could I have been your little sister?

Great news! I am a fully-licensed therapist! I got my beautiful certificate in the mail today! I've been working for 7 long years for today (2 years of grad school + 2 years working + 1 more year of grad school +2 more years working). So to celebrate, Nathan and I went out and had a sensible dinner. That was funny. We went to Johnny Carinos. We ate. And had dessert. It was glorious. That being said, it's the first time in a long time (several months, I think) that I've eaten to the point of being disgustingly full. I had forgotten how uncomfortable this feels. I think it will keep me from doing it again for a while.

My eating has been terrible today. All kinds of junk. So much sugar, I don't even know where to begin. When will I stop torturing myself? Right now, because I am not going to wallow in defeat.

Anyway, after dinner, we went to Old Navy. I also decided to treat myself to a new outfit for my first day of my new job (a week from today!). I learned 2 things at Old Navy:

1. My bust gets in the way of allowing some cute dresses to look cute. Anything that has a waist just makes me look like I'm looking trying to show off my chest.

2. If the dress has no waist, I have no shape. Or, should I say, my shape is blob. That's what I am. Blob-ish. The cute dresses without a defined waist just hung off my lovely bust and created a horrible mu-mu thing. So cute, but so un-cute on me.

So we left Old Navy empty handed. Boo. And I won't even order the clothes I want on-line (that they didn't have in the store) because it may take them a while to get here and I don't want them to sit on the porch the whole time we are in Kansas. Blech!!

I think I am going to start going through some of my books tonight. I'm not reading anything right now and maybe I'll find something I haven't read as I begin my purging of 2/3 of my books.

Remember to respond to this post to be entered in the contest.

Have a great night!

Wow! Congratulations on getting your certificate! That's awesome! You must be really proud of yourself (not to mention tired) from all of those years of working for it.
