...is that we are totally dependent on them in order to keep us SANE.
What modern convenience is every massage therapist TOTALLY dependent on?
Yes, you guessed it, our washer went kaput today and guess what else? It's going to be over a week before the repair peeps can get here. A WEEK! Whoop-dee-freakin'-doo! A WEEK of running to the public laundromat with the sheets from work (which I got back to today - I'm still a wee bit stuffed up, but not too bad).
Oh well, at least it wasn't a month.
You know, when I was young and I was living by myself I used to do all my laundry at the laundromat - now it just bothers me. I'm turning into a grumpy old woman!
And yes, that's a picture of a dude in a washer. Don't ask me why he's there - I don't know. Does anyone know what really goes through the mind of a man?
I worked on New Years Day and I was the only one working in the location I work in. I was busy - five and a half hours of massage and I worked 'til 8 that night. I thought I may as well work rather than sitting around the house watching T.V., plus I need the money.
One of my regular clients and I were talking about new year resolutions and I said that I had the same one that I did last year that I never stuck to - to reduce the girthiness of my stomach, work out, stop eating rubbish etc. She told me that she heard good advice on on the radio which was: "Don't carry anything into 2010 that prevented you from growing in 2009"
I like that. It made me think. It even made me think about the reasons WHY I didn't stick to going to the gym. Also, I have plans that sometimes don't work out because I get bored with stuff easily. Hmmmmmm..............that whole self analysis thing is sometimes good.
I also think I'm going to keep a wee book of "Things I've learned from clients". But then, will I procrastinate with that too?
