Thoughts From The Massage Table

Anyone that knows me will tell you that I have a really hard time relaxing.

A glass or three of wine usually does the trick, as does a long walk, sitting down for more than five minutes at a time, a long car ride, as long as I'm NOT the one driving and there is ZERO traffic and a massage.

I LOVE getting massages so I was thrilled when my husband told me that he booked us spa appointments for the day before Valentine's day. It had been over eight months since my last massage and I was really looking forward to it!

While it was very relaxing, my mind was in a million other places... here are my thoughts from the massage table:

Did I remember to lay out Lucas' jammies and overnight diaper for the sitter? Oh, why would I need to do that, she has put him to bed before.

I wish I had had more time on the treadmill before coming in here. Oh well, there's always tomorrow.

No, tomorrow, there will be no time for exercise. Music class followed by play date...

Dang it! Why didn't I pee first?

At least I brushed my teeth. Whew!

Ouch, ouch, ouch, ahhhhh....

Why don't I get massages more often?!

I have to remember to drink more water tomorrow.

I should drink more water anyway.

I can't believe I haven't had a Diet Coke in six days!

Okay, that really hurts! What is this lady doing to me? I don't think my leg is meant to bend that way.

Shoot, I forgot to call my mother-in-law back. Again. When was it that she left that message? Oh yes, the day I took Lucas up to LA to visit Leah. Over a week ago. Gulp.

I hope Leah's interview goes well tomorrow. But, Malibu? That would be a hellish commute. I guess for the right job...

How do massage therapists do this every day? Touching so many people's feet would gross me out.

I hope the pants I brought to wear to dinner fit. I can't remember the last time I wore them.

Did I bring the right bra?

What should I order for dinner?

That tickles.

Stop wincing.

Stop wincing.

I really wish I had peed first.

What is that heavenly smell? Is it lavender? Jasmine? Hmm... do I dare ask her? No, I do NOT want to engage!

Besides, I'm suppose to be relaxing.

Ha ha ha! Too funny! The mind can't ever just shift into relaxation mode, can it? Unwinding is a slow process!

Would you believe I've only had ONE massage in my entire life? When the lady told me to be sure to drink PLENTY of water afterwards b/c of toxins & impurities leaving my body, I thought she was full of crap. WRONG! I did not drink enough water following the massage & ended up feeling like I was hit my car the next day.

Oh, this is totally me! I just can't let go of my thoughts and rambling lists of things to do...even when there's an awesome massage going on! I think I've only had maybe 3, and they are all kinds of awesome.

But yeah, can't turn off the head.

Oh this is so me, I can never relax, I try so hard to do it that the whole experience is ultimately more stressful.

So funny. My mind is always running with thoughts about what I need to be doing, what I could do better, what I should do that I really don't think I know how to relax anymore. Despite all of the thoughts in your head I hope you enjoyed your massage.

I'm this way too...and if the worst happens...and I have to fart...there is no relaxing during that massage!

Wow, so much for relaxing! Haha, that's a lot of thoughts in just what, an hour?

I never ever seem to be able to relax either! Don't wait 8 months till your next massage though!

My brain tends to be like that too, but a massage usually does the trick. I usually fall asleep and try not to snore ;)
