I spent the better part of today on the phone with the insurance company trying to resolve some issues. Eventually I did reach a real human on the other end that could be of some assistance. By the time things were resolved, I had binged on all the brownies that we brought home from our weekend trip to Tucson.
My solution to this very frustrating day is a variation of what healthy people often do. Healthy people say “I’m going on a cleanse.” Yes folks, I am going on a cleanse, however not your typical cleanse like drinking juice for meals. I wipe the rest of my day of phone calls with “representatives” and policy talk. I am done for the day with bill paying and the feeling of defeat. I am going on a creative cleanse. For the rest of the day I will be sitting in my studio gingerly painting while binge watching movies like “Little Women.” I will be stopping only to maybe do the dishes, take my dog for a walk and possibly binge on more dessert food with my husband.
