Lent - My favorite time of year!

No! Seriously!  I mean it!

New Year's.  Smoo-Years.  Give me Lent any time!

Okay, so maybe it isn't all fun and games.  Maybe my relationship with Lent  is a little bit of a love/hate relationship.  I love giving things up for Lent.  I love committing to a sacred bond.  And then you know... the week's pass.

Dear God they pass.  And pass and pass.

Exactly how long is 6 freaking weeks anyway?  How can 42 days stretch out into an eternity?  #HOW

But for all my moaning and complaining, Lent sets me up right for the rest of the year.

A little discipline in a life otherwise filled with indulgence.

Um, how many more days of this do I have to go through????? LOL

So if you happen to sit down to a meal with my favorite foods (you know 'em... lasagna, lemon merange pie, Twix) think of me and pray this 6 weeks flies by! :-) :-) :-)


  1. me and dieting and me and working out have this love hate relationship as well.

  2. We all need that little bit of discipline in our lives now and then :) (though I admit I have a love/hate relationship with a few things too) I am sure the time will fly and then you can celebrate with a dinner of lasagna with a desert of Lemon meringue pie topped with Twix.

  3. Good luck!! I'll try to have a twix!

  4. You cruel, cruel woman :-) LOL
