Ok so dh ended up calling me around 2:30 and BEGS me to come to this cookout. So I broke down and went. I had slept for about 3 hours after they left so I felt a little better, just still had a little bit of a sore throat. I went and actually had a good time which is odd for me around people I don't know. I think I managed to make more then one person uncomfortable though. One of the guys complimented on my tattoo. Well at first I just said thanks, and left it at that. Then he started saying how all of his tattoos are all meaningful, like for a family member or whatever. So I told him I got mine in memory of my first son. He quickly changed the subject after getting an odd look on his face. Then a little while later someone was sitting by me and asked what my wristband said, so I told him it said "Remembering Our Babies". Again, I got silence.

We were all going out to see the fireworks, but the traffic was terrible (gee, gotta love Hampton Roads VA) and so while we were waiting in traffic, we decided to just go home. We were not moving and we could see the fireworks starting, so we knew by the time we found a place to park, etc. it would be time to leave again.

So now we are home, and actually waiting for irresponsible mom and her dh to come over and hang out. Should be a LONG night.

Gee, I remember sitting in traffic on July 4th when I lived in the Tidewater area! Everyone there is so... patriotic. Go figure. LOL
Share with us some pics of your tats. DH and I want one for our Nick, but I haven't seen anything inspiring yet.
Hope you're feeling better soon.

I would love to see your tatoo as well. I have been thinking for a long time I would like a small one.

Good for you for being honest at the party. Why can't people deal with this stuff? It HAPPENS, so they should just handle it! Glad you had some fun though:)
