Small Success Thursday

The Wheels came off the truck this week. Even though my daughter had spained her wrist on Friday, we'd been to a party, a softball game, mass as a family and the museum over the weekend. Monday was awesome. I was cruising along great. I was caught up on the laundry. I'd finished a book and fixed my shop vac. Tuesday rocked too. I'd had a piece published and submitted two others and I edited some work. Things were really popping. Then Wednesday happened.

Two of my daughters threw up, multiple times. Over the living room and the beds.

So now the laundry is behind.

My kids are home, listless and tired but just active enough to be frustrated by the lack of structure. I live in fear of the cascade of eventual sickees and suspect I'm just fighting through it right now.

Tonight, there is a softball game and I'm uncertain how we will manage.

So I'm stalling for time to figure things out by blogging.

But it was a great week until Wednesday. One out of 7? I'll take those odds. See you next week over at Family and Faith Live!

I hope your kids feel better soon.

I love reading Small Success Thursday. I hope you don't mind, but after reading it, I think about my own small successes and post them on twitter.

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!
