Snow?


Surprise! We woke up to snow today! Not a lot, in fact just a dusting, but that didn't stop the kids from being super excited.

V and A decided to get dressed and go out and play in it. R decided to make snacks instead. This consisted of stale chocolate grahams dipped in melted chocolate and marshmallows. They were a hit with kids of course. My kitchen is a gooey chocolate mess though.


So yesterday I went to the tattoo parlor to get yet another tattoo. I have a bunch..or a few depending on who you are comparing me to, ha ha. So I'm in a rush to get there..traffic..running late. I HATE being late. I suppose I was a bit worked up. Anyway I get in the seat and my very kind artist starts to do the tattoo. Now know that I have sat through a 4 hour tattoo once. It wasn't fun, but I survived. So when 2 minutes in to this tattoo I feel a little weird, it was surprising. I asked if I could recline the chair and that is the last thing I remember until I begin to wake up. Anyone who has passed out knows how horrible it is. Your very disoriented waking up, and very sweaty and confused. So I open my eyes and she is holding my legs in the air, asking me if I'm o.k I say yes and she asks if I ate any food today. HMMM not enough I guess. I felt really bad for fainting and she kept saying it was o.k and was really nice. She even got me a sucker :) I felt better five minutes later and she finished in a little over a hour. I did feel weird all day though. YUCK So note to self: eat a HUGE meal before going under the needle. I never want that to happen again. I admit too, I'm a teeny big "gun shy" now of going back in a few months to get it finished.. I'm sure I will though.

Here is a picture of the peacock. Its going to be the bottom border of my 3/4 "sleeve" ( there is a bit of ink and blood on it still)

Oh my gosh, how scary! I'm glad you're OK. When do we get to see pics of the new tat?

I passed out in the middle of the mall once at a blood donation clinic. I know how awful it is to wake up in a not familiar place!

The tattoo looks sooo beautiful though! I love it!!
