So it’s Day Four of my Lent experiment, and so far so good. I encountered my first hurdle today when we passed the Shoppers Drug Mart – just in general my heart perks up when I see that red & white sign and think of the possibilities within. My first thought was “Ah, we should browse around for a bit,” but then I realized that for the next 40 odd days, the store will not bring me the usual joy it imparts. Often I just peruse the aisles aimlessly, half of the time not buying anything – but now, with the purchasing restriction in place…well, we all know what happens when we can’t have something: we want it even more (hello, LE products!). So it’s probably best for me to refrain from tempting myself that way at all.
It’s going to be a long 40 days…
Hope you’re enjoying the weekend!
