Lenten Progress

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.

Sigh.

It’s going to be a long 40 days…

Hope you’re enjoying the weekend! :)

      I know, I feel like I’m torturing myself for no good reason lol. Guess I’m trying to build character and all that haha.

      I am not in Montreal, sorry!! Perhaps you can let me know what the q is and I’ll try my best to help! I have friends there!

    Shoppers Drug Mart is the devil!!! ;) (Especially now that they updated the Beauty Boutique section with Benefit, Dior, Guerlain, etc…!!!)

    Sounds like you’re being strong. Good luck!
