Top Ten Things to Give Up for Lent

10) Your once girlish figure
9) $450 bottles of Dom Perignon
8) Lima beans
7) Trying to adjust to the new Facebook format before they come out with a newer version
6) Triathlons
5) Financial security for your retirement
4) Scrubbing toilets
3) Chia pets
2) Taking any more phone calls from that relentless George Clooney
1) Any hope for spring

Any other foolproof suggestions?


  1. In order to have a better Lenten attitude, making white and grey my favorite colors,
    instead of green and blue.

  2. Amen, sister. I, being BRILLIANT, gave up alcohol. Ask me what kind of a Lent I've had so far. Here's a hint - I had to put down my cat today.

  3. Anon: Ah, but it's March now. Can't be gray and white forever...

    Carrie: I checked out your own website and blog--good stuff! I notice many of my favorite sites among your links, which must be how you found my blog. How's your novel coming along? Thanks for stopping by!

  4. Carrie--And very, VERY sorry about your kitty. I had to do the same thing in November and am still recuperating. I think the Church might allow dispensations for times like this...
