What boredom will lead to

I've been sitting here trying to keep my mind on other things.

I decided I needed sushi today, so I bought some for the family from my favorite place. When I asked the boys if they wanted Japanese, and they immediately said yes. The problem? They weren't thinking Japanese, they were thinking Chinese. When I asked what they wanted, Michael said 'Mongolian Beef' *laugh*

While waiting for the food, I went to World Market and got a Henna tattoo kit. I'm making some designs for Mendhi art on my ankles and feet. I don't know why I feel the need to do this, but I do. Perhaps it is that Mendhi is considered to be a protector against bad things and illness.

I have a sweet Tippy puppy laying on my legs :)

It's 8:30 on a Saturday night and I'm considering taking a Phenergan and going to bed. I'm THAT exciting!

I've done NOTHING today other than going out to get dinner. I've sat here, can't get interested in anything on the computer, can't focus on much, and haven't really felt like talking with anyone. I don't want to talk to get anyone down. I'm just sitting and staring around.

I can't get rid of the smell of Eucalyptus oil from my fingers. I mixed the henna with lime juice and the oil. Once I got it creamy enough, I covered it so it can sit for the next 24-48 hours. Maybe I'll spend some time Monday putting my design on. It's such a lengthy process - several hours - and then it has to stay on for a long time. I think it might be cathartic to concentrate on the process, the art and the meaning.

I was just complaining about no sushi earlier...

I love henna tattos. Maybe I should get one on my ankle at the kid fest we are just heading out to.
