Nothing Says "Merry Christmas" Like A Pot Of Chili And A New Tattoo

Wow, does that ever sound white trashy.
Since Christmas falls on a Thursday this year, and Martin is the FNG at his job, he has to work on Friday. He is also on call, and believe it or not, some people are so dedicated that they actually work at home, over the holidays. I never did that, no siree Bob.
I'm making a big pot of chili for Christmas Day. Martin, Mia and I will celebrate in the morning and my friend Marla will be coming over in the late afternoon and we will hang out, eat chili, drink wine, and no doubt talk and laugh a lot. I haven't broken the news to Mia yet that Marla's 18 year old son Tyler isn't coming over. Mia, you see, has a crush on Tyler. That girl of mine, where does she get it from?
Martin got me a gift certificate and set up an appointment for a new tattoo. I've been talking about one for the longest time. I figure that since I no longer am any type of corporate drone, I should do what the hell what I want with my appearance, hence my big ass rock-n-roll hair with all the streaks. I want something small, quarter sized, on the inside of my right wrist. I already have ideas in mind.

That picture is The Brit and me at his boss's Christmas party.

Merry Christmas, and I can't wait to see the tattoo!

Well Lisa, I haven't broken the news to Tyler that by having to work, he's gonna miss seeing Mia either.

He is so funny, he has always HATED kids, but recently he's begun to like SOME of them.

He really likes Mia and the little girl and boy who live on our street. I think he really likes kids who are outgoing and smart and that describes your Mia!

OH, a tattoo......we'll have to discuss further tomorrow night.

Dahling--you look marvelous--love the hair and Martin looks like he is scheming something.

As for the tat--no comment--you just do whatever you want and enjoy!!

Happy New Year--let's hope.
