Last night marked the first time that I went to church by myself. Although I was apprehensive about going to a new church by myself, I knew that if it was something I really wanted to do, I just had to do it. I can't keep making excuses. Although the seating arrangement for the service was awkward (we were in a circle...weird), the people were friendly and there were even a few people my age! Maybe I will try them out on a Sunday.

Now on to the important part, what to give up for lent. Ummm. I really enjoy things like facebook, social drinking, candy/junk food, and reality tv. I usually tell myself that I will give those things up next year. Well, this year was no exception.

Although I probably should have put more thought and preparation into this, here is my list that has been narrowed down:

- No complaining: Mallory usually hears most of this, and she is a good sport, but enough is enough.

- Less time on the computer: I can't even begin to list the numerous things I could do if I wasn't on the computer so much. Is it wrong that one of the things I plan on doing instead is conquering Lego Star Wars?

- More home cooking: Please don't look in my freezer. You will find enough frozen dinners to feed a small army.

So, that's my list. Did you give anything up? Do tell!

  1. Pop and candy for me this year. Our office fridge is full of pop and there is a huge supply of chocolate in candy dishes all over our office for when guests/donors stop by. By the end of the day, I've had a Mt. Dew (which all non-diet pop has what equals 10 tsp. of sugar) and about ten peanut butter cups. Horrible. The temptation is awful. I should try the no complaining though, Matt would appreciate it :)
