My New Guest Room Project

We are building an extra room in the back of our house for my mom who comes to visit every 6 months and other guests who come every year. We’ve been having people sleep inside the house but we’ve turned our guest room into our much needed office. This new office space has made working from home so much enjoyable but we no longer have a spot to host our guests! In addition to that, we wanted to have a new room for when we have pest control services spray the house. This room will be like our little “get-away” from the usual. We’re making it very modern and elegant, buying everything new. Since the bathroom space will be small, we will have a shower enclosure…something I’ve always wanted.

All the planning of the new room has gotten me reflecting on our current room. The new room will be so much nicer that I have been considering making this room ours instead. The downside is that the new room is not attached to the main house and if someone was to try to break in we wouldn’t hear them. I have talked to my husband and we are considering getting a security system installed for our home. Although nothing is a guaranteed, this security system will give us a peace of mind. We are also getting a dog, and even though I feel it is a big responsibility to take care of a dog, it could really help us keep the house safer.

A month into the construction of the new room the workers have finished the bathroom and added the pretty shower enclosure I had been longing for. I’m excited to see how the rest of the room will turn out but I have not told my mom about it yet because I am still deciding whether I should keep this room for ourselves or our guests. I hope I make the right decision!

My Fancy Massage Therapy Business

I have finally finished my Shiatsu massage therapy workshop and I am happy to announce that I am getting my own clinic! I found an ad on the newspaper classifieds about an old and poorly maintained building that they were selling for only $7,000! I thought, here’s my chance to be creative. So I took a loan out of my retirement account and bought the building. There are three halls, one which I will use as a lobby, the other one as the massage room, and the last one I am setting it up as a yoga studio with mirrors and hardwood floor. But the thing that makes me the most excited is my front herculite doors. They are so fancy!

I am actually getting all kinds of glass for my business. The lobby has a glass table top and glass shelves for holding small indoor plants (these are great at absorbing the negative energy that is released from our patients during their sessions and to keep the air clean). We are also getting decorative glass panels to divide the halls yet provide enough privacy. All the remodeling should be done within a month or so.

I never thought this opportunity would come to me this quickly. I always wanted to have my own fancy spa,
with relaxing music in the background, and provide a space for people to come and rejuvenate themselves. It is tough to live in the world nowadays; even kids now suffer from the stress-related problems only elderly would suffer from just 20 years ago. I am happy to be able to provide that space for others to come and get away from everything.

I’m hiring other therapists to come and work here as well so I can also get my own “me time”. I am holding on to the sticker sign that I will place on my new herculite doors until all the interior remodeling is done and the business is ready to open. Look at the picture on the right, doesn’t it look so welcoming?! The Fancy Massage Clinic ready to open in just 5 more weeks, be ready!
