Feathered friends

You know when you're dead set on something but then are thrown obstacles on your path? It's what's happening in my life right now. I was so sure of myself and positive I knew what I wanted but then realized I had no support whatsoever. Which makes it difficult but not impossible. However, when you try to find the best option, everything seems to be set against you. Then I wonder. Is this the right path? Or am I thrown these obstacles to change course? It's so confusing.

Then I start to reconsider all the options I threw away in the begging and thinking maybe they're not so bad. But then again these options were the reason I started to look for an alternative path to begin with. Why can't things just be simple? Why does every major thing in my life have to be difficult?

And no, it's not worth it in the end. I usually give up before then because if it's not easy, then it's not meant to be, right? When it's meant to be, everything falls into place. When it's meant to be, then everything lines up, the stars, the people, the schedule, the money and you make it happen. Or am I naive? Too optimistic? Or just plain misguided on how to live a life? I mean, I'm no teenage here. I should have this shit figured out by now.

Happy Birthday to ME! & Mermaids

Three different styles of mermaids. Above one even has glitter in her hair. Ariel below is obviously in Tim Burton style.

It's my birthday today. :) I'm getting old.

Gnomes moley

This is January's moley journal for Ibus and her theme on fantasy. I made these gnomes as she likes woodsy scenes more than other. I skipped showing you the December one as it's a particular theme that I'll show in later months.

Randomness:
  1. my pooch Karma has an ear infection and I'm being a bad owner and keep forgetting to give her medicine
  2. our car died again. Just before I had to go to my yoga class. So, no yoga for me this week.
  3. the neighbors' kids came over the other day and my kid had a blast playing with them. They are older, 8 and 10, but they played so nicely with him.  
  4. my mom made dairy-free cake for my kid's birthday. Wanna guess what the filling was made out of? Avocados and chocolate. You'd never guessed it. It was delicious.
  5. I'm getting a cover up for my tattoo. I already scheduled the appointment but it's in 4 months. I don't regret my tattoo, it's just that I feel it represents something different now than it did back when I got it and I don't want to be associated with that group.
  6. I e-mailed 11 tattoo artists about the cover up and the design I want for it and half of them said it cannot be done with the design I have in mind and the other half said no problem. What's the catch here? They're all well established artists and most of them pick up awards in tattoo conventions, so I don't understand how two artists of the same caliber give me different answers.

Foxy's 2nd Birthday

It was my kid's 2nd birthday yesterday! :) And of course I had to put a fox on this blog post as it is his spirit animal.

We also had a professional photo session on Wednesday and check out this baby onesie I had someone make for this special occasion.
We let him run around which was fun for a while but then it got out of hand and he had a couple of hissy fits. I must say this years photo shoot was a lot more challenging than last years. I think the reason for it was also his dad's energy because I know kids pick up on this stuff. But the photographer said she got some great shots and I'll have to wait for a week or so to see the results.
