I am not Catholic, but this year I gave up something for Lent. I gave up the ability to argue back when hubby is picking on me or giving me crap about something - which he loves to do frequently. It's all in fun, so I didn't mind giving it up - at first. I really have a hard time not giving him crap back. So, when he is picking on me about something and I am getting ready to give it back, he just says "Lent isn't over yet". This was a really bad decision. This is the second time in our marriage I took a sucker bet from him. The first time I ended up with a tattoo - yes a permanent one. You would think I would have learned from the first time.
Only 70 more days til Lent is over.
