…. and purple! The 12 YR old was able to alter his colour on this app she has on her iPod. The results were hilarious and reminds me of those rabbit’s feet back in the day that came dyed in many different colours. I had an orange and a purple one I carried my keys on as a keychain.
As well, my hubby saw me tanning and snarked, “Working on your skin cancer again?” and I replied, “You have to die from something, right?” and I have a headache so I think I got too much sun again and it’s hard to believe( as well as sad and I don’t want to even think about it) that summer’s already HALF OVER! I’m also pissed off what the Liberals have done to this province turning it from a “Have” province into a “Have Not” province and now it’s almost like a Banana Republic and the economy’s so bad now too and the Dollar’s so low ( now a paltry 76 cents to the USD) that pretty soon I bet even the Peso will be worth more!
I’m also mad to hear a city councillor was reported and will be investigated for “violating the Code of Conduct” as he posted on Twitter that he doesn’t believe in same-sex “marriage” as it goes against his Christian beliefs and now they say he was ‘discriminating” and it forbids “imposing” your personal, religious, or moral beliefs on others….so now you’re NOT even allowed to express your own personal views?You’re censored? What ever happened to freedom of speech and freedom of expression?We live in a Police State! This country is just becoming more and more Fascist all the time it’s not funny, and I was sickened as well the abortion pill(which causes a chemical abortion) has been approved by the gov’t and will now be available here, making it even easier to kill the preborn baby, and there’s hardly ANY immorality and sin that this country HASN’T been legalized now(just marijuana and euthanasia left but they’re working on it)and it makes me wonder if those out of control wildfires may even be God’s way of punishing this country for it’s disobedience and sin?
We’re having a heatwave! Yesterday was the hottest day so far and it was so humid and the air was so “thick” that it was hard to breathe yet there I was, outside tanning for 90 min. and then in the pool for 2 1/2 HRS so I got alot of sun. I can’t get my tattoo wet for 2 weeks until it dries up, scabs, and heals so I covered it up with a plastic bag in the pool and just floated around on the “ass donut” and kept my foot out of the water so I could still cool off. Well, whatever works, right?
I also ran out of caffeine-free diet Pepsi( or at least I thought I did; it turned out there were a few hidden) as with the heat you drink more plus my medications make me dehydrate quickly as well so I needed more but my mother and hubby weren’t too concerned and said it can wait since it’s just something for me it’s not important and it doesn’t matter and they don’t care if I end up dehydrated,anyway. The 8 YR old also tried to drown the 14 YR old in the pool by holding her head under water but of course my mother even excused THAT,too,as NOTHING’S *ever* HIS fault( always someone else’s) and she even blamed the 14 YR old for being in the shallow end and not the deep end even though he’d asked her to play with him!
Here is my new hippo tattoo, with the bandage removed.It still stings at times and now it also feels tight and itches as it heals and my flip-flops rub on it and it hurts so I hobble along with my foot half hanging out of my shoe and it’s still swollen as well. I also had baaaad stomach pain back again so it’s either my ulcer or my liver acting up again but it felt like I got kicked in the stomach area by a horse,and the 14 YR old and her friend were “cat called” by a man who went by in a truck; some pedophile, which is creepy and gross,(I’ve NEVER been “cat called” but ugly girls never are) and the 12 YR old has such “attitude” lately and she’s distanced herself from me and we’re no longer as close like we used to be as a result but if I AM going to die before I’m 50 like I’ve always thought it will work out better this way I guess as she won’t miss me as much, and my mother wants to go on another Caribbean cruise in 2 YRS as well( although I don’t know where she’s going to find the $$$) and bring the 12 and 14 YR olds this time so if I surprise myself and AM still alive by then I’ll be 50 and it can be for my 50th birthday,too!
I got the hippo tattoo I wanted on the top of my foot! I went to the tattoo place as I can’t wait around forever for my brother-in-law to do it( and anyone who knows me knows that waiting isn’t one of my strong points, ha,ha) A tattoo gun is pictured here for those of you who have no idea what one looks like. This is something like my 12th or 13 th tattoo; I don’t know; I’ve lost count, but it was definitely one of the most painful, as the upper foot has no “meat”, just skin and bone and some areas were more tender than others and I had to do my deep breathing like in labour and was dizzy from the pain and winced. My mother asked if they give you any “freezing” for the pain and I just laughed. I told her you just suck it up. Can you imagine some biker getting a tattoo and asking,”Can I have some freezing, man?” I’ve birthed 11 kids, had several surgeries, gallstones,and endured relentless migraines, so I think I can handle a tattoo without “freezing.”
It took 2 HRS in total and cost 200$, twice what I had expected so it’s good I brought extra $$$! Part of my foot just went numb after awhile it hurt so much and it’s really swollen. I have to wear this bandage for 24 HRS and even for a few HRS later it still hurt like f*ck. Now it still stings at times and at times I also get these “shooting” nerve pains. While I was getting it done sometimes the needle would hit a nerve as well and it would twitch and they had a reclining chair like in the dentist’s office and the guy said he’s been doing tattoos for 12 YRS.
This is the tattoo I had done and the picture I brought in only he reversed the orange and yellow as he said yellow really fades so he didn’t want to have it as a dominant colour so he made more orange with just a touch of yellow.I also had him add 2 top teeth on the hippo as on the one here they forgot them for some reason and it really bothered me. My hubby dropped me off but wasn’t able to pick me up and said I had to wait 2 1/2 HRS for him as he had a phone call for work so I took a taxi home and the cabbie saw my bandage and noticed me limping and asked me why did I get a tattoo if it hurt. The kids ask what getting one feels like and the best way to describe the feeling would be like a combination of being cut with an X-acto knife and keep getting stung over and over by bees combined.Sometimes it also stings like how it feels when you fall off your bike and skin your knee and get road rash.
As well, the hose in our washing machine is leaking and we had a flood of water all over the floor and replacing it wasn’t an easy thing to find either and my hubby had to look all over for it, in several stores and even go to another town before he finally found it….and then after all that THAT hose was leaking,TOO! Doesn’t it figure? Just OUR “luck!”
My hubby and I went to Tim Horton’s and I sat down to save the seats and he went to get the stuff. He got me a Chocolate Chill (pictured here) like what I had in Toronto only what he brought me back was completely different: it was only half full, had PINK stuff in it and never had the cream, and I grumbled, “It’s NOT like the one I had in the city! What do you expect though from the dumb rednecks in a hick-town like here! Everything is always half-assed!” so he went back to complain and exchange it ,meanwhile a crazy lady behind me began to sing Tom Petty’s “Don’t Do Me Like That” and an angry Tim Horton’s worker marched over to me( thinking it was me) yelling that they’ll no longer be serving me there anymore and I said, “Why? What did *I* do? It wasn’t me!” and I looked out the window and saw this huge red fox and thought to myself, “At least now I know what to do my blog about today!”
and so I did.
Except none of it ever really happened…..it was all just a dream, but at the time it seemed so real.
As well, it’s going to be in the 30 C temp range again all this week; we’ve having a heatwave, and with the humidex feeling like the 40’s and we even have a heat warning, and we’re in the pool every day again, 2 HRS at a time, several times a day and air conditioning is also our best friend.
