Small Successes Volume 37

Ya know, as the school year wears on (into our 6th week) and the baby sleeps less, my small successes seem to get smaller and smaller! At this point I feel like I've succeeded if I managed to get through the day without screaming at the kids, weeping, or wishing I could have my 4:00 p.m. glass of wine at 10:30 a.m. If I gauge my week by that, I guess it's been a fairly successful week.

In truth, it's been one of those, I managed to teach, cook dinners and keep up with laundry kind of weeks. But if I have to dig around for something over and above these necessities, then I would list the following:

1) I made a monster batch of granola this week (after having it on my "To Do" list for two weeks).

2) I got my act together enough to celebrate the feast of the Archangels with the kids.

3) I have managed to squeeze in a few rows of knitting every day, and I am hoping to be done with the right front of Una's sweater this week. Then on to the sleeves!
