Bring It... Or Maybe Not


1. Am starting NFP charting again (after giving up in futility last October).

2. Finished a 54 day Rosary novena!

3. Am NOT going over the grocery budget this month and have lived 2 WEEKS without butter (and this coming from the wife who routinely uses 1/2 a pound a week for baking and toast).

Bonus #4. After battling the blues, unsuccessfully, for a few weeks, I finally went to Confession (when it wasn't even a Saturday afternoon). Ah, the sweet mercy of God!

Check out others' small successes, this week at Faith & Family Live.

Whoever said that having your femur bone cracked in half is the most pain a human can experience... well, they've clearly never dislocated their pinky toe on a couch corner.

And then popped it back into place.

And then hosted a youth group night.

But knowing my luck lately, perhaps it'd be better not to take any chances with that good ol' femur.

WOW! a 54 day rosary novena! Good for you! I have trouble saying it daily for a week.

2 weeks without butter? talk about penance! I LOVE my butter. How on earth did you manage that!?!

Congratulations on all your successes! What a great week!
