The title of this post is supposed to be a play on words... like 'yet again' it's 'lent again'. Meh. I've done better.
Remember last year when I gave up alcohol for Lent? Well, it went so well that I've decided to do it again this year.
I ain't never doing that to myself ever again.
Ok..maybe if I get pregnant I'll go 9 months, but until then I will not deny myself the sauce!
(right now my mother is assembling the team for the intervention).
Seriously though, this year I'm giving up coffee. I've never considered myself a serious coffee drinker-- then again I never thought I was an alcoholic till this time last year. I really do love my morning coffee, especially on Saturday and Sunday mornings; JEGs and I roll out of bed, make our coffee and plop on the couch- he watches Horsepower TV on Spike, while I flip through a magazine. It has become such routine that on these days the first human-like thing I'll mumble to him is "you want coffee?" before we fully wake up.
Whereas last year I gave myself a couple free passes, this year I won't allow it. No coffee will enter my body until Easter morning.
Today, however, I'm treating myself to a big old cup of Dunkin Donuts coffee-- my fav!
Happy Mardi Gras!!
