LIttle Victories

"Little Victories". Those two words have been on my mind all day. Our apartment is a mess and I haven't felt like cleaning it. I'm in that 'not quite sick, but not well' stage and it won't go away. I made it to church yesterday long enough to teach my lesson before I bailed. Came home and watched Smallville for the rest of the day.

We got a counter bid for the home we want. It wasn't great and I think we will loose it. I inquired today, about another home in that same area only to find out that it's been taken off the market. Grr! If we don't get this one we are back at square one and I'm going to go C-R-A-Z-Y!!

So back to "Little Victories". I've decided that instead of cleaning our appartment I would create little victories. I started with the desk. "Just clean it off and you'll win", I told myself. Low and behold it worked and the desk is now clean. I did the same thing with the dishes an hour later and ta-da, the dishes are clean. Two little victories down a million to go.


  1. So true on the Little Victories aspect. I sometimes get in moods where it seems there's soooo much to do I don't know where to begin. Good to focus on one small thing and let it snowball. I've got tons to do before I go to bed tonight, so I'll remember this post and tell myself "little victories" to get myself through. Thanks!

  2. Kinda like baby-steps toward sanity ... a little "What about Bob?" humor as encouragement! :)

    Thanks for visiting Snapshots :)

  4. I'm all about little victories, especially with the kids! "You're screaming at the top of your lungs because your sister took the fake hamburger bun that you were JUST about to go play with even though it was two rooms over?" Deep breath, deep breath. "Okay, at least said sister handed you one just like it and the drama stopped." HOORAY!
