Get it done!

You would not believe what I have accomplished. Yesterday, I ....

... Worked on an art commission. See that picture to the left? That is a photo Howard took of me hard at work.

People sometimes give me commissions and I am so honored! But at the same time they make me nervous because I want them to love the end result (as we put it here in Buffalo). It is one thing to sketch something just because you feel like sketching it. It is another to have someone ask you to sketch something because you are not just doing it on a lark, you know?

But anyway. That is one thing I did. Give that 10 satisfaction points because I am still not satisfied.

Another thing I did was a grueling 40-minute long Pilates video. Let us budget that, recklessly, at 20 satisfaction points.

And, after that, did work on my Pennario project. I have momentum going! Every day I get a little bit more done because this is my year. With which, I award myself another 10 points.

Also I cooked a rocking dinner with salmon that I had scored half price at Albrecht Discount. 50 satisfaction points.

And also -- are you ready for this? I cleaned the bathroom.

375,000 satisfaction points.

I mean it!!!

I could not get over that I cleaned the bathroom!

This morning when I awoke it was the first thing I thought about. I hopped out of bed and went into the bathroom and the tiles felt different under my feet. These are the hexagonal bathroom tiles typical of North Buffalo houses. They felt cool and clean.

The radiator cover was cleaned off. The toilet gleamed. My sister said there was an illustrator who called the toilet "the swan of the bathroom." Suddenly I understood!

The vanity had reason for vanity. The vintage Standard tub sparkled.

To think that I had done this!

Goes to show..

There is no limit to what you can accomplish, once you put your mind to it.
