It always is, isn’t it.
I’m not even talking specifically about relationship structures, and interpersonal interactions. I’m just talking about LIFE. Making sure that there’s milk in the fridge and toilet paper in the closet, and that you take your iron pill every day. Keeping an eye on the laundry so that you aren’t being shaken awake by a child on a cold school morning because he can’t find any clean socks. Birthdays, and car registration, and paying the electric bill on time.
Oh and don’t forget doctor’s appointments, puppies,car troubles, and ex-husbands while you’re also working full time and wanting a little bit of a social life, for which you struggle to not feel guilty over.
So what’s the modern woman to do, with so much on her plate?
Find more to do! Do all the things!
Yes, I’ve got it down. I’m researching a new camera and signing up for a photography class! I need a challenge and I need art. Special Man Friend gave me a subscription to some photo magazines, and now I just have to settle on a camera.
Today I got my nose pierced. I don’t know why exactly, except I’ve been dying to do it for a couple of months. I think SMF was tired of hearing me talk about it, because he made the call, and drove me over while we were together today doing mundane, every day, LIFE things. I picked a tiny iridescent opal stud that I love. Opals are my birthstone, and I’ve always liked them.
Now I can’t wait to get a tattoo!

Oh girl. I am so there with you. I started with just a little tattoo.. and an ear cartilage piercing. Hehehe. I have plans. I hope you love your nose and your tattoo. Maybe pics some day. 🙂
Congrats in the piercing. I want to have my lip done and a tattoo but I keep hearing that nagging voice saying “you’re too old to be acting like this”. 😦
I got my nose pierced for my 40th birthday and never regretted for a minute. Four years later I still love it! Thinking about a tattoo…maybe for 50!
I’m planning a tattoo this year to celebrate my 45th. I’m over the moon excited about it. It feels like I finally own my body, if that makes any sense. ♡
