Small Successes


This week's successes!

1. We have three huge boxes of Rice Krispies® from when a certain person in the house was on a cereal and banana kick, plus a store-brand, cocoa version of the cereal. The kids and I made Rice Krispies® treats, a regular batch and a chocolate batch! It was fun and everyone helped.

2. Our new chore system (which is really not so new but recently tweaked and re-implemented) seems to be working. Thank you, Dave Ramsey commission worksheets!

3. The laundry room is almost empty of dirty clothes. This will change this afternoon. But I am as close to caught up as I ever am. (Some of you know that there is no such thing as "caught up" in a big family. If by some quirk of fate you get every single piece of laundry in the hamper washed, you don't even have to wait for the evening's baths--just walk through the bathrooms and bedrooms. Somebody has left theirs on the floor.

What are your successes?

Great successes! I always struggle with laundry, so it's great to see yours is almost caught up!

Lynn said...

you don't need a big family for #3 to happen. The 5 of us are good for filing up the hamper shortly after emptied. Especially my 9 year old boy!

Mary said...

Great list of successes! My laundry hamper is never empty. Maybe one day. Have a fabulous week!

Rice crispy treats... yum!

I might have to check out the chore system... not for kids but for myself :).

Congrats on a great week!
