The Independence Project


My happiness project has evolved into the independence project.
Recently, I took such small baby steps.
From fueling my car, to setting the clock in my car to daylight savings time, to parallel parking with people in my car. These small steps might mean nothing to someone else but they mean the world to me. They are the proof that I am stronger than I think.

So, as strange as it sounds, I am looking forward to taking out the trash and more typical manly responsibilities such as a clogged toilet. OK, that’s a blatant exaggeration. No one looks forward to a clogged toilet.
