I'm Failing

My lent vow is failing me. I'm really trying not to cuss but it seems this was the worst week to stop.

You see, my mom is in town as I mentioned previously, which means there is scrabble and various other board games to play which means there is cussing to be said.

You know what's even worse? I forget to not cuss, and then as soon as I say something naughty, I quickly bash myself for saying it, by saying something along the lines of "shit, I just cussed". "damn it, I did it again"


I feel like a complete failure. I guess the positive side is I'm becoming more aware of my potty mouth, so maybe in time, while I become more aware of the things coming out of my mouth it will come more naturally to choose a different word.


Or, if that doesn't work, my mom said she can wash my mouth out with soap as she once did when I was a kid for saying a whole series of bad words in one sentence in a mean demeanor.


I've always had a smart mouth, and swear words have always been apart of that. But not for long, I tell ya! I'm gonna beat this! :)

Oh Man, not cussing is hard. It took me six months to stop saying "God" when I broke myself of that habit. It's hard but keep trying!

PS- You're right about Oregon being CA transplants -- by hubby is the opposite. He grew up in Oregon and now never wants to leave CA!
