You want me to... what?!

Funny thing happened to me in the Dr's office...

So as you all know, I live with some anxiety issues (I hate saying "suffer from") and I have no shame in admitting that my tired little brain and shriveled little heart can't take on all by themselves and that I, after much consideration and deliberation with my doctor, decided that medication would be safe and helpful. I've been on it for quite some time now and I have no intentions on being on it forever. I have a whole rant about anxiety medication but I'll save it for another post. Anyhow...

A couple months ago, I visited my doctor to refill my prescription. It was the first time I'd seen her since Mom had passed so when she asked how I was doing I told her what had happened but didn't really but any emphasis and really said it matter-of-factly so that she wouldn't bug me with questions or try to stuff more meds down my throat. It worked because it seems she thought I said my Mom was sick.

But, it made for a funny story this time around...

Her : So how are you doing?
Me : Good. Work's good and things seem to finally be looking up. *smile*
Her : Great! So, you've been on this medication for quite some time now... do you think it would be a good time to start thinking of lowering your dose?
Me : I'm sorry, what?
Her : Well, I know you don't want to be on them for longer than you absolutely need. Do you think now would be a good time to start thinking of stopping them?
Me : HA!
Her : *confused*
Me : Do you want a short synopsis of the last 8 months of my life?!
Her : *confused more*

I won't go into much detail because you pretty much know the story.

Her : *silent*
Me : So... yeah... no.
Her : Do you want more?

Long Weekend Laze

What are your plans for the long weekend?
Ours : Nadda.

We are kicking back lazy style this weekend it seems. We are totally poor due to some unplanned expenses earlier this month - I won't bore you with the details - and the fact that our pay schedules are just balls lately. Js being paid twice a month and me every two weeks, most times it works wonderfully but this month, it works out that we go two weeks on my salary alone instead of just one week so we need to stretch it out a bit more if we don't want to dig into our savings or load up our credit card.

Yesterday was good though. Js got a promotion (Go babe!) and we went out for lunch and started looking at getting a new kitchen table set. Not to purchase right now but just looking at some different options of what we'd like. Then we rented a movie and got some take out pitas for dinner. Yum.

I'm hoping to get started sorting out some garage sale stuff this weekend too. We have a Base wide garage sale each spring out here and it's normally pretty good so I'm hoping to have a chance to declutter before then and make the most of it. I'm going to go through all the boxes we've been storing in the basement over the last year so that should clear up a bit of our storage space. For what? More crap!

Right now, our spare bedrooms upstairs are divided as such : Office/guest-bedroom and Where-shit-goes-to-die. Why not split up the office and guest bedroom and make the most of our space?! Maybe even convince Js to paint a wall or two in the process... or make me a super-duper-awesome yarn organizer. :)

Have a great May Long everyone!

I'm falling apart.

Like, seriously.

My fingers hurt like hell due to my incessant crocheting these past few days. I've been trying to catch up and keep up with all the projects I have going on at the same time - why do I do this to myself? - and it's just been taking up most of my concentra... wha?

My tattoo is healing nicely but it's itching like a little bitch. It's so bad, I sometimes have to put down my crochet (!!) to tap-tap-tap on it to stop the itching. I follow Js around everywhere with a tub of Vitamin E Body Butter with sad puppy eyes. "Honey! You're home! LOTION!" And the phrase "It puts the lotion on it's skin, or else it gets the hose." just crosses my mind way too many times a day to still call myself sane.

My allergies are nutso. I think I may have found this year's medication cocktail but it still needs a bit of fine tuning. When cover lunches at the reception desk at work - right by the two big sets of doors - it's like I just rubbed a canola flower in my face. Now, let me get one thing straight. I'm well aware that it's not canola season yet - I'm saying it's "like" canola... which only means that it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Happy May Long Weekend everyone?!

Tattoo'ed up! :)

It's done! I got my third tattoo done on Wednesday and it's beyond anything I'd imagined it would be.

I was good and didn't sob like a wee child. It took 3 hours total, including all the sketching and forms to fill and stuff. Well worth it, every second of it! The artist was the same guy who did my foot last year so it was great feeling comfortable and confident that he'd do an amazing job. I ran into him today and he asked to see how it was healing. He said she was healing beautifully and of course, if I need touch ups to just give him a call. Nice man. :)

Anywhos... I haven't had the guts to post a picture of it on Facebook just yet but... I think I'm ready to post one on here.

Without further ado :

Tomorrow is Mother's Day and I really wish it wasn't. I've been doing an amazing job (I think) at living in denial and now, thanks to Hallmark my efforts are shot to hell.

Hopefully I get out of this rut and my little self-inflicted pity-party ends soon.

On May 11th, I'm getting my third tattoo and I'm super pumped about it.
