Default Lent....Day 1!

Hi All!

Been busy lately, but cleaning the house today, and decided to check in.

It's now Day 1 of no JD for CA, and anyone who saw me on the cruise last year will know that I am going to be a real pain in the a** this year...'cause I have given up my chocolate!

If Cruiseaholic can go until Easter without the JD, then I will follow along without the chocolate!

So anyone else joining us!?

By the way, no giving up cruising, unless you have one booked before Easter!! (Then that would just be pure MADNESS!)

Take Care, All!
Jaime

Well Jaime...throw out the chocolate!

Well, not only did I give up JD, but all hard stuff (wine only for me) AND KayakGuy is giving up soda. I have loads of energy today and my co-workers are threatening to tie me down and pour some down my throat!

All I know is Hubby better bring home roses, and not a heart shaped box of the brown stuff!

Jaime

(And CA, it's hard to throw it out when I have 4 other Chocoholics in the house that didn't give it up, and I'm looking at a dish of Snickers bars as I type! This is gonna be tough!)

I had a good friend in high school who would give up ice cream every Lent. She always said she could indulge on Sundays only so after Mass, she would open Baskin-Robbins. Sounded good to me!

One of the better parts of being a Quaker is that we don't "do" Lent.

I shall go out and purchase some Godiva Liquer and sip away thinking about what the rest of you are giving up
