Family Tree....

Back from a weekend of debauchery. I was thrilled to make like I'm ACTUALLY 23 again. Lovely, relaxing, smooth and just felt right. We did dinner and cocktails and wandered about aimlessly (like we NEVER do). I did laps in a pool by myself without having to worry about which kid might slip and fall on the concrete or dive into the pool without swimmies. Then I took my vampire romance novel and read in the jacuzzi tub. And went to bed at 12 and woke up at 3 (that's the afternoon people... the AFTERNOON!!! :-O ) Then came the tattoos....

Mine, (kinda fuzzy picture sorry), is my "family tree". Husband on top, the two older ones on each side and Rowen on the bottom. If there are any more oopsie-kids, we'll have to just add below Rowen I guess. I drew the names myself, and then the tree is a 12th century Celtic engraving of the tree of immortality and love.

LOVE IT.
Now Tim's tat. The square one was already there... he added the celtic dragon circle last night. A little play on the infinity snake (not sure that's the technical term but I'm sure you all know what I'm talking about). I love the dragon heads.

All in all a good time. I am hungover and sleepy, although I got more sleep this weekend than I do in a normal week.

Back to the daily grind.... SIIIIIiiiiigh........

I appreciate all of the happiness I've gotten about me getting away. I feel like you all are as happy for my little break as I was. That makes me feel all mushy inside.

Oh and a special shout-out to my Momma who corralled the monsters (including and especially Lushifer [that's Luke to you], owch. SO glad I wasn't here this weekend. You earn the granny medal of endurance).

Now it's time for me to eat as much as possible before I start back on the diet-wagon tomorrow morning. :P

(And, P.S., does it make me a mom-ster that I didn't miss my kids AT ALL. Not even the little one. I hope not... hey, at least I included them in my tattoo....)

I'm late to the party, but WOW, impressive! You're so wonderfully artistic!

New tats are always fun! I really love the family tree tat, and how you did the one in black and the one in white, just like the Magician card of any tarot.

Oops, I meant High Priestess card.

It is 7 a.m. I've been up since 6 a.m., babysitting. Normally, I wake up at 8:30 a.m.

Thus, I am a zombie, prone to making errors!

Heh. Well I wouldn't have known the difference, I haven't looked closely at a tarot deck in years... sigh.

Where IS my tarot deck?!
