Small Successes-July 22nd

Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. I managed to pull Ellie's birthday party together in two days.  The invitations half of them had been sent out a couple weeks before, but I didn't really have much of a plan for the party itself.  Party planning took a backseat to VBS so I was left with a couple days to pull everything together.  Overall the party turned out really well and Ellie was happy.

2. I made the in-laws happy when I brought the kids to their house for a visit on Tuesday.  We didn't stay long because the girls and I had a burial to attend for my uncle that day, but I visited them.

3. Despite having a week where life still refuses to slow down to a relaxing pace, I have managed to keep up with the laundry pretty well.  I have some that needs to be folded and a little that needs to be washed, but the important part is that I do not have any wild and out of control piles of laundry that either need to be washed or folded.  I can deal with manageable piles.


  1. I hear you on #3, and how sweet of you to visit the inlaws. I need to do that more often with my own parents....

    Blessings to you, and as always - love what you write!

  2. Sorry for your loss, congrats on a great party and keeping on top of the laundry despite general craziness.

  3. Congratulations on your successes this week!

  4. Yay for successful birthday parties!!
    Thanks for the reminder about inlaws ... I really need to make it a point to drop by with my small ones,to see my mother in law, too.

  5. Making in-laws happy and getting laundry done all in one week? No surprise you were able to pull of a last minute birthday party, too! Great job!

  6. Love #3! It's on my list too! Have a great week!
