My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

can't say it better, so I won't try.

For the record. I am giving up "sweets" for Lent...and drinking more (which means any, cuz any is more than none) water. This means, if you start talking about chocolate I WILL get cranky.



Mary Ellen, aka Nunly over at The Bad Habit has put up a wonderful post explaining the whys of Lenten sacrifice....read it and see if you don't think twice about these next few weeks before Easter.

go on and read it....


I double dare ya.

Ok, I'll go read it. And I'll join you in giving up not drinking water.

I took your dare...
Our church has a 40 day study the pastor has designed for us to go through daily during this time. I will be downloading it and working through it :0)

Does this mean you'll get cranky if you visit me?

I should take you up on the drinking water more as I know I don't drink enough of it but I just can't seem to force the stuff down my throat except after 9:00 at night in dispatch when I know full well it will have me up and down all night running to the bathroom! Not smart, eh?

And I will do my best to not mention anything about chocolate. No chocolate-covered pretzels or chocolate-covered strawberries or chocolate-chip cookies or double chocolate cake with a chocolate cream cheese filling or ... !!

good luck! i think chocolate is hard. i'm not supposed to have it at all due to the diabetes, but the longer i try to resist, the harder it gets. therefore, i have a just a tiny bit whenever i feel that chocolate urge threatening to destroy me.

but you are stronger than me and a very good reason to push it away. again, good luck.
