Small Successes

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!
To link up your Small Successes each Thursday, go to CatholicMom.com. Here's the link.

1) I decided a big decluttering is in dire need around here...I've found that clutter in the house causes clutter in my mind & chaos all around! So, I made of a list...room-by-room, section-by section & plan to tackle a bit each day. So far, I've done our entertainment center, The Saint's toy/book corner, my dresser drawers, & jewelry box

2) When I went to water the garden last night, I spent another 1/2 hour pulling up some of the many weeds. There are still a bunch out there, but I definitely made a big dent.

3) I did a big grocery shopping trip yesterday w/ all four munchkins in tow. Usually, the younger three go to The Eagle's Nest (Giant Eagle's children's area), but they were closed for lunch when we were there. Rather than come back later, they stayed w/ me & did pretty well. The Saint even walked most of the time instead of sitting in the cart.

Wow! You have accomplished a lot. Just going through each room making a plan to declutter is quite a step. All of the cluttter/chaos drives me crazy, too. There is just SO much "stuff!" :-) Weeding is such a necessary job, isn't it? We work on that here everyday, too, but are getting excited. I think we will be able to pick our first cucumber today! And, way to go on taking all of your kiddos shopping with you! That is awesome! I remember it not being easy when all of my kids were little. Hope you have a great Thursday! God bless! :-)
