This is the dumbest thing in the world to blog about, but I am just ridiculously pleased with myself. I managed to get the garbage out tonite. All of it: paper recycling, cans and plastic, green waste and regular waste. The kitty litter, too.

Some of the boxes that had been just kind of hanging around the house are now out at the curb and will be gone by tomorrow.

Yesterday, I wrote about small kindnesses. Today I am thinking about small triumphs. How something as silly as getting the garbage out on time (after weeks of forgetting), can make your day better.
