I had to work today so I scheduled an appointment to use my microdermabrasian gift certificate while I was out there. I got in to the room and she told me how to wear the velcro towel--don't laugh, I wish someone had given my little sister and I lessons like this before we made fools of ourselves at a spa trip a year or so ago! I got underneath the nice warm blankets, put my hair up and started to relax. She massaged my face and I was on the verge of falling asleep. Then the MDA started. It wasn't that bad, a little uncomfortable until I got used to it, but not bad at all. It was the step afterwards where they rid you of blackheads and whiteheads that about killed me. Instead of being on the verge of sleep I was on the verge of tears! Then she went back to the relaxing stuff again and all was well.
My face is a little red, but it sure feels better. Of course I had to buy new products to use on it and I need to schedule another session in 4 weeks.
Has anyone ever used one? Are they worth the money? So tempting as I see the results of those that follow the program. My doctor recommended a program but that costs money too. Maybe I should just go get certified to be one, can't be anymore expensive, just more time consuming. Of course I still want to be a paralegal--maybe? (I need your input on that Jess about the job and the program) If only I could figure out what I am supposed to be when I grow up....
Junior went to his first three hours at hourly daycare today and had a ball. He loved every minute of it, scarfed down his food and was ready to take a nap when we showed up. I brought him home and he napped for two hours. Tomorrow he is going for a longer period of time since I have to work, but I am sure he will be fine. He's a great little guy, just busy busy busy.
The local theatre is putting on The Full Monty next week and they are offering tickets one night to military families. I got two thinking that DH and I could go, but our moms are both out of town so there goes our evening babysitters. My friend that I would take just had a baby so I guess I will go alone. How sad is that! I'll be the person in the back of the theatre trying not to look like the loser, lol.
Yesterday DH and the children went over to his parent's house so that they could help change out the bedding for the pups. I stayed home and did laundry...it was so peaceful....but I digress. The puppies are growing fast and are going to be so pretty, but huge. Anyone want one or two or three?
I finally ordered a computer armoire after someone came to my door and saw my current method of the ottoman wedged in with the computer chair wedged in with the play pen wedged in with the chair. It worked most of the time though! I wonder what Junior will do with all his new found time since besides playing with the basket of unmatched socks his favorite pasttime is to try to find new ways to get to the computer.
We have survived four year long deployments--one to Bosnia and three to Iraq. We have been married for almost 17 years and have three children--Em, Abs, and Junior. Gunner is currently deployed for the 5th time to Afghanistan. We are fast approaching the year mark, and then we will focus on the prize--retirement!
