I went to my new acupuncturist today. Really like her. Really like the set up. It is East Nashville Community Acupuncture. Basically, picture a whole bunch of recliners, relaxing music, and needles and you have a pretty good picture of what is going on. It took longer than my normal session but wasn’t as intense.
She doesn’t twist the needles to find the “chi”. She just inserts them. So there isn’t the intense electrical charge I typically feel during a session. Therefore, this session, although longer was fairly relaxing instead of stimulating, so to speak. It was funny though, at the end, she asked me if I was “ever able to relax.” Everyone else was all kicked back in their recliners, several people snoring loudly. I was upright (feet up) and awake with my eyes open the whole time. I was relaxed though! I promise! Next time, I’m taking Mr. T’s Nook because it seems the most relaxing thing I could do.
Tennessee Game Days is THIS weekend! Can you believe it! I’m so excited and looking forward to it. Not only do I get to stay at a she-she hotel for 3 days but I also get to see this project that we’ve been working on for a year come to fruition. Oh, and I get to PLAY GAMES! Yeah!
Then we have a week and then we go to France. We bought Mr. T. new “France” pants last night. Ha! There was a song when I was growing up that went, “Oh, the ants in your pants sure make you dance. They make you jump. They make you prace. They make you want to fly to France! The ants sure make you dance. Hoe down.” It was off the Teddy Bears Picnic cassette. Anyway, I digress. It is hard to be excited about something that *seems* far way. Even if it is 13 days away.
Oh, and my RE fired me when I told him I didn’t like the way his office handled my last miscarriage. Yeah. Cool. And I quote, “We really pride ourselves on our relationship building. I’m sorry. I guess we will just have to wait to hear what they (new RE) say,” and then he walked out of the room. Nice, huh? He agreed I needed an ultrasound to see if I had cysts and then left the room. But, I’m on CD2 now so it doesn’t *really* matter. I think we are going to do 1 last rogue Femara cycle. No temping. No herbs. No obsessing. We’ll be in France for O so we will just do what we wish and hope that this is what people mean when they quip, “Just relax.” 😀
Mr. T has begun running a GURPS 24 (Jack Bauer) campaign for several of our friends and me. It is excellent! I’m playing an Arabic woman who is the group’s driver and on-the-scene interrogator. We start tomorrow. It should be interesting. The other folks in the group are playing characters with names like Dylan Province, Mark Mendoza, Mitch Connor, and Rock Thunderbottom. Okay, I confess, Rock Thunderbottom I just made up but there was another name that just screamed government espionage/intrigue!
Oh, if you get a change you should check out the film, 12 Stones…it is wonderful. Then you should give $10 to Heifer International. Yep. Just $10. That’s all it takes to change a life. For more info check out www.heifer.org. I’m trying to plan a showing here in town…wish me luck!
