The Guys' Rules.....

Carrie sent this to me. I thought it was good (except I don't like sports and I cry as much as any woman) The Guys' Rules..... At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down. Finally, the guys' side of the story. (I must admit, it's pretty good.) We always hear "the rules" From the female side. Now here are the rules from the male side. These are our rules! Please note... these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE! 1. Men ARE not mind readers. 1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down. We need it up, you need it down. You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down. 1. Sunday sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be. 1. Shopping is NOT a sport. And no, we are never going to think of it that way. 1. Crying is blackmail. 1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work! Strong hints do not work! Obvious hints do n

Card Readings

I was feeling down today, and did not know what if anything to write about so I did some angel card readings for myself, and an OH card reading. These are basically just random picture / word associations that are layed out in prayer and meditation, and then a question asked to spirit from the heart. I used Carrie's angel cards first and I used the same basic question for both sets. Question: Where does Carrie and my path lead from here? What do I need to know for myself? Will I be alright. Will we find love again? I was prompted to lay out 5 cards. 1) FOCUS: -(Immediate to past 3 months) Focus on self, situation and changes in life. Focused on things important to me, awakened and began to be my true self again. 2) SERENITY: (immediate past to present) Serenity gives clear thoughts, clear mind about what I am supposed to be doing now, answer to prayers, already knowing what path lies ahead and feeling at peace about it. 3) ABUNDANCE: (very near future) Excpect changes in abundant l

Chilling Out

It's starting to feel like Winter already, been dreay for a week and we finally got some sun, but dang its getting cold out. The cold air isn't help my back which I recently must have pulled a nerve helping my uncle move some heavy things around, but the housework is about 95 percent done and looking really nice. We have our new floor in, and he just needs to put up the border around the floor. It feels much nicer in the living room, hopefully someday we can get the kitchen and bedroom done too, and then the basement- I really would like a nice computer area, I've been stuck here typing in the kitchen for months on a very uncomfortable kitchen chair, my butt bone is paying the price for that. ;( Tuesday I have my first test at school. I got around 90percent on my pre-test quiz of 50 questions, and they say the quiz is harder so I should do well on the test, plus I did my anatomy coloring book for extra +5 onto the test ;) Thursday myself and the other only two guys in t

Day 4 - The Back :)

We just now started massaging the back at school, and Thursday I have my first quiz already. The back is a lot more work and things to memorize, and its a workout too. I had got my back done first by my class partner and by the time she was done I was totally relaxed and pain free, but then came time for me to massage and by the time I was done my back was hurting again. I really gotta get used to proper stance and using the whole body to motion instead of just the arms. I really worked up a sweat and for the next few weeks here that's all will be doing is back and feet massages for 2 hours each day. Maybe I'll start losing weight. The kids are all arguing who gets the massage first, I finally found something to settle them down at night. I am feeling like I am giving more than receiving though, so if my cute stuff is out there reading this ::hint hint:: Sorry I said you looked like a blueberry earlier, I meant it in a good way, blueberries are yummy. I think I'm gonna d

POETRY: In My Dreams

In my dreams my mind plays games, where life seems real but not the same. I fly with you across the night into the wind our thoughts give flight, your face glows softly; my guiding light. And in my dreams my hopes come through I find you waiting, with a smile so true You took my hand and away we flew. Across the trees and above the seas we find no fears or boundaries, and know together we can do anything and be anyone we want to be. And in my dreams, You kiss me there and hold me without any other cares, and one we are with no despair. And then you're gone so off I fly, to search for that joy from days gone by. There in my dreams You remember us, and in that world we have our trust. For in my dreams you love me stilll, and I know for you, I always will. But like all dreams they too must end But these dreams don't seem, to fix and mend. For I awake to another day and find that you have gone away, so alone I wonder and I pray, wishing my dreams were here to stay.

School Day 3 - Rubbing Feet

Carrie is finally happy I learned how to rub feet the right way ;) On Thursday we learned to massage the front and back of the feet, though the front part is kinda weird, and did not particulary feel good on my feet, maybe the girl was pressing too hard, but she was good on the rest. I didn't realize how good a foot massage felt. I don't recall ever getting one before, and as I layed there it brought up emotions I had held back all day. :tear: So now all the kids want feet rubbed before bed, and I never imagined you could work up a sweat just doing feet, but its work. My instructor says by the end of the year, and if you are doing about 5 massages a day you have the endurance and stamina of a professional athlete. Sounds cool. Well my uncle Scott is almost ready to start tearing out the carpet and getting in our new floor, I can't wait for that. It's been raining almost non stop for two days and these kids are getting on my nerves. Something about our house just d

Origin of "Laying on of Hands"

Since I have started massage therapy school, I found it interesting of the history of massage traces all the way back to religious ceremony. More in part the oils used both in greeks, Jewish and early Christian traditions. It seems that modern day churches including the LDS have literally little idea of what real "laying on of hands" and the "olive oil" is used for. As far as I understood when I was a member the laying on of hands was merely tradition, and the oil supposedly consecrated to aid in some type of spiritual faith healing. But it originates back in Jewish tradition and even earlier when Hippocrates used oils and found rubbing them in to be beneficial. The early Jewish traditions actually rubbed the oils into parts of the body, and even in the early Christian church back in 50 A.D. The oil was literally rubbed into the head, feet, etc to aid in the healing. Now religion has become so watered down, that the LDS now only annoints through the clothes, or just
