I had major surgery August 15th. It was my 4th and final surgery in the span of two years. Two large hernias, the size of super grape fruits were removed and my abdominal walls were reconstructed for the final surgery. A surgical mesh is attached inside my abdominal muscles to keep the hernias from coming back again. For the longest, doctors had lost hope for me as far as being able to continue to have more children. Fortunately, the doctor that has been taking care of me found a way to make it happen. The pain is tolerable now, but it’s a good pain. Every sting, every sore, it all reminds me that I’m a step closer to a healthier me. I never realized how important the core of your body was until I was on bed rest for almost 4 weeks. Not being able to get out of bed, using a piss pan, crying out in pain for weeks because every inch of movement required you to use your core muscles. The worst moment of all was seeing my son so angry and sad because he knew his mother wasn’t her best. Not being able to hold him or play with him hurt me to my core. I was depressed for a long time. Anybody that knows me, knows that it’s so hard for me to keep still. I tried to use the bathroom on my own, didn’t even get two feet from the bed without pissing on myself. Tried to bathe myself and would end up crying in the shower because of how painful it was to bend over, to wash my back, every part of my body. I never want to go through that pain again. No matter what it takes this body of mine will get back strong and defined. Just have to take it easy and work my way up.
Now that all my procedures are finally completed, I can finish my last two semesters of school, I can go back to working, and most importantly, being the best mother I can be for my son. It’s funny how many thought I already graduated. It’s weird but, it’s a good thing that they think that. Shows that my grind was something else. :) I worked too hard to give up. So many people look up to me, even when I gave up on my self. They still continued to push and push, and push…
I appreciate every prayer, every visit, phone call, email, tweet, and FB post. You are truly in my heart forever. Back to work now…
I just wish they had a 24 hour library in the Hampton Roads area… It makes me sad

Instagramming the Beauty and Mayhem of Burning Man
Every year on the last Monday of August, tens of thousands of people make the pilgrimage to the Nevada desert for Burning Man, a week-long celebration of art, music and general mayhem.
Burning Man began as a small gathering in 1986 but has since grown to a spectacle of over 50,000 attendees. Despite its massive size, attendance is actually tightly regulated, and participants are selected from a much larger pool through a complicated, multi-round lottery.
For those unable to get ahold of a ticket, many “Burners” have documented their experience through Instagram, allowing the outside world a peek into Burning Man’s ephemeral Black Rock City.
I would love to attend this event! A must see in the future
What I know for sure us that pleasure is energy reciprocated. What you put out comes back. Your base level of pleasure is determined by how you view your whole life.

i love this!
This is how I feel sometimes lol
You tend to think a lot when you’re on the toilet. Especially with a good view out the window. I sit back and think about my life. I’m the type of person who will dance in the rain, have bon fires with artists and jam to the acoustic melodies of one another. I’ve performed in front of crowds, I’ve danced and traveled the country.. The passion for the arts runs through my blood. I’ll sit on the roof top with oil pastels and draw out my thoughts on canvas, singing songs of my time…. will drive out to a friends home in the middle of the night or day just to draw I love you with chalk in front of their door. Or leave a note with a ballon to say, “I was just thinking about you.” I’m down for the people. I’m down for the people I love. To be able to share those moments still is amazing to me…
