Small Successes


It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.

1. I got the living room and office/dining room and both boys' rooms(hazmat suits anyone?!) pre-move cleaned and purged. All those high dust zones, files organized, curtains and bedding washed, deep corners and dark places vacuumed and windows cleaned. I even washed the outside windows on the front porch! I also managed to grocery shop, get gas, provide dinners and mow the lawn during all this.

2. I did not lose my temper when one boy was pressed up against above mentioned clean window to watch the city workers out by the water main.

3. I have a pre-move appointment with the moving company set up for next Wednesday. One step closer, and I am trying not to get too excited that after this upcoming weekend, Chuck will be home in THREE!!! weeks! I almost get teary eyed thinking about it.
