I've been talking about having a massage for years, but haven't taken the time. You know how it is when you're busy - working full time, being a mom, keeping up with the laundry. It's hard for me to justify taking an hour for myself - just to relax. Finally, I had a legitimate excuse. It's for work: A story about massage. I could write it better if I had the experience, right? I put myself in the hands of Eugenia "Jeanie" Keller, a person I've known and trusted for a long time.
