long time no see, flisters. i've decided to do that post every day for a month thing (we'll see if it actually takes). it seemed quite daunting at first, because what the hell would i post about every day? went to work. ate a burrito. watched tv. copy pasta ad infinitum.

but i also had another thought about how i had to get my life back in order. i've tried a few times to kick myself in the ass, and i'm usually successful for a day or two, but then it's right back to being a lump on the couch and not doing dishes and generally ignoring the world. and if i try to make a list of everything that needs to get done, it feels entirely insurmountable. but i'm at the point right now where even the smallest of tasks can feel like a grand achievement. so maybe if i string enough of them together, they'll eventually add up to something substantial, something resembling progress.

so my plan is to do something every day. at least one thing. it could be unloading the dishwasher or cleaning the toilet, sweeping the floors or pulling weeds. just something! i have to do something damn it.

and assuming i stick with this plan, i will at least have that to post about every day. should make for some ~exciting~ entries, AMIRITE? let's get this party started.

today's task: I COOKED DINNER. like, actually cooked, from a recipe and everything. it was essentially a beef stroganoff, but with mushrooms instead of beef, and it was pretty decent. YAY ME. and then i cleaned up most of the dishes. some of the dishes. not quite all. but hey, gotta leave something for tomorrow, right? /o\

I think this is a good plan. One day at a time, small victories, is the way to go.

Hey! You're already doing good in the world: I'd forgotten about beef stronganoff. That's definitely going on the menu next week.

I actually think your plan is excellent and totally doable.

That's a great plan, actually. I fully support it. :D

Also, it's really true. Just doing the smallest things is important & helps with feeling like you're actually accomplishing something.

You should definitely do it every day. After awhile, you get in a habit. I started my blog on New Year's Day 2012 and made a commitment to post every single day. It was hard (I cheated a bit), but it's now a habit. I'm still posting on there regularly! You can do it - keep posting about beef stroganoff and Imma gonna eat your LJ!

this is what i'm hoping! on one hand i'm using it to keep myself accountable for Getting Stuff Done at home. but additionally, i'm hoping that coming here and posting becomes a regular thing, just another part of my day, and not such a struggle.

congrats on your blog! what an accomplishment. :D
