The Pampering Continues

I think Tesla dropped half an inch after the shower, but has since been having a good time rolling around in there. I'm not sure what she's doing, but I can tell you that my skin is stretching to the limits and she's getting awfully close to the ribs. This is all very new to me because Mari would freely kick around, completely bypassing the other parts of her surroundings. It seems to me that Tesla likes to use her umbilical to jump rope, or push off my bladder for added fun. It's quite entertaining, albeit painful/uncomfortable at times.

Anyway, last year I purchased a Groupon for the Four Seasons Resort & Club Spa. For $49, I scored a 50-minute Swedish Massage, valued at $125. Talk about a great deal, right? If you've never been there, it's like a quiet oasis reminiscent of what I would imagine those ancient fancy Roman bath houses would have been. You are greeted by friendly workers, the lighting is soft, the quiet spa music compliments the cascading water. The refreshing tea and water is divine! Then you are given spa shoes, a plush bathrobe, and a key to lock away your belongings during your stay. There aren't any disposable hand towels either. When you wash your hands, again, there are luxuriously soft hand towels, perfectly folded for your use.

Don and I indulged in this earlier in the year (I'd bought 4, two for me and two as a gift). Originally, I wanted to use this for he and I and for a girlfriend and I, but scheduling conflicts prohibited that. No worries, because he and I are going again. The Groupons expire on Thursday! Talk about cutting it close. Anyway, this will be a perfect short getaway after a day of TAKs testing for him and general final month pregnancy for me. They were able to put us in the same room for a couples massage. I'm so happy they had a pre-natal massage therapist available at the same time as a regular massage therapist!

Just for kicks, here is a view of their cold plunge pool:

I hope to do a more in-depth review afterwards, but for now, I'm eagerly anticipating the utter relaxation and goodness of our massage.
