Tattoo for Two

Hi Folks,

I know some may think I am crazy already, but sometimes you just have to "Seize the Day", you know take the opportunity or as they say in Latin "Carpe Diem".

In fact did you know that "Carpe Diem" was my high school motto. It was it was on my school crest. If you don't believe me have a look at this;

Where did I get that picture you might ask, the answer is Krystal. She took a picture of my arm.

That's right I got a tattoo. However I was not alone, Krystal also has a tattoo, 2 actually as you can see.

If you would like to know if it hurts, that depends. For me, no problem for Krystal it stung and burned, I hear some people actually cry. Really it did not hurt at all, just like a prolonged scratch.

Well there you have it. Tattoos for the 2 of us. In case you are wondering, NO Kim did not get one.

For the record, laundry and crayons do not mix. When I woke up this morning, Krystal met me with the words "We have a problem". I washed a load of Becca's clothes yesterday including most of her new summer clothes we recent bought. When Krystal opened the dryer this morning, it was purple inside and all of Becca's clothes have purple marks with a little yellow thrown in for good measure.

Krystal kindly went on the internet to find out what to do (what did people do before google?) I sprayed everything with Shout and washed in hot water. Most of the stains did come out. I sprayed the remaining stains and am rewashing them. Hopefully that will get the remainer out. If anyone needs to know, Crayola's website has a section on how to get crayons out of various things.

She also found a site that said to put wet towels in your dryer and turn in on to get the color out of the dryer. That did not work so I guess I am going to have to try and scrub it out. Ahhh...the fun just never ends.
