Baby Steps

I posted a mini update yesterday and at the end of it I said I’d post about what I did on Thursday evening. Well, Thursday evening I went to a work function. It was a last minute decision. I had every intention of working late, going home and begrudgingly doing some cleaning.

Instead, I went out and hung with coworkers and other people. Then I came home and cooked some black beans and rice with turkey sausage and some cornbread muffins. BUT I did have a minor success last night. Before I went to bed, I actually remembered to put away my left overs! AND I even cleaned up ALL the dishes I used! Even the ones I used to cook in! That’s a HUGE deal for me. I tend to put away leftovers and just leave the pots and pans for another day (or week…or month). The dish washer was running as I went to sleep.

So, no bathroom cleaning, no packing, no trash taken out (though I did get more garbage bags) BUT I did the dishes. Baby steps.

Now, let’s see…what random image can I post on here to make this not all text…hmm…OH I KNOW. Did you know that I used to do a daily (well, somewhat daily) journal comic blog. It was called Crazy Cat Lady…in the making. This was the first comic I ever did:

My first journal comic.

There you go. Enjoy.
