Small Success -Examining the to-do list

Why is it so hard to find my successes. These are supposed to be small things. So let's go to my to do list:

  • Work on a Quilt - Nope
  • color my hair - yes, last night - Can I get a woo-hoo?
  • Cook Dinner - Monday was yes, Tuesday, leftovers, Last night - Hubby worked late. DS15 believe she got his Nephew's cold, so he wanted Chicken soup. Know what Chick soup looked like? A can of low sodium chick broth, water and concentrated stock, egg noodles cooked in the former and a couple of small cans of chicken thrown in. It is all gone.
  • Prepare chicken and noodles for 24 band kids on Friday. I cooked 2 whole chickens (ironically while making the above soup). I cooked them from frozen, and even got them deboned. 
  • Prepare 20 brownies for tailgating lunch at school. - Not yet, tonight. 
  • Take my grandson to get real shoes since he is walking and it is getting colder out. - His cold was making him unhappy hen i kept him Tuesday. We will try again tonight. 
Not so bad when I take a good look. I needed this this week.

Small Success Thursday - Sept 18

Hello everyone,

I started a post last week, but enumerating successes was hard. So I am back.

  • Stood in for Hubby presiding over the Band Boosters meeting while he was out of town. Just call me Edith Wilson. 
  • I have been successful at not breaking down at my teenager's emotional pendulum swings this week. He was very grumpy when I was able to make it school to pick him up. I understand having to sit around and wait is frustrating. but my job pays his tuition. Although he did say that he thinks this Catholic school was a much better choice than  he local public school. It is just too bad the public school district decided to punish parents for levy failures by eliminating busing for high schoolers...
  • Sunday I defrosted mt freezer. Hubby and DS were getting frustrated that there were not the usual heat a serve-type dished there, but I needed to get is emptied to the point where I could get everything in the freezer of the refrigerator. Coming up, a trip to Costco... 
Jump on over to Catholic Mom to share and celebrate the little successes we all forget about.

It is Small Success Thursday...

Hi Folks, Here I am again, it is Thursday.

1. Last Friday was the first High School Football game of the season. We made it. The band is smaller (again) this year. So Sad. But the school is known for it's athletics. But here is a gratuitous picture of a couple of my favorite guys:

2. Last night was "meet the teacher" night. Hubby was fighting a cold, so I went by myself. I have to say my son is really enjoying the High School.

3. Biting my tongue about someone who gets so excited and posts videos of a certain almost 8-month-old (Pictured above)  walking and tags me. Sometimes I'd like to share family news with my Facebook friends and family my own way, not necessarily someone else' s video. Besides, He was doing that at my house earlier that same day. I just did not take video of it. LOL! 

So Check out Catholic Mom for more.
