My Life

I figured out I haven't been posting because so much of my life is the same thing everyday and I think everyone would be bored silly with it. I am still in school and loving it. We started Cranial Sacral Therapy, Hydro Therapy Treatment, Professional Development 2, and Anatomy 2. Cranial is nothing like I thought it was going to be. Don't get me wrong it is good just not what I had thought it would be at all. Hydro Therapy is fun. We work with heat/cold. I had a ice massage this past week , it was very cold but felt so good when it was done. Then on Wednesday in class we were short one student for teaming up so we had three on our team. I got a massage by two people and it was awesome. I felt so good when I was done but then I had to give a massage and I was still relaxed that I am afraid it wasn't one of my better ones. We then dipped our hands in paraffin wax. My hands where so soft, it was great.
In Anatomy we are learning muscles now and the boney landmarks to go with each of them. I must say that our bodies are totally AMAZING! There is so much that has to happen for us to just move one single part of our body. God was such a terrific designer when he made us. WOW!! I constantly learn new things about how things function and just love anatomy class.
In Professional Development we are learning how to make a massage resume' and working on interview skills.
Clinic is going well. I am enjoying working on the public and have met many wonderful people. Striving to get my five massages in every Saturday till I graduate. So far so good.
The family is doing well. Keeping busy with life, work and school. Dallas got a job at Fry's and seems to be enjoying it.
Tonight is the last time that Mars will be able to be seen till 2012 so I am doing a themed dinner and bought Mars candy bars to go out and look at it tonight. Corny but fun!
So this is my life right now. Busy, learning, studying and squeezing in some fun now and again.
Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Happy Pink Saturday

Happy Pink Saturday! Being that I am gone from 6 am till after 3 on Saturdays for clinic I decided to finally post, and post early.
The large round thing is a bolster for under the legs while doing massages. The front one is a childrens bolster that my friend Sylvia bought for me.

This is my sweet little granddaughter Naima Fay. The childrens bolster is bigger than her.
This is Naima at a week old.
This is Naima in training for taking over my spot in the future.
I know there is no pink in this but Talmage is so cute I couldn't resist.
I hope everyone is having a great week and will have a wonderful weekend. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Filling In The Gaps

 On Wednesday after my last final for this semester E'lyse, Gabby and I drove to Globe to meet up with Coco, Kyle and their kiddos. We went to pick up Coco, Talmage and Naima to come stay with us for a while. Kyle had to work so he will be coming down on Friday night to join them. It has been fun having them here with us. The children are so sweet. Talmage has been a blast to have hanging out with me, taking a nap with me and fixing his hair when I am fixing mine. What a funny little man he is.
 I will be on my 3rd week of clinic this Saturday. I am enjoying clinic and the experience of working on the public. My goal is to hit the 21 weeks with 5 people each week. We have to give massages to at least 4 people each week, this is the requirement.
 School has been a roller coaster of fun, emotional stress and learning. All in all it has been a wonderful experience so far. I am loving anatomy and learning all the body parts and how the body works. Lab is amazing and such a learning experience to see all the muscles and how they fit together. This helps us as massage therapist be able to work on clients more effectively.
 We start new classes this coming week. They are Cranial Sacral Therapy, Hydrotherapy, Professional Development 2, and Anatomy 2. Love learning new things and being able to put them into practice.
 I have been fighting with a flu or cold this week. It started last Friday at a study session I just knew it was coming on. I have been taking all my Zicam, Airbourn and Cold Calm to help get rid of it and alleviate the symptoms of the illness. Giving massages with a runny nose is NOT cool! Sniff sniff So I am on the mend at about 60% or better.
 So now it is Friday evening. My head is finally feeling relief from the pressure I have had all day. Using the Neti Pot and sleep mixed with a little sinus massages (given by yours truly) it is definitely better.
 Too bad it waited till night time I have been a little grumpy all day due to it.
 So tonight I decided to post early for Pink Saturday so that will be coming in the next half hour or so. Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Life Is Just Flying By

I can't believe that it has been over a month since I last updated my blog. I have been a very bad blogging gal.
School & studying are so time consuming that it leaves very little time to do my blogging. I get up at 4:30 and do chores, start studying and get the rest of my things ready for the day oh and also pack Alan & my lunches.
Coco gave birth to her sweet little princess Naima Fay. She and Baby Ni are doing great.
Naima Fay was born February 20th 2010
at 11:32 p.m.
weighing 6 lbs 3 oz
19 inches in length.
Isn't she just beautiful! She is the most precious thing since Talmage.
Coco and Naima

I do love being a grandma. Just wish we lived closer together.
So the last 2 Sundays we have driven up to Pinetop to see the little family. Way to quick of a trip for me.

I am working on Saturday mornings doing my internship at clinic at the school. I have met some wonderful people. I truly love giving massages.
This past Friday we had a study session at the school for our anatomy final and everyone was sneezing. Then it hit me I started to feel like I was getting sick. So I started all the precautions to avoid it. On Saturday morning woke up not feeling great but went to clinic did my 5 massages and afterwords felt like I had hit a brick wall. I came home and was freezing. So here is how it all is being played out. I am fighting getting sick. My body hurts all over, even my eyelids ache. I have 3 finals this week and need to study. So I will do what I can and hope that what I have learned from the beginning of school till now has sunk in to where I am able to recall it all. I won't stress and I will do fine. I have to keep positive.
Hope everyone is doing fine. Missing reading all the wonderful blogs of you my bloggy friends. Hugs, Bobbi Jo
