Here I am

Saturday, December 1, 2007

Yeah, yeah, so I've been a bad blogger. Many of you noticed that I made the blog private for a couple days, and I won't lie, I was very surprised and flattered by the outpouring of concern. I'm fine, but I was in a slump, and I guess it made me feel better to think that the blog was locked up and people weren't checking it for new posts. I guess I thought no one would notice? Ha! You all definitely noticed. So thank you. :)

Last night I got the next part of my sleeve done and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out. It's beautiful and I need to give a plug to Amanda Cancilla at Artistic Skin Designs (that's the one on US 31 for you Indy peeps, if you need any ink done, I highly recommend her). She did a fabulous job and it's exactly what I wanted.

I go back at the end of this month for the third session, a pink and purple koi on the inside of my arm. It'll be rounded out with some swirly sparkly water around the koi, bee, clovers and roots of the tree, and thunder clouds up behind and around the branches. Squee! (Yes, I just squeed. This is squee-worthy.)

Today I've been feeling like utter poo on a stick, and I think I might be coming down with mastitis. Who the hell gets mastitis after almost 9 months of breastfeeding? Apparently I do. At first I thought it was just my adrenaline crashing after the tattoo but today I've had body aches, a headache and dizziness all day, and my right boob is firm and tender. I get nauseous when I touch it. Joy.

DH was the best husband ever and let me take a nap, which ended up being four hours long. Yes, he is a saint. I've got a heating pad on the boobie right now so please please keep me in your thoughts that I can kick this quickly so DH won't have to take any time off work.

bee and shamrocks = <3

Yes, I noticed, too!! I was saddened, but glad that I can read it again!! :)

I LOVE your bee!! He would go beautifully next to my butterfly. I love life-like insect tattoos!!

I'll be thinking about you and your boob. Wait....hoping for a quick recovery(or non-existant illness). ;)

I had a similar condition after breastfeeding for nearly a year. It lasted about a day or two and was like a horrible cold with body ache and everything. You're already doing the heating pad and the massage; hot showers help too.

Hope you're feeling better by the time you read the comment...

That is a great Tat. My mom is wanting me to get on with her but I don't think I want the guy she has in mind to do it. I will have to tell her about your artist.
