WOW! What a weekend!

Saturday morning, I got to relax. Get my nails done, got a pedicure, got a couple of rolls of film developed, and went and bought a new chair massager for my chair at work (works GOOODDD!!) Then I came home and decided to TRY to get back to my scrapbooking. I had taken a couple of pics of my rose bushes that morning to finish out a roll of film, and decided to use my new Scrapmuse kit and get an easy layout done. It was fun, and I'm happy with the result (see roses layout below).

Today, we slept in! hehe I got to relax again and create another scrapbooking layout. (see the butterfly layout below). Then we went to Charlie's for a burger. Now I get to watch all our Sunday shows, and get myself mentally ready for work! ;-)

Ooops . . forgot about my own blog!

I've not been feeling too well as of late. When I work at Southwest Airlines, I had a really ergonomic cube. Keyboard tray, good chair, right height, etc. Well, here at Laidlaw I have an old leftover desk, and I've been having some problems adjusting. First it was my lower back. Got a lumbar pillow, and now that's fixed. Then it was tax season, and my TMJ flared up. Now it's my right shoulder (my mouse arm). I'm on Soma and advil. Yesterday, I went to the doctor and he gave me an adjustment which helped. I need to schedule my free massage at Avante that Clint won me. But, I did go to Walmart yesterday to get a back massager. It helps. Next thing I need is the adapter for my massage chair. I can't find it. If I can't get a replacement at Radio Shack, I'll look for a new chair or one of those massage pads.

Exciting Evening

Sitting here watching Pulp Fiction and surfing the net at 10pm on a Saturday. MAN . . . I'm getting old. Not that I WANT to do something different, but life used to be a lot more exciting. LOL

I actually did get a lot done today though. I made my famous chicken salad (with apples and pecans). MAN, it was good. Took a short nap this afternoon so that I might be able to stay up late.

Well . . . gotta go do laundry. Later
