My funny evening.

Yesterday I had a massage.  It was the 2nd in a series of three.  I have these amazing knots on my back and shoulders.  To me it feels like giant cysts under my skin, but it’s muscle.  So, my new BFF Janelle started working on them a couple of weeks ago. 

Last night was better.  Still a bunch of knots, but they seem to start releasing easier. This was not your standard  ooo’ing and ahh’ing massage where you just sit there in glorious relaxation.  No, I do not do things in that kind of normal fashion. We laughed, a LOT.

As always happens in this new era of communication we kept talking about Facebook. Then she started rubbing my leg and I had to tell her that I have a hurt knee.  (It started hurting a couple of months ago and I can’t seem to get it to stop, I think I keep rehurting it.  It was kind of cool because she could actually feel the muscle that was injured) She asked if I would try their new Willo thingy.  It’s a light & heat device that sits on your injured part.  It goes in 25 minutes sessions and that didn’t really work out with our massage timing. 

So this is how we ended up at the point  when we were done I was; sitting in a slippery chair without any pants on, with towels underneath me while I was covered in oil, with a machine strapped to me knee with flashing red lights and heat pulsing, while my LMT sat next to the massage table on her laptop “friending” me on Facebook.  At which point we discovered four mutual friends.  Then she started chatting with a lawyer friend because I believe I am going to need one, (though I have now found out that the person I am using for other things, also does this, I’ll be talking to him this afternoon hopefully) while also chatting with one of our mutual friends who turns out to be someone I use to work with.  Hilarity ensued.

What a strange but really enjoyable night!

Then this morning, back to reality.  Ice Storm coming down, sick in ways that I don’t want to discuss because of the huge amount of lactic acid flooding my system, feeling out of sorts because I agreed not to ride my bike today to let my knee heal ( I think a part of me thinks I will immediately gain 35 pounds back if I slip up), and working, working and working.

Tonight I am going to dinner with my beautiful daughter for her birthday and various assorted family members. 🙂

  1. I hope the massage is effective. I have no need for massage but am getting them weekly now (boyfriend) anyway. *proud, ridiculous grin* You will *not* immediately gain 35 pounds. Maybe take this time to focus on strength training of your arms, chest, back, and core?

  2. Ahh!  Sounds like so much fun.  Have a great time with your daughter!;

  3. I am so glad you had such a good evening! I hope all the treatments work everything out.  I think Bouree had a great suggestion.  Work on something else.  You really, really want to take care of that knee!You may be in store for some sunshine tomorrow.  We have some now.  And then some bitter cold.  It sounds like you got way more ice than we did.Happy Birthday to your daughter! Enjoy your evening together!

  4. have a great dinner tonight! I hope your knee heals quickly…I hate ever being in pain! I’m such a wuss x

  5. Let it heal… you’re gonna be right as rain !!!
