It’s Ash Wednesday, which means it’s the first day of Jewish Lent for me.
Yes it’s a real holiday. I know because I invented it last year. You can read all about 2012’s Jewish Lent right here. I tried to give up complaining, but you know. It was tooooo harddddd. So this year I decided to give up something equally as vague—I’m no longer going to give in.
Children, “Buy me this. Get me that. Feed me dinner. Brush my hair.”
Husband, “Be nice to me. Don’t create a tornado in the closet.”
Cat, “Change my litter. Give me fresh water.”
Dog, “Let me outside. Rub my belly.”
Ugh so demanding.
