I'm Living Proof

I am living proof that a person can change.

Today there was a spider in my house.

I did not scream or jump. I did not cry and make Ryan come home from work to dispose of it. Nor did I pull our the vacuum cleaner, like I usually do if Ryan cannot be summoned.

Instead, I watched as the spider crawled into my laundry hamper and thought to myself "Hmmm, I bet he and I will probably meet up again."

And I felt a little proud of myself.

Baby steps on the bus.. baby steps on the bus... (I really hope you saw "What about Bob" or that didn't make any sense at all). Michael is breaking my heart. "That's Befany? I go to Befany's house and play with Douglas? Pwetty please mommy?"
