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 made a homemade version of my favorite soup from Olive Garden...Zuppa Toscana. It was yummy!

2) I rigged up a temporary solution for our washing machine until we can replace the lid switch. Usually we just have to put the tool box & another heavy item on the lid so that it continues to run, but it's getting worse. All I needed this time was a pair of scissors...just call me MacGuyver! (We've had the replacement part for a while, now we just need to find the time to do it.)

3) I went shopping & made sure that Casinodad has plenty of food & fun snacks for the munchkins while I'm away this weekend.

#3 is so important. Although my husband made it to the beach solo with all three kids a couple of weeks ago...I try to make sure they have essentials at home so they don't have to make a trip to the grocery store/ big box store, because that quickly turns into how many toys can someone get with just Daddy present.

Would you come over to my house and rig up something to keep my dryer from dying its slow death? LOL
SO happy that you will be nurtured and enriched with your friendship weekend...and I know Casinodad and Munchkins will have a blast together while you're away, too!
