Mmm Massage

In my office, we have some nice perks. There are soda fountains in all the break rooms, and there is a gym upstairs. We’ve got reasonable internet access. Makes it nice when I don’t want to go out for lunch. Which since I carpool with my husband and he has the car, is most days. I’ve written all my blog entries from work so far. (Sorry I missed yesterday, just got busy with other things)
Today I took advantage of a new perk, the chair massage. Twice a week, a massage therapist comes in and sets up her things in a conference room. We pay $1 a minute to get a chair massage. Oh so very nice. I sprung for 20 minutes today. I really needed it. I am feeling much better now. My fingers are all tingly and my typing speed is suffering for it. At the moment though, I really don’t care. There is still a knot in my shoulder, but it’s not a big as it was. And I can turn my head without wincing. So I am going to consider that an improvement.
For anyone that does not already know, I’ve been in several car accidents (not my fault, apparently I am really unlucky). In all of them, my neck took the bulk of the injury. When I was in elementary school, I was doing flips in a moonwalk and got bounced in such a way that I landed on my head. All of this has resulted in degenerative disc disease between my C5 and C6 vertebrae (or neck in layman’s terms). I learned this in my x-rays from my last car accident which took place in November of 2006. We were hit in the passenger side door by an idiot that decided to make a u-turn while we were beside him. I was in the passenger seat. Like I said, I’m unlucky. My doctor told me there wasn’t anything I could do about it right now and gave me pain pills. Idiot. This is the age of the internet, information is only a few keystrokes away. I’ve yet to find a new doctor, but one thing that was recommended for DDD was massage therapy.

So I got a massage today. It was nice. Hopefully I will sleep better tonight.

Ack! I missed Monday

Ok, I hate Monday’s anyway, but I’m really trying to keep up with writing this. And then I see that most of my hits were from Monday. I’ll have to write something good to make up for it. I’ll find something worth writing about. Maybe you’ll get a bonus entry for Tuesday! I actually have to do my day job for now though.
Oh yeah! By the way——Warning! Shameless Advertising—-it is time for fundraising for my son’s elementary school. They’ve caught up with the times and started online sales. Follow this link

Inaugural Blog

Well here it is, without fanfare nor shattering of champagne, my blog. Carefully pouring champagne into glasses and proposing some type of toast is far more my style anyway. No one wants to clean sticky alcohol and glass shards from their web page. Especially one so nice, new, and clean.

So I suppose I should start by telling you something about myself. I’m a wife and mother. I have a full time job doing accounting. I am starting a web design business on the side. Feel free to visit AƱoranzas de Costa Rica to see a work in progress. I’ve also set up hastonline.com mostly to keep up with family and friends. That’s very likely how you found yourself here. Someday soon there will be a site devoted to my design endeavors.

I don’t really know what I will wind up writing about here. I’m sure I will write about what it is like starting my home business. I’ll write about my family. I may even decide I need to blog about the news. I won’t promise that you will always be entertained, but I’m not holding a gun to your head making you read it either.

All that said, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the time you spend here.
