Thankful on Thursday for Small Victories

On Thursday, we celebrate the dust-bunny victories that escape accolades by the rest of the world, but even I feel like I'm pushing it a bit this time around.

1) Last week was my husband's birthday and Thanksgiving. We celebrated all weekend and that included card games, touch football and a serious two hour set of rock-band. We played hard.

2) We picked up the photo Christmas cards. I now can start mailing them. It's the first time we've done a picture card in a very long time.

3) I filled out the financial aid form for Catholic Schools. (It's the mental equivalent of a half marathon).

4) Taking all the kids who can to the sacrament of Reconciliation this evening, Dinner at McDonalds.

5) Working on the very small victory of not overspending.

6) Got teenager to apply to two high schools over the weekend.

7) Found some good gifts through a catalog for nephews and nieces.

No kidding about those Catholic School financial aid applications. Couldn't have described it better myself! (I found you researching the "Ask Sister Mary Martha Hoax" -- since you asked.)

Leaving a comment is a form of free tipping. But this lets me purchase diet coke and chocolate.

If you sneak my work, No Chocolate for You!
