song: Amber ... 311

Sweet Orion and I napping, a rare sight around here lately...yaaaaaawn..
I have recently started working again (for a paycheck) doing massage. My hiatus has been a while since, well, before kids. I have missed doing bodywork, the only time I did any over the past two years or so was on close friends and family. I am officially working at the Hoffman's Chiropractic office, working on their patients two days per week. While doing this type of work is not my first choice, it does allow me to help pay for Leilani's "school" come October. I see patients in 30 minute increments for about 4 hours, so not too terrible. I am also seeing people privately at our home for sessions (which I prefer). All of this massage makes me love my Craniosacral work even more. I find myself frustrated in massage sessions sometimes because the patient really needs more gentle work, rather than the "seek and destroy" deep work they think they need. My instincts are to do the Cranio work, but my paycheck comes from the deep tortuous stuff. :( My ultimate goal is to move completely into a Biodynamic Craniosacral practice within 5 years.
On top of adding a massage schedule into my full time SAHM days (and Craniosacral practice sessions) Leilani and Orion have decided to boycott sleeping, what seems to be all day and night. I think Orion is teething with an earache (and was awake from 11:30pm-1am) and Leilani is just 2 and a half. She drags out bedtime for an hour or more, then cries and screams a gabillion times before she finally stays in bed and falls asleep, ugh. All of this added together... makes me tired. Just plain tired. Someday I will look back fondly at these times, but right now I am just tired.

I have a similar photo I love of myself passed out with the C-man! We are having the same 2.5yr old sleep issues! Did you see my post on the msg. board? Got some good advice! Oh and I am sure you thought of this but since O recently had an EI maybe that is bothering him and not teething. Either way sorry you are such a tiered mommy!

That is "tired" not tiered!

I think I'm one of those people who thinks they need the deep torturous stuff. Just take a rolling pin and run it from my head to my toes!

I need to experience Cranio work though.

Can't wait to use my session gift certificate with you!!

Thats one of the reasons I stopped doing bodywork. I LOVE your Cranio stuff and get a LOT out of it.
Hugs to you and your tired body.
Sweet sweet shot :)
