Lent

Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the start of Lent and I'm going big with my give-ups this year, even posting them to keep me honest.

I'm giving up sugar/sweets. This is so hard. I'm also giving up TV (except a little news) which pains me since The Voice, The Amazing Race, and Celebrity Apprentice all just started, not to mention Smash, which I love, even though it's on too late for me. No night time TV will keep me on track with revisions. Unless I read instead.

I just finished my last latte, as I'm giving up lattes. I bought a Keurig for my birthday last September as an attempt to kick the latte habit but I haven't been able to so far. Maybe I can do it for Jesus.

Also, the family doesn't know it, but we're all giving up restaurants, fast food, and school lunches. Mom must cook more. Imagine the money we'll save, even though we only go out a few times a month. It adds up.

I can do this, it's only 40 days, right?
