I just wanted to say thank you for letting me have my mini melt down. :) One thing I noticed is that some of you might need to vent also. Maybe I need to start a Venting with Valarie Day. You know, don't mention any names, and don't gossip, or be ugly about anyone. Just a place to maybe scream or let of some steam. I don't know that probably would not work, even though I know I felt a little better after doing it.
If you need to vent I will be there for you, but if you tend to be acting ugly in your venting I am gonna send you to someone else to vent to. :) (Right now I want to vent about my computer running extremely slow!)
Now onto something that happened the other day, that I have been needing to blog about. This is gonna cause a lot of mixed feelings around here.
It all happened on July 8, 2008. The day she became an "Adult" (please take note that it is in quotations. I am being very sarcastic about that).
It was a lovely day, just beautiful outside. Warm, but not to hot, a slight breeze in the air, with striking blue skies.
All she could think about when she woke up that morning was this one particular thing. She had been wanting this for awhile, I would not let her do it. Now that she was 18 the time had come. The time when she could sign her own papers to get the dreaded........NOSE PIERCING!!!!!!
Here she is filling out her own paperwork. (I would not sign for her to get this done, but I did want to be there when she did it. Hey, I need stuff to blog about.) :)
She is so grown up, don't ya think? (again sarcasm)
Here she is in the chair....
Here she is looking a little nervous.......
Please note before going to the next pictures, this is not for the weak of stomach.
If you do not like needles, pain, and torture devices do not go any further!
YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!!!
First they prepare the area with something, I don't really remember what they put here, hopefully some antiseptic of some sort to ward of infection!
What's wrong Jess? It looks like your going to the dentist. I guess they put the bib on you in case you were to bleed. :)
Here we go... we take the pincher things and clamp the side of your nose......
Then we pull the heck out of your nose and stick about a 3 inch needle into the prepared spot..... Can I just say Oooowwwww!!! right here....
Please note that I spared you all the one picture Jessie said I should have gotten. The needle actually sticking thru her nose. I was to horrified to snap the picture. I was in shock actually.
"Hey its not that bad I really didn't feel anything!"
So here it is like 5 minutes later. The ink was still on there and everything so it doesn't look as good as it could I guess.
Here she is Ms. I am 18 now,and I got my nose pierced, and I signed for it my self.
(say that like you are singing the Ms. America thing)
Jessie, I love you very much! I only hope that one day when you decide that you don't want that in your nose anymore, that the hole will grow up. :)
Love your Mother xoxoxox
