DH gave up Pepsi for Lent. I was sort of surprised he did anything, but he drinks like 80,000 Pepsi's in a week (Yes, I know, 80,000 is impossible.) So, this was big for him. He's struggling with it already. I decided I'd start praying the Rosary once a week. I thought about going daily, but I knew I'd fail that, so I thought I'd start with once a week and see if I could up it later on sometime. So far I'm doing well .

How's your Lent starting?

My trying to be more patient is going pretty well actually. Since I decided to really make an effort about a week ago I've been more patient and calm. And I was tested today, let me tell you.

I'm working on my temper and my potty mouth. So far so good. By making a conscious effort to not let things annoy me, I'm happier already!

That's great ladies. I need to make sure to bring my rosary to Adoration tomorrow so I can make sure to make good on mine.

Yeah, I am giving up my time to pray the rosary, so not really giving up anything, but adding. I made it through 2 weeks having accomplished the goal (if I look at weeks as from Ash Wednesday to the next Wednesday) that is.
