I haven’t exactly been partying it up around here, haha! My plan for this day is an appointment with my oncologist, and then cooking all sorts of goodies to celebrate the fact that it is Mardi Gras. I may even wear some beads. 😉
I asked the kiddos and Lara what they were planning to give up for Lent, and I got the blank stare. I’m going to try to make some modifications to my language. Over the past year, I have become quite the potty mouth, and I can’t say I’m all that proud of it. I have a tendency to use profanities when I experience pain. Once upon a time this translated to using a bad word when I stubbed a toe, or banged into something. I experienced enough pain in the past year that I have found too many curse words making their way into my daily conversation.
So, there is my Lenten (and let’s face it, rest of my life) change that I want to make. No more cussing for Momma here. Will this make me a better person? Well, okay, not exactly — but it will make it possible for me to go out and about in public without inserting a foot in my mouth. Hmmmm. I suppose I can still do that without swear words, can’t I?
I hope you all indulge yourselves at least a little bit today! I will come back later to let you know what the oncologist is reporting for my tumor markers. 🙂
Blessings to you all…xoxo
