      Our trip to Oregon was the second vacation we have taken together since being married and it was FANTASTIC. It was my turn to show justin things about places he had never been. One of my favorite moments was when we saw the ocean for the first time and drove along the shoreline on a super crap road. He had a look of awe on his face that I never want to forget.

      We came home and school started up again. My last year as an undergrad. All was going well until my prosthetic eye started bothering me. BTW...I have a fake eye.

      After consulting with doctors we thought it might just be the cosmetic shell that needed attention. After seeing a few more doctors we realized that was not the case and I was going to have to have my entire implant removed. Christmas 2011 was depressing..I was snappy, and bitchy and rude to everyone. Justin stuck by me and let me beat him up verbally during the day, and physically at night as I cried. I didn't want to have surgery again, I was supposed to be done with all of that mess. My first surgery was when I was three days old and they held some serious consistency until about ten years ago when I had my eye fully removed and replaced with an implant.

      Now we come to present.

      I had my second full enucleation of the eye on January 17th. I am not ready to write about the experience in detail but I need to once again stress that my husband is amazing. He took care of me, babied me and even painted my toenails (under the supervision of the since returned Suzy) Suzy came to Portland with us for the surgery and was a godsend to my tired family as well. She quietly urged me to drink water, made sure I had my pills and was an extra set of hands and eyes to keep watch. I don't think I would have made it through the whole process without the love and support of my family and friends. They went above and beyond guys. You need to know that.

      Now I sit here, it is ..christ..three am. My eye is healing, as is the gash in my side from where they took the tissue to rebuild my implant. I am achy..and tired but wide awake at the same time. Must be the pain meds that I am weening myself off of. Two weeks guys, two weeks and I am up and around after major surgery. :D

      During all of this, I stayed in school and kept my position as the college newspaper's business manager. Crazy? Yes! Worth it..hell yes. I am not working atm due to surgery and I don't know what I would be doing with my days had I dropped out of school.

      So that is it. That is what has been up. 2012 started with MAJOR surgery and a high level of stress. It is going to be the hardest, most exhausting and most rewarding year of our marriage. We hope to have a baby, buy a house and continue to be happy.


      this turned into an "OMG GUYZ I LOVE MY HUSBAND LIKE WOAH" Entry and I am not about to apologize for it because there is nothing to apologize for.

      if you got this far dear reader you deserve a treat. Go find something you enjoy and partake!

      DR:TL DC

      My car burned
      I love my husband
      I graduated
      went on a trip
      went back to school
      had my left eye removed (again)
      Still love my husband.

      There ya go. Real entry.

      Sorry, but I've been slacking off on my watchlist.

      I'm having a hard time reading/typing about it, but congrats on a successful surgery.

      Things are going well! I'm just trying to get through the rest of the year so I can be DONE with school.... and move on to more school lol.

      It boggles my mind that my entire life is going to be based in the education system one way or the other. I must be mad.

      thanks! I was considering sesame ginger but spicy garlic soy should work nicely.

      I use a Wacom Intous 2 tablet with a 9" x 12" surface.

      but the all tablets are pretty much the same. The bigger the better though.

      but yeah, it does take a while to get used to them. because you are looking up at just the image and drawing when normally you are looking down at see you hand and image. I'd say I did at least a thousand practice drawings before showing anyone my skills with the tablet. Don't worry if you don't feel it working for you right away.

      I still draw better onto paper with pencil, but the tablet is a lot faster than scanning in and then cleaning up.
