Small Successes Thursday


1. I managed to get a nap while both girls were sleeping yesterday!

2. I got the burny stuff off of the bottom of our stock pot instead of letting it sit there because it would be hard to clean. Okay…this is kind of Paul’s success, too, because he suggested the steel wool. But I did the scrubbing.

3. The basil plant that Paul got me is still alive! I haven’t killed it yet. I usually forget to water plants…but I really want this one to live!

What are your Small Successes this week?


  1. I love small success Thursdays!

    1. I turned and watered my compost.
    2. I swept the floors in both the office and the kitchen.
    3. We went to Lowe's to get the list of items we need (shelf for my office so I can move the books from both spare rooms, shelves for the trailer, double garbage pull out for under the counter, etc.)

    Goals for next week... clean the desk (it's horrible) and install the shelves... maybe putting it in print will make me stick to it! :)

  2. I'll wait to hear from you next week then ;)

  3. 1. Didn't skip CVS shopping and even got praised by the lady checking us out. Twice in a row paid just pennies over the tax amount. What a rush :)
    2. Put furniture back where it belongs (with lots of help from Nick, of course).
    3. Dusted all surfaces downstairs that contained anything from tile dust to wood dust to chunks of three types of flooring.

  4. Yay CVS! I skipped last week because I felt I needed a little break, and also because there was nothing I really wanted to get. But I did do it again this week! I hope they have more free stuff next week, they've been a little slow.

    And congrats on being almost done with the floors (and all that went with it)!

  5. Good job! I just made my CVS list for tonight... and Walgreens... they are quite long as I keep finding different little deals on different blogs. I am trying to stay on top of it again after taking about 3 months off :)

  6. I know what you mean about the free stuff at CVS, last week wasn't that good. I bought a lot of Suave products, I found coupons for them. I figured I'll donate whatever doesn't get used, but I love body washes, and when they're free that's even better. Also got kids' shampoo :)

  7. Yeah I got the kids' shampoo, too.
