Back to School Relaxation for Mom



The kids went back to school last week and as usual I had mixed emotions. We had such a fun summer and I enjoyed hanging out with them (mostly) and all of the exciting activities and vacations we crammed into those short weeks. On the other hand, living with frat house hours was exhausting. It was definitely time to get back to a routine.

So, trying to look on the bright side, I sent all my kids off to school last week and now I have my days to myself (you know, I can do laundry and watch my shows without interruption & after I clean the kitchen it can stay clean for 5-6 hours). It seemed like the perfect time to pamper myself. I got on the phone and scheduled an appointment for a massage at Massage Envy.

You can tell I needed a break. Getting five kids ready for school is no easy feat. All the supplies! All the clothes and shoes! Hello Kitty backpacks aren't cool in third grade. Dealing with the emotional teens and their new schools. Open Houses! PTA! You know the drill. I'm pooped (and now I sound like my grandma).

But I started to feel more relaxed as soon as I walked into Massage Envy. I got a fabulous massage that focused right on the places in my back, shoulders and neck where I store up all the tension. I could close my eyes and forget about all the stressful things at home and just enjoy the moment. Just enjoy the opportunity to be spoiled and pampered. I felt so much better immediately.

The kids are back to school and it's just the perfect time to take a moment for yourself. Do something you love. Take a break. Visit a friend. Go out for lunch or get your nails done. Go to a matinee movie. Spend time at the temple. Or give Massage Envy a call and schedule your appointment for a massage and some relaxation time. You deserve it.
