Small Successes

Sherry, at Chocolate for Your Brain, hosts Small Successes each Thursday. Check it out to see others' successes & share your own. Recognizing the small things we accomplish each week helps us realize that even when it doesn't seem like it, we are getting things done!

1) Over half of our Christmas shopping is done, thanks to the great clearance items we found at Kroger on Sunday.

2) Cleared up a corner in my room that was getting cluttered...folded & put away four baskets of clothes (two of which had been there about a week), hung up the kids clothes that were stacked on the rocking chair, & bagged those they'd outgrown

3) I'm only 1/2 way through the week, but I'm surviving my busy schedule. It's very rare for us to be busy most evenings, but this week I've had something EVERY night. And even though I've been in bed by my regular time, I haven't had that downtime that I'm used to.

Last Week's Goal...Start getting some of our Christmas decorations out. I'm not really feeling the season yet, so hopefully that will help some. (Got out the tree, my hand-painted village, our Jesse Tree, & our DVDs/CDs)

This Week's Goal...Start getting our cookie doughs made up & start wrapping some presents so that we're not stuck at the last minute

That is so great you have gotten a chunk of your Christmas shopping done. We have one gift... ;)

Wow! Prayers for continued surviving a busy schedule, I know that's hard. And kudos on the Christmas shopping. See you next week.
