I have to confess that I never did any ironing last week. I almost got there. I set up the iron and the ironing board. I placed one of my husband's shirts on it. I had good intentions.
But I saved it for last. And it didn't happen. Alas. I also missed last Friday's small thing (which was super easy).
However, Monday started a new week--a fresh start! Here's how I've done with my small things challenge this week:
Monday's Small Thing: Straighten up some sort of media in your home--I took on a stray cd case. I tend to not put cds back in their spot when I'm done with them.
Tuesday's Small Thing: Work on something crusty (good crusty or bad crusty): My original plan was to make a pie crust, but instead I worked on a gross crusty. So gross it must remain unnamed.
Wednesday's Small Thing: Organize something using dividers! I have already tackled my spice cabinet, so I took on the drawer of my desk, which actually took me a good 15-20 minutes. But look at the end result!
Thursday's Small Thing: Pick up the floor. Seeing as I have a crawler, I feel like I do this nonstop. I probably picked up the living room floor 3+ times.
Friday's Small Thing: No small thing! Today I am going to a playgroup, Andrew's dad is coming in from out of town, and we are eating dinner at my Chinese neighbor's house (I am finally going to learn how to make Chinese dumplings!!).
I'm not sure if this detailed account of my progress with the small things is encouraging or even interesting to you. I may be boring you out of your mind with the status of my living room floor. If so, do forgive me. Until the end of August, you are my weekly partner in accountability (how did you manage to get signed up for that?!?).
