Once Again A Blog Slacker

 There have been 2 major reasons that I have once again became a blog slacker. 1.) Time- heck I haven't had much time for too much other than school, study, sleep & eat. 2.) I felt like I was just going to be saying the same thing over and over. But when you practically live at your school what more can you say. But alas I was told encouraged  by my oldest that I should try updating my blog. So here I am thanks to Coco.
 Backing up to over a month ago I finally finished the Professional Program for the Massage Therapist. I graduated on August 13th. YEA!

  This is my class D-04-4

Sunday off from school and I started the Masters Program at the same school to become a Master Body Worker. This is only a 10 week program but very intense and may I say so AWESOME!! We only have 5 classes throughout this program of 217.5 hours of schooling.The classes are Hydrostone Therapy, Advanced Cranial Sacral Therapy, Advanced Eastern Paradigm, Functional Assessment, Kinesiology, and Myokinetic Techniques. The classes are so cool! I have always loved learning and this is a bonus it will make me a better therapist. Knowledge ROCKS!!
 Last week we had our first written final. It was for Hydrostone, I feel good about it and will find out soon how I did. Today we have our hands on final for the same class.
 I have to admit I tend to struggle with the memory of every word or term. This I am working on daily. Sometimes I feel like my brain is going to burst.
 One of my favorite classes so far is Advanced Cranial Sacral Therapy. We have been learning about unwinding. If anyone has questions about what it is I will explain about it in a future post, just let me know.
 We are in our 5th week of the 10 week program after today I am half way through. SWEET!
 There are only 2 campuses of ASMT that offer the Master Program so people come from all over to take the program. In my class we have 2 gals from Colorado and 2 from my home state Pennsylvania. To make a long story short the 2 girls from PA are living with our family. They were short on money, no car and I was worried about these sweet girls. So Alan and I talked about it that first week of the program and offered them to come live with us. We don't have a lot of money or space but we have fun and I think a good place to live. The girls names are Valerie (20) and Ashley (18). The kiddos all seem to get along and I have company to and from school.
 I am trying to get started on a exercise regimen that can fit in my schedule. Being that Alan started a new job he isn't up as early as I would like to exercise to have the time to get ready. I have a hard time hitting the treadmill in the morning before school plus with the house work, getting dinner prepared and trying to squeeze in some more study time I don't have much time in the am. By the time I get home at night I am about wiped out getting dinner on the table,clean up time, family time, study time and bath I run out of time if I want to sleep. he he So this is a slow work in progress.
 So this is my life in a blog shell. I will try to do better on keeping you up to date. If you have any questions leave me a comment I will be glad to answer. Take care! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

I get a monthly massage with a deep tissue masseuse and just love it. She always knows where the spots are that need NEED deep tissue, sugar. If I could, I'd adopt her!
