove a portion of my ankle tattoo. It’s due to a red ink allergy most likely and doesn’t appear until the second tattoo!
I’ll show you!

My red ink allergy a few months ago and the crap that peeled off my ankle everyday!

My tattoo the day before surgery. No dermatologist would touch it because laser treatments push the toxins into the body, with unknown side effects on the internal organs.
This was not a botched tattoo, it was a heavy metal allergy, most likely mercury!

After pics to post soon! Wish me luck!

Surgery was awful! I’ve been off my foot for 2 weeks and I’m stir crazy!
I had 30 stitches, 15 internal dissolvable and 15 external stitches that were removed today. The external stitches were removed today and it “over healed”. Anyway, more info later on my healing and recuperation.

Almost 2 months after surgery, it’s still red but so much better. I scrubbed it today with a rag but there is no sign of keloid scaring so that’s a plus!

Just a thought….

I come here all the time. It’s simply a place to think, ya know really think?
Why do I have to explain it? I write, I think, it’s who I am. I come here just to think. Ya know? I need to think with no one else around and simply talk to my innermost self.
Everything else in my life is compounds and equations and calculations, but when I think and write? It’s simply me and the words.
I need thoughts and diagrams and theories. I may say I’m open minded but I really need a situation in which to think. I need to roll it around in my mind like a green apple jolly rancher on your tongue, and consider the outcomes and observations. I need to taste what freedom and life is like in the midst of my own life. I need it like anyone who has ever craved any substance.
I just come here to think. And I need that.
I need to think
Think, live, love
Namaste!

Hello again!

I’m writing to reconnect with my bloggers! It’s been a crazy last few months and I am so ready for school to be out!! My oldest son is in Austin taking summer classes! I dropped by unannounced and found his apartment very clean except for his bedroom and bathroom. (Typical for him).

It’s why boys need moms to drop in periodically!
We have had recitals and end of year programs and a National honor society inductee as well as employees taking vacations and blah blah blah!
So I’m exhausted and what did I decide to do about it?
I’m adding more yoga classes to my routine. It will be good for me and I need to focus on overcoming the tedium that the end of the school year causes in a family. No they aren’t doing much in school but here it is summertime and what shall we do as parents?
I’m going to enjoy it and focus on my yoga classes!
Think! Live! Love!
Namaste!

Mothers

20140510-214714.jpg

My mother was the person that put dinner on the table and made sure we were where we needed to be on time. She was the butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker, and a bag of chips.
My mother wasn’t the stay at home type, she’s smart. Yes, that’s a horrible stereotype, but during my childhood, it was one or the other. Most mothers didn’t work full time or even part time, and how my siblings and I didn’t drive my mother crazy is beyond me! No computers, smart phones or even cable tv, and we still survived?
Happy Mother’s Day to all of you!
No mother is perfect but we all try the best we can. Offer more than you’ve ever received.
My mom is a hero to me and I can only wish my children feel the same!
Think, live, love

Love and life

Love is but a sandy foundation to build a life on. A life requires sediment; rock, trees, dirt and sweat.
It requires disagreements and fights, falling down and getting back up.
So many people have fallen so many times that getting back up just isn’t worth it. It’s how we deal with set backs, that teach others our strengths. Do you believe in yourself?
The only person that you can really disappoint is you! Don’t let others disappointment in you cloud your judgement. It’s not worth it!
Think! Live! Love!
Namaste!

Take care of yourself

20140302-230718.jpg

You can’t take care of anyone without taking care of yourself first. Remember that you are only as good as your best intent. Don’t be afraid to take care of yourself first. If you aren’t happy, how can you make anyone else happy? So find your joy and practice it. Whether it be yoga or writing or dancing or running, find your joy. Even if sitting and thinking, meditating if you will, enjoy the moment.
Think! Live! Love!
Namaste!
