Lent ... I need some HELP!

  • Okay, I just realized that Ash Wednesday and I was thinking of what to give up for Lent. One year we did no eating out except for Fridays and that was so we could go to Pizza Hut. We saved a ton of $$. This year I want to give up being on the computer. I don't know if I could do it or not though. I would have to be able to check my email once a day & any business stuff I'd need to do but I'd have to do it when DH is home and be timed on how long I could be on there.
    Between TBC, perez hilton, webkinz, email, scrapbooking sites, etc I'm on here all day and it shows!!!
    So if I can do this and pull it off I would not be on TBC at all ... could someone email me if there is any big scoop and when Kelli has her baby??? I most likely would be skipping out on Fantasy Survivor until after Easter, too.

  • one year I gave up my soda pop. That was hard.

    One year, my step dad gave up cheese. That made me angry because we weren't able to do our weekly pizza trip on Mondays (when they had the $7 pizza special).

    it seems the computer is a mighty big thing to give up.

    You can also choose to *do* something instead of give it up.
    like, volunteer an extra 5 hours each week.

  • I'm not sure I could do it-- but it's a good idea to keep things in perspective!

    pm me your email address again and I'll put you on the list for dh to notify

  • I'd never be able to give my computer up for that long! But, good for you for doing it!

  • Okay, I told DH what I was doing and he said I wouldn't be able to do it ... I modified it a bit with I am allowed email, work stuff (website, word/excel), & Brownie stuff (word/excel). I'm just trying to give up what takes away from the family. I don't know if I can do it or not but I'm going to try!!!
    Kelli ~ I PM'd you my email. Thanks for keeping me in the loop!!
    See you guys in 6 weeks!!
