Miller On Demand

Bringing you the live, uncensored, uncut, and up-to-date info from our lives. Jeff and I are using this to help bridge the gap between our friends and family and us. We are also using this blog as a written documentation of our lives and adventures of being a military family. Our current adventure has us living in Raymore, MO. We have been here for a year and a half and like it pretty well. We moved here after spending three wonderful years in Okinawa, Japan. We LOVED it there it was so much fun, the culture is amazing and we definitely miss it. But being a military family we have become accustomed to change and it has become that time again for a change. So we are embracing our life here in Missouri but also planning a move to Chicago in the summer. Such is the life of the military but we are hoping that it will bring great experiences and memories like we have experienced in the past.

Jeff and I are both 28, we have been married for 8 years, together for 10 and known each other for over 13 years. We have been struggling with infertility for over five years. We found out after a year of trying that I have PCOS and it definitely makes things harder in the TTC universe. We got pregnant in 2010 using Clomid and sadly suffered a miscarriage. We had to take a break from TTC because it was controlling our lives but we got back on it when we came back to the states. We went to a RE here in MO and he wanted to hold off on trying for six months so that I could participate in this PCOS trial he was doing using BC pills and a Flax Seed Pill. He also wanted me to lose weight (which is what all of my doctors have told me and I have been trying to). Anyways the trial lasted for six months and after that we would talk about our options with Clomid or Femara (I wasn’t ready to start IUI or IVF quite yet). When the trial ended I didn’t have a chance to make it back in to see him right away. I suppose it was a good thing that I couldn’t go see him right away because my first period after being off BC I ended up getting pregnant. Without any medicines or treatments or anything we definitely didn’t think anything would happen we figured we would have to go back in and try more meds before we would ever get pregnant again and BAM it came out of nowhere and we were pregnant! We are definitely blessed with this miracle baby and are so excited we can’t wait to find out everything we can and finally meet our little baby!

Right now, we are enjoying our 3 extremely spoiled dogs: Marley (7 year old Dachshund) and Tucker (6 year old Akita/Husky), and Coco (our crazy hyper 1 year old Chesapeake Bay Retriever!) and exploring this new home that we have and the sites around it. I hope you enjoy reading about our adventures as much as I enjoy posting about them.

1. Do your research when choosing a tattoo and an artist.

  • Don’t rush yourself when choosing an idea. You’re going to have to live with it forever.
  • Most artists have a speciality, think about this when choosing  one. If you want a photorealistic tattoo don’t choose an artist who specializes in American Traditional, for example.
  • Don’t ask to have your neck/face/hands tattooed if it’s your first tattoo, you will most likely be denied.
  • Look into the cost of the tattoo before walking into the shop, don’t sacrifice the tattoo you want to get a good deal. Save up to get the right ink.
  • Be prepared to be placed on a large wait list for the more popular artists.

2. Prepare properly on the day you get your tattoo.

  • Eat a full meal beforehand.
  • Many artists recommend drinking orange juice prior to getting inked.
  • Don’t drink alcohol beforehand.
  • Getting tattooed is a pretty intimate experience, don’t forget to shower.

3. Bring a good reference photo.

  • Bring in a high res photo if possible; at the very least a picture that is big and not blurry.

4. Don’t bring your entourage to the shop with you.

  • It’s fine to bring a friend to hold your hand, any more than one is rude and obnoxious.
  • Children are not permitted in most tattoo shops, leave them at home.

5. Trust your artist. 

  • The artist knows what they are doing, there is no need to be a “backseat driver.”

6. Check out the stencil design, body placement, and spelling before the tattoo begins.

  • If you see something, say something. You aren’t going to hurt anyone’s feelings if you tell them that something is spelled incorrectly.

7. Be prepared to go through some pain, tattoos hurt.

  • Don’t be afraid to tell your artist that you need to take a break if the pain is too much. Nobody wants a passed out client.
  • Ribs, feet, hands, head, and the spine all really hurt.

8. Stay still!

  • We know that it might be difficult to do so, but make every effort to remain as calm and still as possible while getting tattooed. If you are jittery the artist won’t be able to create straight lines.

9. Tip your artist.

  • Most artists don’t own their shops and have to pay a percentage of the tattoo price to the shop.
  • Tipping anywhere between 10-20% should be fine.
  • If you really love the work don’t be afraid of tipping extra.

10. Take care of your tattoo once you leave the shop.

  • Tattoo aftercare is a crucial step in assuring you have a good tattoo.
  • Tattoos will scab and they should heal in 2-3 weeks.
  • Avoid sun and going in bodies of water for the first 2 weeks.
  • Keep the tattoo moist and clean as it heals.
  • Once it’s healed don’t forget to use SPF 50 sunscreen when going outside, you don’t want your tattoo to fade.

#1  I de-friended this kid ages ago to get rid of this crap on my facebook page. But its still pops up because of facebook shitty settings (someone I am friends with liked his status, and now I can see it? ????) 
#2 This is the very epitome of THANKS OBAMA I think I have ever seen.
#3 Ebola spreads rapidly in countries without proper infrastructure, healthcare, resources to clean water etc etc. I THINK DALLAS CAN HANDLE ITSELF. 
#4 I can’t even right now. Like. Can’t even.
#5 This is why I am a raging liberal on facebook.  Because I went to high school with people who religiously watch Fox News and blame Obama for everything.

Oh lord ^^ I see this stupid crap all the time. Thank you for stating it so maturely and accurately! I never have the patience to deal with this crap when I see it to write any kind of response not laden with a bunch of F* bombs :)

when skydiver Joan Murray’s parachute failed, she approached the ground at 80 miles (128km) per hour, landing on a mound of fire ants. The shock from being stung over 200 times by the ants released a surge of adrenaline which kept her heart beating, and allowed her to survive.

Omg if I ever feel like I am having a bad day….it could always be worse. :)

Kindsness always overcomes antagonism… Instead ofconfronting our children we need to remember to communicate with them, understanding the challenges they face and empathising

Communication is the fundemental building block of a good relationship and after all what more could we want for our children. Establishing a framework where they feel empowered and understand the boubdaries of their acrions drives their ability to make the right choices in life

Ohh how badly I needed to read this. I’ve been struggling with kindness lately
