The kids are back in school: I'm headed to relaxation

It's Tuesday, Jan 8th, and I have not had a day to myself for weeks. I'm sneaking out to have a foot massage. In the ethnic area of town, one can get an hour massage by the Chinese Royal Foot Massage for $25 ("Goodbye Spa Sydell, Hello Buford Highway!"). For an hour, I can sit and have tea, listen to Chinese music, and have my legs and feet soaked, buffed, rubbed and they even include a head massage! Note the wild hairdo in the photo- forgot to straighten it after the massage! Oh, Well, this blog is supposed to be real life, so I'm sure this won't be the first unglamorous photo! I was SO RELAXED. have my own time back during the school hours...after this it was back to reality: clean the den, get the tree out of the house, pack up Christmas decorations, etc....and then go to work for 8 hours (that's the hard part!). Who ARE these women that eat "bon bons" while the children are in school, I wonder?!


  1. An hour of bliss for $25? Where do I sign up?

  2. Sign me up too! How much weight have you lost? Looking good.

  3. sounds like heaven! I remember the hour long foot massage we had in Changsha.. for a whole $8! it was awesome!
