    WEIRD!!!!

    Okay, two days after Lent....I was thinking.....what have I NOT had in the last two days that I can give up......and be successful. WINE! I hadn't had wine in those two days (I usually only drink one glass a week or so), and so I decided.....I'll give up WINE for Lent, no problem. It'll be good for me, blah, blah, blah.

    Well, that lasted exactly.....oh.....one week. I had two glasses last night for Valentine's Day and it didn't occur to me until the second I saw the title of your thread.

    It's official. I'm going to Hell.

    I am so not going to make it.... I thought the same thing you did, this won't be so hard, it's not like I drink all the time...

    ...Well I had a really cr*ppy day and almost did it, but no...I decided to post my misery
    instead (only 34 more days till Easter... I wonder if the kids will servive my giving up wine?)

    I gave up fast food, and that lasted all of about a day. I changed to trying to keep my apartment clean for Lent. The keyword is "trying"... Oh well giving up something for lent isn't supposed to be easy...

    Now that I've been to Paris, I don't think I could ever give up wine.

    Good luck.

    Just for the record ... you are not going to Hell if you don't survive lent ...

    I used to be catholic but I don't remember what I gave up any of the times I gave something up. I do know that I never made it.

    I love this time of year because it's really easy to get into a SteakHouse on a Friday night.

    My best friend is Catholic and on Ash Wednesday she came to work. For one thing, she was mad because the priest didn't put them center on her head.... the cross was up above her right eyebrow.

    My daughter saw my friend and said... "Why the rash on your head?" My friend said, "you mean ASH?" My daughter : "umm... how about dirt?"

    Oy... my kid!
    She walks in beauty, like the night
    Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
    And all that's best of dark and bright
    Meet in her aspect and her eyes.....
