This week we are starting at the beginning, energy-wise. Instead of -1 or -2 that is. Usually Monday hits and I'm still trying to catch up on my sleep. Why the clean slate? Yesterday I was very fortunate to be able to sneak out of the house on my own for a couple of hours, to the spa. I came home in very relax noodle shape...like a soggy piece of spaghetti, but well, not that gross. I believe I have mentioned the Kabuki spa and communal baths that is near my house. How wonderful it is, how relaxing, euphoric....etc. It was exactly what I needed yesterday after a stressful week, and to top off the bath I went whole hog and got a massage. I think it seriously has changed my life. Never having had a massage before, I admit that in the past I have been a little dubious about how incredible it could possibly be when others have told me so. No more, I am completely converted. I'm now positive that I should have a massage at least once a month (well maybe once every 3 months...they're pricey) to get rid of all of the residual tension gathered from carrying around a heavy infant. My massuse -Chris, a very authentic Kiwi, pounded me back in to shape (it was a deep tissue massage, I really do mean pounded) and as a result I have had more energy today than I thought possible. Trying to convince Pete that he needs to go, I'm almost there - I think that it might appeal to him because its not a 'back rub'-type of massage.
Its a good thing that I'm all relaxed because Blu-chan has a cold, her first. The poor thing is coughing and sneezing and blowing snot bubbles everywhere. So is Peter (except for the snot bubble part). :-(
