Lent 2009

Lent in 2009 will start on Wednesday, the 25th of February and will continue for 46 days until Saturday, the 11th of April.


Ok people...it's happening whether you like it or not.
Have you thought about what your Lenten sacrifice will be? Perhaps you're planning to add spiritual/devotional activities to your calendar or volunteer more. Maybe you're planning to give up and give back!

I'm planning to give up all forms of alcohol. Sigh. Bye glass of wine. The kids better be really good!

I think I'll also be trying to do at least one volunteering or donation action every week. Shouldn't be hard what with all the help they need at Head Start. Plus I have boxes of books to donate and tons of clothes to sort through and hand down.

I'm also going to totally ramp up my housekeeping. Maybe I'll make a calendar with at least one big cleaning project on it every day and FORCE myself to do it!

Plus, continuing the working out and eating right plan I'm already on...

Six weeks to change the world!

I have a big task manager calender... it has lots of cleaning tasks on it, if you would like to take a look :)

Going big this year, huh? NO more wine. Are you going to throw a bye-bye wine party? I did for the soda LOL.. drank up all the soda in the house.. of course soda party does not cause you to throw up or pass out. LOL

Well, it's a goal for Lent. It's only 46 days after all.

I just got myself an RSS feed that will tell me every day what chores I have to do. Sweet!

Uh, that seems like a very ambitious Lenten list. I think I will give up work.

It's merely a goal! I think four days into it I will crack, but at least God will know I tried!

Giving up work!?!? Ha! Amy, your work has just begun. :)
