small successes (vol.60)...

"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 cannot believe we are one week away from Christmas! WOW! I am in a serious time warp continuum because I think it should still be September. This weekend is the last push for wrapping and such. I successfully purchased/made everything in the last six weeks. I have to put a hem in Court's dress and we are ready to go. Before you know it, it will be Lent!

Someone actually asked me the other day what my New Year's resolution would be for next year. After I stood there for a few seconds dazed and confused, I told them I didn't have a clue. This lead me to read my posts last year to find out what I had been so resolute about then. I read the list, sunk into a deep dark depression, ate 2 dozen Christmas cookies followed by eggnog spiked with rum and determined to never, ever make another New Year's resolution! My year has been an EPIC FAIL in the resolution category.
My success? I have no idea. I just felt the need to vent.

I am almost done with my menu worksheets based on what's in the freezer/pantry to minimize my spending in the coming New Year. It's amazing what hides in the back of your pantry. 20 cans of tuna anyone? Scary!

Blessings and Grace.
