One hour and $140 later, I feel a smidgen of hope for me and this muddled mind of mine.

I had a phone session with my old therapist. It went well. It was one of those things where I just needed someone else to verify the things in my head. Someone professional. Someone objective. There were no earth shattering revelations, but I feel very satisfied with the outcome. We're not going to talk again, but I am going to try and find someone here to talk with, even if only for a few weeks. I am going to ask Dr. SOB to step up his parenting game. And I am going to join the YMCA.

On to other matters of business.

If you know me and I usually buy you a christmas present, please have mercy on me this year. Just tell me what you want, and I'll buy it for you. If you know someone that I usually buy christmas presents for, please PLEASE pass this message along to them. Even if I don't know you or usually buy you a present, if you just come out and tell me what you want, I will be so grateful I might end up buying it for you! I cannot fathom even thinking about shopping, let along actually leaving the house and going to a store. Or even shopping online, for that matter. I think the issue is more that I don't have the energy to try and think of perfect gifts for people. So heed this warning: If you don't tell me what you want, you'll likely end up with some Isotoner Slippers if you're female and some Old Spice if you're male.

Default gifts, from my youth, to my grandparents. In case you were wondering.

I love my slippers like that that I have. hehe

This too shall pass.

When I think of all the Slippers and Old Spice years that my parents went through...! Can I steal this verbatim and pass it on to my giftees?

P.S. I'm glad that the phone session went so well. It sounds like you've got some simple yet effective goals in mind -- here's to each one becoming a success!!!

I love that you labeled this "mental."

And I like all presents, so no pressure from me :)

deejay - That is my therapist's mantra! I feel like this is some kind of sign. Of what? I have no clue.

Susan - steal away! I don't prosecute.

Dr. SOB wants me to give everyone mugs with Sam's pic on them. Would you like regular sized or big sized, des?

jen said...

good for you for taking care of yourself....carving out that mental and physical time. saving graces.

super des said...

Why can't I have small sized? They might not fit, but I want the option, dammit.

Amy Jo said...

Alright, you can have a teeny sized espresso cup, des!
