Home » Small Successes » Staycation and School’s Close #SmallSuccess

I took a week (sort of) off and staycationed last week. This week, as I battle a few personal challenges, I’m feeling particularly small in my successes.

2014-08-10 13.45.26

1. I’ve allowed myself some extra rest this week. And oh, it has helped tremendously.

2. We went to a playdate with some friends. It meant I didn’t stay plugged into a computer all day, that the kids got to play together, and that I talked books for a few minutes.

3. I’m reading a book just for fun. Because my 9yo asked me to.

Now: your turn!

    Sounds like an awesome week. Thanks for making me sound far more poetic and profound than I actually am by your editing.

    Guilt free downtime = awesome time! And #3, Wow! I should be so willing.
