My husband told me today he is looking for a place to remove his neck tattoo. I know it's for the best, it's time, but he's had that tattoo for like 12 years and honestly I think I'm gonna miss it. His dad had a talk with him about about us being here and our future. He told Michael that one day this will all be yours. Not just the company here but we have ones going up in Greece, Slovenia, Africa, Mongolia and 2 in the states.  Michael needs to be ready and he cannot have this tattoo if he wants to be successful. I am not quite sure I am ready for this change, It is huge and looks as if it may involve another international move for us. I am feeling a little bit anxious about out future, were just feeling settled here. But who knows maybe we'll like Africa.

Wow, Michael must be apprehensive about removing the tattoo. I've heard the removal is more painful than getting them. Will he have to come back to the states to have it done? I recall reading some where about a new procedure that was less painful but it takes a few sessions.

As for moving on, it must be so hard. I think there are some people that love change and thrive on new experiences. While others prefer similar surroundings and little change. For instance I have a friend that has never travelled out of New England. She hates to travel and just comes to work and goes home at night. But she loves her life. I think the opportunites Michael is being exposed to is wonderful and you are wonderful for supporting him. I'm a worrier by nature and I like structure. The idea of moving to another country would freak me out. Are you going to homeschool the girls if you go elsewhere? Sorry, I probably just gave you something else to worry about.

No matter what, the most important thing is that you and Michael are together with the girls where ever you go. All you need is each other and the rest will work itself out. :)

 Where and what?  I am very interested. He can't come back to the states for it. But he can be else where in Europe.

 I am not sure if we will be homeschooling? I guess it will depend on where we go. Please..not Mongolia!! That would SUCK!!!
