Writers Workshop

Once again I found something from Mama Kat's Writers Workshop that tickled my fancy. Go check out her blog and all the great entries.

Is plastic surgery an option? Without being vulgar, write about the body part still attached to you that you would most like to dis-attach and replace with a better one.

During our Easter Party my mother turned to me and said, "What did you do to your face?" This is a question I have been asked several times in the last month. I emailed my much older sister to tell her the story and to see if she knew any "good" Doctors. She is getting older and couldn't remember the doctors name. Could be the first sign of Dementia.

When I was a teenager I hardly ever had a blemish on my face. Once in a while I would get a zit right in the middle of my forehead. Nothing hideous or gross, just a zit. Below is evidence of my blemish free complexion. I was lucky. I don't think I ever washed my face with Noxzema like a good 70's girls would have done.


Back to my mothers comment. I had a woman at church ask me if my hubby had been hitting me, (Which DID NOT sit well with him. He now thinks everyone thinks he beats me! Poor guy. And he really is just the sweetest thing ever!), then a guy at work I hadn't seen for about six months walked in a few weeks ago and said, "What's that thing on your face?" then last night at dinner, after my mother sat down at the table, my sister (who really is a smart alec!) said to me (In a very loud voice) "What did you do to your face?" Then she laughed, an evil laugh. My mother, who is sitting next to me, wheels around, stares at my face and says the very same thing. The same thing as before. I gave my sister an eye roll. If she had been closer I would have kicked her. HARD.

I have never thought of having plastic surgery. I am pretty much OK with my sagging parts. And I have had three C-sections already. I am not interested in surgery. But lately I have been thinking more about going "under the knife" or at least having a chemical peel or burning this thing off my face.

Here is the HIDEOUS mark on my face that my mother keeps mentioning. This is covered with concealer and makeup! I am looking for a Dermatologist in Salt Lake County. Anybody know any good ones? My sister is keeping hers a secret!

What's that on your face?

Tara said...

Wow. If that's the biggest of your worries, you are looking pretty dang good! I, unfortunately, still break out all the time. It's really annoying. Justin says it keeps me looking "youthful." :)
I don't have a good dermatologist, but I do have one I DON'T like (Carla can tell you). She goes to a new dermatologist now, you should ask her what she thinks.

Marrdy, you're soooo pretty!

...and I don't know of any dermatologists. That one guy I went to couldn't figure out what was wrong with the skin on my fingers. Dummy! :P

Aubrey said...

Gotta love mothers! LOL

Auntie MC said...

Actually, I think your teenage face was very pretty and is even more pretty now. Mother's can be so gentle at times ya think? I LOVE your Lady Godiva teenage curls too.

But, I must ask.......WHAT'S THAT ON YOUR FACE? It's a beauty mark about to be born!!!

I think you're still hot :)

I dont have a good dermatologist but I have a great plastic surgeon. I know my surgeon, Trent Jones, has a partner who only does face work including non-surgery skin resurfacing and other fun stuff. Sorry, I don't remeber his name. He is in Murry behind the Fashion place mall next to the Heart and Lung institute.

I say we all just go in for some Midro-dermabrarion. That sounds like fun!

Apparently I can't spell today, sorry about that last post :)

My Dear Marrdy,
I have the same thing on my left cheek. Wonder if it was something we ate from the playground in the 4th grade? Really I'm afraid that mine is an age spot! It gets darker in the summer when I'm out in the sun more. But on me it just looks like a giant freckle convention!
Love ya just the way you are!
HUGS!

I'm so sorry! It doesn't seem that noticeable to me...but maybe it's the picture.

LOVE your high school picture too...it's gorgeous!

I never took good care of my skin and was always lucky to have clear skin. Now that I'm grown up, all of a sudden I have stupid zits...what's up with that?

If you do have a chemical peel, remember the word "chemical". If it isn't done right or your skin reacts negatively to it you will have burns to worry about. I tanned in the summers in the 80's and have sun spots. I'm keeping them as opposed to chemicals. I have a friend who didn't fair to well. There are other things that a dermatologist can do that is not chemical but the results don't last as long.

If you haven't seen a recent picture of the 3 youngest to see how close beth and jedera look, i posted one. specially for you!!!

Is that a sun spot? I have a fair complexion, and spots larger than my voluminous amount of freckles sometimes show up, but then go away just as quickly. And I love your retro photo. What beautiful red hair (or is it strawberry blonde?) you have! BTW, please don't forget Sx3 today. We're celebrating Cinco de Mayo with a Tex-Mex cookbook giveaway!

Heck....since you're gorgeous I'm pretty sure I'd be thrilled if that was my only complaint! I have an age spot that appeared on my check about 6 months ago...everyone keeps telling me "you have something on your face" they think it's a spot of dirt and I need to wipe it off. If only.......

Marrdy: I can't imagine you being more perfect than you already are! Love the photo...what a charming young woman! PS: I've been tardy in communicating with you about your POPrs winnings. Please contact me at veggiemom@poprs.com Thanks!
