Lent Approacheth

Happy Shrove Tuesday, everyone!

Tomorrow we’ll observe Lent 2010’s official beginning with an Ash Wednesday service. If you are in my area, come on out to my parish & recieve your ashes.

Anyhow, I am fasting from the following:

CHOCOLATE { I’m a choc-o-holic!}This morning I ate an entire giant  bar of dark , rich chocolate for breakfast. Yum! of course I’ll probably be sick top the stomach later thank to my undisciplined chocolate-eating! Dark chocolate is a special weakness of mine & Mom bought me an anti-Valentines’ Day gift of a huge bar of 70 percent dark  chocolate.  It was total bliss!  Mom knows how I feel about Valentines’ Day &  she gets me chocolate anyway.

Alcoholic drinks. I really am not much of a drinker, but I * do* like my  alcohol  during social situations. It calms my social phobia. Last year I stayed sober during my brother’s 30th birthday party due to my Lenten fast{ it wasn’t on a Sunday so I was not free of my Lenten fasting} Ugh.  Family parties on Dad’s side  of my geneology especially, are known for the free flow of the booze , so staying sober at one such party takes a * huge* leap of faith as well as discipline. And, anyone who knows me knows how much I  need discipline. :O)

Cussing. This is gonna be the hardest one from which to abstain. I have a bad habit of stringing together several  cuss words in very creative combinations{ especially when I am mad….wow, look out!} I’ve been cussing often lately at my computer, since my keyboard seems to want to stick together . Grr.  Unfortunately, I can no longer blame football season for  creative use of cuss words.

    I wish I could find the time to write consistantly at my blog, on a day to day basis, like you do. Nicely done! I look forward to your additional article.

    @chels I know what you mean, its hard to find good help these days. People now days just don’t have the work ethic they used to have. I mean consider whoever wrote this post, they must have been working hard to write that good and it took a good bit of their time I am sure. I work with people who couldn’t write like this if they tried, and getting them to try is hard enough as it is.

    This can be wonderful material. You need to submit it to Digg.
