A pamper me day
May 11, 2011 7 Comments
Yesterday, I watched Laws of Attraction. Two divorce lawyers, with opposing views on what their roles are in this nasty end-of-a-marriage career, fall in love. There’s lots of twists, unique characters, and an Irish castle included! Score! Yes, romance is my sport of choice and I’ve always been a Pierce Bronson fan. Ed’s more into football and basketball.
After watching the DVD, I was off to an appointment with my daughter who is a massage therapist. The last time I had a massage was when she was still in school. There’s a big difference between being a client for students and being attended to by a professional. Wow. The massage was awesome, her gift to me.
I went straight from my massage to another daughters home. This one has managed restaurants and catered events. She hosted a small family dinner, in honor of Mother’s Day and my birthday later this month. I was fascinated to watch the cook in action and the chicken and pork were stuffed with apples, cheese and cornbread. Yum. After dinner there was a lively discussion about the wedding details for next month’s big event. The bride wants a wooded fairyland and the men in kilts. Score!
I’m not one to schedule activities that pamper me. It’s a flaw. I like to be engaged, involved, even if it is with the stories in my head. I need to be reminded to step back and receive being pampered from others. Otherwise my world view could get distorted. I might forget the romance game is as dynamic as shooting balls through hoops and a happy ending is more fun to me than kicking a pigskin through uprights.
Note to self: Add Irish castle into a future romance plot so onsite research is required. 🙂
