Small Successes -- March 31, 2011

This morning I am joining Danielle Bean over at Faith & Family Live  and celebrating small successes.  "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."
  1. Invested a few hours to check out options to rent or lease a piano for our nine-year old daughter who is starting piano lessons.   Found place on the south side of city with reasonable rates.  Hubby took an afternoon off work and we headed in, did the paperwork and bought home a full-size digital piano.  She is delighted!!!

  2. Finished the free pre-blogging course and enrolled in Blogging 101. [I'm really having fun exploring  catholic blogs that inspire me in my vocation as wife and mother and I'm REALLY enjoying working on my own blog.  Maybe a little too much fun, 'cause I had to wrack my brain to come up with three successes this week...and one of them was connected to blogging!]                                                     
  3. Spending lots of time this week with kids who are on spring break and hubby, who has taken a few days off work.  Spent an afternoon in city doing kid shopping errands. Checked out Gnomeo & Juliet at the theatre. Cute! Hit the slopes at our local  ski hill...gorgeous sunny day! Today the kids are setting up for an extended version of monopoly (this includes major snacks) and later we are checking out a new pool/rec center in the city when Dad gets of work this afternoon..  Tomorrow Dad is off and we are going to a 'major' sledding hill and then to see  HOP!
      Bonus: Reconnected with a couple long-lost friends via email and spent time catching up!
