"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that. "
We've decided to postpone school until after Labor Day, which gives me more time to organize--yay!
- This weekend I organized and re-inventoried the big freezer.
- More than a year ago, we gave Marianna Tea and Cake with the Saints, but haven't done much with it UNTIL NOW. My daughter and I are in the process of organizing a "morning tea" for early next week. So far we've settled on a date and time, planned the menu, printed and colored invitations, bought scrapbooking paper to make envelopes (WAY out of my usual level of involvement), and begun collecting RSVP's. Next comes the advance food prep. Fun!
- While white water rafting this summer, I was faced with the truth that I have practically no upper body strength. After procrastinating too long, yesterday I had my loving husband walk me through a short set of weight training exercises. I asked for a routine that was 5 minutes or less (so I'm more likely to do it). He came up with something that is almost twice that long, but still feels short and is non-sweaty (so I can do it any time). It was embarrassing to show him how little I can lift (he's fit), but fortunately he loves me anyway. :-)
