Ah. spa!

Yesterday was almost totally a great day! A friend of mine celebrated my 50th by booking two spa treatments for my old, tired bones. First I had the most fabulous hydrotherapy treatment … citrusy steam, scrub and shower for all-over moisturizing. Then we broke for lunch, followed by the most delicious Swedish massage -- important for my poor, tragic, over-moused/over-clicked shoulder. It was wonderful! Pampering, food, and conversation combined left me feeling very zen.

Which was a good thing, because while I was being pampered and fed, an ice storm was taking place outside. The roads and rails were all screwed up. It took me 45 (so uneventful I don't even recall them) minutes to get downtown and 2 1/2 (my feet were soaked and it was so cold on the platform) hours to get home.

My mantra all the way was: "Ah, spa! Ah, spa!"
