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) I gave the master bathroom a good thorough cleaning. It’s only a half-bathroom, but tucked away in the back corner of the house it doesn’t get much attention. The dust bunnies were rampant! Well, no longer.
2) I finished unpacking! Huzzah! Part of the impetus was to clear out the bags as Haus Meister was being sent on a week’s trip to China and would need one of them.
3) I started getting the school bookcase ready for the upcoming year. Target had a new stock of plastic bins that I use for our workboxes, so I stocked up on a few more. Now I just need to reapply the velcro numbers on the boxes and sift through the books to make sure only the books for our monthly themes are in this bookshelf (we have something like eight or nine bookcases in the house, so it’s easy for books to “travel” from one case to the next). I’m really quite excited about getting ready for the new school year.
