My Lent 2019 Book List Plans

Is this the year you really want to dive into Lent? Do you want to come out of this Lenten Season and truly feel that you've had a small share of living in the desert with Christ for 40 days? I know that I do. Maybe it's an upcoming birthday that's making me have more of a now-or-never type of attitude towards Lent. Or maybe I just acutely feel the necessity of truly modeling this for my children, and living it with my husband. Whatever it is, these are the books and resources I'm going to use this Lent to really LIVE the season from Ash Wednesday all the way through to Easter Vigil. Look them over. If something looks helpful to you, use it. If it inspires you, go with it. I hope all of these bless and encourage you.

25 bad things about

25 bad things about my kids or ranting of a slightly depressed housewife and mother.

1. They can’t spell. Must be genetic because Mr. Pete has a congenital spelling problem as well.
2. They’re slobs. Also genetic. Probably from my side though, although I’m sure my sister will say that that particular genetic mutation occurred solely at my conception.
3. They fight with each other over stupid things.
4. They couldn’t keep a quiet household if I paid them. They yell, bump, stomp, laugh, slam and are just generally noisy. Funny how I became more aware of that as I have been trying to keep the baby asleep.
5. They watch too much television and play too many video games for my taste.
6. They complain about their school work
7. I’ve caught them in lies.
8. When provoked, the older one can let out a string of obscenities that would make any saint blush.
9. None of them are forward thinkers. They all live for the moment and that drives me crazy.
10. Their handwriting also leaves much to be desired.
11. Left to their own devices they are sort of lazy too.
12. One of them wears his clothes so many days in a row that they become part of his molecular structure. I literally have to sneak them away to the washer when he’s in bed!
13. They don’t appreciate what they have enough.
14. They don’t pray enough
15. I feel like they have no clue how much things cost.
16. They act like I have to pay them for every little chore! “Mom you owe me 2 bucks for emptying the dishwasher!”
17. They eat all of their food for lunch before I even get a chance to sit down!
18. They’re kind of geeky.
19. One of them stutters and another one is literally indecipherable, although I’m hoping that will change when those front teeth come in!
20. They all have the innate ability to turn their ears off when my voice waves hit the tympanic membranes.
21. Some of them eat too much.
22. Some of them throw good food away.
23. All of them could walk over dog poop in the living room and never get a bag to pick it up and throw it out.
24. They know more about the current video games than they do about current events.
25. The only good songs they know they learned from Shrek and Shrek 2. The rest of their repertoire is crap.
