Random Friday

I’m still computer-less.

Is it the weekend yet?

My son has just a couple more days left before he returns to school.

I’ve been busy running all sorts of errands with him.

For example, I spent a fairly big chunk of yesterday getting more RAM added to his computer.

The duties of being a mom are endless and never ending.


Why does my son have a better computer than I do?

I have computer envy.  Especially since I don’t even HAVE a computer right now.

Would you have plastic surgery to correct whatever you dislike most about your body if it were free?

For instance, if you hated your nose and someone “gave” you a free nose job would you do it?

(The body part doesn’t matter. It could be boobs, butt, liposuction on your thighs, an arm lift for your bat wings, etc.)

I know a lot of people SAY they would never have plastic surgery, but I’m wondering if they had a great surgeon and didn’t have to worry about cost ….?

I’ve thought, ever since I had my third kid, I would like to have a tummy tuck.

I’ve got a pooch of stretched out skin that never went back to normal post babies.

Stretched out skin doesn’t respond to exercise, by the way.

It just stays as a permanent baby bulge.

I guess it isn’t terrible.

I thought it was, but then I looked at some plastic surgery “before” photos and realized it could be a lot worse.

If you want to feel good about your body, just take a look at the “before” photos on plastic surgery websites.

But still, there’s a part of me that thinks if I’m ever going to “do” anything about it – I should do it now before I get any older.

I wish I’d had a tummy tuck years ago, actually.

But, with the car accident, I’ve had bigger priorities than how I look.

One of my friends had a tummy tuck recently.

She looks great.

It’s making me think about going in for a consultation.

Of course, if I do decide to make an appointment, I’ll tell you all about it.

I imagine it’s pretty humiliating to share your worst body part at a consultation?

    I know this is horrible, but sometimes when I feel ugly because of my weight, I go look at the photos of a friend on Facebook. She’s a wonderful person, but she is the very definition of morbidly, dangerously obese. She needs a walker to get around, is on oxygen and is only 52 years old.

    As for plastic surgery, I’ve been pondering a Lifestyle Lift more and more lately – something I never thought I’d ever consider. How age changes us.

      And now I need to google Lifestyle Lift and find out what that is.
      Perhaps they should just invent a Magic Wand?

    Agree with Jan! We begin to sing a different tune as we get older!

      I’ve never been anti-plastic surgery.
      I’m just anti-plastic people.
      So many people (particularly here in OC) go so overboard with it.

    The only thing I think I would consider is some kind of skin treatment. I hate all the acne scarring on my face and would love if it could somehow be smoothed out.

      I bet there are ways to do that.
      It seems like they can do almost anything these days ….

    I had three C-sections and a tummy tuck was a must since the scars developed keloids and they were so painful I had trouble wearing any kind of pants. I LOVE it and have never regretted having it done. It’s been twenty some years and my tummy still looks good despite some weight gain. Go for it!!

    I have a colleague in another state that has had all kinds of plastic surgery including botox on her face. She is in her 50s and from behind she looks great. But when she turns around she has the boobs of a porn-star, wears more make-up than Gene Simmons of KISS and her face doesn’t move when she smiles. No crinkles around her eyes or her mouth. Her forehead doesn’t even move. She also has hair that is way too long for a 50 year old that is bleached really blonde. She looks extremely fake and creepy from the front side.

      There are a lot of people (men and women) in Orange County exactly like that.
      I think people get carried away.
      Instead of fixing one thing about themselves they try to recreate their entire being –
      Or, become decades younger.
      I agree, it looks terrible when people do that.

    I leaned forward over a mirror to look at my face once and got a horrible shock. I don’t plan to do that anymore. 😀

    If surgery were free and great results were guaranteed, I would try it. It’s risky though, and I tend to scar easily.
