I give up on giving up drinking. And on telling myself what to do.
Tuesday night, (yes, right after I made the vow to not drink for the rest of the month), boyfriend and I went for a cocktail at our favorite bar before he dropped me off at work. I got to work around midnight and it went alright for me. There are quite a few conventions in town this week, thankfully.
On Wednesday, we both had the whole day off. I never had to leave the apartment but, boyfriend did, just once, to fill up our water jugs. We’ve been drinking so much water lately, it’s like he has to refill our jugs every day now! I even had to text him right now that we’re all out yet again.
Yesterday, boyfriend worked the evening shift. I woke up around 2 PM and read a bit of Sweetpea by C.J. Skuse. Norrie (@Reading Under the Blankie) recommended it to me after she read my raving review on #FashionVictim by Amina Akhtar. The protagonists are definitely a bit similar and I’m enjoying it so much! Thank you tons and tons, Norrie. ❤
I ate a small salad topped with chicken, pine nuts, raw cashews, croutons, and Annie’s Goddess Dressing. I also made a sandwich with just black forest ham, original Chao cheese, mayo, and honey mustard but I barely ate it.
I started watching a new show called Girlfriends’ Guide To Divorce on Netflix. I like it a lot and binge-watched a few episodes in a row while I removed my old nail polish, filed my nails, and repainted them.
When will I ever get better at painting them nicely? LOL. We may never know. I used JLB Cosmetics Nail Lacquer in Plum It. It’s a super pretty shade but more pinkish than purple so the name doesn’t really match!
After they dried, I didn’t have time to write a Journal Entry so I posted an already written book review on The Accidentals by Sarina Bowen. Boyfriend was already home by that time but I hadn’t done my makeup or anything yet. Before I got dropped off, we went for a drink together again. 😀
I got to work around midnight, snagged a few dances, then one of my colleagues and a bouncer grabbed me, telling me that a returning client was there to see me. We had met when he came with a bachelor party a couple weeks ago, then they had come back like the next day and we spent a lot of time together. That night, his friends were all missing by the time we exited our champagne room.
He had returned on his own last week to find me NOT THERE! Because I’m a lazy idiot who always stays home when I shouldn’t… I was not expecting him to fly back again at all, especially not so soon, since I wasn’t there the first time and he lives in Cali.
We immediately went into the champagne room and spent about the same amount of time together as we did the previous time. I am so extremely grateful to have met such a cool, fun, and nice guy. ❤ He brought me the best best best gifts, ever, too!!!
Three THC vape cartridges by Dank Vapes and a battery made by Brass Knuckles!!! We smoked the Fruity Pebbles one together a little in the room but, it was his first time smoking so I had to teach him how to inhale it properly and such. It was absolutely hilarious lol! I couldn’t believe that he was letting me bring all of it home! They all have 1 gram of product each, the packaging is adorable, and the back descriptions are so well-written and informative.
I won’t write what every single one says but for example, the Fruity Pebbles one says this on the back of the box:
This sweet hybrid takes genetics from Green Ribbon, Granddaddy Purple, and Tahoe Alien to create a tropical, berry flavor reminiscent of the cereal. The euphoric effects will keep you happy when you’re stressed and help you catch some sleep when faced with insomnia.
My client actually wanted to spend more time with me but, we were closing in 10 minutes after our last one ended. What a bummer! It really didn’t feel that late and I wasn’t even that tired. He had bought us around 4 half bottles of Patron but, we barely made a dent in the first one. I didn’t even ask if I could bring the bottles home this time because that bouncer is so wishwashy. He was being nice but, I didn’t want him to say anything about me carrying the vapes out in my hand so I let the bottles go LOL.
If you didn’t know, marijuana (in all forms) is legal here but not meant to be smoked in public places and definitely not allowed to be carried around without a bag that is completely opaque. I am happy that I got to keep all my goodies though I still think I probably could have gotten the bottles as well… I just didn’t wanna deal with the fuss, y’know?
When boyfriend picked me up, we went straight home. I didn’t want to shower but, couldn’t sleep without doing so. Usually I’ll get washed up before our before-bed blunt but, this time, I ended up going in after we finished smoking.
When I returned to bed, I thought boyfriend had fallen asleep but he really surprised me. 😉 We didn’t officially hit the hay until nearly 7 AM.
Today, boyfriend’s working the evening shift. I woke up around 2 PM and read a little more of Sweetpea before I took a shower, shaved, and moisturized. I heated up some mixed up leftovers for dinner and watched an episode of Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.
Right after that, I hopped onto here. 🙂
I hope you all have an amazing and safe weekend!!!
