This summer, the smell of nail polish permeates our home.
Faith is obsessed with nail polish. She changes her colors daily - sometimes several times daily - and adds coat after coat after coat. She and her friend, Em take turns doing each others’ nails and coming up with new patterns.
On the plus side, I have a willing pedicurist whenever I want one.
On the minus side, Faith is scornful of my refusal to wear polish on my fingers (it chips too fast!) and looks down her nose at my nude nails.
Very well dressed.
Tomorrow I am taking Faith, her fingernails, and Reagan to Chicago where we are going to see Cirque du Soleil’s Michael Jackson Immortal show.
We are beyond excited. Faith has been an avid MJ fan ever since she first heard of him - which happened to be the day he died. While Rich and I both appreciate Michael Jackson, neither of us were really fans so Faith didn’t hear his music until that day, and the weeks to follow when it got played non-stop.
She became obsessed.
So when I heard about this show from a friend I looked up the closest city it would be visiting and got the tickets. It’s going to be a long drive each way, but totally worth it.
The only hitch?
My car got towed to the dealership late this afternoon.
I’m pretty sure it’s just a really dead battery and should be fixed first thing in the morning, but … well, it’s always something, isn’t it?
Still, one way or another we are going to get there and it’s going to be awesome.
What’s your big event for this summer?
