Sorry, Jennifer. My sister said I sounded a bit bitchy and I think I did. I'm sure it's the caffeine withdrawls.

The whole idea behind giving up something for Lent...

The whole idea behind giving up something for Lent or changing something in your routine is to parallel the sacrifice Jesus made by giving us his life for our sins. If it doesn't hurt, don't do it. Obviously He made the extreme sacrifice. If you look up the definition of Lent (if you click on "Lent" in my original post, it will send you to Wikipedia), when you calculate the 40 days between Ash Wed. and Easter, Sundays are excluded. So technically, you can indulge on Sundays. I'm not because it will make Monday that much harder.

I think I will give up Liver for Lent, and while I'm at it I will give up Oysters and Pimento spread. I smell success in my near future!

In the spirit, I, too have decided to give up something, however this year, my neighbor and I twisted it. We decided that we would sacrifice in a different way by committing to exercise AT LEAST 30 minutes a day. I will say we started out really well, but by Sunday we were forced by church and other activities to abandon that practice. Monday we were back on it, but I think our commitment begane to wane. The week has now ended with failure due to appointments pre-scheduled during the week. 30 minutes - that's not much to ask, however it has proven to be a hard one to accomplish. And now it's off on vacation for a few days tomorrow. I wonder if I'll get in my minutes while away? I know one day skiing will count for something! Good luck to all.

As the sister who gave it up, I'm finding it's not so bad. The HAMs and I got together to have dinner and then see a local production of HAIR (yes, complete with nudity) last Saturday night. We met at Rosemary's for take-out, and then got to the "theater" to find the show had filled up - no more seats! Now what do we do? Where do we go? No one wanted to go home, as it was only 8:00. Since we couldn't go just anywhere for "drinks", we went to a coffee shop and sat and talked for two hours. Still a blast when you're with your friends.

This is my fifth year to give up something for Lent. For the past two years I gave up wine and only found it difficult at parties or friend's homes. Since my husband and I have two wine tasting tours planned soon I knew that would not work. So I have given up coffee. Every morning I sleep walk to my coffee maker and see my "Mom's Are Purrrrfect" cup(no one gave it to me, I snagged it at a Christmas exchange)sitting upside down on it and then ask the Lord to get me through one more day. I'm sure my kids and husband were saying the same prayer the first two days of Lent. Not as brave as you, I still drink tea. I miss coffee too much to miss caffeine as well.
