I had a great time in Memphis with my best friend this past weekend, even though I was still a tad under the weather. We both got much needed massages Saturday at Gould’s Day Spa in that beautiful downtown Memphis icon, the Peabody Hotel, and ate dinner at Rendezvous. I then slept the sleep of royalty because there were no small people to wake me up at 2 a.m.
How often do you get massages? Every time I get one I nearly kick myself for not doing it more often. This was the first massage I’ve had all year and I had to will myself to not come off the table when she worked the kinks out of my shoulders.

I need a little blog break this week, but true to real life I’m mouthing off elsewhere. I’m on deadline at work and I’ve got several things I want to get accomplished before Miss C starts FIRST GRADE August 11. Sniff.
Last week at Deep South Moms I wrote about exploring a possible job opportunity. It turns out it wasn’t something I would be interested in, but I’m glad I investigated it and went ahead with a phone screening interview, as nerve wracking as it was. I haven’t had a job interview in more than seven years, so it was a good exercise in resume updating, at the very least. The entire process proved so distracting, however, that I qualified for The Worse Mother Of The Year Award by completely forgetting to take Miss C to her weekly ballet class. So far she hasn’t mentioned it, but I may have to pay off her instructor and the other parents this week so they don’t ask where we were.
All kidding aside, the entire process validated something I already knew. My current flexible work schedule is something I can’t and won’t give up. I think God was trying to tell me, “Simmah down girl…you’ve got it made!”
I also wrote recently at Deep South Moms about finding my fashion mojo. I’m probably only two pima cotton t-shirts away from morphing into a Lands End poster mom, but I have added some fun pieces to my wardrobe recently.
At Savvy Housewife I’m having a PeaceLoveMom CARE t-shirt giveaway. It’s not only the hippest t-shirt ever, but it benefits a great cause. I’ve also posted a great roundup of online shopping sources for school uniforms to help you save time and money.
July is coming to a close and I’ve been remiss in thanking Sonia Sunshine for a highly esteemed committee induction. My boobs are more flopsy wopsy than itty bitty, nothing a great bra can’t remedy, but how great is it to have your boobs recognized on the Internet.
Note to self, quit using the word great.
