The $25 Massage

I have been promising you guys the little story about the $25 massage I have been getting the ones that I have enjoyed so much that I have been going every other week. I will tell you now seek one out in your community. I am going to one of the local technical schools. And if you are all wha I need a massage but don't have the $65 plus it cost in my area. Then get the to one of these schools. Find one in your area. Sure they are students but they are about to graduate.

When I went the first time I had to fill out this little info sheet and after each massage they ask you to critique your masseur. But get yee to the technical school for a good but cheap massage.

The Before

Here it is The Before of me taken on Monday July 27th this is what I look like as I began my get in shape journey. I was frankly taken aback by it. I knew I had gained a great deal of weight and was pudgy. But Wholly Shit. I stood up straight and did not poke out my stomach but I did not suck it in either. I am not brave enough to post it on face book till I have an after but here I am.

This is not who I want to be. I was up and at the gym at 5:30 this morning. I have to start somewhere and I hope that this picture will be the motivation I need.

I'm a nut

So when I was little my GrandMamie taught me this song we said "stare at me" instead of "step on me". I sang this today to my high school friends Kim's little girl this of course was after I was called a nut by America's Next Top Mommy. So this is for you. This little girl is so cute. I could just eat her up.

Join a Gym

So if you have been thinking hey I want to join a gym but they are so expensive with fees and long term contracts. I was just offered a month to month for 14.95 at Urban Active and since I am gaining weight at an alarming rate I figured I would go for it. Then if I don't go I can back out. SO that's it right now I might join a gym cool huh. Yay I know not really but hey.

In the last few weeks I have been tired. And I am talking I can't get out of bed in the morning when the alarm clock goes off. Then I need a nap in the middle of the day and by 10pm I am fighting to stay awake. My energy has been non existent. So for all I know I could be dying. I could also be old or just plain not eating enough veggies. I am working on this.

I am waiting now to hear back from from an insurance company about health insurance. The cost right now is about $60 a week. It will mean not so much fun since I paid off my car. Not as much free will nilly spending. It does mean meds for my migraines and annual physicals. I don't know if I will know what to with health insurance. I can tell you it is over all much easier when it comes out of your check before your employer hands it to you. It seems like much more when you get the check and then they take it.

I know I promissed you all this whole story on my $25 massage at the school well I am having another one today. Does that tell you anything? I swear I will tell you guys all about it. I know its what you are waiting to hear.

I am in search of a buddy, a pal , a friend to go with me on this cruise planned for Oct. 31 - Nov 5th. It was supposed to be a Paranormal cruise and that all fell through. Everyone else has pulled out and I still want to go. Who will go with me? I am trying to find someone to share my cabin space with. Any ideas?
I have really been looking forward to going and this was set up in my mind as my big get-a-way. The long planned retreat to relaxation land. Sitting by the pool drinking Cosmos , soaking up sun and waiting for the Deck Boy to make me feel like he never flirts with any other women the way he is flirting with me. To be away from my cell phone and to leave my Internet behind. Schedule a massage and then pad back to a deck chair where I can fall asleep amid the sounds of the Gulf. Stroll around Cozumel and buy trinkets I just don't need. Check out the midnight seafood buffet then enjoy a glass of wine while the moon lays across the water and nice talk about everything and nothing. And plain old girl time

I'm here

honestly I am. I have a massage scheduled this afternoon at one of the schools. It is supposed to cost only $25 and from all I hear it is pretty good. Basically you go and a student gives you the massage. They learn and your stress is gone. Of course I have to drive home after that which seems to defeat the purpose but I need this.

I also need to go to Sam's and shop for Pizza on the Grill Night , pick an outfit for the opening reception of a Creative Drawing & Painting Visual Varitete I have been invited to and find my camera. I have seen it since the break in in fact I had it with me for a while just need to look for it.

How was your day I hope it was well. Mine was long and I was not able to get anything done I indented to do. That would have required that I be in the office which I have not been for the last two days. I have a long list of things to do. I also have a big meeting anyone with tips on how to bitch slap TennCare into giving me what is needed for the person I am advocating for please let me know. I am also hiring lpns send them my way if you know of any.
I have a ton of laundry to do and that really entails me changing my sheets. That is my plan for good sleep tonight. Clean sheets. And a clean room somehow that always seems to make a huge difference in things being fresh. So once this is done I have a project to do. I know you will be waiting with bated breath to find out if I got my room clean.
I am also working on plans for Pizza on the Grill night for Saturday night with some friends you should come by. What pizza toppings do you like?
That is it for my day. I know I know how can one have such an exciting life and still have time to blog it is unreal to me to.

Still Awake

UGH I am still unable to sleep. I have now moved into hot lavender tea mode. I have not taken anything and I would really rather not seeing as how I have to be up at 4:30 and doing crap for work at 6am so it is not like I can take something now and be at work on time. And frankly it is not like I have a lot to tell you all.

I told you I blocked his number that is done. Did I tell you he was 22(heehee)
This is not what is keeping me up. I wish I knew what it is , it might be that the stress from last week has just moved into something else.

I need to get with my friends and see if they are still going to go on this cruise since it is no longer a paranormal cruise. I have got to get the hell out of dodge. I have not had anything more than a long weekend trip in years. My last actual trip was to Hawaii in 2005. Maybe the trip to Mardi Gras longer but I can't remember. It seemed short. And like It was forever ago. If none of the local girls still want to I think I have someone lined up to spend 5 nights at sea with me. It is a fellow blogger. If she decides not to go I might just have to plan a trip some where else but not sure of where I could go for the cost of the cruise. Any ideas? It must be more than a long weekend , at least 5 nights, and more than a 5 OR 6 hour drive. If it requires a plane trip that's cool too. But then I am still in this wait and see mood. My goal is to try and get some answers this week.

Ouice Cream

I didnt get any ouice cream yesterday. Home made ice cream was always one of the best parts of the 4th of July. I am going to head to the DQ down the road it wont be the same but it will have to do. I could bake cookies and then put my ice cream in between the hot cookies. Yummy and then of course I could buy bigger pants.

I worked third last night which is not my norm. I am usually sound asleep as most grave yard shifts start so when I went in to work after ten last night I was already for bed. I slept after getting off this morning for about 3 hours plus the one hour nap I got yesterday that is 4 hours of sleep in about 33 hours. I am a fucking bowl of sunshine Right now. I am also trying to stay awake for another 3 hours or so. If I go to sleep now I will wake up at Midnight and that sure wont do me any good. SO if you are lucky and I stay awake much longer there is no telling what I might say so now is your chance in the throws of sleep deprivation to ask me anything. What have you always wanted to know? Now is your chance to catch me with my guard down.
