Dr. Dot update

Dot-NYC-June-2017

It’s been a long time since I posted a blog other than introducing a new Dot-Bot. Life got too busy for my blogging fingers. Used to LOVE to blog but then hurricane Desmond came into my life 🙂

He is now almost 5 years old (August 20th is his birthday) and I love him soooooo much. He brings me happiness everyday. He says the funniest things- I just can’t even believe.

Last night he said “you can not get old Mama. I might not love you if you get old. Stay like this please Mama” and I said “well everyone gets old Desmond. Or they die. Do you want me to get old and be around or do you want me to die like Muny. Then you will never see me again if I die” and he said “umm, well just don’t get old. What is this about Getting Old

that everyone wants to do it? Why do they want to get old anyways?” hahaha. I said “well no one WANTS to get old, it is just part of life my cutie”. And he said I want to not get old”

So funny how little kids are so honest and how their questions and thoughts make us grown-ups think again and laugh out loud. He is such a blessing and I savor every minute

of everyday even though I am walking around so tired I FEEL like I am gonna die lol.

Probably would make some people annoyed but I let him sleep in my bed. He HAS a bed but refuses to stay in it. He wants to sleep next to mama. And he is a restless sleeper. omg. He kicks, tosses, turns, wants a sip of water; wakes to make sure I am here next to him. Looking at him right now; the little angel. Of course I felt this way when my daughter Jasmine was his age too but nothing compares to the love between a Mother and Son. It’s the same between a Father and Daughter I hear. Mommy’s little Boy and Daddy’s little girl they say. Well in my case, it stands true. Oh how it does. He shows me unconditional love that makes my heart swell with happiness (except in the supermarket sometimes lol – where if I do NOT buy the toy of his desire he throws a wobbler (tantrum) that seems like he has retracted any love for me hahaha).

I would do anything for my children, anytime, anywhere, it’s all for them. Every dime I earn I would gladly give to them. Best love in the world. So happy. Mind you, if I could buy sleep, I would be bankrupt in a heart beat 🙂

Not easy having a 4 year old at my age. Oh Come on, you know I am no Spring Chicken anymore. Just wish I had 10 little children to take care of but you know how expensive life is and taking care of kids is dear (expensive). So I just savor this one and give him all of my love and attention. I have to wait until he goes to bed (usually late at night!) to start working (the 800+ emails I receive everyday and I mean, every SINGLE day) have to be taken care of otherwise they back up and then the next day I have twice as many. And every parent (who is NOT a Millionaire) knows there is the daily grind at home with house work… trash, laundry, dishes, floors, shopping, cooking, etc..Very hard to maintain friendships or any sort of physical activity. But that is reality when you choose to be a parent. Plus we ALL know I have had quite a run up until then, like up until about 2010, I had so much freedom and so many adventures- well my daughter was grown by then and I was free to travel, work, work out, sing, SLEEP etc 🙂 So it was a HUGE adjustment to be where I am at right now.

Hoping to get my book done SOON. Calling my book “Before I forget” because face it, I need to get my adventures in writing, before I get to old and freakin’ forget. Just my photographs alone need to be published for all to enjoy. I am sort of like the Rock and Roll cinderella or the Forrest Gump of Rock and Roll, these tid-bits need to be shared.

But where would these spare hours come from? Who knows. I barely have time to sleep- ever. Maybe when Desmond starts school this coming Sept. But I was hoping to use those hours to sleep and recover. Head still hurts from those two pesky Brain surgeries I had.. August 2016 and January 2017.. remember? I had two tumors removed.. huge process. And really had minimal help at home to recover, well it was never enough help, especially the first time in August, I was up cooking my own meals and doing housework and alone with Desmond most of the time. It was hell but it kept me so busy I didn’t notice the pain like most people would have. NO Pain killers apart from a few Tylenol PM’s, but then hardly even any of those. Not a fan of drugs of any kind. I threw a full, unopened bottle of Percaset (spelling?) away that my brain surgeon gave me. Did not even want to try one. So afraid of being hooked on such things. Like what happened to Prince. Sad.

I did have help the 2nd time around, but it was never enough. My friend Steve moved in for a while to help with Desmond. I got to sleep a bit more than I normally would. But taking care of Desmond literally requires 3 adults full time lol. Anyone who knows me well, knows this fact. “Takes a village to raise a child” is correct. Sadly I have ZERO relatives in my state. They all live super far away- NH, GA, FLA, CT… no one around. And friends are too busy too; swamped in their own lives, so it’s brutal.

Anyways, I am rambling on.. gotta sleep, just checking in to vent and gush about my little Son who I adore so much. Daughter lives in Germany and I barely see her but that’s life- when they grow up, they live their own lives so cherish them while you can

Massage Delivery service in Miami, Florida

Anika_Miami

Book me: email me at bookings@drdot.com and write “Anika/Miami” in the subject line

Hi my name is Anika and I am originally from Washington state, currently living in Miami, Florida. I studied massage at The Pacific Center for Awareness and Bodywork on the island of Kauai in 2013 and feel incredibly blessed that I was able to do so. This program focused on half bodywork, half consciousness work, and the combination taught me how to really read clients through their body language and really focus deeply on their needs. The program focused on Structural Integration training and this has taught me how to give focused deep work with specific results. This work combined with the tranquil environment also helped me to slow down and work at a relaxed pace, focusing to never rush through a massage, and being detailed oriented and present with clients.

My name is Vanessa and I’m a licensed massage therapist living in the Boston area. In 2004 I participated in a four-month intensive Integrative Bodywork training on the southern coast of Portugal. The instructors were phenomenal and the setting was truly magical. Since then I have taken additional workshops on Deep Tissue Massage, Acupressure and Myofascial Release. I am currently enrolled in a 100-hr Orthopedic Massage training to be completed in May 2014.

I enjoy working with a diverse clientele and have lots of experience traveling to various hotels, businesses and venues to provide on-site massage. I am personable, optimistic, timely and always strive to exude positive energy. I prefer to work deep and slowly, I can do a long, flowing Swedish style massage, or if preferred I can do more focused work on a specific area of tension. I love using acupressure points and myofascial release techniques.

I was a competitive synchronized figure skater while growing up. This experience enabled me to travel far and wide for international competitions. I have a strong passion for adventure, some of my most memorable trips have been to Bali, Costa Rica, Hawaii and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. In addition to massage, I am passionate about yoga, eating healthy, and springtime blossoms.

I look forward to working with you!
