Lent

Well, its that time of year again, Lent.


For those of you who have visited before, I usually give up swearing for Lent. The thought behind this is it supposedly takes 21 days to break a bad habit. I figure 40 days of Lent is time to break the habit and then some. As this is my third year giving up swearing, the logic is obviously not fool proof.


Every time I swear, I have to skip a meal so a good portion of those 40 days is spent surly in near starving conditions.


Maddie's class was asked what each of them would be giving up for Lent, here are their responses:
If you click on it, you'll notice that my daughter gave up refrigerator magnets! Honestly. Thank you for your sacrifice Jesus, I'm giving up fridge magnets. You've got to be shitting me....there went breakfast.

You are hilarious! You and ChiTown girl with the language (me too, if I'm honest - but not in print). =)

Your sweet girl must LOVE refrigerator magnets - that's so cute! I hope all goes well for both of you in Lent.

That is so funny. I suppose she really, really loves her fridge magnets????
Maybe instead of skipping meals, you can give yourself a little taste of soap??? :) It worked for me.

My 6 year old asked me what a "fucking tragedy" was this evening. Maybe I should look into this great new diet of yours...
