Small Successes: the Vacation Edition


Ah, the slow pace of summer...

Actually, it still feels hectic here some days, but there's no school and few official activities. We spent a few days at the beach and will soon be on our way to a week at Saranac Lake, NY. In addition to sharing a house and hikes and water activities and company with my whole family plus a few (~32 in all!), we'll be celebrating my parents' 50th wedding anniversary. Maybe life isn't so slow after all...

My recent successes are indeed small, but make me believe I'm still getting something done now and then:
  1. I followed through on a Fourth of July craft: painting fireworks t-shirts.
  2. I inventoried and organized the big freezer. We also ate a dinner that used up dribs and drabs of five different frozen entrees!
  3. I reviewed all seven of our library accounts, renewing or returning everything due between now and our return from vacation, changing 8 due dates to just 2.
  4. Bonus accomplishment: I organized a trip to the pool, including inviting Becca's best friend, without being asked.
How about you? Are you enjoying a successful summer? Read what other moms are up to at Faith & Family Live.

Great week my friend. I have to get out into the garage and take care of the deep freeze reorg as well.
Have a fabulous week!

My goodness... I can only fantasize about your #3 accomplishment. I THOUGHT I'd returned everything to the library, but when cleaning the living room this week found a DVD that was 3 weeks overdue. Sigh sigh sigh.

Congrats on an AWESOME week! I have a great vacation.

Sounds like you had a great week. Organizing stuff in the freezer is never an easy task for me.
