Small Successes

For more inspirational small successes click on the link above.

  1. Hung most of my laundry out to dry this week.  I actually enjoyed it.  But, I am looking forward to the washer and dryer (did you catch that AND) repairman visit today.  I did send a couple loads home with my MIL.  Hanging everyone's personal items out to dry while workmen were working in our backyard just didn't seem right.  Besides, my kids gasped in fear when I hung the underwear for my potty training 2 1/2 year old.  He was proud, they would have been humiliated.
  2. Entered all appointments for September and October into my outlook calendar simply for an easy to reference chart showing me all the times I need to be in 2 places at once (manage carpooling).  My lovely little calendar (which I find incredibly awesome) was looking a bit discombobulated.  Next step, plan how to get kids on opposite ends of town at the same time...many times during September.
  3. Finally began reading Master Your Metabolism, a book I bought a couple months ago on a whim.  It is very enlightening.  I already knew I had some issues with hormonal imbalance, but other than my sluggish thyroid I had no idea all the rest impacted weight loss too.  I guess that's the place to start.  And my next book will be The Schwarzbein Principal.

And.....I didn't cry when the repairman said it would take 10 days to get the parts for both my washer and dryer :(

      I always chuckle when I see underwear on a clothes line. I would have been totally mortified as a kid if my mom had hung mine out on the clothes line. We had a neighbor who used to do it all the time and my mom couldn't stand having to look at all the underwear flapping in the breeze.

      I grew up with hanging clothes out to dry -- so, on the rare occasion that I do it, it brings back so many wonderful memories for me. Congratulations on your week!

      I wish we could hang our laundry. Feasibly we could, since we have the space for it, but with dogs and pollen it hasn't happened. Yet. (I noted in my SS--it's always the laundry, isn't it?)

      I've been here before--love your blog title, ladies!
