It's Thursday, time to list our little accomplishments for the week.
1) Skoshi A had her 10th birthday on Tuesday. As part of her celebration I took her shopping, just the two of us. She chose Toys R Us and we had a grand time browsing the aisles. The kids often surprise me with the choices they make, and Skoshi A did not disappoint. Her first choice was a super cool crystal growing kit. This is a very nice kit and fits in very nicely with our plan for science this year: earth science. Anyhoo, the small success here is Wednesday morning we actually broke open the kit and did one of the VERY messy experiments from it. Skoshi A was so excited and I can't wait to see how well the crystals grow!
2) Wingnut has been traveling a lot lately. Most of his travel is short, only a day or two, but he is taking at least two of these short trips a week. We've been trying to coordinate our workout schedule so that we are able to do our workouts together, but too often this just doesn't work out. I really depend on Wingnut for motivation and I really have to talk myself into doing the workouts on my own, but I did every last one this week. I'm pretty proud of myself for that small success.
3) If you fly with the FlyLady, we are in the bathroom and one extra room this week. We have a huge master bath, so I only focus on that, unless the laundry room really needs a cleaning. Along with all the traditional bathroom duties, I vacuumed up the cobwebs and began washing down the walls. I gave up on washing all the walls, as this is the original paint job in the house, and I began to realize it would actually be less work to paint the bathroom. Hopefully we'll see a freshly painted bathroom as a small success sometime in September.
