Small Successes Rainy June Edition

These are my small successes for the week:

1. We made it through the rainiest June on Long Island ever, without complaining about the weather.

2. I kept the pool clean in spite of the weather.

3. I took advantage of the indoor time to work on establishing my career.

4. I kept my sense of humour when my daughter broke a window with a golf ball.

This week I am thankful for:

1. Wonderful siblings who call when I really need them.

2. A terrific family in our neighborhood with four lovely girls.

3. Tan legs.

4. My cesspool has held out despite the heavy downpours.

5. A good pool filter.

6. The sun has finally come out.

7. Tan arms.

Thanks, Violin Mama. I had to go back and re-read it so I could be thankful again! Did I say tan legs twice? I'll change one to tan ARMS.

No complaining about the rain?!
How did you manage it?

Thank you so much for that Leticia! I have some people in mind to pass it on to. As to the weather, I decided early on that there was no point in complaining about something that I couldn't change, so I might as well make the best of it and smile. It also gets so boring hearing everyone state the obvious. Standing out in the rain at a ballgame people are like, golly I'm getting wet, and I'm like "golly you're a genious".
