A Few Things Got Done [Jun. 13th, 2009|02:36 am]

I'm setting the standards for success VERY LOW today.

I got up before 4pm.

I took a shower.

I girded my loins, gathered my courage, and called one of the credit card companies. Negotiated some payments, got off the "impending legal action" list.

I got out of the house for a little while & went for a walk over to the LSE. (Actually started the previous phone call while walking and completed it on the LSE porch.)

I fed my craving for linguine with clam sauce by ordering from Cinderella's Italian Cuisine in Cambridge. It was good. The BF's pizza was burnt, though.

I edited two last-minute papers.

I am going to bed before dawn.

Baby steps.

You did a really hard one. When I have tough things like that on my list, I have to consider getting even one of them done in a day a Raging Success.

I feel like an idiot gushing, but OMG THANK YOU.

I know I'm not an alien and that other people feel this way, but it's easy to convince myself I'm lame for considering this a big achievement.

*flood of relief*

It was a *huge* achievement. It's one of those tasks where you'd almost rather step in front of a bus than pick up the phone. That takes a lot out of a person, getting that kind of thing done.

Dealing with the credit card company is a big deal, though. It probably took a lot of emotional energy.

Yeah, it really did take a lot of emotional energy. And I felt drained afterward.

That credit card thing sounds like a huge achievement to me. Good on you!

And for everything else. You got the needs met. Important stuff.
