Feast or famine? That's the cycle of my life on so many levels. I have had a feast the last week, socially. I have had lunch with many different friends, far and near, and lovely visits with several friends I have not seen in years.

I have the tendency to get lost in my job/life and not pick my head up and look around. I neglect my friends, myself, my personal life. I find myself living in a tight little circle of work-home-sleep-work. It's not healthy. And, it amazes me that my friends still remember me and like me. I am endeavoring to be a better friend this year...truly I am...and it's a gift to myself...but I hope my friends will enjoy it as well. I hope I can stick to that.

On Sunday I went antique browsing and thoroughly enjoyed it. I do not need another thing in my house, but I do love to look. I love writing desks and library tables, hutches and enameled kitchen tables, side chairs, jewelry, books, glass...I have a thing for green and blue glass. I can spend many hours looking.

Monday I spent with my friend Jeannine who lives in Florida. It was so great to spend time with her. She is a very key part to who I am today...she is the person who taught me how to drive and so much more. I promised to scan and send her pictures from the summer of 1973. We took a mega road trip that summer which we reminisced about and laughed about. So yesterday I pulled out my old photo albums and scanned and send them off. I had a great time looking through these old albums. I haven't looked at them for many years. Damn, I looked good in the 70's.

Today I am being very good to myself...I am having a massage. I love and really need massage. I am fortunate that I have found a great masseur. She has great rates, too.

Hey new friends...treat yourself to a massage soon.

As someone who has received therapeutic massage for many years, and as a massage therapist, I could not agree with you more that it will help you in every way possible - by stirring your blood, warming up your muscle attachments, providing you with an hour of peace on the table and a chance to check in with yourself, to come into your body and into sensation. I believe in massage!!

So why are you surprised your friends still like you? My goodness, what's not to like?

feast or famine...chicken or feathers...that is the story of my husband's father's life and that's what I think of when I hear those phrases. Sounds like you are having a really nice few days right now.

Ohhhhh myyyyyy, a massage sounds grrreeeaaattttt! it's been too long since I had one.

I'm a big collector of blue glass too! I can't get enough, although my cupboards are very full.

I totally understand getting lost in work and the next think you know it's months since you've seen your friends. Time just seems to fly.
