Small victories, on paper

I’ve succeeded! I previously wrote about making an effort to reduce the amount of junk on my lawn. I put my name in a couple of registries and have a noticeable drop of in junk mail (particularly credit card applications, thank goodness). Additionally, I escalated my problem with The Examiner again and again. After four calls and emails, nothing had happened. Then I decided to go “old school”: for some reason, it seems to be the sort of thing my parents would do, but I called the Better Business Bereau. Sure enough, that got their attention and now I don’t have to throw away a soggy newspaper every day.

It’s the little victories that make one’s day a little happier.
