I Love My Chiropractor

My body is messed up.

I think it started when I was in a car accident when I was about 12 yrs. old. That began my neck problems. Then, the night of my Senior Prom I was involved in another accident. (My date rear-ended friends while driving his mother's brand new BMW on the way to the dance. Good Lord. It was like a John Hughes movie.)

The older I get the harder I have to work to make my core strong. Having children taxed my body in ways it wasn't prepared for. A few years ago my back went out and I was immobile. I was so depressed! Here I was, in my late 30's and I felt like my body was 130. I could not move. Then... then I found my current Chiropractor. *Cue the angels singing*

I have gone to Chiropractor's since I was 12 and I have experienced many different techniques. There was one that had, now this is my interpertation, a plastic cone with a roller ball on one end that he would move over your body while rolling the ball. He said that this was picking up the areas of tension in the body so he knew where the source(s) of pain were. Are you kidding me?!? There was more silliness. I wasn't happy.

Then the glorious Dr. Dan came along. He really won me over when he told me "I don't want to see you". Meaning, I want to fix you, and send you on your way. Not the "Come and see me 3 times a week for 6 months" routine.

The last time I visited his office was June of 2008. (I can't believe that! Good for me.) When I showed up this morning he knew which side was out and what I was feeling before I said anything. *sigh* I love this guy.

I'm hurting from my adjustment right now, but I know I'll feel better very soon. A little Ibuprofen with a whiskey chaser works every time. kidding! well, kind of ;->

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
