I hope you had a nice Memorial Day if you celebrate. We spent the day playing, working, and relaxing. I took my laptop to the driving range so I could write while the Husband golfed. I grabbed a beer from the club â€“ so refreshing. Writing + beer = my two favorite things (when both are done in moderation!).
We played badminton all night long in the front yard, too â€“ that was fun! The Husband and I are constantly trying to beat our back-and-forth pass record. Right now, weâ€™re at 58 passes, which I consider pretty impressive. Good times!

Stop Cursing Challenge Update
Time for an update on my
hellish efforts to stop cursing!
About two months ago, I decided to try to clean up my potty mouthâ€¦
I have to say that things are going really well! My cursing frequency has greatly decreased just by thinking how much I want to stop cursing and by correcting myself when I curse out loud. Also, not cursing has forced me to be more creative with my verbal description of events (instead of just saying, â€œthat is so f**king cool!â€). Iâ€™ve also tried pretending Iâ€™m around children all the time when Iâ€™m in group settings â€“ that helps!
Basically, my potty mouth was a bad habit, and Iâ€™ve definitely been able to phase it out!
