Does it have to be good?

Posting every day. Sounded so easy. Yesterday.

Nothing to really talk about - the kids won't go to bed...I would though!

Please!

Let me!

OK tomorrow is Haiku Friday and I swear it will be good!!

NaBloPoMo

Or something.

I signed up for the blog-everyday-for-a-month thing. I know Marvin has been bummed that I have not been blogging much (and I wonder what he thinks about the ink?) And blogging is good for me...so here we are, back again.

I feel like I am looking for something. I don't feel like anything is missing, but I feel like I am on a quest. I am sure I will figure out more. Eventually.

Work is good - so incredibly busy I can't even tell you. But I definitely feel like I am in the right place for right now.

B is travelling a lot, which is fine. I am just jealous because he is in Toronto and Puerto Rico and Chicago and I go to...Raleigh...yippie!

I have new thoughts on the war. Which needs to end. Before more 20 year old boys are shot and stitched up and sent back into a plane and made to jump.

I have a new rule about Halloween - if you are old enough to ogle the MILF giving out the candy you are too old to trick-or-treat. And if you must lick your lips, please do it when she is not looking.

Corollary - If your 13 year old daughter is going trick-or-treating, please make sure she does not look like a hooker.

And note to Meghan: You will, someday, somehow, wear that Dora costume. Seriously.

Non-Haiku Monday


I don't f-ing believe it....

I did it!
I have secretly wanted a tat for years and I never knew what or where and what if my parents find out and blah blah blah.

Well.

Sunday I decided it was ON so I did it! I got a beautiful dragonfly on my right shoulder (Ink by Wayne at Ink Link) (did a great job) (very sweet and talented) (go see him and say I sent you).

I feel so cool - even more than when I got my piercings because this is permanent - for the rest of my life when I see my shoulder I will remember October 29, 2006. Ink day, Freedom day. Independence from worrying so much about what everyone else thinks. Opportunity to be who I really want to be and do things that really matter to me and make me who I am.

A little bit of dreamy, watery colored ink can't change who I am. But it is a permanent reminder not to lose this magic I feel in my life right now...this beautiful certainty and unshakable confidence that I have. It has been hard won, and I love that it is now with me forever.

Thanks, Wayne. I'm sure I am not the only one, but for me, this is more than just a tat! :)
