Yesterday, with lofty ambitions of making my food for the rest of the week, doing laundry, and cleaning house, I came home from work and the light bulb came on that hey, my Wednesday doesn't have to be routine! I listened to that light bulb (wait, what?) and reached into the cupboard to start "Operation Decompression" with a handful of dark chocolate acai-blueberry morsels, which are highly addicting gems of pure, tasty joy. They're not too bad for you, and they sure do wonders for one's mood.
And actually, if I'm being honest (definitely the theme of the week - SEE HERE), I started this "break free of routine" thing on Tuesday night, when I scheduled myself a massage for the next day, then drove to Herriman to laugh the night away with one of my besties. When my afternoons consist of errands, working out and napping, time with friends doesn't usually make the weekday cut.
So, Wednesday...mood-boosted by dark chocolate, I showed up at my massage at Healing Mountain Massage School, where you can get an hour with a student for $25, or with an licensed masseuse for $35. I love the new-agey atmosphere (they have a crystal shop! I'm not into those yet, but it looks cool!), and have always been impressed by the staff. When times are tight, I opt for a student, like last night, and enjoyed 50 minutes of touch. I am SUCH a touch person. I feel so loved and happy when being touched (I'm fortunate that Chris knows this about me). But it was one of those chatty massages, that I kind of feel are less relaxing, but sometimes, we ladies can't help gab at one another.
