I know I'm a few days late with this post, but that seems to be the story of my life when it comes to this blog!

Wednesday marked the beginning of the Lenten season (for Catholics) and although I'm not super religious I do follow certain Lenten practices -Gorging myself on Fat Tuesday (what, that's not part of it?), ashes on Ash Wednesday, no meat on holy days and Fridays during Lent and of course giving something. I also usually fast, but decided that this year since I was pregnant I didn't have to -I didn't go to the official Catholic rule book to see if this was accurate, but I figured the big guy would understand. I usually try to give something up for Lent and I figured this year it would be the perfect time to kick some of this sugar habit I've developed while pregnant, but because I'm reasonable (and kind of a wimp), I didn't give up all sugar/dessert... just certain ones. Is that cheating? Probably, but I figure it's better than nothing and it IS a sacrifice...

Anyway, this year Lent has a little extra meaning for me because the end of Lent is Easter and for me that means my due date! Maybe baby G will wait to be delivered by the Easter bunny :)


  1. I had to comment on this one... For Lent, I gave up bought candy. The only candy I'm allowed to eat is candy I make myself. That's my compromise. :D

    (I'm not preggers, so I don't have an excuse though...)

  2. Prin: That's a pretty good one -definitely limits the amount of candy you can eat!
