Proud (A Monday Morning Comment Game)

April 3, 2006 at 12:37 pm | Posted in Linky Love, More than you ever wanted to know about me... | 27 Comments

I’m proud of myself for something I did this morning.

(Beyond just getting out of bed, which some mornings, is the best I can do)

What did I do?

Check the comments to find out.

And then post your own: what have you done today that makes you feel proud? Even just a little teeny weeny bit proud of yourself?

Once you’ve boosted your own self esteem, go boost the esteem of the person who commented before you by visiting their site and commenting there. This is shamelessly ripped off adapted from Michele, who for the record, writes: “the lovely thing about being me is that I am so damn good at it.”

  1. I am proud of… the fact that this morning I turned in the paperwork to get a pump. I’ve been flirting with the pump world for over a year, but now I’ve signed on the dotted line. In the world of born-again-diabetics, I think this represents a formal baptism.

  2. I am proud that I got all my arrangements done for my son’s medical trip to Montreal. I’m such a procrastinator and I always end up doing things last minute. Well I’m ready 4 weeks in advance. I can relax the rest of the month.

  3. well, it’s small, but I’m proud that I took a shower this morning AND remembered my lunch. I’m not a dirty person, just a tired one…

    Sometimes it’s the little things that count. Like having shiny hair and not being smelly at work.

  4. Ooh Art-Sweet! That’s fantastic! I’m proud of YOU!

  6. Kerri, that’s cheating! 😉 (But thank you)

    What have YOU done that YOU’RE PROUD OF?

    (and by the way Trista, I think showering is definitely worth being proud of)

    Don’t forget to visit the site of the person who commented before you and comment there to share the love (not counting this comment).

  7. This is going to sound so stupid but…
    I am proud of myself for NOT taking a pregnancy test until I actually miss my period instead of testing a million times.

    I am proud of you art-sweet for giving the pump a whirl. I was so apprehensive before I got mine but with work it is going to be so “SWELL”!!!

  8. Okay okay.

    I’m proud that I changed my lancet today. And that I’m considering moving across the country to LA without worrying if I’ll be okay.

    Because I know I will be.

    How’s that?

  9. It’s not often I manage this so…I’m definitely going to take advantage of this moment.

    I was ontime for work today, even a few minutes early and before the usual early birds… Then at lunch I was ontime getting back too. Ok, I consider it on time- I’m “scheduled” to get back at 1:30, I got back at 1:32. LOL 🙂

  10. Congratulations, Art-sweet.

    I’m proud that I have been drinking 64+ ounces of water everyday for 2 weeks now — and that I’ve reduced my diet soda intake to one or two cans a day.

  11. Yay for you!

  12. I’m proud that I had my first tutoring session with my friend’s son today. She asked me to start tutoring him in English, and I was terrified to do it because I didn’t know if I would be any good at it. Who knew degrees were actually good for something??

  13. I am proud that I got into the writer’s workshop I have been toying with and that I asked my dad for the money for it rather than going further into debt for it.

    And way to go everyone!

  14. Art Sweet — I meant to start my last post by telling you that I wish you luck with and the same kind of control I’ve been able to get from pumping — I think you’ll very much like it.


  15. Oh, you’re good, art-sweet.
    I am proud that… I woke up extra-early feeling extra-crabby and I made it through my day functional and entirely sans meltdown.

  16. I am proud that today I did not watch TV when I got stressed out. I took a walk.

    • Today we’re teaching robots how to fly…But this article does bring up a more serious topic. Currently if your computer does something illegal, or your dog, then the owner is accountable.If one of these drones kills an innocent person, who’s fault is it?Do we allow the operators diminished aci?untabilctyoCan anyone beheld accountable if a robot is truly autonomous?Perhaps these questions seem overly litigious, but the impact is mush deeper than any formal legal system.

  17. I am proud of my self restraint. The cute boy is signed on msn right now but i am waiting for him to message me…. still waiting… sigh. Keep being proud of yourself! Here from the fabulous Michele’s

  18. I’m proud I cleaned the house despite my urge to hole up in my bed with chocolates and bad movies.

  19. congrats on your pump paperwork. I know a lot of diabetics who absolutely adore having one.

    My pride: I managed to get another scrapbook layout done today…this one for ME, not a design team obligation for the website I design for. It’s nice to do something just for yourself sometimes.

  20. I’m proud that I was able to get the boy ready to go with mommy AND get all my things together AND be to work on time. A rarity that is.

  21. I’m proud that I spent my early morning playing “Balloon American Idol” (my daughter’s creation), thus adding to (instead of picking up) the clutter around here.

    And it was dang fun.

    Oh, and Art-Sweet, glad to hear you’re going on the pump. Just the other day, as he bolused for his lunch, Joseph told me yet again how much he LOVES his pump and never wants to go back to shots!

  22. Yay, Art. You’ll like the pump. You’ll really like it.

  23. I’m proud to have a 24 year old son, today, that makes me proud every moment of being his Mom.

    Congradulations on your achievement as well. Thanks for stopping in today.

  24. I am one day late but I am proud of myself because… will be 2 weeks tomorrow since our miscarriage and I am doing good.

  25. I proud that I remembered to buy toilet paper, a] WHILE at the store (not after I left), and b] before we ran out.

    That’s all I got…

  26. I am proud of the fact that I writer/blogger who’s work I really admire commented on my blog today! Comments rock!
