Celebrating the little things…
1. I put away the swing. 😦 I am always sad to see it go. It is like a confirmation that my newborn is no longer a newborn. This is more like a medium success though – the box for it is in the back corner of the girls’ closet and I have to pull everything out of it to get to it. Right now it is the only box on the floor of their closet. I haven’t put the rest back yet, but the swing is away.
2. I survived Ash Wednesday without any sweets. I’ve given up sweets for lent. I’m going through severe withdrawl. After every meal I’m craving something … anything… sweet. I thought about having fruit for dessert but somehow dessert on Ash Wednesday doesn’t seem to go together even if I can’t officially fast with Elizabeth still nursing.
3. I remembered to get out a book to specifically read for Lent. I’ll still be reading other things of course, but I literally remembered at 9pm on Ash Wednesday but I still got some read last night.
