1. This is big. Really big. In fact, it shouldn't even qualify as a "small" success. But considering I don't do "Huge Success Friday" I have nowhere else to post this. So here it goes. After two agonizing years of verbal abuse, I quit one of my jobs. There. I said it. I did it. I actually did it. Will I be able to pay my student loans? Who knows. Is the daily sense of dread gone? Heck yes.
2. I've had baby chicks for five days and none of them are dead! Okay, my fears of being an irresponsible owner are validated... I've let their water run dry twice and forgot to lower the heat lamp one night. But they're still alive, and apparently healthy!! They're so much more forgiving than geraniums!
3. I've made three better-than-store-quality (with no high fructose corn syrup, modified corn starch, modified whey protein, xantham gum, carrageenan, guar gum, and whatever other dubious substrates are always in there) batches of ice cream! Epic diet fail, but huge culinary success! And my husband is thrilled (he's an ice cream fiend).
They're not actually hosting Small Successes at Faith & Family this week, but I had to post this anyway.
