June 8th: Just Random Life Things

Guys. I skipped a day again. WOOPS. Guess I'm having too much fun living life to stop and write about it.

NO. That is the trap I fell in to for the past six months. Excuses excuses!

We've actually been pretty busy watching Ben and Kristin's dogs while they were on vacation, but they finally left last night. I'm not gonna lie, watching Chloe would have been a trillion times more enjoyable than living with three crazy dogs. Nym liked having Mango and Lex here though. Eric and I discussed adopting another big dog for Nym's sake, but then we realized we were out of our minds for even thinking we could handle that right now.
EDIT: Kristin actually just texted me. "If you decide you want Lex, you can rename him Reek to go with your theme." HAHAHAHAHAHA

Besides that, we potted some plants on the patio. We better be able to keep these things alive. It's starting to look really nice out there! More like a place you want to hang out, less like a prison yard.

Also, I had a consultation with one of the best local tattoo artists in the area (sorry Mom and Dad). She's booked up until December, which is ridiculous, but speaks to her talent. I've been stalking her work on instagram for almost a year.

It has been really hard for me to let myself do things for myself that aren't necessary. I haven't bought makeup, jewelry, a new bathing suit, tank tops, even wine. Anything I want just for myself. I am very safe with my spending, which is a good thing and balances out Eric's tendency to back 398572305 board game kickstarters ;) but also kind of sucks the joy out of life sometimes. Eric reminds me that it is okay to treat myself once in awhile, but I just haven't done it. I feel like there is always something more important for our life together that I could be getting.

So, that's why I decided to finally take the plunge and book an appointment. I have until December to save up for it, and it's something I've wanted for a very, very long time. Not everyone will agree with my decision, for various reasons I'm sure, but this is my life. This will make me happy when I see it every day. It's artwork that I can take it with me wherever I go :)
