Baby Steps, Baby!

I have been avoiding writing this post all day.

No, it isn’t because I totally failed at last weeks task I set for myself, to try to act like a responsible adult. I did mostly fail at that task, but not entirely. I managed to shower, eat and dress myself all week, so I at least surpassed toddler stage. The dog is still alive too, so I must have remembered to feed and walk him. (Okay, Using the dog as a marker is kind of cheating. His owners were here until Saturday morning.)


Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.

I had a long list of things that I needed to get done. Some got done, some were partially completed, some I successfully avoided. Oh wait, avoiding them isn’t a mark of success in this case. On the up side, I did finish the second draft of my book while avoiding doing less pleasant tasks.

Obviously I wasn’t prepared to start acting like a grown up right out of the gate. Baby steps baby! So that is what I am going to try this week. I am going to complete at least one task each day. One task, how hard can that be?

I guess it depends on how you look at it. My task today was to sort out my filing drawer and find the paperwork I would need to finish other tasks this week. I did manage to drag my butt out of the house and buy more hanging folders. Now they are sitting on the desk mocking me.

Now that I have admitted that, I have to do something about it. That is why I have been avoiding writing this post, it let me avoid the filling. On the upside, I got all my laundry done, my bulletin board hung and updated the antivirus software on my computer while trying to avoid the task I had set for myself. The downside – today is almost over and if I don’t get it done will feel like a total failure.

So I am off to file – just as soon as I walk the dog.
