Small Success Thursday - March Madness edition

My husband graduated from the University of Dayton in 2005. We were married with 2 kids, so I take credit for supporting him during that time. So I am proudly wearing one of his UD shirts in honor of their appearance in a Sweet 16 game tonight.

But this week has felt rather routine, even though it is a new routine. My 14YO's rec soccer league started practices. We got an email Sunday form the coach that practice would be Tuesday. Sunday was busy with his band concert, so Monday we went to buy new cleats, etc. We went to the Soccer store near us and brought home a pair of cleats that cost north of $160. One of those I did not realize until I was looking at the receipt since we also got a goalie jersey and gloves. Good grief, for Recreational soccer. So took my Lunch hour on Tuesday to the big-box sporting goods store near my office and found a reasonable-priced Men's sized  13 soccer cleats. My son declared them good and I returned the expensive ones.

I have been making my breakfast  this week and lunch 3 of the 4 day since lunch out was planned for Wednesday. Sometime sit is hard to do that. I am also trying ta eat an apple per day. I am not much of a fruit eater. Give me vegetables instead.

Actually made an appointment to have my hair cut on Saturday. I like to keep my hair short. But I hate making the stupid appointment. But it is done and scheduled for Saturday.

Why does this all seem so lame.. I guess I am getting up each day and going to work, the kitchen is stocked with food to keep us from starving, my son is getting to the places and activities he wants to. So I am accomplishing my mission as wife and Mom.

Small Success Thursday

Back at it again this week. I am really hoping winter goes away soon. I was sad that I was unable to make a Mass for ashes, but my vocation of a Wife and Mom has me working full time, being at home to cook dinner and meetings the window salesman Hubby had made an appointment with.

1. I said "yes" to chaperoning a group of High School students (plus my 8th grader) to an overnight Jazz festival. Hubby has gone in the past with the older boy, but he is taking an online class for the next few weekends. I drove up and back with another Mom for company ans the "girl time", which sorely lacks in my life, was just what I needed.

2. I was able to elicit smiles form my 8 week old Grandson. How delightful!

3. Working from home today. I was on the fence since I made arrangements to WFH on Thursday's so I can get my 14YO to Jazz band practice at the High school. But no practice today. So I was going into the office. But the uber-healthy 14YO is miserable with a cold and decided to stay home. I find myself giggling because his behavior is so uncharacteristic. He just does not know what to do. I cheerfully filled his glass with water when I went down to get myself a glass of water.
