Potty Mouth

It's recently come to my attention that I have a potty mouth. I never thought too much about it, but over the last week, I've noticed that Chloe is starting to repeat words I say. Since neither of her parents use that kind of language, I better get it under control. I'm sure that in a matter of days she'll be repeating everything I say and the last thing I need is for her to go home and drop the F Bomb. I'm kidding. That's the one word I rarely use. I just thought it sounded good.
So, I will now be paying myself a quarter for every naughty word that comes out of my mouth. (Creepy googlers are going to go nuts with that one.)
No more bad words that start with D, S or H.
My cough that I picked up over the course of today has gone from midly irritating to downright annoying. I'm starting to feel it in my chest and back. I'm hoping it's just my asthma and suffucating fog that's doing it, but we'll have to wait and see.
For now, here's a picture of what I had to (dumbly) brave to go get toilet paper and cough syrup tonight. I swear it's just getting worse out there.

A quarter for every naughty word I uttered in a day would result in a very, very, very large latte fund, but that would kind of defeat the whole thing, so who gets the quarters when you cuss?

Hope the cough goes away. I had a terrible tickle in my throat this morning that make me cough as much as when I smoked, except that once it went away, it was just gone.

I'm already down a quarter and I've only been up for an hour.

I tried this once about 10 years ago when Dylan was 6. It ended when I had to borrow back money to buy groceries. ;)

So far I'm up to 50 cents. Sadly I'll have to fill out an IOU to myself as I have NO change whatsoever.

Does it count if I think a bad word?

What the &%$# were you doing taking a picture while driving in foggy conditions? Oops! That'd be another quarter, right:-) j/k I just had to do it!
