I have the feeling that this Lent is going to be all about letting go of–giving up–the control I want to have over the hours in my day.
Resistance is futile, but acceptance is going to be hard-won, as evidenced by the mini-breakdown I experienced in the school parking lot earlier today.
1. As Sherry Antonetti and Lisa Hess both mentioned, there’s a “40 Bags in 40 Days Challenge” going on. I’m piggybacking my plan to declutter my home into this challenge. It’s a good thing.
2. I sat down and mended my husband’s pants, which is a job I really hate to do, but I got that pair done that has been sitting on top of the dryer for 2 weeks. Lucky me–there’s another pair ready to mend now that I fixed those.
3. It’s Little Brother’s birthday, and I worked it out so that his favorite Muppet could wish him a happy birthday in the local newspaper. Check it out!
Pretty cool, isn’t it?

HA!!! My mending skills are passable. My sewing-from-scratch skills are nonexistent. Now if only my husband would stop stepping on the hems of his pants…
