It's been 10 years since your last massage!!?! Man, they are must haves for me. I babysit kids to afford occasional massages!

Sounds like you have had a lot of transitions over the last year, and you are still smiling! Keep it up! Excited about your #3!

My chiro that I used to go to has a massage therapist and it's only $30 for the hour! Now that I babysit though, I can't go because she only works during the day. So I have gone to Massage Envy ($39 for an hour for first timers) with Korey Dade. He can go very deep if you want him too! I'll be sore too but off brand icy hot is grrrreat! I love the cottonwood experience though! I want to steal a robe!!

Hi, Michelle: Is it your birthday? Okay--I don't think I could live with the drums! So what are your plans for after the baby is born? Going back to work? Staying home with little one?

Hubby and I think we may have bought a house! Just outside of Edmond-6 acres. Oh my, what are we thinking!!

Take good care. Everything at the school is just as usual. Nothing new to report! D
