Small Successes-August 26th

Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. This weekend Bryan knocked out the basement stairwell wall and created a toy storage closet and a larger opening at the bottom of the stairs.  I call the closet our "cupboard under the stairs."  The job isn't completed, but I'm already loving it.

2. With obsessive vacuuming and genius forethought of hanging up plastic drop cloths we managed to keep the debris and dust from the demolition of the basement wall to an absolute minimum.  Every time Bryan had to haul debris out to the driveway I moved in with my shop vac and cleaned up the work area.

3. After a year of procrastinating, I finally finished coloring in the bingo cards I brought for my CCD class last year.  I had them mostly colored in last August when I got hit with the flu but I simply couldn't bring myself to finish coloring the remaining squares. I was a little irritated with myself when I realized that I couldn't use this game for an entire year of teaching CCD because I was too lazy to color 12 (yes, only 12) more little pictures.  I'm so happy that it's done.

Be sure to check out my book giveaway of Fr. Mark Mossa's Already There.
