MG made it home safely. After some beverages, ibuprofen and probably muscle relaxers, he went to sleep. I think his butt and body are sore after the long motorcycle ride to and from Tennessee. I think it might be a good thing we are finished having children, because he might be sterile now.
I went to watch a friend get a tattoo. A three hour tattoo. I left about 2.5 hours into it, so I haven't seen the finished artwork yet. I seriously considered getting my nose pierced, but for some reason, this place only pierces with rings and I want a very small stud. The guy that owns the tattoo studio, which is about a mile from my house, I think is in some kind of underworld militia. He scared me a little with his two handguns, a large knife and a taser all strapped to his belt. And it's so funny this tattoo parlor is in my little conservative, somewhat uptight, suburb. I love that he's there and keeps these "oh my, a tattoo parlor HERE?" types all revved up. Did you know I have a tattoo? Here it is.
It's the Breast Cancer Circle of Awareness and I got it after I walked my first Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in 2005. It's a 60 mile, 3 day walk. I went on to walk again 2006. Over the two walks, me and my team members raised over $40,000 for the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
After the tattoo
ing adventure, I headed off to dinner with friends and then back to one of the friend's house for a girls only sleepover and movie night. We were up until almost 4 in the morning. Don't get all excited, though, there was nothing that would have interested any Girls Gone Wild video types.
I opened my kids college savings account information today. They each officially have less money in them than we have contributed. I understand the whole concept of dollar cost averaging and all, but one of my kids only has about six years to recover from these losses so the economy better get a move on turning around.
I colored my hair yesterday and, as I have become accustomed to over the years, you don't always get what you imagined or hoped for. I will give this crazy red shade a few days to calm down. If that doesn't happen, onto plan B which will be to try to fix it without frying my hair off my head.
I am so BUMMED I did not know more about the BlogHer convention when it first started being advertised and registrations accepted. Maybe next year. Some of my favorite bloggers will be there and I would love to meet them!
the BlogFrog is going to be coming out with a cool new website this week. Check it out later this week or early next!
