I got a massage today. It was a gift from Squid. For no other earthly reason than that she is an extraordinarily generous woman. For months now, I've been savoring the knowledge that any time I want I could go get a massage. I decided it was the perfect way to kick off Mothers Day Weekend (which usually is a bittersweet more-sad-than-happy occassion for me). And now I am incredibly relaxed. The massage therapist loosened all the knots in my back and feet ("wow, you sure carry a lot of tension here" she exclaimed at one point). Used lavender oil and some therapeutic ointment that warmed up my back. Aahhhhh.....

what a nice girl that Squid is... I am so happy that you got a massage. You might be sore tomorrow though! Happy Mother's Day to you. I get the sad more than happy part, but I just want to tell you that I think you are really a devoted, passionate, worth-emulating kind of mom. So thanks for being an example.
