Ash Wednesday 2012

Hubby and I attended the afternoon Liturgy at our parish today. Isaiah wasn’t able to come with us this year because of school. Although I did see a lot of school aged kids. Hmm, is this something we as parents should take our kids out of school for? I don’t think I’ll be doing that, unless an Ash Wednesday in the future happens to fall on a non-school day. That will probably be unlikely.

Here we are right after the sermon.

Jerald is giving up sodas again this year. I think that’s going to be a good thing, because even his Diet soda drinking worries me. He also gave up more than a cup of rice a day (like I am). We suck, we just can’t give it up completely. More now than ever, since my parents moved in with us. You know their Filipino food cooking is going to be too hard to resist. Jerald jokingly said he’s giving up taking me shopping. Uhm, no. I don’t think that’s how it works. LOL.

He dared me to give up makeup. I figured, I can do that, thinking he meant giving up buying makeup. He really meant for me to give up wearing makeup. That seriously would be the ultimate sacrifice because I am the biggest Mommy tranny ever. I love wearing makeup. Granted, i only wear it when I have the time to actually apply it. But when I do, I love going allllll out. Whether its just an errand filled day or going out at night. After really thinking about adding this to my already proposed sacrifices, I’ve decided I couldn’t. At least not on this last minute note. Maybe next year. Hopefully by then I’ll be one hundred on my self-confidence about my facial skin tone. Especially because I now have a membership for a year of a monthly massage or a facial.

Luckily, I didn’t have anywhere I needed to be today. I didn’t have to walk around with the ashes on my forehead. I don’t mind it because in the past, I’ve always rocked it all day until it was time to cleanse my face at night. I did shower though after my little workout at home. Probably one of the first times I washed it off early.

During my workout, and it is still kinda sorta intact.

Here we go… 46 days. Weeee!
