This morning, we took it easy and relaxed. We took our time getting ready. We went to the chiropractor for a 9am appointment. He said he wants to see me next weekend. My neck is really out of place, great.
Around 11:30am, I was down in the basement doing laundry, and Andrew was out taking the trash. My parents came over. My mom called out, “Dan it is us. We are here.” I said, “I am in the basement.” She said, “the door was open, so we just came in.” I went upstairs and said, “that’s okay, I was doing laundry.” she said, “No problem. We saw Drew outside.” He came inside at this point and handed me an envelope from Pitt’s Childcare Center. I forgot I talked with them this week. He asked if, he could just put it upstairs. I said, “yes, please.” He went upstairs, with the mail and then came back down.
When it was time to leave, we all went in Drew’s car to Up in Arms, which is a Tattoo shop. As part of my 30th birthday present, I was getting my nose pierced again. I was so excited. I don’t know don’t ask me why, but I love the thrill of a needle. It is an adrenaline rush.
When we arrived at the tattoo shop, I told the woman I was here for a nose piercing. She said, come on back. She told the piercer what I was here for, and he came back into the room. They had me sit on this table, and fill out some forms on his iPad. I told him I had it pierced before and I would like it done in the same hole, as the previous one. Drew came back to the room to watch.
After I was done filling out the forms, he wiped my nose down with an alcohol wipe and marked the spot where he was going to pierce me and had me lay down. Then he put his surgical mask on, and washed his hands, and put some gloves on, and then he took the needle. I closed my eyes, and he said, “alright take a deep breath for me.” I felt the needle go in, and out. He then put the nose stud in my nose. There was a bunch of pressure, no pain, just pressure. It made my eyes water. It was normal. After he put the stud in, he had to tighten it inside my nose. He put his finger inside my nose in order to tighten it. It was sensitive, but it was back! I was so excited.
When we left the tattoo shop, we went to Eat n Park for breakfast/lunch. My parents loved my nose stud. I am so glad to have it back in. I love it. I was wondering what work was going to say, but I didn’t think they were going to say anything really, or even notice, because it is a University, and they are pretty laid back about this stuff.
After lunch, we went back to our house, and my parents got in their car to go let the dogs out and feed them. They were coming back over for the Pitt game later. Andrew and I vacuumed and finished laundry. It was nice to have some alone time. We also, went to the store to pick up the ingredients for Buffalo Chicken Dip. My dad requested it. We also had spinach dip left over from the Sociology welcoming event that we had at work.
When we got back home, I made the dip but waited to put it in the oven until closer to them arriving. They got there during the last half of the 1st quarter. Pitt didn’t look so good. This was a huge game. If they were going to lose, I knew Drew was going to be in a bad mood. Well, Pitt did lose, but it was nice to have my family over for the game.
After my parents left, we got the house back to normal, and then went to Home Depot to order our sliding glass door and skylights. Then we went to Giant Eagle: Market District and did some grocery shopping for the week, and to drop our dry cleaning off. Drew didn’t seem in that good of a mood. I wonder if we were both tired.
