Feminine details

I've been dabbling in something I NEVER did. Nail polish! I have hands that shake like palsy sometimes. I also have muscle spasms at random and arthritis. So I never painted my own nails.

A bad day led me to the salon in my office complex. I got a basic turquoise shimmer color that I liked. My boss was giving my coworker some polishes she never used and in the bag was a bottle of CRACKLE gold polish. So I had a couple accent nails in crackle gold.

Mermaid nails!

The mermaid nails lasted a few days, but chipping is inevitable. But we had a big office meeting today, and I wanted some White Staffing nails. So I took our business colors - teal and black, and had a gel polish applied. So far so AWESOME. It's super hard and durable. I've done everything with these nails and the polish is super durable.

I'm not one to indulge in make up or 'beauty' products, but my coworkers have inspired me to dabble. I don't have great nails either, but I felt a little extra special today.

Upside I love gel polish. It won't be an all the time thing, but for the occasional indulgence, I could see a gel polish application as being worth my time.

Also Jam is still kickin' it. He got some new tank rocks (glass pebbles and a big smooth stone for resting). His color is so much better than his last one where he was sporting stress stripes!

Haircuts and Liquor

I got a haircut, DH got a haircut. We ate Mexican food. It was delicious. I had fajitas.

 Liquor shopping with my mom! We hit up two liquor stores searching for her Kinky liquor. Meanwhile I took advantage of airplane bottles to stock my literal mini-bar. Two things of Black Magic rum, a $2 bottle of SoCo (my favorite), a tiny bottle of gin, American Turkey Wild Honey, Elderflower vodka, and birddog peach whiskey.

No kids don't drink it all at once. In fact, those tiny bottles will last me months as I'm not a drinker. But sometimes a little taste is fun.

The chicken cock bottles just made me giggle.

Star shirt, star bag, star nails. Black and white and red (and grey and blue). All my favorites.

Real Life Skin

Finally having health insurance has meant I can finally get things checked out that have been ignored for years. I have moles. I have dark ones, light ones, little ones, big ones, freckles, etc. It's genetic.

But I've had this suspicious place riiiight on my temple for a few years (outlined in a fashionable purple). And no free or discount clinic will touch a suspicious "lesion" on a person's face or hands because of potential scarring (and the resulting patient complaints).

So it went untouched.

Until today!

Now I have several stories I've considered sharing here from my past two months experience of using health care with "real" insurance. But we'll start lightly on this one.

I waited 45 minutes in a freezing office. A lovely nurse gave me a shot (IN MY FACE) and for those interested, my psych meds are working out beautifully because my heart rate didn't even elevate as she did it. Five minutes later the dermatologist came in, scraped off the biopsy and shook my hand. The nurse cleaned my wound and gave me a magic bandaid and sent me on my way ($50 poorer).

Health care is scary. It's expensive. It's also one of the biggest businesses in existence. I find myself questioning it more than I've ever questioned anything.

Most fascinating to me is what is covered and what isn't. For example, had I booked with this dermatologist myself? I likely would've paid the whole visit out of pocket. As a referral from my primary care due to the suspicious lesion, I pay for a specialist. Go figure.

I'm a Professional!

I started my little blog over five years ago! I was just out of high school, newly married. MMD has gone with me through marriage, college, and now my career. My office branch - White Staffing! turned One Years Old this month!

Pictured here from left to right: My account reps (Paula, Jackie, and Nakol), my director of operations (Gerri), The mayor of Gallatin (Jo Ann Graves), my boss (Pam), the office coordinator (me!!), and our Tennessee sales rep (Netta).

I absolutely love my job, and I'm very proud to be about to mark my six months with the company. I cannot wait for the next six.

This job is what's turned Megan Mae "Daily" into Megan Mae 'Sometimes', but it is definitely something I enjoy pouring my energies into.

Labor Day thrifting scores

Couple of cute tops - Stars! Stripes! Soft!

 Thinking ahead, grabbed this striped sweater thing, and a pair of button fly jeans - love!

I can't live without an ugly oatmeal sweater. Sorry, they look horrible on me, but I love them. So.. oatmeal sweater. Found the DH a pair of pikolinos boots for $5. I also got a black cardigan not pictured.

Total spent: $13.45
