Small Successes


My small successes for the week:

I finally got the car into the auto shop after I backed into another car in the church parking lot a little under a month ago. The shop had gotten the parts in a couple of weeks ago, but I just didn't get it in because of harvest. Bonus, they got it done in one day, so I was able to pick it up after our Religious Education classes yesterday.

I cleaned the whole house (okay, at least the upstairs...and I washed our exchange students sheets and she cleaned her bathroom...otherwise the basement was left alone) on Saturday and Sunday...and it is not completely trashed yet and it is Thursday! Woo hoo! Although, mostly that is due to the fact that I am hosting my Bible study tonight and I have been more on top of things this week because of it.

I finally bought myself some new clothes...I hate shopping for me (I'd much rather shop for the girls!) but I was looking at the fall weather and what clothes I had available for fall, and thought I'd better get some more cool weather clothes. So, I got a pair of jeans and a pair of slacks (should've gotten two pairs of jeans, but one ended up being out of stock) that I absolutely love (Lane Bryant Right Fit), and I got three shirts and a new pair of PJs. I've also done some shopping for hubby (more jeans and t-shirts...he rips through them a lot working with the cows) and Eva and Charlotte (winter PJs, new robes, and some sweat pants).

Sounds like a great week for you!!

Remember in HS when we would go spend hours at the mall just looking for dresses???? fun, cute, summery dresses.

I'm not to the point where I hate shopping for me yet. Although I'm close. Good thing we have no money to spend.
