A Sausage Is Only As Strong As It’s Weakest Spice

The week sure has flown by! It seems like I barely had time to turn around and here we are heading into the weekend. I suppose it helps to be very busy, LOL.
The munch on Tuesday was a lot of fun. I got to get to know that young Dom a little better, and spent a lot of time chatting with that Domme friend of mine who needs a name, but I’m coming up short. Hmmmm, Deja will do nicely I think Anyway, a nice visit was had by all, and I’m setting up arrangements with Deja and that young Dom to play sometime in the next couple of weeks.
We also had Saydie’s birthday this week, which we had a simple celebration for. She was pleased, and spoiled of course. Hard to believe she’s already 4 years old, where do all the years go?
Today has been very exciting thus far. I finally went in and got that double labret/snake bite piercing I’ve been itching to get for well over a year. After some researching and asking around, I decided to head over to Cambridge to see Jesse Villemaire at Thrive Studios. Although they do take walk-ins, I called ahead to make sure they would be able to fit me in today, since I didn’t want to drive all that way for nothing.
Jesse was super awesome, I found him really easy to talk to about what I wanted and he was really easy going and made sure to thoroughly go over the process and aftercare with me before he got started. I’ll admit, I’d been so anxious and nervous all day, I thought I might vomit. My stomach was churning, which happens pretty much every time I do something different that I know is going to involve some amount of discomfort.
I was really pleased at how thorough and picky he was when it came to placing the dots for the piercing. He must have done them over at least half a dozen times to make sure they were as close to perfect as possible. Once we had agreed on the placement he very gently clamped my lip, with just enough pressure to hold the piercing area still. Then he had me take a deep breath and exhale while he did the piercing itself. Yes, it pinched, but it wasn’t at all unbearable, and he was very quick about it.
When he did the second hole I knew what to expect so I wasn’t anxious at all. He put in temporary jewelry, which is extra long to allow for swelling in the first couple of weeks. Yes, they look pretty crappy, but I get to go back in three weeks and he will measure me for more permanent jewelry and change it for me, for free!
He sent me on my way, after giving some free pins to my kiddos, who everyone in the shop just adored (I brought Nia as well to keep them entertained while I was getting the work done). I really couldn’t be happier with how they look.
I’ll have to post updated photos in a few weeks once I get the new jewelry put in. I’ll probably wear them with plain silver balls for the most part, but there are lots of other cute jewelry options for special occasions. I think I’m going to order a set of these, once I determine the length I’ll need after the holes are all healed up.
Ten hours later and they aren’t even sore anymore. There is still a little swelling, but nothing an Advil won’t cure. Eating has become an interesting experience, since the current posts are extra long and tend to wiggle around a fair bit when I move my mouth. It’s not painful, just a little weird, LOL.
Also, I got to cross another thing off my bucket list! 351. Get a double labret/snake bite piercing
This weekend I’m going to get the house into better order, in preparation for Padme’s visit (less than 4 weeks away) and because Mz. F (formerly known only as F) is visiting at the end of June as well. I love having company, and I want the place to be tidy so I don’t have to worry about that while anyone is here. I also plan to catch some sun and take the kids to the park, maybe take few photos and catch up on some sleep, Hee Hee.
Have a great night all! I’m off to bed. Sweet Dreams XOXO
