Today was a run around day even though it didn't feel like it. I woke up late - so nice to hit snooze three times without worry! Then I had to haul my butt to the gym for a massage. I've never had a full out massage before. It was nice. I think once I get more comfortable I'll ask for a little deeper pressure. My muscles were so tense that even a moderate pressure gave me some ow! Need to do more massages and/or more yoga. Of course I still had some vestiges of DOMS too.

Rest of the evening is going to be quiet. Going to watch the only one of two shows I watch these days - the Suze Orman show. I like the Can I Afford It segment. Otherwise she kind of annoys me. The other show I watch? Bridezilla reruns on Sunday afternoon. What can I say? I'm a klassy, klassy girl.
And to keep the streak alive - today I am thankful for...new experiences. New shoes, massage, new recipes - trying new things out are fun!
