Small Success (Vol 5)

Small Success Thursdays at

Whoa, it has been a loooong time since I posted last. I'm not even going to go back and look at when my last post was done. It will be depressing. So, I thought what better way to start back to blogging (regularly I hope) than a Small Success post with the ladies over at

1) Despite the fact that most of the days this week have had 30+mph wind, the boys and I managed to get out and walk or play around the yard all but one day. This is a pretty big success to me as when it is that windy, I kind of just want to stay inside and cuddle up in a blanket.

2) We did this ride on Saturday:
This was on our new tandem bike:
It was very windy and it was a very rough ride!

3) I managed to shampoo the living room with our Kirby this week. It isn't meant for deep cleaning but it does look better. Jason even got a chance to see the house clean for once. It seems like even on days that I clean the house, it's a mess again by the time he gets home.

How about you?


  1. I LOVE your tandem bike, and we've had some nasty winds, too - unfortunately, the day we had our family photos taken was one of the windiest! BTW, how do you like your Kirby? We've had several Kirby salespeople at our house, and my husband always says, "WE CANNOT AFFORD IT!" :)

    1. I love our Kirby!! My husband had one before we were married, and the one we have now we bought when we were first married. I don't know if we would put the money out now. I'll tell you, we certainly didn't when the Rainbow vacuum people came by! ;-)

  2. We had a Kirby for 15 years and really liked it, but it finally died. We couldn't afford to replace it with another Kirby. Yay for clean carpets!

    What a COOL bike set up! I need to get out and at least take walks with the kids. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. What an amazing bike! How do the kids like riding in the trailers?
