"" The Exhausted Mom: What Are You Giving Up?

What Are You Giving Up?

I'm Catholic and today is Ash Wednesday.  This is the beginning of the Lenten season.  It is a season of penance, reflection, and fasting.

I'm all about reflecting and giving penance.  I abstain from eating meat on Fridays and I give up some type of luxury for the 40 days of Lent.  

I'm torn between luxuries to give up:
  • sugar
  • dessert
  • chips
  • meat
  • wine let's not get crazy....
It's just 40 short days.  This isn't that bad.  I can do it.
How many days are left?

What are you giving up?



  1. The fact that we have a great blogger event tonight, with yummy foods is putting me in a bind on what to give up!!

  2. I actually don't focus on the giving up which seems superficial, though I do try to do more; focus on prayer daily, maybe read scripter, anything to bring me closer. Most days I'm quite far away :))

  3. no sugar for me for the next 40 days!!
