Jason and I had our couples massage yesterday. They had a room with two massage beds and we got our massages at the same time. Jason had never had a professional massage before and he really enjoyed it. I told my masseuse that I’d never had a deep tissue massage and was a bit concerned about it hurting. I said that my left shoulder/upper back had a knot in it and it’d been bothering me for a long time. When she was massaging me, she said that she didn’t really feel a knot where I’d described but that my neck was extremely tight and that was probably what was causing my shoulder pain. I have really bad posture and I am pretty sure that this is the reason that my neck was so tight. I have also been told (by a chiropractor that was doing free back checks at a previous job) that I have slight scoliosis. I think the masseuse went kind of easy on me because it really didn’t hurt that much. Although, today my upper back is tender to the touch!
After the massage, we were trying to decide where to go to dinner and I remembered that Jason had a gift certificate to Tamarind Seed. I think I’ve been to this restaurant three times and I have really enjoyed the food each time. I had some sort of white fish with a shrimp and basil topping.
After dinner, we met up for drinks with some friends at Amuse. Although we didn’t eat, their menu looked good. Our friends did eat, and I can safely say that this restaurant has good french fries! It’s a new spot and is definitely on our list to go back. After drinks, we ended up a party. One of my friend’s friends just moved into a house that was probably less than a mile from our house, so we decided that it’d be fun to stop by. I had a good time but somehow a bunch of Doritos found their way into my mouth. Funny how that happens. I have always had a soft spot for Cool Ranch Doritos.
We were up and at ’em again this morning looking at houses with our realtor. We looked at five properties. We didn’t like the first three. We were all about the fourth one at first. It was small, but very cute. However, when we saw the fifth house, we were in love with it. It was big, a 3/2, with a bonus room with a fireplace and a big backyard for Murphy. My thing with houses is that I’m all about location. I don’t want to move to the suburbs. At least not at this point in my life. I feel like right now, I have friends that live and do things in town, and while in five years I might not have that (or care about it), I do now. This house is kind of getting into the suburbs, but still pretty close in.
Murphy is eating his bed again. I think that those of you who said he is doing it for attention are right. Murph’s a blog hater.
The weather today has been craptastic, so I decided to do my long run tomorrow when it’s forecasted to be warmer out. I guess I have to go shower the dog with attention. And actually shower.
