But none of those are the case right now. You see, life doesn’t always go as planned and sometimes you just have to roll with the punches. Even if that means you look like you’ve actually been punched.
Today started out beautifully. It was sunny, winds were low, and I had an appointment at 6:00 pm to get my permanent eyeliner done. Yes, that’s right. Needles to my eyes so that I will NEVER have to be without eyeliner again. If you know me at all, you know that being without makeup, at any given time, is not acceptable. I was going to pay to make sure this would never happen again. It’s how I roll.
But the forces worked against me today. The winds picked up, it got cold, AND the stupid stye that I thought would relieve itself before my appointment that I made 3 weeks in advance just hung on and refused to reveal its ugly head and move on.
*UGLY PICTURE ALERT*
Yup, that stye indeed took over. I have a lump on the inside and outside of my eye. My lid is sagging like there’s no tomorrow (seriously, like I’m 100 and there’s no tomorrow). And the freaking thing HURTS. LIKE. HELL!
I’ve tried all of the home remedies. Hot packs and compresses. Tea bags. Baby shampoo in my eye…thank you very much. Nothing is making this stupid beast go away.
It’s not pretty, it’s painful, and I’m not happy.
And horror of all horrors, I had to call to cancel my appointment today. No permanent liner for me. Sad face!
I want this beast to move along. Next victim please. Seriously would not wish this discomfort on my worst enemy. Want to know who my worst enemy is? Ask my friends, they know. I won’t go in to that here.
But I give. I’ve booked an appointment with an eye doctor tomorrow afternoon. This should be fun since I have to bring both of the babies. It’ll be fine (in my head). I’m hoping he can fix this thing and let me get back to normal.
And I’m hoping it will get warm soon, and that the winds will stop, and most importantly (because I’m all shallow and stuff) that I’ll be able to reschedule my permanent liner in the next few weeks.
Bring on the permanent makeup. This momma needs a break. Now what about those lashes? Once I heal, the possibilities are endless!
