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 finally cashed in the "Can-O-Change" that has been sitting on the counter since we moved. I made enough to buy seven travel cat boxes and the dog food!

2- I replaced the ant traps, even though they should have been still working, ants were taking over our counter tops by the sink. This morning, I only saw one lone ant by the sink. I only have to fool them one more week, then they can take over.

3- I made arrangements with the landlady to just take the money from our deposit to have the carpets cleaned after we leave. Now we don't have to spend an extra hour or two cleaning carpets (when we've had to wait all day for them to load our stuff on the truck) and then the logistical hassle of going to pick up and take back the cleaner. We might actually get to spend the last evening here with the family!

Awesome!!!! Love the change idea (I need to save more!) and awesome on #3.

Great list Tracy!

Letting other people do some things (#3) even if you have to pay, is a great thing.

Isn't it great how that extra change can add up? We keep one by the stove & periodically send the money to a local donation center run by a Franciscan sister.
