Day of Pampering

Today I decided I was due a day of pampering. Well, as pampered as you can get when your just 3 days from being half way through a pregnancy. I started the morning with a prenatal massage. My lower back has been killing me for about a week. I hit the chiropractor last Saturday but it seemed to still be out of whack. Then two days ago I was on the floor playing with the kids and soon realized, too late, that the hard floor was really messing up the ole back. So Brandon gave me one of his massage appointments hoping that might help. I’ll know in a day or two if it worked to relieve some of the pain.
Next, I met Daddy and the kids out for lunch. Where it was decided that the entire family was due for some pedicure/manicure action. Nice addition to the day of relaxation. We were the only ones in the joint because the next snow storm is due any minute. So we let the kids run a muck and just took our time.
Unfortunately, now I need to pick up the house a bit. So the pampering is over. Oh, well. I bet I can get the hubby to pass on a few more of those massage appointments as the weeks go on. So until next time.
Oh, and I have been waiting for that infusion of second trimester energy to kick in but it seems to be keeping its distance this time around. I was talking to my Dad this morning and I think he put it best when he said, “Well, your pregnant and not in your 20’s anymore. The aches only get worse from here on out.” Yep, that just about sums it up.
