It's Small Successes day over at Faith & Family Live - you can read other moms' successes here. My successes:
1) On Tuesday, Goose and I headed to my parents' house for a brief visit. I intended to stay a couple of days, and leave Goose there for a few more days. (At Grandma's, when Mama is gone, it's ALL CARE BEARS ALL THE TIME.) After hearing the weather report, I decided to cut my visit short and head back yesterday. It has snowed and slushed all day so far, so I think I made the right choice.
2) Since I am Goose-less, I have been working hard to get ahead on my 40 bags in 40 days challenge for Lent. I have worked so hard on our spare bedroom today that I haven't even bothered to eat lunch - and I am NOT a girl that misses many meals. :>)
3) I *finally* found a new purse! I have been looking since Goose potty-trained and I was able to give up the diaper bag. I needed something pretty big and I didn't want to spend much money.
The only thing it lacks is a shoulder strap, but I think I can take care of that myself - I bought some heavy duty needles and thread yesterday, and I'm already plotting in my head. Or maybe I'll leave it. I definitely like being able to pull the strap over my head and across my body when we get home and I have a bunch of stuff to carry in from the car.
(Though from the size of this baby, I can put half the stuff I need to carry in directly IN the purse...)
And a bonus #4 success . . . I didn't get out of bed until after 8:30 today. Hubs is gone, though his alarm went off at six AM, so it's not like I slept straight through the entire time, but it sure was nice nonetheless!
Anybody else having a successful day?
