Small Successes (Vol 16)

1.  I discovered there are people in my life who are willing to help me when I need it.  Living far from family, I often find myself in a bind when it comes to childcare and daytime appointments.  This was one such week.  It's good to know that people are willing to help me.  I never ceased to be amazed by this!

2.  I successfully hung another set of curtains alone.  That is sweaty hard work, though I don't know why.  Maybe it's because our windows are so tall and I don't have anything quite tall enough to reach, so I do it all in precariously balanced postitions.

3.  I met a couple of really nice women.  They came to my house for a playgroup for the moms group I chair on Tuesday and I learned we have several common interests.  I had only met one of them for the first time at the meeting and she brought along her sister-in-law.  You never know how these things are going to go.  You could spend two hours staring at each other or wishing it would end, but these women were very pleasant company.  I'm always so happy when I am able to make a new friend.  (That's the extrovert in me).

4.  My P90X  review is in the works.  I'm taking the fit test this weekend and I hope to have my review posted for you next week.  I know I keep telling you this, but I really mean it!


  1. I know how you feel about living far out and scrambling for childcare. I am so blessed to have a neighbor whose son is also autistic (as is my daughter) and who is always willing to pick my daughter up along with her son from school or take my boys for an hour so I can run a few errands. She's even grabbed a gallon of milk at the store for me when I had 2 out of 3 kids sick! Those friends are truly gifts from God!

  2. Accomplishments galore! I live close to family, but still rely on friends for a little assistance here and there. What a blessing!

  3. I love moms groups and the special friendships that come from them. That's a very special success.
