It was a rainy, quiet sort of day. Rather than focus on a to do list, I instead made a mental list of accomplishments. I find this is better for me. Stains treated, laundry started. Bathroom cleaned. Math lesson finished. Two little girls with new knitting. Beatrix’s first solo stitches.
Later, when Silas started throwing up and Beatrix joined him, I was very grateful that I had gotten the bathroom cleaned. Sometimes the smallest thing, makes facing the days that turn yucky a little bit easier.
