Happy Fat Tuesday evening, y’all!
So, even though I’m not Catholic, I’m taking the opportunity to give up a couple things for Lent. These are both things I will miss quite a bit and, well, both will probably be good for me in the end.
So, I am giving up buying yarn. When I am tempted by some lovely yarn (sock or otherwise), I won’t be purchasing it.
Second, I will be giving up the convienence of fast food. So, I will go noplace with a drive-thru except Starbucks (because coffee doesn’t count as fast food). Also included is pizza delivery, at least at home.* This will be more difficult than the previous fast food boycotts because I am hella busy during the week now with 2 classes, homework, and working a full 40 hours a week. Next Monday will be the true test of this, as I’m headed from work to my study group and I need to find dinner on the way. Or make something in the morning I can grab and go with later.
Hopefully, I’ll be able to continue the no fast food thing well past the 40 days. The yarn, well, I can’t guarantee that part, but I’m going to work really hard on working through my stash before I go buying more of the stuff. Especially since I’ve been slowly amassing enough sock yarn to outfit myself in a different pair of hand knit socks every day for at least 2 weeks.
*I can’t force my “no pizza delivery” on my study group, should it come down to a dinnertime session of homework and we need food. So, that will be the exception to the rule here.
