I've given a lot of thought this year to what I'd like to give up for Lent. For all intents and purposes, because Tony is deployed and won't be back until after Easter, in essence I'm Lenting my husband. And because I'm Lenting my husband (not by choice, mind you) chocolate and Dr. Pepper aren't even an option this year. I mean, on rare occasions they are the high point of my day.
So considering they are two of my three real vices, I guess I will be confessing a horrible secret AND then giving it up for Lent. I am wickedly addicted to People magazine. Tony calls it "smut." If I need a fix and I've already read People that week, I'll stoop to US Weekly. But no more, my friends. For Lent this year, I will be giving up smut. And french fries. Just because.
And because it went so well last year, I'm adding a commitment to write one handmade card a week to an unsuspecting friend or family member. I even made a set of cards last night so I'm all ready to go.
What have you decided to Lent this year??
