Do you ever have a week in which you do a lot, but never really get anything accomplished? This has been one of those weeks for me. Thankfully, the good folks at Faith & Family Live encourage us moms to not sweat the small stuff. Head on over and take a peek and possibly leave a list of your little accomplishments.
1) We are in the living room, if you fly with the Flylady. Unfortunately, so far this week I've only accomplished one small mission in our living room. I went couch diving and cleaned under all the cushions of the couches. It's quite fun to discover what has been lurking there all these months. I found the missing mate to one of my favorite pairs of earrings, Lil' Wingnut's belt that had been missing since December, lots of little lego guys, and what seemed like hundreds of Starburst wrappers. Someone around here needs to find where the garbage can is kept! LOL
2) I am up this morning at 5:30. Yes, 5:30 people! I'm taking Stat Boy up to the chapel for Mass and then he is heading with the youth group to Hershey Park for the day. 5:30! I have a wonderful friend (she also writes this wonderful blog) who gets up this early every weekday and goes to Mass. She's a living saint, or at least striving very hard to be one.
3) Our oldest is learning to drive and will begin driver's ed next week. I had promised I would NEVER take any of our children out driving, but necessity dictated that I must. I put in two hours with Karate Kid behind the wheel this week. She's doing a great job. I, on the other hand, need to work on my white knuckle clutching of the dashboard, frantic directions, and panicked facial expressions.
Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week. Hang in there and remember every little bit counts!
