Lenten Madness.

See this stuff?  

It's one of my biggest weaknesses in the world.  I know, I know.  It's insanely terrible for you.  But I've loved it for years.  I've quit a few times, but can't seem to quit for good.  And I've gone through a few times in my life that I drink obscene amounts of it every day.  OBSCENE.  I've been getting bad about it since having the boys too (caffeine free though!).  

So this year for Lent I decided to give it up.  Madness people, madness.  Today was my first day sans-DC and I survived.  Sure, I drank a cup of coffee.  But coffee is so much more work than just walking the the fridge and cracking open a can that I'm confident it won't just replace my beloved DC ... it'll just help get me through the mornings.  

The hubby has decided to give up meat.  He has an unhealthy relationship with it.  I mean, he's not a "meat and potatoes" man, he's a "meat" man.  One time at a family gathering he ate 7 steaks.  That's it.  Just beef.  I feel sorry for his GI system.  Of course, because he has given up meat, I'll be eating significantly less of it too. It's a good thing though.  I think it'll shake up the monotony of dinner ideas and open his mind to beans and seafood.  

The next 40 days will be interesting in our house.  We aren't sure who'll be crabbier:  me without Diet Coke or him without meat.  I think both of our money is on me.  Seriously, it's an addiction.  I miss it already....

I write for me. 100%. BUT it definitely makes my day when someone tells me that they enjoy reading my blog. Or that they hate it. Whatev.

So don't spare me your words of wisdom, encouragement, or mindless babble. I enjoy it all :)
