Thursdays at CatholicMom.com begin with a look at the past week’s Small Successes!
I’ve been doing a little tidying-up around the place, since it’s too cold to GO anywhere.
My refrigerator door has gone from MESS to MESSAGE CENTER. I have a whole basket of the things I removed: soccer-team-logo magnets that The Kid wants, a big SpiderMan magnet that I should really send to Mancub, a prayer card that my grandmother kept on HER refrigerator (yes, I inherited the Stuff My Grandmother Kept On Her Refrigerator Door and most of it moved straight to mine)…but they’re not going back on the fridge. Which means I must permanently get rid of some of it before TheKid gets home from school.
On Tuesday, TheKid and TheDad had Snow Days. I cleaned out the linen closet. Bye-bye, bag of cough drops from 2012 lurking in the back corner!
I’m all out of neat accomplishments. My limit seems to be 2 per week. But that’s better than 0 per week.
I also survived a half-day of middle-school substitute teaching on 30 minutes’ notice plus a seventh-grade sleepover capped off with a waffle-eating contest. The winner had 6. Perhaps Kelloggs would like to sponsor TheKid’s next sleepover…
