Ok, it's that time again....Lent.
I've been really giving this year's Lent a lot of thought about what to give up.
Last year I gave up sweets.....and it about killed me! As soon as I declared my mouth a sugar-free zone, we have about a bajillion patients come in and bring the most mouth-watering sweets to tempt me! We had apple pie, doughnuts, cakes, cookies, brownies, strussel...you call it a sweet and it came into my office. I swore off giving up anymore sweets (until maybe another Lent down the road).
How do I top sweets?
I've been wracking my brain and really trying to do a good one this year.....
So, this year I'm giving up sweets
(because I am a glutton for punishment and it's good for my hips and thighs)
try to be less negative.
Now, I am not a naturally negative person, but with some things going on in my personal and professional life, I've been a little, well, snappy and I don't like it.
It ain't me.
So we cutting that crap out.
It's not even just a Lent thing, it's a longer than Lent thing.
It's just about being a better person in general.
Although now that I'm thinking about it,
"How am I supposed to be happy and cheerful when I've just deprived myself of any sugar?"
and "Why did I just give up sweets when I just bought Girl Scout Cookies?!"
Hmmmm, pray for me!
....and my co-workers
....and my men at home
Are you giving up anything for Lent? If so, I'll do a drawing and someone could win the chocolate that I can no longer consume! Just leave a message saying what you are giving up for Lent!
P.S. I'm disgruntled about not getting to see the Pioneer Woman who was doing a book signing in downtown Tulsa last night. Huge bummer. Think she'd mind if I just showed up on her ranch and asked for her autograph? Maybe it's for the best that she lives like 2 hours away!
