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) I started using Pinterest at the invitation of my sister. It's a bit overwhelming & I only have two things pinned at the moment, but I'm sure I'll add more soon!

2) I got my flute out yesterday. My cousin has asked me to play for her wedding next month, so I thought I should practice some. While playing, The Saint came up carrying a small plastic trumpet & said, "I play too, Mommy-uh?" So cute!

3) I finally called & made several appointments that I've been putting off or forgetting...orthodontist & 11 yr. check-ups for The Prophet, a new psychologist for The Archangel, physical for me, & The Princess' annual check-up.

Last Week's Goal...
Clean & organize the front room where all our school stuff is stored. (Some Accomplished...the room itself doesn't look too bad, but the storage areas are kinda cluttered.)

This Week's Goal...Work on front room storage; Start a new recipe meme for Fridays & call it "Friday's Fare."

Keeping up with those appointments is murder sometimes...and now that all three of mine are old enough for the dentist...welcome to Pinterest. I haven't been doing a lot over there lately, but I love it! Highly addicting, which is why I only do it in small doses!

And btw...your I'd love your Cincinnati chili recipe, that would be my first request! (we do a LOT of Texas chili here since my mother-in-law is from that part of the country, would like to change it up a bit)

Okay, I'm wanting chili now thanks to Kristen's comment.

Very proud of you for making those appointments. I need to make a few. Thanks for the prompt. --Sounds like a great week. What is Pinterest?

I'm completely addicted to Pinterest! And you'll be able to get some great ideas for Friday Fare from there... I, too, made a number of appointments this week. Sure does seem to be a process though!
