After realizing I really didn't want to give up sweets or coffee, and giving up alcohol wouldn't really count since I haven't had any in like 16 months anyway, I decided to give up complaining for lent. It's hard! (Uh-oh, does that count?) I knew I'd slip so I made complaint jars for work and home. Each time I complain I throw in a quarter. We're on day three and, well, quarter three. But I certainly am complaining less, and that feels good. I haven't decided what I'll do with the money at the end, but it'll probably go to Pumpkin's piggy bank. It kind of defeats the purpose if I use it to get something for myself ... like a coffee ... or a sweet.
