It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
I suppose I’ve given this blogpost a rather bombastic title, but this past week I determined to procrastinate no longer on some jobs around here that I knew I ought to accomplish.
1: Shredding paper clutter. I had obsolete bills from 2007 still sitting in my file box! The children enjoyed watching the shredder in action. At one point I feared they would want me to shred every piece of paper in the house.
2: Working on the 40 bags in 40 days challenge. I tackled areas I’d rather not go–like under my bed, or the back of my closet. Then, when dealing with things I knew the children didn’t need/want anymore–but which they would suddenly decide they did if they saw it (old bath toys, for instance) –I felt like I was in some sort of espionage stunt. I always seemed to be sneaking around them to hide things in the donation box or chuck into the outside trash can. 😉
3: Mending!!! This is the task that I manage to finish in ten minutes or less sometimes. I am always ashamed at how quickly I am finished with it, especially as the article to be mended has usually been lying on my sewing table for several weeks–even months. Well, I managed to fix four things with a whirr of my sewing machine in about 20 minutes tops. It really is pathetic how I put off that job.
