Small Success Thursday: Trick-or-Treat Edition

Happy Halloween! And Happy Small Success Thursday, where the fans of get together and give ourselves a gold star for getting through the week despite whatever challenges life throws our way.


Look! We even have a spiffy new logo! (Dorian, you rock!)

Want to play along? Just trumpet 3 (or more) accomplishments you’ve made this week.

1. It’s Halloween, and I’ve had the candy in the house for 3 weeks now. I didn’t break into it. Those who know me know just how big a deal that is. But once I turn off the porch light tonight, all bets are off and all leftovers are mine.

2. Finally I can sing a whole song without stopping to cough. It only took 4 weeks and a really expensive inhaler. Boy, it feels good to sing out!

3. I haven’t “lost it” yet. I’m hanging in there. Caregiving is not my best subject, but I have managed to get through yet another week without breaking down or taking it out on anyone else. I saw this on Facebook–it really sums me up:

keep calm and carry on

Hook up with us over at and celebrate YOUR small successes!

  1. Love #1.
    I like that graphic from FB. I am both of those. I am calm for a long time. But eventually, I combust!
    Hugs and prayers, Barb.

  2. I’ve been hitting the candy on a regular basis for the past month–I’m just glad that there was still some left for tonight! 🙂
