Just two….that’s all.
I really believe life is for living…so why not go thru with it.
What you see above is my nose….with it’s new little friend..the diamond stud.
When i called the tatoo parlor to make the appointment…the girls told me that i won’t be
able to swim for a few weeks…and NOT to get it wet.
No problem i told her….we only had a few more days left on Kauai before we were headed home…
so i should TOTALLY be able to follow the rules.
I showed up for my appointment….kids in tow.
I almost thought of letting them come inside with me….but i could just see it now….
they watch….then in two years….Lola comes home from school with her belly button pierced….
because she showed her friend how to do it.
I could foresee the entire scenario folding out in front of me.
So….instead i left them in the car with the windows rolled up…and made them
promise not to drive the car away.
The actual piercing was very quick.
I vomited only twice before it was over…and cried like a baby.
The piercer…..Rebecca…..told me to grow up.
Alright…i didn’t really vomit…but i felt like it….
and i didn’t really cry even though i WANTED to.
It was not as bad as i thought.
quick…..and just a little pinch.
I think now….after a few days…is worse.
I feel like i have a booger inside my nose that i can
So….it’s done….and i am happy.
Now i just get to surprise bryan with it when i show up at home tomorrow.
I love a good surprise!
Anyhoo….after the piercing…we headed to the beach
this time my kids wanted to rope swing into a river that was close by.
I was DARED to rope swing myself.
I take Dares very seriously.
Then they double dog dared me.
So i thought to myself….why the heck not.
The only problem was…..
i realized half way out that i must have gained some weight this trip.
I was a little heavier then i thought….
actually a LOT heavier then i thought….
because instead of swinging straight out and back like i had thought i would….
i slid right down the rope into the water.
IT WAS NOT PRETTY
IT WAS NOT GRACEFUL
I HAVE ROPE BURNS NOW
Luckily…..Mason thought to grab the camera and get it on film.
Thanks to him….i can look back and see when i weighed more than a small elephant.
and then when i was heaving myself out of the water…
did i realize that i was NOT SUPPOSED TO GET MY NOSE WET.
Rope burns and a wet nose…which might get infected…possibly get a staph infection…
and have to be amputated…right along with my hands because there is no skin left.
I may be a noseless…handless girl….
but i’ll have memories to last a lifetime.
