must I make dumb decisions! Ok folks... long story short so I can post about the cute baby I have. I hate my legs mainly because they are hairy, and i have the dark coarse hair that you can see before it pops out of the pore. SO I had this ingenious idea, I would go and get a quote for laser hair removal, one part of my leg at a time, and I prepared myself that the price would be way too much and I would be satisfied that I did something to look into a fix for the nasty dark hair... but no, I went in was sweet talked and financed and set up the appointment. Only to keep justifying it, I can go back to work at the bookstore, Reid loves me... right??? I am a favorite employee except when I put the hangers the wrong directions... if I knew how to post a link to an old post I would put it here... and I could pay it off before the financing had interest. Uhmmmm the more I thought about it the more I had to explain it, I was super stoked, cause that means I wouldn't have to shave for my whole vacation (at least my thighs which is what I was going to start with).
Brian seemed ok with it, I mean he wasn't thrilled, but he said if it would make me happy and I was willing to work to pay it off (whether that means I cook more/complain less or work 2 times a month at the bookstore, he doesn't care) but he still thought it was a little frivolous. I noted that but was super excited anyway, then I talked to my sister Amy (who is wise I am sure far beyond her years) and she gently put it out there that if I felt the need to clarify and justify it that maybe just maybe I needed to think about it some more. With that said, and me being irritated by it and selfish thinking I knew myself the best and this was in fact the best decision I could ever make for myself, it hit me... No one cares about your legs... stop being so selfish. I talked it over with the hubby and since I already set it all up it is going to cost us to cancel it, which is only fair, she took her time to meet with us and set it all up. He and I agreed that its ok, he told me that I could work and save my money in my own account just for this treatment, and in a year if I still wanted it I could get it and we would pay what we had up front and then finance the rest. Who knows in a year I may be more willing to deal with the hair, and decide to put it towards a car or something that we actually need more than me feeling ok about my legs. Anyway since I am a super wimp Brian agreed to call (this is why I love him folks, I tend to get over emotional, and lose my cool way to fast, and with the stress of getting ready to go to my mom's my stomach started to churn) and he figured he would ask them first to freeze the account (since they would do that if I became pregnant) and let them know that in a year we would know for sure if this was the right thing for me. If not we pay 10% which is better than paying the whole thing.... So I live and learn, looks like I can't give Brian crap anymore about his Car fiasco:D And I am even more grateful for a sister and husband more grounded than I am, that can help me process my mistakes and grow from them. Ok so that wasn't short... but there you have it, perhaps I will be able to sleep now!
