I called my mom. She's not giving chocolate or anything else up. She's going to read the bible everyday.

BuckyTom--how's he feel about me?

Growing up, the only time I ever heard about Lent was when my Catholic friends talked about it. I am a devout Christian, but not all Christian religions follow the practice of Lent.

That said, although I don't follow this practice, I did think about it this morning, and rather than give something up, what I have decided to do is to make a real effort to cut down on my portions when I eat. This has been a big problem for me, especially since we went through a couple really lean years, often only having one small "meal" (a cheap TV dinner, or a can of vegetables) a day. The goal, of course, is to continue this, but I figured that since this is when so many are talking about giving something up, it would be a good time to focus on it.

I'm not Catholic either but I am a Christian (although not a very good one) and instead of observing Lent in the traditional way, I just try and keep what's going on in mind leading up to Easter.

I also look for good fish sammiches. I like me some good fish sammiches! :)

I also love the fact that I can justify going out and getting sea food EVERY Friday night for dinner!

I'm ALWAYS trying to give up swearing. ALWAYS.

I'm also going to make a bigger effort to "turn the other cheek" and not react negatively when I'm provoked.
