Misc.

-saw "One for the Money", and it didn't suck! (Caveat: I'm a huge fan of the books, so YMMV.)

-I got my health insurance card in the mail today, w00t!

-survived my first week of school, relatively unscathed. Except for my habitual fretting over stuff that's not due for months, which is SOP for me.

-massaged for 7 hours today, five clients total. Not one of them talked, so I had 7 hours to spend inside my own head. That's not always a good thing, trust me (see above bullet point!)

-filed my taxes today, too...Yay! I'm actually getting money back from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts...must mean I'm poor. ;)

-Two of my 90-minute massages were prenatals, and my first one had EPIC GAS. I'm talking, reeking like the bastard child of a skunk and hell effluvium. And rotten eggs. Though that's three parents. This was THROUGH a blanket and a sheet, mind you. Reminds me of time I was pregnant with Silver and woke up her dad from a sound sleep. But I digress...

-I have homework! As a matter of fact, I have to memorize a song by MONDAY. When am I supposed to do that?! I have no time! (I have a mandatory post-holiday, holiday party for work tomorrow night. Sigh. At least it's free food!)

And that's about all I've got right now. Have a great Sunday!

I'm a big fan of the books to. I plan on seeing it.

Thanks for the head's up.

A mandatory party just sounds wrong...

I much prefer not to talk while I'm getting a massage. Talking takes away from the relaxation aspect of it, for me.

What is the general opinion concerning that, among those in your trade? Do you think most prefer not to have to keep up a conversation, or do they like talking?

Jim, it varies. In my opinion (and as I was taught in school), it should be left to the client. I don't initiate conversation, but I'll chat if the client starts talking to me. I know of some therapists who will literally shush their clients, which I personally find appalling.
I love hearing folks' stories, but I'm just as agreeable if they want to snooze.
