I need a massage


I have been so wound up all day today, ever since it hit me that I have less than 3 full days until we leave for California. It’s ridiculous. I’m sitting here at the computer with my shoulders continually scrunched up. The perpetual shrug. I keep having to remind myself to relax and then I’m scrunched back up again within ten seconds. I need to do something to unwind but I’m not sure what that would be. I think I’m most in a dither about packing. Even though I have two full days left after this I have had the nagging feeling all day that I should be getting everything together TODAY. Perhaps it’s because I have some other things I have to do the next two days (doctor’s appointment, Madalyn’s school program, parent/teacher conference). Probably the best thing I could do would be to go ahead and throw most of the stuff in the suitcases today and maybe that will soothe my psyche enough to where I can relax.
You would think I’d never traveled before! Honestly!


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. What you need, short of a massage, is a long, hot hot hot shower. If you haven’t already, treat yourself to one of those multi-setting shower heads and put it on the setting that drills your aching neck and back with hard jets of hot water. Then just stand under it til the hot water runs out. Repeat as needed. I find this very helpful when my stress builds up in my body. Anyway, hope you have a good trip!
