    I typed this out yesterday, but something happened and my post was eaten. Technology is both amazing and incredibly frustrating. Anyway, I look forward to these “weekly win” posts because I love to hear about the good things happening in each other’s lives. I also think that when things are looking dreary and the stresses of an imperfect world seem so heavy at times, it’s nice to take a moment to focus on the good things.

    So please tell me, in the last week or so, what is something good that has happened? Did you accomplish something great? What is something you’re proud of? Do you have any exciting news to share?

    Oftentimes, my wins have something to do with animals and this week is no exception. Over the weekend, our ever-growing farm family grew a bit more as we welcomed two baby Nubian goats into our home (well, not literally our home… that’d be messy). I grew up with all kinds of animals on what you could call a small farm. I’ve always dreamed of my daughter having the same opportunities but, due to my health and the fact that I was a single mom living in a one bedroom apartment for several years, it seemed a bit out of reach. Having a home with a bit of land and a partner who also loves animals has made that dream possible. I’m thrilled to have goats again!

    Another small win? My daughter gets her second dose of the Pfizer vaccine today. She tolerated the first so well and we hope this one will also be a breeze (which was not the case for me).

    What about you? Big or small, profound or silly, what are some wins you’ve experienced recently?

    And for those interested, here is a picture of the goats, Juniper and Hazel.

    • I love your Win Posts, Jenny! I already said what I’m about to say in a post from a couple of days ago, but I basically wrote an insane amount and choreographed and insane amount in a week, and even though it was also sort of psycho and awful (?), I can’t help but feel like, “Wow. I did that”.

      Also, my girls started school a few days ago (we homeschool) and they’re loving this new online program we are doing- so that feels like a huge win. It’s the first time that I’ve sort of passed some of the “buck” to a program or digital school option, instead of literally sitting down with paper and pen and schooling together. So it’s a little bittersweet (I sort of feel like a slacker? haha) but amazing because they’re responding so well and really excited by the initial thrill of it all.

      How is school going so far for you guys?
