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) Cleared out a few more areas from the decluttering spree I mentioned last week...a couple of the kitchen drawers & the door shelf in my linen closet.

2) Along those lines, I also went through a laundry basket that's been sitting on my closet. It held clothing items that needed mending, so I repaired about half of them. That included using HelpfulGrammy's sewing machine to cut off the bottom & hem a long denim jumper that had been ripped. It's a little too short at the moment, so my next step will be to add some decorative trim to lengthen it.

3) I remembered to cut my hair. Every day, when fixing my hair for the day for the past couple weeks, I've been saying that I needed to cut my hair. Then, I'd forget as soon as I left my bathroom. Yesterday, I finally remembered!
