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 cleaned, purged, & reorganized almost all of the crawlspace. We had 7 Xerox paper-sized boxes of video tapes that I paired down to 3, reorganized the kids' clothing boxes in order of size, cleared out a lot of misc. decorative items (incl. Easter & Christmas), & threw out a bunch of trash. I now have 4 boxes & 3 bags full of items to donate to Goodwill. Boy, that felt great!

2) I've exercised about 10 minutes per day for the past three days. I'm using my irregular heartbeat scare as a wake-up call. I know 10 minutes isn't much, but it's a BIG start for me.

3) I ironed a bunch of clothes. Ironing is NOT one of my favorite household chores (hence my preference for cotton wash & wear clothing!) But, in an effort to continue cleaning the basement & crawlspace, I decided to iron a bunch of the clothes we had hanging downstairs so they could be taken up to our closets.

Ironing. That makes a lifetime successful :) And way to go getting in that crawlspace!

Sounds like a wonderfully successful week to me! Doesn't purging feel great? I think you've motivated me to tackle the coat closet in our entryway...

Grrrreetings to you.

Aaah .... irrroning !!!

A woman was taken to hospital with two burnt ears. She was asked how it happened and she said the phone rang whilst she was ironing.

The doctor said: This explains one ear. How did you burn the other?

She said it happened when she phoned for an ambulance.

God bless.
