Small Success Thursday

It's Thursday and yes I'm late in posting but last night, I got to watch Catholicism on EWTN and fell asleep on the couch instead of preemptively writing this piece.  

First, this week: 

1) I went to confession. 
2) went swimming with four of my kids at a birthday party.
3) Got to see friends this weekend.
4) Went shopping with my teen for her dress.
5) Saw the same daughter in an Improv show on Friday.
6) Stayed on budget. 
7) Introduced husband and some of my children to Fr. Barron's Catholicism series. 

Also: This week's goal: I plan to finish reading my book.

How do you play? Count your blessings, list your victories, celebrate your successess that this week added up to a lot of love for those around you.  It's a fun way to pat yourself on the back and take stock of how things are going.   If you don't have a blog, list your celebratory moments in the com box.  Otherwise, (Mr. Linky willing), I can't wait to see what all of you have been up to! 

Now it's your turn. I'd also ask all of you to invite one friend to join in, so we can grow this group.

1. I have walked or exercised everyday since last Friday. Does that count as 6 small successes?
2. Managed to raise $1,790 for the Walk to End Alzheimer's.
3. Wrote at least 15 Thank you notes, but more to go.
4. Had lunch with a friend.
5. Invited two non relatives to come for Thanksgiving Dinner.

Wow! You've had a great week :) I'm hoping to catch up on the Catholicism series over the weekend - it was just too late for me to stay up last night :(

Yes. You stayed on budget. You have a budget. That's impressive. Found yur blog by the humorist site. Does it have to be Thursday to link up? I need to count my small sucesses. Surely I must gave some.

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