Small Successes: Better NOT

"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."

Sometimes accomplishments show up not as what we DO, but as what we DON'T.  In that spirit, I offer the following:
  1. I haven't complained that the minivan has been out of commission since Sunday.  (If you must know, the oil ran out after Friday's oil change and we're waiting for various insurance adjusters and mechanics to determine whether the engine was damaged as a result.)
  2. I have whined less than usual about my carpool duties and current cold.
  3. I have NOT cut my bangs even though they need it.  I really must get a haircut--it's been too long (ha-ha)--and my history of self-trimmed bangs is a laughable one (just ask my sisters).
Are you making great strides, or is treading water your success this week?  See how other moms are doing at Faith and Family Live.

Somewhere on this blog you mentioned how cleaning a sink long overdue for a cleaning can make you feel happy for a long time... I can't find it, but....*****whispering*****I do know.
