Taking Back My Twenties


Posted on Jun 15, 2011 | 8 comments

Today was my last day of babysitting! Now I am officially unemployed.


It was a little sad, but mostly exciting. The weather was breezy and in the 70’s – perfect for lying under my tree while the kids played at the park.


I wished a had brought a new book to start today, but I just enjoyed the sunshine.


Then I took the little guy to J.P. Licks for a special ice cream treat. I got half peanut butter and half cookie yogurt. Mmmm! I eat so much tart yogurt, that I forgot how good the sweet stuff is. I enjoyed this SO much this afternoon! And I think my companion really liked his enormous oreo cake batter in a waffle cone. It took him a good 20 minutes to get through it and I was finished in five.


I came home and split a Long Trail with Matt who was already working on this beautiful veggie frittata.


I ate half the pie with a little spinach salad and I am now felling like a balloon. Unfortunately, I’ve noticed some of my stomach symptoms returning lately and I am NOT happy about it. I know some people are really sensitive to red peppers, so maybe it’s just that. I’m hoping to get a second opinion once I have some decent health insurance.

T minus two days of internship…I don’t know what to do with myself!!!

    Can we do some of that ‘lying under a tree’ this weekend?

    Can’t wait to hear about your internship!! I am thinking about going back to school for School Psychology.

      It’s a wonderful field, but get ready for a lot of testing! Feel free to email me if you have more specific questions about school pscyh…

    I’ve been noticing that my stomach does NOT like eggs lately. Maybe that’s it?
    I’m sad because I think I’m developing an egg intolerance, which is terrible since I don’t eat a ton of meat and eggs are a go-to protein.

    How about a recipe for that frittata? Its beautiful.

    • Laura

      Sure! I just sauteed red peppers and mushrooms in EVOO and then poured a mixture of 4 eggs and 1/2 cup milk on top of the veggies in the skillet. I let it cook until it was firm, then added some herbs and white cheddar before putting it under the broiler until the cheese browned.
