Small Successes ( Vol. 11)
1. Back-to-school cleaning is in full effect. Today is Day 4- de-toy and dust the family room and the "public" parts of the house. Here's a breakdown of what we've done so far:
Day 1- Kids bedrooms: clean out under beds, closets, dresser tops. Remove 90% of toys to basement play area and throw out all the little garbage they think is worth saving, i.e., Happy Meal boxes and wrapping paper scraps
Day 2- Baby's room and Bonus room: Actually put things in drawers. Since she doesn't play in there, lots of things just get dropped on the rocking chair and floor. Bonus room: take a lot of toys to basement.
Day 3- Downstairs guest room: put all the books on the shelf, collect random game pieces, collect toys for basement. Sort out 5 overflowing laundry baskets of toys into bins in the basement play area.
Dang, we have a lot of toys! 8 years worth of toy accumulation = a crapload of toys!
2. Getting up for P90X is getting slightly easier, but still I have to force myself to get up. I find that I try to convince myself that I don't have to get up this early, I can do it later, it doesn't matter. Sometimes I think it might be the devil trying to get me to stay in bed because I know I won't do it later if I don't get up early. I'm just that lazy. Anyway, I drag myself up for the salvation of souls, one in particular, who shall remain anonymous. Some days it's so hard I think, if this person doesn't make it to heaven on P90X alone- I don't know what!
3. You know, those are big successes and I can't think of a 3rd one to add. So I guess I will take this time to say thank you for reading my blog. God bless you, my blog-reading/writing friends. I look forward to reading your comments and your successes.
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. To share yours, click here.
