Earrings and Other Stuff!


Brace yourselves, this could be long.

Well, I was actually talking to sweet Brooke through gmail chat when it happened. My mom came in my room, and sat down on my bed. I was thinking "What have I done?!" But then my sister and my brother showed up in the door way. Okay. 

I suppose I should tell you that my family gives each child a small gift when they 'graduate' from eighth grade. 

So, my mom was like "Lauren got a necklace, Sarah got earrings, so, would you like to have your ears pierced for your present?" I was like "Uh, yeah!!!" 

So, yesterday afternoon, I got my ears pierced. I wasn't nervous at all, but I declare, the lady at walmart wasn't helping. 

"This is just the wipe, sweetie. We're gonna clean you're ear okay?" 

"This is just the pen, honey,  I'm just gonna mark it okay? This isn't it yet."

"Okay, this is gonna sting a little, okay? This is what happens." And she showed me the little gun and how it worked. Okay, seriously. Just pierce them please? 

And it doesn't help when your mother and two other jewelry ladies are staring at you while the other worker prepares to pierce them. Let's just say it was extremely hard to keep a straight face. 

Finally, they were done. Sure, they hurt a little but it was awesome. Over and over again the lady kept asking me if I was okay. 

Sigh...
Anyway, here's a picture!


And so, today has been a cleaning day (don't look so shocked, I told you this wouldn't be all about earrings). My mom and brother have been sorting out the garage and old clothes. My dad had taken the van back to work after lunch, so my mom could have the truck in case she wanted to donate some of the things we didn't need. 

My mom ended up decided she wanted to do a yard sale instead. So, we didn't need the truck after all. However, I have violin lessons on Tuesdays, and it was a sight to see me and my mom pile into the truck along with my violin and bag of music. 

The truck is a stick shift. Nugh said. Let's just say my mom is a little rusty? It's was a bumpy ride. Especially when she went full force over a large "Traffic Hump". The expression on her face was priceless. 

Tonight my dad has been working in the garden! The sun is slowly setting, and it is really pretty out!


Also, thank you Talia for making my new favicon!!! I love it!!

So, that's what Monday and Tuesday were like for me. Anything new going on at your house? 

Later,
Kathryn (aka Chatty Kathy)

Hannah said...

The time I got my ears pierced has now become a memorable day in our family, because I passed out!

Yes, I passed out when I got my ears pierced.

I am now deathly afraid of needles, and pass out when I get shots or something like that.

But hey, I've got pretty ears ;)

Not anymore! They did at first, but now I forget I'm wearing them!
Yes, if you look on the lower left hand side of gmail, there is a chat place. Just type in an email of someone you know (I'm kgrace1999@gmail.com) and invite them to chat. If they accept you can see when they are on or off, and chat if you want.

Oh, that's okay! I haven' been commenting much either!!
