Paying it Forward

Today is Mardi Gras, don't laugh your face will crack.






TOF refused to wear the mask, it scared him and it was a shame to waste such a beautiful work of art. I think it's an improvement, think of all the time you'd save applying makeup. I'm on to something, I just know it.

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday. That would be the reason you see all those people at Walmart with the big ole black dot on their forehead. It's the first day of Lent, a time of repentance and sacrifice.

I'm not really good at remembering that I gave something up for Lent anymore. In my first marriage it was really easy, I gave up sex. Yup you heard it, I really did and the sperm donor gave up beer. So rather than give something up I usually try to be a nicer person.

So when I came upon this post at Mom is in the Fishbowl, I thought BINGO, I can do this! This is how it works... The first 3 people to leave a comment on this post and post about this on your own blog will receive a hand made gift from me during this year. When and what it will be is a big surprise!!

BUT, in order for you to leave a comment on my blog, you have to post this on your blog first. (that means that sometime during this year you will send a gift to 3 people as well.) Get it? So, rush over to your blog, post this and then come back here and leave me a comment! The first 3 people to comment on this post will be the lucky ones!


Good luck!

Yay! I'm number 4, the pressure is OFF!! lol

Nice mask! I would think TOF would rather be looking OUT from the mask than having his mema grinning at him lol Isn't it funny what spooks them?

So was there a significance that YOU gave up sex but the sperm donor was only giving up beer?? I mean, it does take two ...

Bummer. I'm number 5. I love the mask! I'll try it when I'm looking a bit tired.

Michelle said...

Oh I saw this ... somewhere else and thought it was such a neat idea.

I tried explaining Lent to Mister Man earlier today. I have a feeling that it may end up being tomorrow's post ;)

I'm too late! WAHHHHHHHH!

I seriously think you 've got something with the whole mask concept, though! I have to work at the school today -- maybe the little bugger will behave better if I wore one?!

Yay for paying it forward! That's good of you.
I just came from the grocery store where the woman in front of me let me go in front of her cause I only had 4 things. That absolutely made my day, and I made sure she knew that.
Random acts I tell ya, random acts.

What a cute idea! And I'm loving the mask! Aiden's not big on masks either. He worries that he won't be able to breathe!
