- We FINALLY took down these last bunch of decorations from H's 1st birthday party (that was almost 4 months ago) to prepare for for our painting project. The Mauve-of-Death I mentioned in my previous post can also be seen here. Our paint guy bears a striking resemblence to Vin Diesel....if Vin was Polish...and about a foot shorter...and had a thick Boston accent.
- I was going on a few weeks w/o a single hang nail ever since I bought a hand cream to keep at my desk at work but I slacked yesterday and noticed a couple begging for my attention. If the definintion of insanity is to repeat the same action over and over again while expecting a different outcome then call me Charlie Sheen. Everytime I see that annoying piece of skin flapping at the end of my finger, I think I can somehow bite/rip it off cleanly instead of waiting to get a pair of nail clippers only to be left with bloody, painful cuticle tears. Ok so this isn't really a small success but rather a huge fail. Let's just focus on the few weeks I was hangnail-free.
- Despite the wonderland of goodies that Jorts keeps our freezer & pantry stocked with throughout the year (but especially during the Lenten season), I have managed to stay off the wagon...or is it on...whichever means I'm being good. Other than a small piece of cake at the Diocesan Women's Conference (one of the speakers said it was close enough to Sunday and we wouldn't want any of the food to go to waste), I have stayed true to my Lenten promise. I'm 2 for 3 so far. That last one of not getting testy w/ Jorts no matter what is proving to be the biggest test of my discipline. Pray for me dear readers.
