Perfect way to end the week

As soon as I left work tonight I headed straight to a massage appointment. What a perfect way to end a long and often frustrating work week. With busy days and caregiving evenings, I decided a few months ago it was time to start treating myself. So the occasional mani/pedi and massage appointment are just what the doctor ordered. It makes me feel so spoiled and decadent!!
Have you ever noticed the background music in a spa? Its usually some sort of Yanni - pan flute relaxation tunes. While I was mid-massage, and slipping into utter relaxation mode, I began to focus on the music. It was oddly soothing. But I couldn't help but think that if I had to listen to this at home, work or trapped in an elevator for any length of time - I might gouge my ears with a sharp, pointy object!!
But somehow, when you are face down, semi-naked and oiled up.......IT WORKS. OK - Easy Ladies - I'm still talking about a massage! Hehehe
Afterwards I picked up Mom and Auntie and we went out for a great seafood supper - grilled scallops - Yummm
Definately a great start to the weekend.


  1. LOL, I have had several massages this year, and the being oiled-up face down on a table is a little weird to me too. I have not been back since the first of the summer after the last one, my arm is getting nub with the extreme computer use and I had the right lower arm muscles stripped, I thought ummmm I'm paying this lady to give me extreme unbearable lift me off the table pain. I think I'll just ask for a back rub next time.

  2. Ahhhh, a massage. What bliss. In fact, I think I'll call for an appointment right this second. I think that will be just the thing to start the school year off in a nice relaxed state of mind (and body!)
