I've got an "itis"

I've been wanting to deny it but lately it's been biting me hard. In the thumb, in the shoulder, and in the elbow. I have crackberry thumb. I hold tension in my shoulders. I'm sore!

So here I am typing - bad idea. I need to rest it apparently. Rest my whole arm. Yea, right. Years ago I switched my main computer's mouse to the left side because I'd done too much "clicking" on my right side. That solved it.

But this year when I was doing the Thai Massage course I must have injured my thumb and then my computer and berry use didn't let it heal. I've also been doing sun salutations on a carpeted surface and there's a new thick carpet on the riser in the Earth Room at Rama Lotus, which for sure does not help.

My doctor even gave me a prescription for a massage! I have health benefits now, so I figure I'll use 'em. If I can only find time to make an appointment...

I made 6 massage appointments for the month of December, including one on the morning of New Year's Eve! This is the time when I need them the most and I have that many left on my benefits, so........
Talk about spoiling myself, but I usually come out of massage feeling almost as good as when I come out of yoga class.
BTW - I bought a car on Saturday. I will pick up a 2009 Nissan Versa tomorrow at 6:30pm. Weird.

Thanks for the reminder of how good a massage can feel!

What colour is your car? And I figure it's standard. I asked on Friday if you'd got one yet but the answer was negative.

I can hardly wait to hear all about it! And what's happening to the old Honda?

I'm still in love with my car. It feels so good to drive. Or just to sit in in a parking lot really...

The Versa is Daytona blue, a bright blue much like the Honda. It's a 6-speed manual, 6 gears plus reverse. It's very big inside which is what sold us over the Mazda. Old Blue is temporarily retired in the driveway but will make her appearance on Used Ottawa. Hopefully, some kid will buy her and give her some TLC.
