wow. for the past two weeks i've been trying not to whine, complain or gossip about work. i don't consider myself a lover of gossip...and i find complainers bring me down. but of all the sunday sins - this has been the hardest thus far. i think that's because it's just "talking." when it's chocolate you're trying to avoid, you are making a conscious decision not to pick it up and put it in your mouth. but talking is so ingrained - it's completely second nature and it therefore doesn't feel like something naughty. i did terribly - but i encourage you all to try this one. you'll discover just how much you do it, and how hard it is to stop!

i've had a number of people ask me if my sunday sins project has been helpful. i think that it has. even if i don't do very well at avoiding a particular vice, it creates a huge sense of awareness for it. and the upside is i'm not bingeing on whatever i've avoided after the two weeks are over.
every two weeks i look at my list to choose which vice is next. which means i always have the others in the back of my mind. so i think i've already been doing this one a little bit - avoiding buying useless craft supplies which have no purpose. for the next two weeks i will avoid buying useless craft supplies. the key term is useless - because if i need something in particular for a custom order, it's allowed.
