Yes! Massages are the best healthy form of stress relief. I had a wonderful relaxing massage today, given by Sharon. The massage has helped me release some of the tension and stress in my muscles. I have been under a lot of physical stress lately. Especially with all of the deep cleaning I have been doing around the house. Some people might say massages are expensive, I say they are worth every penny and I'm worth it. I have learned in the past few years I cant live without at least a few massages a year minimum. It is even worth it to share my punch card with my husband. Can you imagine how much it can help a relationship? It helps my relationship with my husband and I. I can't say our marriage is perfect, however massages release a lot of tension. Massages have saved me from pain & spending more time, & money at the doctors office. I personally would rather hand over my money to a massage therapist to help my sore muscles and relieve my headaches than to a docotrs office. It's not that I am against doctors at all, it's just that when my muscles hurt and are tight I get a massage. I know that some people with their health situation need to consult a doctor before getting a massage and I completely understand that (especially heart issues). Sharon at Magna Therapeutic Massage is a Great Massage Therapist and I would recommend her to anyone needing a massage.

Birthday Week

Isaac had a great Birthday, although it was quieter (less eventful) than some birthdays. Quiet is good, I've learned to appreciate less eventful days. Isaac started the day opening his most wanted present (another Pixel Chix). Isaac can't seem to get enough Pixel Chix. At Isaac's Preschool Class we passed out some of his favorite snacks (Chicken Nuggets and Chocolate milk). Isaac is quite unique when it comes to eating, that is why it is such an unusual birthday treat (Isaac doesn't eat Birthday Cake). After school he opened his last two presents ( a book and a Hullabaloo game). After dinner Isaac blew out his candles on his mini Birthday cake. We enjoyed eating his piece for him. After cake & Ice Cream we played Hulabaloo (sort of like Twister but not as difficult). Isaac cried when the day was over because he didn't want his birthday to end. Daddy had to miss out on most of Isaac's Birthday due to college & work ( that is why we didn't have anybody come over and join us).
On Friday Isaac & Brianna will have a combined party with some of their friends (we couldn't invite all of their friends due to the size of our house and having to keep the party inside). I have been deep cleaning all week trying to dejunk our home. The Party gave me a good excuse to get some work done. I am so worn out, I scheduled a massage tommorrow with my favorite massage therapist. If anybody needs a great massage I can refer them, she is great. I will be out of massages on my punch card after tommorrow, so I will purchase one after I get my taxes back. Anyway, Brianna's 7th birthday is on Tuesday. Looking back it's hard to believe she was the same girl I gave birth to. Brianna has changed so much, she used to be so cute and chubby, now she is so thin and pretty. Brianna is amazing, just like Lauren and Isaac, though very unique in her special ways.
