Well, I did it again...I got my ears peirced! I first had them done when I was about 13. Everything went great, and I was enjoying feeling pretty with earings. Then I went to florida, was purchased some cheap earings (even thought I thought they were wonderful). They were wonderful since they came from my aunt, but they were not very good for my ears. Those earings, combined with salt water added up to very infected ears. I didn't know this until a week ago. I only knew that ever since that trip I had trouble with my ears, until last year when I gave up wearing earings because I couldn't stand the feeling of repeircing my ears every time I tried to put them in. So for a year I went without until I was desperate to feel fiminine again. Having short hair, and just having had a baby, I was searching for things to make me feel like a woman. So I tried out the most modern clip-ons that I could find. I enjoyed those for awhile, until I got tired of the small collection from which to choose. So last Friday, I decided to ask if there was a chance I could get my ears repeirced without there being a problem. That is when I found out that the salt water probably started to erode the cheap earing causing an infection in my ear. So with a 14 karat gold earing, it would probably work. So I decided to take the plunge. I don't think I have been that nervous since I had a baby! What was making me the most nervous was know how much I was going to spend, when it might not work. But Joel was all for it, and the odds were good, so I did it. So far so good. I am a week into it, and they are still a little sore, but I read they could be up to 2 or 3 weeks. Anyway...I feel pretty, and so I am enjoying this while it lasts (hopefully that will be a long time).

YAY! I repierced my second hole last year and almost DIED. I pierced it myself and it was awful. I still have never taken those earrings out. I'm afraid they'll grow back in and I'll have to do it again. :) I looove earrings. Congrats!

Maybe I need to try that. My ears got infected as soon as I got them pierced and I have not been able to wear earrings since. I try once in a while and my ears always bug me and turn red as apples. I've heard I should try pure gold too, but I haven't done it. Do you have to buy all gold earrings from now on, or once your ears heal up, will you be able to wear other earrings as well? Keep me posted.
