Small Successes #4

For more small successes punch the button above!

1. Vaccuumed behind the couch, stove and fridge for the first time in a year. (Wow that was intense) It was way easier than I thought it would be, I have no idea why I put it off for so long. I feel great about it!! I also washed every single dish (my most hated chore) that I had allowed to pile up on my counter, including the muffin pans and the cookie pans. My counter was completely clean for a whole half hour!

2. We went a little crazy this week with “fun time” and we painted, did playdough, made pies and got to finish Christmas shopping.

3. Mornings have been going way better around here. Having french toast or muffins already made in the fridge, the babies clothing picked out the day before, and putting on the tea kettle first thing in the morning have made a huge difference. I am so excited about all the responses I got last week and I am still reading through them and deciding what works best for us. Thank you all so much!

    Thanks for stopping by. Congratulations on all the cleaning (and baking) accomplished. Glad you took some time for fun and play this week. Be well!

    Don't you just love it when you put out a plea for help or advice and it actually helps? I LOVE that about blogging!

  • Michelle

    Ooh, good for you! I also like it when I get helpful hints/tips through the blogs!

    I really need to get organized. And I probably ought to break it into small things in order to get it accomplished.

    So smart to get breakfast ready the night before! Glad it's going better.

    I love that you can ask for help in the blogging world and get so many great suggestions. Great job on the cleaning. I haven't even considered cleaning BEHIND those things. I guess that means I should think about doing that one of these days since I'm sure it's terrible back there.

    I HATE the dishes with a passion, so I totally am giving you an internet high-five. :D Speaking of which, I should go do the lunch dishes … sigh. :)

    Also, I can't stand washing muffin tins! But since we love muffins…it must be endured :)

    Your small successes seem pretty worthy to me :)

    As always, thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog lately….it's so nice to "meet" you!

    I applaud your whole list. Dishes especially – I loathe dishes!!

    God Bless, and thanks for sharing your life with us!!!

    Yeah it was pretty bad behind the couch! I also found a bunch of things that have been missing for awhile back there. And we love muffins too! Sometimes I am cleaning the pans just so I can use them again.
