Small Successes :: November 19, 2009

"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 already mentioned it in this week's daybook, but I am so pleased that I finally stain treated (thanks for the tip on Bio Kleen!), washed, and put away all the 0-3 month baby girl clothing! Now I am starting to feel a little more prepared for our little one to arrive.

Our refrigerator/freezer stopped working Monday. It isn't that old! At least I didn't think it was... I was thinking it had to be around 3 years old, hubby thought it hadn't even been that long. Turns out we bought it in January of 2004, nearly 6 years ago... Wow!

Anyhow, it forced gave me the perfect opportunity to deep clean it... After two long afternoons of sorting through thawed food, cooking way too much (including a delicious blackberry-raspberry cobbler using this recipe), throwing out what couldn't be salvaged, and then scrubbing for hours after the repair man was able to fix the problem, it almost looks new again! Now, if only I had the energy to go grocery shopping...

I assembled one of Twinkle Toes Christmas gifts all by myself! (Usually I ask hubby to do these sorts of things, but he has been working really long days...) Oh, it is SO cute!!!

What are your Small Successes this week?

Stop by Faith and Family Live to read more of this week's Small Successes.


  1. Wow, you've been kept busy. No rest for the already exhausted, huh. ;)

    I love getting out all the teeny tiny baby clothes, washing and making things ready for the new little one. It feels good to be prepared and warms my heart thinking of my other children when they were babies.*sigh*

    I'm sorry you had to deal with your fridge/freezer melting down on you. Ugh, that's a lot of work to cook, clean and salvage. I am glad that you were able to catch it in time and that nothing was lost though.

    Thank you for sharing your successes and may God bless you.

    btw, thank you for your kind comments and your prayers. I really appreciate it. :)

  2. Ohhh...teeny, tiny baby clothes. How wonderful! Congratulations to you and your husband. What a wonderful Christmas gift.
    Love your blog. I have lurked for some time and was excited to see you on Faith and family so I thought I would visit.
    The freezer looks fabulous! Happy shopping (after nap time of course)
    Blessings and Grace~

  3. I think we have the same refrigerator! Mine is NO WHERE NEAR as clean. It looks beautiful! Nice job. ;)
