Oh the good old days.
I spent a good part of the afternoon calling around to different therapists and although I have my eye on a specific person, I did get an appointment. There are tons of different therapists in the Boston area so I narrowed down my search by choosing names I like, then comparing where they received their graduate degrees, how long ago, and of course if they work with eating disorders. Then I call to leave messages and judge them even further by how they sound. I have an appointment next Tuesday at 9 with Mimi. She sounds really, really nice so we’ll see. Forth times a charm, baby. And who could resist a Mimi?
I spent my afternoon at an indoor playground at the mall with the little girl I sit for. I realized that I’m not ready for children now as I felt a little depressed having to make small talk with other moms. Then someone asked me if Lily was a boy or a girl. Mind you she was wearing a bright pink hoodie. Some people have air for brains. Then we stopped into Borders to buy the Kind Diet but didn’t end up making the purchase. I felt like it would just sit on the shelf now so I’ll go back to it in another few weeks.
My good friend called today asking if I’d be interested in planning a trip for our 30th birthdays. Hello? Hells yes! Our birthdays are 11 days apart so we had previously discussed having a party together but this takes it to a whole new level. Hawaii, Italy and Alaska were all mentioned. If anyone spots any cheap trips, flights or packages in January 2011, let me know. Thanks! Len and I went on an amazing vacation a while back–our first stop was in Chicago where we surprised my sister for her 30th birthday. Then we went to Colorado and stopped in Boulder, Denver and drove to Vail, Frisco, Dillon and other awesome mountainous towns. I’ll never forget it was snowing in June. Serious. We hopped on another plane to San Fran where we rented a car and drove to wine country. THat was the highlight of the trip. From there we drove down the coast, ending our trip in LA. It was incredible.
Okay, I digress. Snacks–after the mall I was legit hungry. My snacks for the afternoon included half a banana,string cheese, snack bag of popcorn, and 2 crackers with 1 tbsp PB. Seems like a lot but I knew that if I didn’t fill up on healthier foods, I’d approach binge-land.
